Talent Integrator — Working with Aggregated Propensity Data

We offer a 1-Day hands-on workshop that helps Certified Propensity Management Practitioners use our unique Talent Integrator. This web-based application enables fully customized searches of aggregated propensity data that predict the probability of an individual achieving high performance in a career area, from a staffer to the CEO. If integrated with an organization’s HRIS, these searches can expand to report on career aspirations, education, credentials, and experience, a capability that simplifies sophisticated talent decision-making.  

The data management challenge

Working with aggregated propensity data for a small group of individuals can be time consuming and error prone. If an organization has 1,000 employees and benchmark data against hundreds of position benchmarks, the consolidated information becomes huge. Making sense of large volumes of data effectively and efficiently, requires an efficient, easy to use, query tool. Our Talent Integrator serves this purpose.

It provides a quick and easy way for practitioners to:

  • Compare extensive profiles

  • Generate work group profiles

  • Visualize workforce propensity distributions

  • Analyze aggregate team and organizational data

+ Read More

Organizational Benefits The Talent Integrator helps practitioners manage and manipulate aggregate propensity data to help the organization quickly and easily:

  • Identify internal candidates for positions based on predicted suitability and satisfaction to increase intrinsic motivation, the probability of high performance, and retention
  • Diagnose the behavioral contributions to systemic human performance challenges
  • Enhance team dynamics, capacity, and functionality by adding required behavioral competencies to teams, including leadership competencies.
  • Streamline investment in talent and development by screening for propensities that can realistically be enhanced through training
  • Systematically diversify organizational propensities to build a workforce that is agile and resilient in changing circumstances
  • Resource project teams and seed new talent with the capacity for change
  • Make resourcing decisions that optimize placement of required talent throughout an organization’s structure
  • Anticipate workforce behavioral challenges in relation to proposed organizational strategy changes
 
 
 

 How you can Ensure the Right Fit between People, Tasks, Teams, Structures and Strategies

 

To build the momentum for high organizational performance using Propensity Management, individuals, teams and leaders need to understand their contributions.  Our training-for-trainers workshops equip Certified Practitioners to build that understanding quickly and easily.

Re-engagement Intensive Retreats

Sometimes people have to take time out in order to be ready to put more in

When your spirits are high and life is flowing, everybody wins, but demanding schedules, workplace conflict, and pressures for change can dampen our spirits and engagement of even the most dedicated individuals.

When this problem happens, you need to step back, regroup, and reconnect with what matters most to you. The decision is always personal ,but organizations can help with re-engagement.

Our Self-Leadership Intensives are designed to help you come home to themselves – to reconnect soul and role and to reawakenpassion, courage, and engagement through self-discovery, rejuvenation, and new ways of seeing.

 
 
 

Making the Most of Your One Wild and Precious Life: A Courage &Renewal Retreat™ for the Work-Weary

All too often we look to family, friends, and sometimes professionals to help us find answers on what will give meaning and purpose to our lives. If we are very lucky, we recognized our true path early and began the lifelong journey of growing and unfolding into our best life. But most of us know there is more we need to discover about who we are and what will satisfy our innermost wants, needs and potentials.  Since we’ve been searching for a long time, we are weary. 

Congruence between our inner lives and outer actions is what our soul longs for.  When we live without alignment with our inner voice our spirit suffers, and stress abounds.

Our soul yearns for wholeness, which comes from embracing our strengths and our weaknesses, our light and our shadows,our needs and our potentials. 

+ Learn More

To make the most of our one wild and precious life we need to understand where our greatest joy meets the world’s greatest need. Then can we know fulfillment.

In this retreat we will explore questions of passion and propensities, purpose and potential, to help us choose directions that will allow us to live in alignment with our deepest values and act with integrity and authenticity in our daily lives.

This retreat nourishes learning, reflection, clarity, and insight in a safe, quiet, nurturing, and confidential environment.

We explore both outside-in and inside-out views of ourselves. We facilitate insights, not only by self-observation, but by extending our inner and outward understanding with poetry, music, artwork, and readings from the great wisdom traditions.

On your journey of discovery, you will enjoy periods of quiet self-reflection, large and small group sharing, and, as the revelations unfold, instances of inviting laughter and lightness.

Clearness Committee, a 400+ year old Quaker process of discernment is the capstone of this retreat offering individuals the gift of honest, open questions to deepen personal inquiry.

Who should participate: This retreat welcomes leaders who are seeking to illuminate their own life journey, enhance their self-leadership in life and leadership of others at work, and bring greater integrity and wholeness to their organizations or communities.

Making the Most of Strengthen your Courage to Lead with Integrity and Heart: A Courage &Renewal Retreat™

At its very core, leadership is a daily, ongoing practice aimed at becoming our best self and inviting others to do the same. It is about being willing to take the initiative to enable and build momentum for ideas, directions, or way of being or doing that have meaning and value to ourselves and others.

The strength and resilience required come from knowing the ground on which we stand, and the convictions we will act upon with courage.  Both grow out of self-knowledge.

Inside each of us is an essential self that we must be in touch with and hear the voice of.  It has integrated all our skills, talents, experience, competencies and capacities, as well as the facts we have gathered.  When we hear it, it becomes our accessible and authentic guide for our actions and choices.  

This wise inner leader continues to grow and yet somehow, deep down, remains constant.

+ Learn More

Fundamental to cultivating courageous leadership is developing trust in this essential self, and through it, trusting in others, and the workability of life overall.

As we become more aware of our strengths, limitations and guiding values we gain the courage to be fully engaged, to take risks, to care deeply, and take principled action even in the midst of change and uncertainty.

Becoming more self-aware requires both individual introspection and a supportive community.

In this retreat, together with around 20 other people, we will create a space for honest dialogue and non-judgmental listening, practicing ways of relating that will help us be more present with ourselves and each other. We will have the opportunity to:

• Be more present with ourselves and each other

• Focus, without distraction, on what matters, especially our values, vision, challenges and fears

• Gain a new depth of self-knowledge

• Discover a process for discernment to reach clarity around questions of life and leadership

• Experience The Courage Way to invite and hold people accountable for co-creating trustworthy space

• Learn leadership principles and practices that can be applied to daily life and work

The ‘way in’ to self-reflection will be two-fold: through an outside-in exploration of ‘me in the world’, and an inside-out view of ‘the world in me.

To facilitate the two kinds of self-reflections we’ll use images, evocative texts, music, and impressions from the natural world to aide in this self-discovery process.

There will be time for individual reflection and journaling, as well as large- and small-group work in which stories of our own lives and leadership experiences can be shared.

Being a wise and skilled leader is not something we arrive at one day, fully formed and complete. It takes ongoing personal and professional growth through reflection on our internal landscape and weather.

Only we can see inside ourselves, but what we do with what we learn can make the night-and-day difference for ourselves and the people around us.

Clearness Committees, a 400+ year old Quaker process of discernment will serve as the capstone of this retreat (www.couragerenewal.org/clearnesscommittee), offering individuals the gift of honest, open questions to deepen their personal inquiry.

Who should participate: This retreat welcomes leaders who are seeking to illuminate their own life journey, enhance their self-leadership in life and leadership of others at work, and bring greater integrity and wholeness to their organizations or communities.
