A survey conducted in 2013 of 75 members of the Stanford Graduate School of Business Advisory Council rated SELF-AWARENESS as the most important competency for leaders to develop.

In this session, you will experience the power of behavioral assessments in raising leader self-awareness and effectiveness. Prior to the event, you will have the opportunity to take the Predictive Index* behavioral assessment online. Then when we gather, Strategic Planning Facilitator and Predictive Index Senior Consultant, Jim Gribble will share insights about your results. You’ll gain valuable understanding of the motivational drives and needs that influence your day-to-day workplace behavior. You will be provided with a Self-Awareness Action Chart which will identify your personal leadership strengths with associated risks and your leadership weaknesses with associated suggestions for self-development. Finally, you will use what you have learned about your leadership style to create a Personal Self-Awareness Action Plan.

*The Predictive Index or PI® is a scientifically validated behavioral assessment that predicts workplace behavior. Founded in science and developed for business use in 1955, the PI offers a clear understanding of the behavioral needs and drives of the talent in your organization.

Predictive Index is applicable throughout the entire employee life cycle of selection, development, and retention. PI is valid, reliable, free of bias, and fully complies with employer’s EEOC obligations.

With 2.5 million completed assessments per year, PI is currently in use by over 8,500 organizations in 145 countries, including 92 of the Fortune 500.

Jim Gribble was first trained in the use of Predictive Index 30 years ago and has used its insights to great success during his career on staff where he ran profit centers as large as $85 million for a number of leading direct-to-consumer marketing companies. Jim founded LinkProfits in 1999 -- one of the first companies to offer outsourced e-commerce affiliate program management services. Today, Jim is dedicated to helping all types of organizations realize the tremendous value of effective strategic planning as a facilitator and educating others in the use of his “secret to success” -- Predictive Index. 

Light snacks will be provided.

Although the address is Gallows Rd., the entrance to the building is actually on Boone Blvd. If you've just turned off of Rt. 7 onto Gallows Rd, with Olive Garden on your right, take the next left onto Boone Blvd., then turn right into the first driveway. 1921 is the building straight in front of you. Parking is over to the right, and it is free.

The building locks sometime after 6 p.m., so if you are not able to get in, call or text Claudia at 703.217.3517.

Closest Metro Stop: Tysons Corner (Silver Line): You can walk through Tysons Corner mall to Route 7, cross the street, and walk to 1921 Gallows Rd (which is actually on Boone Blvd). Probably about a half-mile walk.

In addition, there’s a shuttle bus that leaves the McLean Metro at approximately 5:30 and 6:00 p.m. and arrives at Tysons International Plaza (1921 Gallows Rd) about 20 minutes later. We can coordinate rides back to the Metro after the meeting.
