Naturally Observable Characteristics
Team-Building and Communicating with Different Styles
By learning how to adapt to and connect with others, you will create stronger and more effective relationships. When you understand someone, you can more easily flex your characteristics to match their characteristics. In formal “trait theory,” the belief is that people are best understood in terms of a small number of stable personality characteristics. These characteristics have been written about over the years, and we have endeavored to embrace the assessment research that has come before us. The factor analysis model that we use to support the Naturally Observable Characteristics (NOC) tool adds new distinctions and value to these characteristics. Our system is consistent with many of the instruments currently in the marketplace with which people are already familiar.
