The Portrait Process*

The Portrait Process© provides a "mirror" offering increased self-awareness and represents the greatest single opportunity to leverage interpersonal integrity and effectiveness. Objective behavior information obtained through an in-depth effectiveness study helps leaders recognize their strengths and vulnerabilities. The Portrait© is more than a snapshot. The interpretation and application of the data capture the capacity and the potential of the individual. Our Portrait Process© answers six key questions by assessing, presenting and validating, with precision, the nature of an individual's leadership potential.

  1. How well does the individual listen?
  2. Does the individual communicate effectively?
  3. What is his or her clarity on issues?
  4. How will this person tend to move vision to action?
  5. Will cultural concepts be readily translated into operating behaviors?
  6. What will be the time-frame for engaging team members?

Our measurements address:

  1. problem-solving (strengths and vulnerabilities)
  2. operational preferences (prioritizing, details, interpersonal ease and creativity)
  3. internal motivations (consistencies and conflicts)
  4. external behaviors (tendencies and habits - constructive or counter-productive)
  5. leadership-management (task versus people and security versus self-actualization)
  6. decision-making (options desired and time-frames needed)

The Portrait© provides insights that enable our clients to know when, where and how to function more effectively. Interpersonal integrity causes executives to be more at ease with their leadership responsibilities, supervisory roles, and organizational relationships. The Portrait© provides an accurate mirror for leaders as they build on their interpersonal integrity. The team application of the Portrait© process creates an environment between and among team members that fosters trust and loyalty, enhancing productivity.

The Portrait© serves as a building block to improve communications with colleagues. By learning more efficient ways to understand, appreciate and accommodate diverse management styles, productivity can be increased. Six benefits for those who leverage insights from the Portrait© process:

  1. Refined listening skills
  2. Faster communication
  3. Clarity on issues
  4. Vision which calls for action
  5. Culture that shapes operating behavior
  6. Team member engagement

If you and/or your associates would like to function more effectively, let us know.
