The right manager or supervisor will be a powerful role model whose leadership skills will inspire the entire team. He or she will keep turnover to a minimum and possess the skill to motivate the staff to its highest level of production.
PsyMetrics' Situational Judgment Test (SJT) - Manager consists of attitudinal, behavioral and situational questions aimed at assessing the candidate's ability to problem solve and use appropriate judgment while performing the manager function. The test provides an opportunity to objectively assess the management skills of job candidates. It was developed to identify those applicants best able to handle the daily challenges encountered by most managers and supervisors. The four areas assessed by this SJT are:
The degree to which the individual communicates effectively with staff and coworkers. The degree to which he/she actively listens and expresses ideas and concepts clearly and as necessary.
The degree to which the individual makes decisions based on facts and not on impulse. The degree to which he/she is fair and just in his/her decision-making process.
The degree to which the individual delegates work projects as appropriate. The degree to which he/she lets staff perform independently without unnecessary supervision.
The degree to which the individual promotes positive working relationships with his/her staff. The degree to which he/she handles employee issues responsibly and effectively while gaining employee trust and respect.
The Situational Judgment Test - Manager predicts:
This test is ideal for organizations wanting to identify individuals who utilize appropriate judgment and problem-solving skills as they perform their day-to-day managerial duties. Excellent for both managerial and supervisory candidates.
