Development doesn’t look the same for everyone. Although end goals can be the same, the paths to get there are varied and numerous. Empowering your employees to take development into their own hands is crucial to helping them evolve.
What’s the best way to help them? Give them the appropriate tools and resources to get the most out of their development. Since development needs to align with an individual’s role, needs, and career aspirations, start where the employee is today.
Do it right by starting off right.
Find out where individuals are before deciding on the best development path for them. A good place to start is with the Korn Ferry Leadership Architect™ suite. Tools in this suite are research-based, time-tested, and completely integrated. Included in the suite is our competency-based multi-rater feedback assessment, Voices®.
Voices® enables a research-based and scientifically validated assessment of an individual’s competencies. It helps individuals understand their strengths and weaknesses, identify developmental needs, and enhance their self-awareness. It also provides a foundation for other leadership development efforts, such as executive coaching, developmental assignment, and management training.
Follow up with targeted tools.
Put your talent on a path to personal development with our library of tools. A follow-up assessment to Voices®, Development Tracker® can be used to track progress made on specific competencies that have been selected for development.
FYI® for your improvement is an easy-to-use competency development and coaching tool that is useful for motivated people with development potential. By providing practical remedies and valuable development tips, it allows individuals to leverage strengths and develop areas of weakness identified by the Voices® 360 assessment.
Increase workplace effectiveness with the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI), a self-assessment that helps a participant identify their type preferences using the dimensions of operating style identified by Carl Jung, Kathryn Briggs, and Isabel Myers. To get the most out of the MBTI we recommend YOU: Being More Effective in Your MBTI Type, a research-based guide that provides an understanding of each of the 16 types, as well as helpful tips for communicating effectively across types.
