Success and Effectiveness


What makes someone successful or even effective? They get judged by the results they achieve for their employer and for themselves. It is not about personality.


As we face political and economic uncertainties, organisations will need to make very significant changes to survive. Employees will need to be even more Adaptable than ever to cope with change and the unpredictable.


All businesses need effective people - those who achieve results, initiate and manage change, engage with colleagues and remain stress free.


Now find out how to convert the average to good, the good to outstanding.


In the real world, people need to do appropriate things to achieve what the organisation needs.

PEP - The Key to Successful People


Individuals need to be able to get on with people at work, at home and in their social life. Sometimes their behaviour can be misinterpreted by others.


Successful people know how to adapt their behaviour in order to minimise these misinterpretations. They also have the fundamental reasoning and logic skills to solve problems and make decisions, not just at work but at home and in their social life.


PEP measures those fundamental adaptability elements that are responsible for results, effectiveness; success and productivity; de-railers that discount or destroy effectiveness and analyses how they impact what the individual achieves.


PEP's valid measures of individual behavioural and communications style its impact on interpersonal relations and its compatibility with the Organisation's Strategic Culture, create fit and alignment with the organisation.

Adaptability is responsible for:

  • Managing Change Effectively
  • Demonstrating Leadership Potential
  • Managing Stress & Well Being
  • Working with Others (teams, customers, networking)
  • Achieving Goals and Results
  • Personal Effectiveness & Productivity

Most individuals have never had the mirror put in front of them. Most are unaware of the impact of their behaviour on others and on tasks, or their organisational fit.



Adaptability correlates highly with on job effectiveness, success and results achievement.


Adaptability is especially important in global organisations where staff are transferred internationally as they need to make major adaptations to new circumstances, quickly.


 “De-railers” identify the personal characteristics of those individuals who are unlikely to fit in to your organisation, or who do things that discount all the good things they do.


Our diagnostic analysis shows how current levels of Adaptability impact the results achieved by your staff members. This provides high levels of precision in development programmes and a clear focus on the future of the business.


We can undertake all the consulting and diagnostic work with you. Alternatively we can train your own facilitators or preferred consulting providers in our methodology for a cost effective solution.
