ACHIEVE HIGH PERFORMANCE, CONSISTENTLY
Why are some high performers better than others? Why do we spend so much on talent, but see so little benefit? Why is talent not always transferable? Fit casts away the myths and challenges conventional thinking on talent and performance to reveal the critical impact personality and fit has on an individual and their role, team or organisation.
Using the dynamic Hogan Personality Profiles, Warren Kennaugh helps you uncover the factors that can lead to performance failure, and shows how to find the ideal balance between activities and performance to ensure actions are sustainable and repeatable. Learn how to:
- identify successful patterns of behaviour that can be easily replicated
- determine derailing factors and learn how to minimise their impact on your reputation
- use motives, values and preferences to maximise engagement
- understand drivers to improve performance.
Discover why star performance is less about what you do, and more about how you do it, why you do it, and where you do it. With Fit′s simple steps, learn how to achieve high performance in any situation and find the right fit for you.
