Learning Profiles™ and Assessments
Learning Profiles are a group of assessments that assess styles, competencies,
and commitment using a common question format and reporting output.
The range of topics spans nearly every major category of interpersonal
skills useful in a business setting. Time management, customer commitment,
and personal stress are 3 examples.
HRD Press Learning Profiles provide three valuable sources of information:
- Your personal profile will answer questions such as, "are you good
at time management and in what areas of time management are you better
- Your development priorities translate your individual profile into
a specific, actionable list of targets designed to help you improve
- Coaching recommendations provide behavioral tips and practices that
can be used to immediately begin improving a skill area.
Learning Profiles can be completed in about 10 minutes and participants
instantly get a comprehensive feedback report. Both 180° and 360° feedback
can be accommodated with all our Learning Profiles.
