What is the FIT?

What Problems Will The FIT Solve?

The F I T has assisted numerous individuals, teams and organisations when they have experienced the following challenging scenario’s:

  • Low trust teams and misaligned departmental functions meaning that things take forever to get done;
  • Team member misalignment on top priorities;
  • Misunderstandings between decision makers, leaders and employees, employees with each other, and departmental functions with each other; either over-controlling or under-steering relational risks proactively before things go wrong, miscommunication;
  • Under-utilising individual strengths that usually produce demotivation and low trust;
  • Gaps in relational focus showing up as re-work, missing important deadlines, overlapping work and low productivity;
  • Out of balance teams over-focusing for example either on big picture ideas, concepts, on what can be, wanting all people to work with freedom, or on the other hand, over focusing on small details, on what is, being over logical, factual and rational, treating people as things that are paid to perform;
  • Misaligned individuals on work specs,
  • Misaligned managers to their people – takes too long to get the best contribution from their people and it shows up as low productivity, re-work, frustration and disengagement – not sharing relevant and pertinent information in time with the right people;
  • Misaligned people to the required organisational culture requirements;
  • Misaligned new appointees to their managers and fellow team members – showing up as new members making many mistakes, re-work, relational pressure and breakdowns, managers doing their people’s work for them, loosing focus and making mistakes on what they are supposed to contribute at their levels;
  • Appointing the wrong people.
  • Misaligned families.
  • The impact of learner’s choices when choosing study- subjects and directions on their current F I T™ focus, which could lead to unnecessary difficulties and misalignment within the learner and his/her supporting relationships.
  • The F I T not only provides a quick scan on individual focus as it relates to recruitment & placement, but furthermore creates the opportunity to interact eye to eye, at an individual level or in a team/family context, on the impact of focus and to uncover hidden potential and required management style as it relates to the individual, team, family, marriage, work function or organisational requirements.

Understand yourself, team, organisation, family members, partner and/or spouse better to bring about personal growth, improved relationships and peace of mind. Unlock your true potential for growth, collaboration, and relational trust.

  • A single 20-minute PICTURE questionnaire provides the data required for multiple interventions, reducing survey fatigue, helping people see the links between diverse organisations development activities, and creating a shared language and sense of integration across the business, or
  • Gather the information data through a 2 Hour fun-filled Team Building experience for teams that need to improve collaboration, communication, trust levels and focused execution. This approach is found to be highly valuable for team building scenario’s.
  • The FIT is more than a personality model, as it also offers a framework for reflecting on team dynamics and balance as well as providing key success factors towards designing a process that can be applied to guide an intentional change journey.
  • Maximise the return on investment (ROI) and depth of your development activities with a system tool that brings emotional intelligence and deep self-awareness to all applications.
  • Accelerate and support deep transformations in culture, learning and development, and fulfilment by connecting employees to high levels of self-awareness. Insight into individual motivators, personal skills and risk ratio orientation allows for deeper, faster change, customised change journeys and effective, sustainable transformation.
  • It provides a framework to discover the ‘why’ behind displayed behaviours or resistance, allowing for breakthrough solutions, what intrinsically motivates different people, what engages them and the risks of disengagement or burnout.
  • Empower your managers, leaders, change agents, and coaches with skills and suggestions of effective placement and development activities and strategies for each individual, team or organisation.
