Using the results of the assessments I gained insight about my employee’s strengths and weaknesses. The results showed me how my employee’s characteristics affect the organization. Using this information I was able to assess their future within the company and create a management plan that will enhance their abilities.
The first assessment they participated in was, How Satisfied Am I With My Job? Having a higher score indicates a better chance of having overall life satisfaction. A high score would be in the range of 74-76. Marylou Orozco scored a 72; Christina Gomez scored a 60; Colby Martin scored a 66. The second test that was given was Am I Engaged? This gives an idea of how much one is willing to persist in a task. A high score indicates someone who is immersed and absorbed in what they do. The scores range from 9-45. Marylou scored 27; Christina scored 34; Colby scored 19. The third test was How are You Feeling Right Now? The scores can range from 10 to 50. A higher score indicates a positive emotional state.

Finally the Am I Deliberate Decision Maker?assessment was given. Marylou scored a 25; Christina scored a 17; Colby scored 28. Having a score below 14 defines a rash decision maker.
