The four TRIMA psychometric tests are measurement tools that provide feedback on an individual’s temperament (Social Styles), resources (Competencies), and intention to act (Leadership). When all three questionnaires are completed and combined, the results provide a measure of the cohesiveness of an individual’s preferences, competencies, and leadership styles.
The Social Styles Inventory questionnaire represents the individual’s preferences, attitudes, and predisposition for competencies. It focuses on the question: “Who am I?” and examines one’s predisposition to act.
The Competency Assessment Inventory questionnaire refers to a person’s knowledge of how to act. It focuses on the question: “What can I do?” and identifies the individual’s motives for acting, strategies for success, and level of motivation. The results also shine a light on any blind spots to ensure efforts are focused on development opportunities.
The Leadership Styles questionnaire reflects the desired influence, key values, persuasion strategies, type of visibility sought, and sources of inspiration for collaborators. It focuses on the question: “What impact do I want to have?” and examines one’s intention to act.
The Parallel Competency Classification (PCC) is an analytical tool that requires users to make diametrically opposed choices in order to position themselves on a scale by ranking several competencies. The PCC comprises key competencies linked to issues associated with the position, in order to identify daily challenges or aspects of the role based on meaningful situations or events.
