|The B-Scan instrument is designed to identify developmental needs in management and supervisory staff. |
The B-Scan assesses the degree to which a person responds to challenges to organizational responsibility and effectiveness as expressed in his or her behaviors, attitudes, and judgments.
Characteristics assessed are:
- Personal Style (how an individual sees himself or herself and his or her attitude toward others),
- Emotional Style (understanding of one's own feelings and emotions, those of others, and the way in which one uses that understanding in the business environment),
- Organizational Effectiveness (what it takes to be a contributing member of an organization), and
- Social Responsibility (how effectively an individual interacts with others).
In addition to a Self-report version, there is also a Supervisor version that includes similar characteristics which are rated by the individualís direct supervisor.
