Poor situation awareness - he failed to identify and assess risk and take preventative action!

typical + behavioural competence assessment = whole person

If you don’t assess behavioural competence you are only doing a ‘part person’ assessment.

It’s the key reason why new employees, contractors and labour hire workers often fail to meet expectations!

What does a behavioural competence assessment tell us?

It tells us about the underlying characteristics of a person that directly impact how they function and perform.

They are the characteristics and tendencies that people typically don’t show at interview and which most candidate assessment methods don’t consider and can’t measure.

They are the key factors that determine how well a person can respond to the demands of the role and whether or not the candidate is more likely or not to:

How a behavioural competence assessment is different to what you are probably doing now!

What the typical assessment approach doesn’t tell us about is the

candidate’s behavioural competence to do the job.

Whether the candidate has the capability to assess a situation and

take the appropriate action for the circumstances at the moment of need and

how they are most likely to interact with others.
