Assessments, Profiling and Evaluations

Ancient Greek philosophers implored humanity to "know thyself". This principle for living a full life remains important today, yet many individuals and executives rush to decisions without first exploring themselves as individuals, as couples, as teams, as workplace cultures.

At Karina Butera Consulting we advocate conducting thorough assessments as part of any attempt to create relationship change. We are able to assist you in evaluated your current reality through a wide range of behavioural, psychological, team and organisational profiling tools.

To complete a jigsaw puzzle without all the pieces will not lead to a satisfying result. Likewise, to conduct any sort of project without first fully assessing the needs and factors in play, will not lead to the best possible result.

Exploratory assessments help us delve beneath the surface of a perceived problem or dilemma. They will not solve our problems, but they will give us important information as a foundation; they help us measure our results and they give us a useful language to use as our project unfolds.

It can be tempting to skip full assessments as part of cost-cutting. However, money saved in the early stages inevitably is lost later through budget blow-outs of the project, stalling or undermining achievement of the best results. The irony is that assessments conducted through Karina Butera Consulting are often arranged at very little cost to the customer.

Below are some of the tools that we can use to assist your business and staff.

Extended DISC™

Extended DISC™ is a leading personal behaviour assessment tool and Karina's personal favourite for understanding personal relationship, communication and working styles, as well as key motivators.

Extended DISC™ is now used in over 50 countries, has been translated into 55 languages and has extremely high reliability.

Human Synergistics

Human Synergistics has become an incredibly popular approach many large organisations have used to explore and improve the culture of their organisations.

When used as a top-down approach, and when undertaken on an organisational basis, this is an extremely powerful method of transforming cultures.

Clifton StrengthsFinder

Originally developed from theology, it found such success in congregations and religious leadership, that soon it found its way into corporate boardrooms.

The Clifton StrengthsFinder will lead you to recognising your greatest individual strengths and areas of highest development potential. The point is to focus on what strengths make you unique.

360° Evaluations

360° feedback has proven to be one of the most effective tools used to fast-track professional development. Although self-assessment is useful, many of us have a limited perception of how others view the quality of our work.

Conflict Dynamics Profile

The Conflict Dynamics Profile (CDP) is an assessment instrument that helps you reduce conflict in the workplace.

It assists in identifying the level of skill individuals and teams have in expressing emotion, communicating constructively, resolving conflict and negotiating solutions.

NBI Whole Brain Thinking

Whether our right or left side is dominant will impact our "thinking preferences".

Essentially NBI will weight an individual’s preferences in four key areas, and eight dimensions.
