After the questionnaire is filled in and saved personal report is generated and then sent to the assessed person either in printed version or through e-mail.

Debriefing focuses mainly on three areas: personal and professional development as well as relationships. Each report includes Action Plan.
4.How to check if report provides true information?
Personalized report presents information concerning a person based on answers which were given during filling in a questionnaire. To verify it, we recommend consulting results with friends or co-workers - people who know assessed person - and comparing results of the report with their impressions.

Getting to know a person is usually a long process requiring confronting employee with various situations and challenges. Applying assessment and analysis describing one’s profile, indicating strong and weak aspects, motivators and the most efficient ways of communication, allows to save time and cost of hiring a wrong person to the specific position. In case of recruiting a new employee potential employer can analyze candidate’s predispositions carefully, this way he/she will be sure that this person will fit in the offered position. Similarly, thanks to carefully reading a report, a candidate for particular post can avoid disappointment resulting from doing job not in line with his/her profile and find a post which would allow him/her to develop his potential to the full.
