Personality and Communications Styles Assessments and Development Reports

​Jessica uses the world renowned personality tool ‘Facet5’ to support her clients realise their potential through increased self awareness and awareness of others. After completing an online assessment, the data collected can be used in many different ways to support recruitment, development and communication. The data can also be presented in various different reports that support different development opportunities from communication style, preferences, conversation styles and career motivators. Some reports require a debrief either as a group or individual and some reports are stand alone and can be self assessed.

Facet5 is one of the most modern and advanced measures of personality available today. Used by organisations and consultancies worldwide, Facet5 harnesses the power of personality, supporting individuals, teams and businesses to realise their full potential. Facet5 provides a simple model and a common language to explain how people differ in their behaviour, motivation and attitudes, and more importantly, what can be achieved.

Facet5 was developed in response to client demand for speedy, practical information to assist with decision making at each stage of an employees’ journey through an organisation. Available in over 30 different languages, Facet5 is jargon-free, and web-based for easy access all over the world. A wide range of country and industry norm groups makes meaningful comparisons simple. Jessica Symes Toomey uses Facet5 when working with organisations to design and implement solutions that solve not only business problems but harness opportunities and realise potential.

Facet5 is easily and effectively applied across the entire employee lifecycle. From selection through to separation and exit, Facet5 engages the individual, the leader and organisation with a range of comprehensive insights. Whether building a team, integrating a new hire or looking at organisational culture, Jessica uses Facet5 to work with individuals, teams and organisations to realise their full potential.

The five factor model of personality (or ‘Big 5’) is now widely accepted as the best way of describing the fundamental building blocks of personality. The ‘Big 5’ model consistently emerges from psychological research as the irreducible minimum needed to give a comprehensive description of personality and behaviour. Facet5 measures these five factors precisely and quickly to give the most accurate and easily applied portrait of individual differences in behaviour.
