WorkPlace Big Five Profile™ Certification Program (Face-to-Face, WSG Funded)

Unlock Success in the Workplace

Are you looking to enhance your coaching skills? Do you wish to harness the unique strengths, motivations and personality traits of individuals to help them reach peak performance and thrive in their careers?

In this 2-day workshop, you will gain the knowledge, skills and resources to become a certified practitioner of the WorkPlace Big Five Profile™, a widely used psychometric profiling tool that will help you to better understand people – their complexities, strengths and motivations.

Why WorkPlace Big Five

The WorkPlace Big Five Profile™ is based on the Five-Factor Model, the current gold standard of personality measurement by psychologists and researchers.  First introduced by Paradigm Personality Labs (previously known as CentACS) to the business world in the 1990’s, the WorkPlace Big Five Profile™ reveals an individual's 5 personality supertraits and 23 subtraits that simply and clearly explain work-related behaviors.

Reports generated from the WorkPlace Big Five Profile™ can be applied in various human resource initiatives such as career development, job profiling and selection, leadership development, team building, employee engagement and organization development (OD) interventions.  

Based on more than 20 years of proprietary and external research into cognition and personality, the WorkPlace Big Five Profile™ is one of the most psychometrically robust tools on the market.  Its average coefficient alpha of .83 demonstrates that it is one of the most valid and reliable assessments in the industry.

Learn how to interpret the WorkPlace Big Five Profile™ results and leverage on them in the workplace 
Discover the Paradigm People Development (PPD) Model for achieving and sustaining optimal performance

The Great Resignation: Strategies for Talent Attraction and Retention (Event Ended)

 

About this event
A study by McKinsey & Company across five key geographies (Singapore included) reported that 40% of employees are likely to leave their current job in the next 3 to 6 months.
