Position Insights Profile FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Q. What is the difference between Position Insights Profiles and Leading From Your Strengths Profiles?
A. The Position Insights Profile is a 12-page report that provides a clear and accurate picture of the behavioral demands of a specific job or position. It is completed by a recruiting team answering questions about the strengths demands for a job – not an individual. In contrast, the Leading From Your Strengths Profile is a personalized, 20-page report that captures the strengths of an individual after that person fills out a 10-minute questionnaire. It is a tool that can be used to compare candidates’ strengths to the strengths needed in the job in order to select the best person for that person.
Q. How can the Successful Staffing Guide benefit my team?
A. The Successful Staffing Guide is a free resource which thoroughly explains how to create a position profile for a specific job. The Guide outlines how to go through the recruiting process step-by-step.
Q. Who provides input in creating a Position Insights Profile for a particular position?
A. You can select who contributes to the process. We recommend you identify a small group of 3-5 invested stakeholders, including the hiring manager, position supervisor, current person in the position who is exceeding expectations, and 1-2 people who the position will serve.
Q. Must I use both the Position Insights Profile (to create benchmark strengths) and the Leading From Your Strengths Profile (for potential candidates) in order to successfully fill a position?
A. No. While we urge you to use both tools for the best possible results, the two profiles can be used independently in the candidate selection process.
