Do you have that “always right” never in doubt employee in your organization?

We’ve all seen them, some of us have worked with them and most of us can certainly identify a few of them. Those personality types that muck up the atmosphere at work and typically put a wrench in productivity because of their dominance. The very strong type personality that sometimes gets categorized as a bully because of their strong convictions. This person’s wealth of “certainty” may not have a positive effect on your company.

The Harrison Assessment can help you identify and positively develop these personality types.

If the individual scores high in Certainy (8-10) on the Harrison Assessment it indicates a very strong-minded person who gets along well with people with the same beliefs, but often has difficulty with people with different beliefs.

Someone who is always right may end up in a conflict when faced with someone of different beliefs/personality. Excessive need to be right certainty can be a barrier between people. This may indicate the need for emotional intelligence training.

A move towards self- improvement may be a catalyst for advancement. Improving warmth, collaboration and flexibility will help balance this.

You may have invested a significant amount of time, energy and training dollars into this person. If you choose to manage them, give them a work fit personality assessment such as the Harrison. This may help guide you to a developmental plan that may harness some of the certainty and motivate them to work with people that have differing views and beliefs.
