Finding and hiring top talent is on every business leader’s radar. And many use behavioral assessments to improve the hiring process and ensure they get the right talent in the right position. Find out how Career Visioning and the Keller Personality Assessment (KPA) is helping leaders align talent with opportunity.
In 2016 Keller Williams introduced the Career Visioning course and the KPA, an upgrade to the previous assessment, the AVA and DISC. “The AVA allowed us to look at four dimensions of a candidate,” Leslie Vander Gheynst, KPA and Leverage Series driver, says. “The KPA allows us to look at 11 components of a candidate to give us an even more holistic view of a candidate allowing us to know the person on a deeper level.”
The KPA is specifically designed to measure personality traits and cognitive thinking abilities. “Understanding a candidate’s unique talents and personality traits helps you align their personal goals with your business growth,” says John Davis, president of Keller Williams Realty.
Career Visioning, along with the KPA, provides proven hiring systems to ensure that the best and the brightest join your team and take your business to the next level. It also underlines the importance of having a system in place for recruiting and hiring. “Career Visioning breaks down the hiring process into manageable steps so that anyone can fi nd, interview, hire and train the right talent,” Vander Gheynst says. “ is course is for everyone looking to grow their team. As the KPA and Leverage Series driver, I am here to provide assistance to our agents in the fi eld through the hiring process.”
KW Regional Director John Schumacher first taught Career Visioning and introduced the KPA in his region in the summer of 2016. “The beauty of the KPA is in its simplicity. The process is turnkey and far less complicated. Much of the analysis is done for you and we’re not being asked to become amateur psychologists.”
As for those associates who want to use the KPA without first taking Career Visioning, “It shouldn’t be happening because it is part of a larger process,” says KW Regional Director and Career Visioning instructor Madison Offenhauser. “Learning how someone thinks is critical to successful hiring, and Career Visioning helps people understand not just the KPA, but the entire hiring process.”
Now is the time to get into business with top talent and master the process of truly understanding a person’s personality and behavior.
