When Should Personality Tests be Used in the Workplace? (Hint: it’s NOT in your hiring process)

The Joy to Lead Podcast

May 10 2022 • 32 mins

If you’re like me, you love a good personality test. Give me the enneagram, the DiSC, the Kolbe, StrengthsFinders, Myers Briggs any day, and that list can go on and on. But, I’ve spoken before about the detriments weaving in a personality test too early in your hiring process can have.

So today on the podcast we are deep diving into all things personality tests, specifically:

  • the trouble they can wreck in your hiring process,
  • when they should and shouldn’t be used,
  • how you can best utilize them to benefit your team,
  • and a stronger way to explore personality in the hiring and onboarding processes.
