Communication Strengths is a scan that gives you an objective view of the strengths and further developable soft skills in a particular area of the people in your organization. Together with academics and HR professionals from different industries, we’re determining which communication skills are crucial in every area. Each participant’s level is objectively scanned using Smart Video Role Play. We have identified nine areas, some of which are still under development. Each area contains a set of related communication skills.
The extent to which an employee masters certain communication skills is determined by online video role plays. Participants react to pre-recorded situations after receiving a description of the situation and exercise. A person appears on the screen of their smartphone, tablet or computer and after this person has finished talking, the participant records their own reaction. The submitted video is then evaluated by a TrainTool assessor. Every Video Role Play is related to a specific skill and every scan contains about fifteen Role Plays. This way, thousands of employees can demonstrate their skills at the same time. Read more about Video Role Plays here!
As an individual participant, you are the only one who sees your scores. The personal report shows your own strengths and points for improvement, thus confirming your ability while triggering further development. Employees can share this on their own initiative with a manager, coach or HR professional, and use it as a starting point for conversations about functioning, development, training and growth.
The scan shows that your strength lies in presenting! If you want to bring this to an even higher level, check out how to further develop your skills here.
By practicing asking follow-up questions, you could make your conversations and agreements with colleagues even clearer.
As a manager, you receive an overall report with the aggregated outcomes of the Communication Strengths Scan. We split the results into subgroups such as department, branch or function profile. These results are presented in straightforward graphs with a clear explanation. This way, you'll see the level of each subgroup and discover opportunities for development. The report also contains a management summary, in which we present our conclusions and provide advice based on the results.
