Practical ideas to support your personal development



An extensive ten-year study has provided insight into what employers regard as the most valuable applied skills – the key work approaches which are in greatest demand across all sectors today. This research identified the personal qualities and approaches most commonly associated with successful outcomes in role. While qualifications and technical skills remained important; interpersonal skills, the ability to get on with others and being able to express yourself with clarity and confidence, were the approaches most often linked to long-term success at work. Working with the University of Hull, we are currently testing a prototype version of the popular paper-based skills assessment which has been used to help people adapt to the ever-changing world of work and take charge of their career.

The Revelation Assessment explores your responses to many of the factors associated with success at work. It encourages you to reflect on the strength of your existing preference (not necessarily your ability level) for each item. This free BETA version of the assessment takes only a few minutes to complete and will provide you with a number of proven suggestions to extend performance - plus the option to receive a more comprehensive report which will include a host of practical ideas to apply in your role.

To support your professional growth, you will receive a selection of easy-to-manage development options, mapped against your own responses, plus details on how to receive a complete Revelation Development Profile®. Each of these reports can assist with coaching, mentoring, career management, constructive feedback, performance appraisals, training needs analysis, action planning and goal setting.
