Why choose 20Q Personality Profiles?
You may have heard of - or even completed - a psychological profiling tool like Myers Briggs or the Enneagram. These are well-established tools for exploring psychological types. But our experience of working with thousands of teachers - using a variety of psychological profiling tools - convinces us that 20Q Personality Profiles is the most user-friendly, insight-producing diagnostic of its kind.
Personality Profiles arose out of our work on leadership programmes. Repeatedly we found growing leaders who were trying to model themselves on someone else - and feeling frustrated (and guilty) as a result. The truth is that we have different kinds of personality. If we try to be someone else we come across as inauthentic. Personality Profiles help leaders develop self awareness and insights into how to work with the grain of who they are. They also provide guidance into how to get the best out of colleagues. Different personalities respond best to being treated in different ways.
Increasingly schools have the responsibility for providing their own CPD.
Personality Profiles are ideal for use:
- by individuals on a leadership courses, or receiving coaching
- by whole teams looking to improve teamwork and mutual understanding
- by whole schools looking to develop a healthy culture in which everyone feels valued, respected and trusted to do their best
- By individuals who value their own personal and professional development
Once someone has signed up, there are 20 Questions to answer to provide the information needed to create the Personality Profile. Unlike a 360° Diagnostic there is no need for raters, so the whole process takes little time.
This generates a 20-page report explaining about the different elements that make up each profile and the implications of your own unique profile. Guidance is provided to work through a process of reflection to understand the implications of your profile and to consider the kinds of people you currently work with.
