We are in the hypergrowth stage and are using Forté to ensure that all team members are moving in the same direction. It is so important at the leadership level that a good example is set and this can be done through motivation and understanding. Each person’s communication, strength, and motivation are different and using this system allows us to tap into, understand and use this knowledge to our advantage. The reporting system is not a dictator, but a validator, and the accuracy of the data is pretty highly accurate. I know me, but others don’t, which is why it is so powerful. What Forté has allowed us to do is work together, be transparent and communicate effectively. It brings about honest conversations that lead everyone to a certain level of accountability and ownership which is imperative for real growth in a company. It’s very easy to predetermine how you think a person should communicate, react and adapt but what Forté has taught me is that your initial frame of thought does not match what or how that person needs you to communicate with them for efficiency. Being able to view each of my employees through the lens of their own unique data profile allows me to have much more fruitful conversations, understanding when to push and when to coach. The model exceeded my expectations. It is so substantial and validated, whereas other tools are built on generalizing, Forté breaks down the data much more granular to an individual level. Using it proficiently and frequently it allows me to ensure that there are not a lot of variances, keeping the communication, stamina, and motivation of my team where it needs to be.
