Elite Business Profile

Based on scientific research with elite athletes, the Elite Business Profile helps organizations quickly identify those individuals who possess five critical behavioral characteristics that have been linked to the mental toughness, drive, preparation, teamwork and competitiveness necessary for athletic success.

Measures the degree to which the individual is likely to be candid and accurate in his/her responses and is therefore not trying to outsmart the test in an effort to present him/herself in a more favorable light. The results of this scale should be used as a "red flag" to make you aware that some candidates may be trying to "fake" the test. For example, if a candidate scores High on the behavioral scales in this assessment and he/she scores Low on Candidness, there is the chance that he was able to elevate his/her scores on the assessment by trying to make him/herself look good. High behavioral scale scores that are accompanied by Low Candidness scores warrants some additional follow-up during the interview or reference checks to confirm the candidate's behavioral scale scores are in line with his/her previous work history.
