Try the EPT test and see.
Here we find insights and learn more about our or one’s motivators (if you use it for e.g., teambuilding) and what driving forces you have and describe why you, and also why we act as we do in different situations.
- EPT allows you to characterize your behavior patterns.
- Become more aware of your strengths and weaknesses.
- Identify the environments that are best for you, or most suitable due to your profile and archetype.
- Increase your understanding of other entrepreneurs’ behaviors.
- Reduce the risk of unnecessary conflicts, etc.
Self-awareness increases your and everyone’s ability to work and collaborate with other people. Both inner self-awareness but also external self-awareness. I.e., what you know or are familiar with, that others see in you.
This insight is valuable in all situations, but not least in one’s daily work. By developing your self-awareness, you can objectively see what decision you have taken to get to where you are today.
Through EPT, and its feedback you can learn how to better manage your own states, emotions, and impulses better. And thereby forthcoming decisions to make.
Self-insight is often mentioned as a factor that separates.
- The good leaders or even great, from the less great.
- The capable entrepreneur from the less capable.
- The great managers from the less great.
- Or just the people whose company we prefer and find mutual and rewarding.
By improving self-awareness and finding out motivation factors and opportunities for improvements we can improve ourselves and thereby our companies and organizations. Better understand how to encourage both personnel as well as leaders and managers for e.g., economic development in our organizations or as well as personal growth and joy.
We all recognize that improving self-awareness can be extremely helpful to entrepreneurs who wish to improve their performance and that of their companies. In the same way as for those who are about to start their first enterprise journey. Knowing, or being aware of one’s entrepreneurial profile and its driving forces is many times crucial. If the nature of the business you pursue does not match up with the nature of your entrepreneurial type, you run the risk of losing both your business and money – and unnecessarily.
Developing a successful company requires the development of the organization. For an entrepreneurial-driven company, this process starts with the entrepreneur, or as our research shows, the entrepreneur needs to develop oneself. But gaining the insights necessary for this development is not easy.
We have developed a set of profiles, enabled by our research, (additional research on Stefan Lindstrom researchgate.net) which greatly facilitates the process of identifying and motivating this development. You find your toolbox under How To Use Your Result or get personal feedback and as well a voluntarily professional growth plan by contacting us.
To find your profile and start your journey of improvement, take the test that gives you this insight, and that over 30,000 others have done worldwide.
You also get a personality profile, which you can use in your personal development, as well as in team-development, personnel development, HR, Coaching, Mentoring, etc Self-awareness increases one’s ability.
Recruiting, find out which profile best suits your business and perhaps future needs when recruiting. The preferred focus should be Job focus unless your accredited EPT user has advised otherwise. You can also contact us.
Good luck and enjoy your results.
