American Red Cross Uses CPI 260 Tool to Identify Leadership Potential

Jun 24, 2016 in CPP Connect | 0 comments

Every two seconds someone in the U.S. needs blood, which means approximately 36,000 units of red blood cells are needed every day in the U.S. People need blood for a variety of reasons, from chemotherapy treatment to natural disasters, and many often need more than a few pints. A single car accident victim can require as many of 100 pints of blood. In addition, blood can’t be manufactured – it can only come from generous donors. And since 1940, under the leadership of Dr. Charles Drew, the American Red Cross has taken on that need with astounding success. In fact, nearly 40% of the nation’s blood supply is provided through the Red Cross to 2,600 hospitals and transfusion centers nationwide. It’s organizations that help serve our country such as the Red Cross that make us at CPP proud to be able to provide assessments and training that help their organizations, and their employees, be more successful. Specifically, the American Red Cross used the CPI 260 instrument in order to address the challenge of objectively identifying leadership potential within their organization Read more below about how the Red Cross used the CPI 260 assessment and why they’d recommend it:           Learn more about the American Red Cross, blood types, and find a donation event near you by visiting www.redcross.org Learn more about the CPI 260 assessment, view case studies and videos and download sample reports at www.cpp.com/cpi To get more in-depth information about the CPI 260 assessment and how it’s used in leadership initiatives, download the CPI Leadership Playbook here.             TechValidate is a third party research firm that collects information from verified CPP customers, checks the accuracy and authenticity of the data and publishes statistics, deployment facts, and the unfiltered voice of the end-user, without any editorial/analyst commentary, to a research portal open to the public. Click here to access CPP’s customer research...

Summer Vacation Decision Making—Extraverted Feeling

Jun 23, 2016 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

We explored the Perceiving patterns of mental activity (Se, Si, Ne, Ni) and half of the Judging patterns (Te, Ti) in our search for that perfect summer vacation. It is now time to finish it off with Feeling, starting with extraverted Feeling (Fe), which is about making decisions taking into account how our decisions will affect others. As you decide where you might go for vacation this summer, consider the following Fe questions: What will I do to include the ideas of others who may join us? Which kind of vacation will bring us together the most? What vacation options might allow me to also contribute to the lives of others? What summer vacation choices will make everyone happy? “Dominant extraverted Feeling types are natural facilitators of people—sympathetic, expressive, and compassionate. Their values are clear, and they express them in their everyday interactions.” —Introduction to Type® Dynamics and Development. The MBTI® types that typically rely the most on extraverted Feeling (Fe) during decision making are ESFJ and ENFJ. The types that might forget to use Fe during decision making are INTP and ISTP.

Summer Vacation Decision Making—Introverted Thinking

Jun 21, 2016 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

Continuing with the Judging patterns of mental activity in our quest for the perfect summer vacation, we come next to introverted Thinking (Ti), which is about creating internal order and logic to find the “correct” answer to problems. As you continue to think about where you might go for vacation this summer, consider the following Ti questions: What’s right and wrong with the choices I’m considering? (Allow yourself to be critical.) What’s wrong with the options others are bringing up? (Be careful not to be too critical.) What data can I explore that can help justify my vacation decision? When is the best time to be tough and just help everyone decide already? “Dominant introverted Thinking types are natural logicians—detached, quick to order and assimilate new information, reflective. Their judgment is directed to creating internal order in their ideas and principles.” —Introduction to Type® Dynamics and Development. The MBTI® types that typically rely the most on introverted Thinking (Ti) during decision making are ISTP and INTP. The types that might forget to use Ti during decision making are ENFJ and ESFJ.

Summer Vacation Decision Making—Extraverted Thinking

Jun 16, 2016 in MBTI Talk | 0 comments

I have spent time in the past several posts highlighting the importance of different ways to take in information (Perceiving). Once that has happened, it’s time to evaluate that information. If this doesn’t happen, then usually nothing gets done, no vacation plans will be made. Evaluating information is about using Thinking and Feeling. Extraverted Thinking (Te) helps us evaluate that information in a logical and objective way. As you think about where you might go for vacation this summer, consider Te questions like: What will the vacation cost, and how will I pay for it? Will I get the best “bang for my buck” on the vacation options I’m considering? What excursions will I organize to reasonably meet everyone’s needs equally? What contingency plans will I need to make to ensure everything goes off like I’ve planned? “Dominant extraverted Thinking types are natural leaders—quick, assertive, and decisive. Their judgments are clear and logical; they seldom have second thoughts.” —Introduction to Type® Dynamics and Development. The MBTI® types that typically rely the most on extraverted Thinking (Te) during decision making are ESTJ and ENTJ. The types that might forget to use Te during decision making are INFP and ISFP.
