INSIGHT Business Professional Metrics


Target highly skilled individuals with the professional mindset and problem solving skills needed to achieve your company's goals.

The metrics reported on INSIGHT Business Professional have been calibrated to measure the professional mindset and problem solving skills.  Based on responses, we identify how decisions were made and the application of reasoning skills and mindset. Strengths and weaknesses are clearly reported for each following key aspects:

Business Professional Mindset

  • Judicious:  To display thoughtfulness in decision-making and an awareness that there is often more than one reasonable option and that poor decisions should be dispassionately revisited.
  • Committed: To be loyally oriented to the job, company goals and mission.
  • Honorable:  To conduct oneself with personal integrity, honesty and truthfulness.
  • Foresightful: To strive to anticipate potential difficulties and to foresee consequences of decisions.
  • Focused: To persistently focus on working through problems in an organized, systematic and orderly way.
  • Adaptable: To be resilient, with an appetite for innovation and system changes.
  • Resourceful: To be driven to find the means necessary to fulfill responsibilities; self-reliant.
  • Tolerant:  To respect diversity in the workplace, including showing due respect for different perspectives, opinions, and suggestions.
  • Motivational: To communicate enthusiasm for the work at hand and inspires others to give their best.
  • Professional:  To take an appropriate approach to social interactions at work; maintains focus on work responsibilities


Business Reasoning Skills

  • Problem Analysis: The ability to analyze problem situations and identify the significance of the critical data elements. A strongly skilled problem solver uses analysis and interpretation skills to determine the issues that must be addressed and to understand the complexities of the problem.
  • Evaluating Alternatives: The ability to evaluate options accurately and establish priorities.  A successful business professional can differentiate the quality of different possible choices and explain the reasons for their decisions.  
  • Precise Contexts: The deductive reasoning skills necessary to anticipate outcomes and see logical consequences. Effective business professionals need to be able to see applications and implications of executive directives, company policies and regulations which shape and constrain their problem solving.
  • Ambiguous contexts: Problem solving in contexts of risk, ambiguity and uncertainty. Strength in inductive and inferential reasoning lead problem solvers to determine the solution that has the strongest likelihood of success, given information at hand. 
  • Quantitative Contexts: The ability to reason well in contexts involving numerical data. Business problem solvers must demonstrate the ability to interpret and evaluate vital information presented in a variety of numerical formats in order to reach an optimal solution.
  • Overall Reasoning Skills: The integration of thinking and reasoning skills needed to make operational decisions and to address problem situations at the business professional organizational levels.

INSIGHT Reports and Analysis


What do you get? Results you can use.

All INSIGHT solutions feature customized professional assessments and easy to read, easy to use comprehensive metrics on the strengths and weaknesses of key aspects of decision making.

Clear concise reports provide the reliable analysis you need for hiring, promoting, training and future planning. Printable INDIVIDUAL REPORTS document strengths and areas for growth for 15 key thinking skill and mindset metrics.

For each individual you will know:

  • Overall score: You will know if the total numeric score indicates Superior, Strong, Moderate skills at this level-- or if the skills were Not Manifested.
  • Did the individual candidate demonstrate core reasoning skills in the required decision making domains?  Reports explain each of the key aspects of decision making and how it impacts success. At a glance, you’ll see a qualitative rating (Superior, Strong skills, Moderate, or Not Manifested) for each skill or attribute. 
  • Numerical scores and recommended performance assessments reported reflect the extent to which the person being assessed manifested a given skill or attribute.  The recommended performance assessments (qualitative scores) reported are always relative to the level of the INSIGHT assessment instrument: Executive, Professional, Staff or Support .

Group Report Options:

  • Group reports can be requested at any time as an additional service.  Group reports display aggregated statistics and bar-charts on each INSIGHT metric. These reports have many uses including guiding employee development initiatives over time, comparing different groups engaged in similar tasks at a given organizational level or aiding in the establishment of threshold skill levels to qualify candidates for interviews.
