Hartman Values Profile (HVP) Assessment

Will they exaggerate the positive or overlook the negative? Do they have empathy for others? Are they escaping their old job? TeamTrait employment tests use an updated version of the Hartman Values Profile (HVP) to reveal what team members value at the core level and how they are likely to make decisions on the job. TeamTrait reveals:

  • Role Awareness: How well do they understand and appreciate their place and function at work? This gives them a sense of confidence and satisfaction in their role, as well as a sense of contribution. These are critical in employee retention.
  • Self-​Direction: Are they looking for a future in your company or looking for a way out? A person's self-​direction indicates whether they have a clear vision of their future. It also measures their confidence in their future.
  • Empathy: How well can they relate to and work with other people? How much do they care about other people's needs? A person's empathetic capability is vital for success in leadership, sales and other customer-​facing positions.
  • Practical Thinking: Do they see what to do when prioritizing activities and projects, and when categorizing things? Do they understand what needs to be done and use practical ways of carrying out necessary tasks? A person's practical thinking capability indicates their capacity for practical judgment toward doing things and making progress.
  • Structured Thinking: Do they understand the rules of the game, such as important protocols, procedures, authorities, forecasts, budgets, fixed rules and standards? Are they self-​regulated? Or do they tend to undermine the rules or find a work-​around? A person's structured thinking represents their ability for seeing and appreciating systems, order, and conventional thinking and planning.
  • Self-​Esteem: Are they cognizant of their wants, needs, and desires?  Do they feel worthy of what they have? A person's self-​esteem indicates their capacity for seeing their value, for seeing and appreciating their abilities and limitations without preconceived stipulations and expectations. It also indicates their mind is focused (reasoning) on their strengths or their shortcomings. Self-​esteem impacts the decisions they make about self-​care and their own best interest.



Motivators Assessment

What motivates them to take action? Money? Independence? Power? Helping others? TeamTrait uses a unique assessment from behavioral mastermind Steven Sisler to show you which of the 7 primary motivators drive each candidate. TeamTrait behavioral assessment for employment indicates one's desire for:

  1. Originality – Grounded vs. Unconventional
  2. Efficiency – Competitive vs. Complacent
  3. Individuality – Distinctive vs. Blending In
  4. Power – Controlling vs. Submissive
  5. Sacrifice – Conditional vs. Unconditional
  6. Compliance – Structured vs. Unstructured
  7. Curiosity – Intellectual vs. Intuitive

Patterns from these primary motivators reveal what's really important in retaining your best team members. Are you fulfilling their tops internal desires? These can include their desire/​need to:

  • Win or Make Money
  • Work Autonomously
  • Learn New Things
  • Be Self Reliant
  • Have Authority or Control
  • Be Creative
  • Serve or Support Others



Behavioral Assessment

What energizes your candidate? Making things happen? Attracting people to them? TeamTrait uses DISC to measures behavioral tendencies like these for each candidate. It also reveals how they act when under the stress of a deadline or demanding customer.

DISC is a universally applicable measurement of needs-​motivated, observable behavior and emotion. It has been proven effective as a measurement of Natural Behavior. DISC is also superior to personality tests for measuring likely behavior.

DISC is NOT a measure of intelligence, skills, education or experience, or an indicator of values. DISC groups levels of behavior into four general categories:

  • D — Dominance or Directive Approach: Measures how people address problems and challenges
  • I — Influence or Interactive Approach: Measures how people handle situations involving people and contacts
  • S — Steadiness or Supportive Approach: Measures how people demonstrate pace and consistency
  • C — Compliance or Corrective Approach: Measures how people react to procedure and constraints

There are no good or bad behavior styles. Each style of behavior has strengths and areas for improvement.

Natural Behavior

Natural behavior describes a person's state of being without any interference from others. It is what our brain has generally learned to do over the years to best survive and succeed under a variety of circumstances and differing environments. It is called "natural" because it is an automatic approach to life unless specific adjustments need to be made to succeed in a certain environment.

Natural behavior can also be thought of as a person's unconscious "character" base. Although it is important to note that psychometric assessments are not reliable in measuring integrity.

Natural Behavior reflects people's natural, consistent, and available emotional energy for interacting with the world.

Intentional Behavior

Intentional behavior is the emotional and behavioral adjustments your brain deliberately makes in order to successfully live within a shared existence. In the work setting, it is how a person changes their behavior in order to be appropriate and successful.

Our choice of behavior reflects our present solution for reconciling the two forces that push toward a separate existence and pull toward a shared existence within the world. This intended selection of behaviors takes place at the conscious level. Intentions can be altered, which is why change begins at the conscious level.

Natural behavior describes how people act when they are alone or looking out for themselves. Intentional behavior is how they act around other people, in a social setting or when looking out for others.
