The Aspire Innermetrix personal assessment complement allows us to integrate the WHAT, the WHY and the HOW of human performance. It provides powerful insights and potential opportunities for transformational change. The trio of assessments provides an incredibly robust and holistic view of any individual. The unique structure and format of the profiles allows for more expanded and individualized information than other current utilized profiles while importantly adhering to the original science on which they are based.
The Aspire Attribute Index provides information about WHAT our natural talents are. The Index provides organizations with a powerful way to maximize their human capital-their people. The Attribute Index is unique in the market place as it is based on the work of Dr. Robert Hartmann. His work is said to have done for social science what Newton did for natural science. It is based on deductive rather than inductive processes.
The Index has been proven and validated through separate studies for over 20 years. It reveals our clarity and preference in each of the three distinct decision making/thinking styles, based on over fifty years of scientific research. Each of us makes decisions in these three ways, but we tend to have greater clarity in some and develop a preference for one more than the other two. This preference becomes a subconscious force, affecting the decisions we make on a daily basis and shaping how we perceive ourselves as well as the world around us.
The Aspire Values Index is a combination of the research of Dr. Eduard Spranger and Gordon Alport and provides the WHY behind the use of our natural talents.
The seven dimensions of value discovered between these two researchers help understand the reasons that drive an individual to use their talents in the way they do.
This Values Index helps individuals understand their motivators and drivers and how to maximize their performance to achieve better alignment and passion for what they do.
The Aspire DISC Index is a modern interpretation of Dr. William Marston’s behavioral dimensions. It is the HOW you prefer to use those talents. Marston’s research uncovered four quadrants of behavior which help to understand a person’s behavioral preferences. This Disc Index helps you understand your behavioral style and how to maximize your potential.
When you bring these three assessments together, you get the WHAT, the WHY and the HOW of an individual, i.e., WHAT natural talents do he/she have, WHY is he/she motivated to use them, and HOW does he/she prefer to use them. This combination of talents, values and behaviors comprise the very core of who we are and make us the unique individual we see in the mirror every morning.
Authenticity can be defined as using the right talents, for the right reason, in the right way. Research reveals that the more authentic a person is to their natural talents behaviors and values, the more successful they are. This trio of assessments helps individuals and the organizations in which they work understand how to maximize the potential of themselves and each individual, and how best to put the combinations of their talents values and behaviors together.
