Personality is like a thumbprint— it is unique to everyone. Performance Dynamics® is a personality assessment process that clearly identifies 17 personality and behavioral characteristics.
Six of these characteristics are NATURE, or biological characteristics (they tend to be part of your DNA.) The remaining 11 are NUTURE characteristics, which are influenced by the people, events and experiences that have shaped you throughout your life.
Each of these characteristics is measured through validated testing instruments. Once we obtain raw scores on each characteristic, we rank them against the general population on a percentile basis. The characteristics comprising Performance Dynamics® are listed below.
(In Your DNA)
(Product of Your Surroundings)
is the pace at which you move; it drives profitability and productivity.
is the psychological drive for responsibility and influence; ego need.
is the degree of one’s creativity, abstract reasoning skill, and strategic thinking ability; how analytical a person is.
involves providing clear focus, structure and direction to all team members.
is a method of influencing the performance of yourself and others.
drives one’s sense of urgency and is the internal motor that drives motivation.
These characteristics are then displayed graphically, resulting in a behavioral/managerial “profile.” This profile allows you to gain a higher degree of self-awareness and gives you an opportunity to manage some characteristics more effectively. Performance Dynamics® provides you with a concrete measure of both strengths and areas for development, linked to a plan for personal and professional growth.
This assessment has not only helped our organization immensely, but it has done great things for the personal development of some very talented people.

Great feedback from personality profiles! Profiles reflect your own primary and secondary characteristics that define leadership. Once brought to a quantitative level, you are visually able to see your areas of opportunity, as well as areas which require work to be more effective at your job.
—Michelle Fontaine, Prepress Manager: Amgraph Packaging, Inc.
I have learned so much about myself and how I can relate better with others, accomplish tasks better and quicker, and significantly decrease stress in my life. My ability to relate to others has improved dramatically across the board. Because of the understanding I have for my own skills and abilities, I am more prepared to handle most anything that I encounter.

This assessment was very eye-opening…and accurate. It’s a hard pill to swallow when someone tells you about the things you really need to improve upon. If it wasn’t for this assessment, I would be on the wrong path, believing I was on the right one.
