Benefits of the Working Genius Assessment

Discover the GIFTS you bring to work

Working Genius is an innovative assessment that helps people understand where they fit in a team, how they add the most value and the secret to fulfillment & satisfaction at work. 

Working Genius is 80% productivity, 20% personality, and focuses on the process of getting work done in a team.  It’s quick, practical, and immediately applicable.

Why is this Important?

Far too many people in the world suffer needlessly because they don’t understand their personal strengths. Without this insight, they end up filling their days with tasks that are draining & demoralizing. 

The outcomes are disheartening:

  1. People feel guilt and lose confidence in their abilities. 
  2. Teams make inaccurate and hurtful judgements about one another.
  3. Organizations miss targets and don’t realize their potential. 
Thankfully, these outcomes are easily avoidable.
Working Genius can show you how.

TEAM TRANSFORMATION IN two fundamental ways

  1. Individual team members can increase their productivity and morale by maximizing the time spent in their areas of Genius and minimizing the time they spend in their Frustrations.
  2. A team can significantly increase their success by ensuring they have all six of the Geniuses required to get something done.

How Does the Working Genius Assessment work?

the Six STAGES OF WORK 

As it turns out, there are six different stages involved in going any kind of work. Each Genius contributes to the flow of work. 

For each individual:

  • Two come naturally to you, you are good at them and they give you energy. We call these your Working Geniuses.
  • Two are neither natural nor energizing for you, and you likely aren’t good at them. We call these your Working Frustrations.
  • Finally, two fall in the middle. You may do them well but you don’t derive great joy or energy from them. We call these your Working Competencies.
