Arbinger's assessments highlight policy, practice, structure, and procedure gaps, along with mindset perception so your organization can optimize your workforce to improve performance.
Everyone operates somewhere along a continuum from inward to outward. Our position on that continuum profoundly affects our performance, influence, and individual effectiveness. Similarly, the collective mindset of an organization shapes its culture and performance.
This 20-question Mindset Assessment gauges an individual’s perception of their own mindset as well as that of their organization. In addition to indicating location along the inward mindset-outward mindset continuum, the results provide additional insight into specific areas of strengths and opportunities. When organizations field this survey widely, they receive detailed insights into employees’ experience and perception of their work.
Although anyone is welcome to take the Mindset Assessment at any time, we strongly recommend taking it at the start of work with Arbinger to set a baseline, then periodically reassessing to gauge progress and adjust efforts as needed.
Upon completion of the assessment, we present an analysis of the findings along with recommendations for steps to take to improve individual and organizational mindset and performance.
When you’re at work, do you tend to have an inward or an outward mindset? What about at home? With your boss? Your coworkers? Your spouse? Your siblings?
Everyone operates with one of two mindsets: an outward mindset or an inward mindset. The Mindset Assessment (above) gives us feedback on our individual mindset tendencies on average. However, our mindset can change in different situations.
The Mindset Styles Assessment helps individuals identify which mindset they tend to have in specific situations and relationships: with a boss, with coworkers, with a spouse or partner, with children, and so on. It also evaluates individuals’ predominant inward styles—better than, I deserve, worse than, or need to be seen as—in those situations. Assessment-takers can select the relationships they’d like to evaluate.
When taking this assessment, we strongly recommend that you evaluate multiple relationships. (Note: It takes 2-3 minutes to evaluate a relationship.) This will help reveal the nuanced and multi-faceted ways you approach common situations. It will also identify which relationships might require more attention and in which situations you might be the most susceptible to turning inward.
