Introduction to P3
P3 is an on-line talent management system that uses an assessment instrument to help companies hire and manage people who will perform well in their job. It offers a detailed profiling on a person’s natural tendencies, communication styles, emotional intelligence, motivational needs, decision-making abilities, energy levels and more.

A web based application, P3 has a straightforward and intuitive menu driven system. It can be used in conjunction with an organization’s standard HR operating processes or it can be fully integrated into a company’s existing Talent Management platform using our web services model. In addition to supporting employee selection, P3 helps with employee on-boarding, team dynamics, employee performance and succession planning and employee development.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) questionnaire is the most widely used personality questionnaire worldwide.
More than 3.5m questionnaires are completed worldwide every year and there are over 13,000 qualified users in Europe. It is based on over 50 years research and development and is available in 19 languages.
The MBTI questionnaire describes an individual’s personality preferences. It represents these in four dimensions:
|Prefers to draw energy from the outer world of activity, people and things||Prefers to draw energy from the inner world of reflections, feelings and ideas|
|Prefers to focus on information gained from the five senses and on practical applications||Prefers to focus on patterns, connections and possible meanings|
|Prefers to base decisions on logic and objective analysis of cause and effect||Prefers to base decisions on a valuing process, considering what is important to people|
|Likes a planned, organised approach to life, and prefers to have things decided||Likes a flexible, spontaneous approach and prefers to keep options open|
The various combinations of these preferences result in 16 personality ‘types’. Each is associated with a unique set of behavioral characteristics and values.
These provide a useful starting point for individual feedback, self-exploration and group discussion.
The key uses of MBTI are;
- Individual development– understanding your own preferred working style and how to develop it more effectively.
- Management and leadership development– helping managers and leaders to appreciate the impact of their personal styles on others. Identify their strengths and any areas that they may need to develop in order to become more effective.
- Teambuilding and development– increase awareness of the teams working style and consequently improve team communication, enhance problem solving, encourage appreciation of diversity and resolve conflict.
- Organizational change– understand why people react differently to change and how to support them through change.
- Improving communication– help people to understand how to communicate effectively with different people and develop influencing and persuading skills.
A key element of the MBTI is that it is not a trait measurement tool- that is to say it does not measure amounts of good or bad, right practice and incorrect practice- it merely sets out how an individual is naturally inclined, their consequent strengths and areas of development and from this engenders a greater understanding of other types.
