Interpretation of the ProfessionalProT
The ProfessionalProT measures 8 separate character traits which include both the powerful and neutralizing aspects of personality. This allows for the formation of a profile which can be compared to norms for other professionals. The profile created provides very useful information about the individual's fit to a professional consulting role.
In addition, the ProfessionalProT measures self confidence, lifestyle management, listening style and the individual's attitudes about networking, self promotion and managing rejection.
All these factors are presented in an easy to interpret fashion with selection questions and coaching suggestions included.
The Science of Normative Profiling
The ProfessionalProT is based on the POPT (Personal Orientation Profile). The POP is a normative personality profile which was developed in the late 1970's using advanced statistical methods in psychometric research. The POP has been an industry leader for selecting competitive sales people for over 20 years. It has been under constant development since its inception and is now widely used throughout North America and other parts of the world. The POPT scales are used widely for matching personality to career path and selection for a wide variety of careers.
Normative profiling is acknowledged as the appropriate approach to scientific selection because a normative profile such the ProfessionalProT allows scores from different candidates to be compared with each other and the population of professional people. The ProfessionalProT also allows for the building of mathematical models of each enterprise and the study of the relevant success factors in each role. Other factors such as education, recruiting sources, regional differences and other demographics can be analyzed as well providing strategic management with information that may have been missing using other selection methods.
