The Professional Compass

The Professional Compass is a tool for rapid professional potential analysis

As a coach or HR manager, potential analysis of your counterpart is usually the first step in a personal consultation, a coaching or in recruitment interviews.

What if you could do this analysis of the actual situation and possibilities in a simpler, faster, more acceptable, more encouraging and more trusting way?

With the Professional Compass, this is now possible. Expand your qualification with a standardized approach for greater efficiency - and recognize at a glance who is sitting in front of you and how they make the most of their potential. The actual advice within the scope of your individual coaching, training and seminars can start faster and you have the already completed and the possible development of your coachee firmly in view.

Answer professional questions faster with the Professional Compass

  • Why am I the way I am?
  • What potential is created in me?
  • To what extent do I use it?
  • How did I become who I am today?
  • And why do I behave this way in certain situations?
  • Why are people so similar and yet so different?
  • Why do I get along better with some people than with others?

In the professional environment, there are questions from HR managers and executives:

  • What kind of ”type” is the employee or applicant?
  • Does it fit the company and its culture, the team and the tasks?

Of course, the person is asking similar questions himself.

The Professional Compass helps you to answer these questions very efficiently.

How the Professional Compass can do that

The Professional Compass enriches your individual coaching, seminars and training as a scientifically sound tool. It supports a systemic and process-oriented way of working. It shows your client in an appreciative way their individual and basic personality shares and potentials.

After your coachee has answered detailed, purposeful questions about its characteristics and inclinations both ”in the rearview mirror” (characteristics and influences) and forward-looking (image and effect in the professional environment), you will receive a meaningful evaluation:

  • graphical and numerical representations of the personality traits
  • multi-page, individual analysis in text form

Causes of current problems can be quickly identified and developed to positive. The simple presentation of results and the interpretation aids ensure a fast acceptance of the Professional Compass results. You can define, target and set off with your client much faster.

To quickly determine the status quo, you can use the Professional Compass both at the beginning of a developmental process as well as to control progress.
