Personal coaching organizations including Franklin Covey, Professional Education Institute and others, leading authors like Robert Kiyosaki, Jack Canfield, Steven Covey, Zig Ziglar, Denis Waitley, Brian Tracy, and hundreds of coaches utilize the Winslow Reports in their programs. Your Winslow Report is prepared from the results of the Winslow Dynamics Profile, a validated personality assessment instrument that measures personality traits. This comprehensive Profile measures the 24 personality characteristics related to career success and personal contentment. The Profile is Internet based, user-friendly, and enables you to complete the Profile at your location and convenience. The Profile takes less than one hour to complete, and your results are available on the Internet shortly after the Profile is complete. From the results of your Profile a 45 to 55 page Report will be created that presents objective information on your personality, behavior and attitudes. With this information you can capitalize on your personality assets, modify your personality, and control your behavior. The results will help you achieve success in your career and contentment in your personal lifestyle. In addition to personal development, your Report can be used for pre-marital preparation, enhance marriage and family relations, and other applications.

ATTITUDE

Of all of the physical and mental traits possessed by a human being that will separate one person from the next, attitude stands alone as the great divide between average performance and peak performance. If you want peak performance then you must be willing to invest in the development, maintenance and protection of a world-class attitude. The first step in improvement is measurement. You improve what you measure.  Let's take a few minutes and let's assess the incredibly important personal asset that you have called your Attitude.

PEOPLE SKILLS

Can you think of any skill that transcends more areas of your life beyond peoples kills? Probably not. Whether you are looking to make a career change, develop a friendship, succeed as a spouse or parent, grow a business, deal with a disappointed customer or client, deal with a difficult person, influence others or simply go through life as effectively as possible, people skills touch every area of your life today and tomorrow. Assess your current state regarding this critical life skill set as a beginning point of creating Enhanced People Skills.

LEADERSHIP

Sometimes leadership comes from natural gifts.  More often leadership comes from learned skills. Becoming a leader is not about position, it is about a decision and a commitment. The first step in improving in any area in life is to measure.  You improve what you measure.  Taking this assessment specific to leadership is a great first step in beginning what will hopefully be a lifelong commitment to yourself to become a great leader in your life.

TEAM BUILDING

Have you worked for teams where everyone pitches in, and you all work together in perfect harmony? Do you always play to your strengths in a team, or are there times when the group you're in just doesn't gel? Either way, teamwork is such a vital way of completing projects that it's worth developing and refining the skills that will help you make a valuable contribution to whichever type of team you're in.

Teams are created for several reasons. They may need to deliver a one-time project, or work together on an ongoing basis. What does this mean for you? Well, teams are probably an integral part of how things are done in your organization. If you show that you have the ability to work well with others, this could have a major impact on your career. Whatever your strengths, you have something valuable to offer. Find a role within your team that allows you to do what you do well.
