Using personality assessments as a reference point, Dr. Nelsen can help you understand why your employees may be under-performing or engaging in conflict with others. Personality traits manifest themselves in behaviors, for better or for worse, and Dr. Nelsen can help you discover ways to manage and motivate individual employees based upon their individual personalities. Not only can Dr. Nelsen determine what motivates each employee, but she can determine how a manager and employee can interact in the most positive ways based upon the manager’s personality as well. Dr. Nelsen will even give you tips on what to say and how to say it in order to bring out the best in an employee.
We’re all different, and we naturally get along better with some people than with others. When two or more people in a department don’t get along, it can wreak havoc not only in the department but throughout the organization. The two keys to resolving conflict are understanding and communication. Once each party understands the other’s underlying motivations and hang-ups, they can forge a path to open communication and reduced conflict. Dr. Nelsen guides employees through the process of understanding each other and helps them open communication channels in order to improve working relationships.
Good managers see potential in employees and develop them for the benefit of both the employee and the organization. Dr. Nelsen can help in this process by helping to determine the types of jobs specific employees are best suited for based upon their unique personality characteristics. It’s natural to promote stellar performers to supervisory and management roles, but sometimes, that’s not the best decision. Technically-oriented people, for example, may be top-notch performers in their current role but may fail miserably when placed into a role that requires them to interact and provide feedback to people on a regular basis. If this happens, the organization runs the very real risk of losing an employee altogether because the employee was placed in a role ill-suited to his personality. Dr. Nelsen can help you avoid this risk by helping to determine the best succession plan for an employee.
