Next Event for 2018

Tuesday 18th September at The Naval Club, 38 Hill Street, London W1 - 10am to 4pm

'Leadership and Development: Transitioning from Middle to Senior Management'

Click Here for the Flyer and to Book, for more information please contact Caro Leitzell at admin@psychometricsforum.org

 

Any transition requires a level of insight into which attitudes and behaviours need to change and which may still be fit for purpose. Transitions at work are also made within a ‘goldfish bowl’ and the consequences of making an unsuccessful transition can have far-reaching consequences for the individual, their family and the organisation within which they are placed. We have two skilled coaches sharing their experiences of supporting people through those leadership transitions.

The Speakers:

Prof. Jill Flint-Taylor BSocSc (Hons), MSocSc, PhD.Jill Flint Taylor

In the move from middle to senior management, it's often a case of "what got you here won't get you there". Or more accurately, how to make the most of your proven strengths while flexing your approach to give your leadership greater breadth and depth. Psychometric measures are particularly useful in this context, as they go beyond how someone does things currently. They provide insights into areas of potential that haven't been encouraged to flourish in a career to date, as well as flagging up strengths they individuals may be at risk of overplaying. Psychometrics can also help to identify characteristics that underpin success in an operational role, but often get in the way of contributing to strategy and innovation at senior levels. The session will also look at how to choose a test or questionnaire that suits your purpose, meets the required standards and has a positive impact in helping to nurture talent.  Jill is an Adjunct Faculty member and Professor of Organizational Psychology at Ashridge Executive Education at Hult International Business School. The focus of her research and practice is the psychology of assessment, leadership and resilience. She works mainly with clients in professional and financial services, international development, central government, and the health sector.

 

Dr. Angelina Bennet BSc (Hons), MSc, DProf, C.Psychol. Angelina Bennet

The MBTI® is one of the most popular tools used by coaches in the UK  (McDowall & Smewing, 2009) and it is seen as particularly useful for leadership development.  Most coaches will use it to promote self-awareness and introduce the idea of adapting one’s behaviour to improve communication and relationships to suit a variety of types.  Whilst this is a great use of Psychological  Type, and certainly a good starting point, how do we use the model to facilitate actual transformational growth?  In this session Angelina will introduce a model that combines Psychological Type with Ego Development theory (Loevinger, 1976; Cook-Greuter, 2004) supported by aspects of her doctoral research thesis and her book The Shadows of Type: Psychological Type through Seven Levels of Development.  This model provides the opportunity to use Psychological Type for transformational growth within the individual.  Reference will also be made to the MBTI®Step III™ instrument and how it can be useful for transformational coaching
