More and more companies are using psychological testing for their middle and senior managers. It helps employers to assess the qualities of the people they appoint, in terms of leadership skills, motivation, teamplaying, interpersonal skills, aptitude, emotional development and career potential. They can then be allocated work, or placed in teams, which are specifically geared to temperament and capabilities. The book explains what tests are for, how reliable they are, and how they should be administered in order to be most useful for both employer and employee. It is designed to be an invaluable guide for the employer who wants help in selection, recruitment and career planning, but doesn't know whether to use a test, or which would be the most appropriate. It will also be of enormous help to the employee who finds him or herself faced with a test; it takes away the fear and shows how remarkable insights can be made in the area of self knowledge. The book looks at some of the most commonly available tests on the market today. It examines what each test aims to do, it's usefulness to the company and the individual, how it is presented, scored and followed up, and how to combine it with other tasks. Sample questions are given, and there is also information on what the test is likely to do, and the time and costs involved. This is a practical and informative reference book for senior managers and personnel departments, and a reassuring and helpful guide for the many people who are now coming across psychological testing as they climb the career ladder.
