You want your employees to be happier, more content, and more productive, right? Of course you do. They want that, too. So, we all want the same thing. There’s just one little problem: managing each employee in the same exact way rarely accomplishes this. Why? Because each person has their own unique value that stems from the way they fascinate others.
The Fascination Advantage assessment not only helps your employees understand their own unique value, it also gives you a fresh perspective on management. When you understand how to manage the different types of Fascination Advantages, you help each employee become more fascinating. In turn, you help them become more persuasive to clients, and more influential in the workplace.
But wait (as they say)… there’s more.
When you help an employee become more fascinated with their work, our research show that this makes them more loyal, and more productive.
But you have to take the primary fascination Advantage into account to make any this work, because it matters—deeply. Take the PASSION Advantage, for example. Here is what our research has told us about managing employees with primary PASSION Advantage:
- PASSION employees are social and want to be at the heart of the activity. Properly coached, they build close bonds with clients and co-workers. For example, they often provide outstanding customer service, because they instinctively understand how to immediately solve others’ emotional needs.
- PASSION employees naturally form bonds with others. As a result, they excel in introductions and pitches. They connect more quickly than those with primary MYSTIQUE and ALERT Advantages.
- PASSION employees tend to be intuitive thinkers. Make sure that they understand your expectations, because their expressive nature and intuitive skill means they might tend to “wing it” rather than follow protocol, as a TRUST personality would.
- PASSION employees want to frequently communicate face-to-face. They thrive on direct human contact. Give them plenty of opportunity to interact with customers, with you, and with each other. Ignored, their enthusiasm and energy will putter out.
All of these traits contribute to what makes a PASSION employee fascinating. If you understand how to harness a PASSION Advantage, you won’t just have more content people, you’ll have a better, more fascinating company.
Who are your PASSION employees? Do you know? Would you like to find out?
