Pario Professional is a 20 minute, competency-related questionnaire that explores factors influencing how people deal with Problems, People and Tasks. The focus is on motivation and behaviour at work (not personality) and the profile reveals how people respond to various work demands.
The Profile highlights individual preferences and people’s adjustment to their role. Key elements covered by the report include Organisational Awareness, Developing Opportunities and Striving for Success. The impact of Personal Values on Professional Objectivity is also explored. The profile offers excellent insight in to how people are currently directing their energy at work. Online training materials are available for Registered Pario Clients.
… the most useful tool I have come across. I use it mainly for counselling where it allows me to explore a wide range of issues across the three major dimensions of Problems, People and Tasks. Each dimension includes eight competencies and the interrelationships between the 24 competencies can be very revealing allowing me to surface problem areas and develop action plans to resolve them.

As a user of this excellent metric in my own practice as a Coaching Psychologist, I can vouch for its efficacy and practical application in exploring sometimes difficult conversations in the coaching process. The manner in which the metric distinguishes between people, problems and tasks allows for a full exploration of the coachee’s management and leadership style and focus and also deeper consideration of potential hidden or blind spots in those areas. (Especially the people element)

Having specialised in psychometrics for nearly 15 years, I can say that PARIO is the most impressive profiler I have used to understand the needs and priorities of managers. Well validated and focused on the behaviours that differentiate high performers, PARIO is a very powerful tool for a Business Coach.
