What Causes Employees to Derail? New Video Series From Hogan Assessment Systems Reveals the Impact of Personality Behaviors

Videos Show How Personality Can Quickly Turn Into Performance Risks (March 19, 2012)

TULSA, OK -- (Marketwire) -- 03/19/12 -- Every organization has its share of characters, from the leisurely procrastinator to the nit-picking perfectionist. But in the climb to the top of the ladder, seemingly harmless characteristics can seriously impact performance.

To shed light on these often hidden derailers, Hogan Assessment Systems launched -- home to a video series that illustrates the 11 personality-based performance risks identified by the Hogan Development Survey (HDS).

In each of the mockumentary-style episodes, employees make excuses for their derailing tendencies, oblivious to their impact on their performance and colleagues. The employee displaying high bold qualities may be the office go-getter, but his entitled attitude alienates co-workers. Although the diligent employee thinks her organization skills benefit the company, she fails to see how her perfectionist tendencies cause colleagues to view her as a micromanager.

"The goal of the 'How do YOU derail?' video campaign was to convey workplace personalities to which we can all relate -- an overly excitable co-worker who lashes out at colleagues or a leisurely employee who never seems to meet a deadline. These exaggerated concepts demonstrate a very serious problem in today's workplace," said Hogan Director of Marketing Natalie Tracy. "Under normal circumstances, the behaviors associated with the HDS scales are annoying at worst, and can even be strengths in certain situations. However, when people are tired, under increased pressure, bored, or otherwise distracted, these tendencies can become crippling career derailers. Using the HDS, we can identify these performance risks and mitigate them through self-awareness and coaching before they become an issue."
