A situational theory approach:

The persolog® personality model
Today, the persolog® Personality Factor Model is located in the area of situation-theoretical approaches. The difference to the dispositional trait theory approaches is that persolog does not claim to identify and describe distinct personality traits, but to describe situational behavior. For this purpose, the model uses the basis of these four quadrants.

Areas of application

of the persolog® Personality Factor Model

For whom is the Certification?

The certification is designed for trainers, consultants, HR managers and coaches who would like to use the persolog® Personality Factor Model in one of the following areas:
Change Management
If people come under pressure in the change process or have inner resistance to change, their behavior in this change process must be closely examined. It is necessary to deal with inner, possibly blocking, beliefs and to find out the causes of inner conflicts, i.e. to become aware of the dynamics between intentions, values and beliefs. All this, as well as an appropriate adaptation of one's own behavior to the new circumstances, can be best ensured with the personality model through various techniques and methods.
"People are hired for their expertise and fired for their personality." There could be no better way to describe the biggest mistake in filling key positions than with this sentence by John Geier. Every new appointment comes with risks. How many unspoken expectations will your candidate face? How suitable is the position, really? Especially if there is more than one decision maker for the key position, you are dealing with numerous unspoken expectations that can end up causing a candidate with potential to fail in the field. Therefore, you need to check the compatibility as best as possible in advance. With the personality model, you can make sure that you find the best match for your key positions.
Human Resources Development
Top employees need to be promoted. The persolog® Personality Factor Model supports the targeted definition of starting points for personality development, so that employees are promoted in the areas in which their strengths lie.
Selling and negotiating
Most of the time, only a little bit is missing to close a big deal. Most salespeople fail to close the deal because they do not respond to their customer's personality - and this is because they neither know their own personality nor recognize that of their customer. Only those who are aware of their own behavioral patterns and also correctly assess those of their customer know how to profitably align the two. The personality model is ideally suited to solve precisely this challenge.
Employee management
80% of the daily work of managers consists of communication. If you want to lead successfully, you have to communicate authentically, clearly and, above all, in a way that is appropriate to the employee. For example, if an employee shows conscientious behavior, it is the manager's task to pick up the employee on his or her communication level - even if the manager's behavioral tendency is dominant, for example. The persolog® Personality Factor Model helps us understand how we succeed in responding to the communication needs of others.
People who come to you for coaching have very different challenges. They want to break through beliefs, change automatisms and, above all, understand more about what happens to their behavior in certain situations. With the persolog® Personality Factor Model you can find concrete starting points that help you and your coachee to achieve the coaching goals.
Team development
Turning average teams into top teams; that's what every manager, entrepreneur and coach wants. Most of the time, teams don't work because of communication problems, unclear role understandings or disruptors. This is exactly where the Personality Model comes in. Make team structures visible with the Personality Model and strengthen the performance of your team.
Whether schools, vocational schools, training companies or associations - all these organizations have a holistic educational mission. A central part of this mission: to promote the spiritual, mental and cognitive development of young people. With the persolog® Teenager-Profile (based on the persolog® Personality Factor Model) you have a tool at hand that supports you in mastering exactly this important challenge. With the certification to the persolog® Personality Factor Model you can also work with this profile.

More Questions?

Here are our FAQ
How does the certification process work?
Unlike a face-to-face certification, the digital certification gives you access to the certification on our Online Academy learning platform. You can work through the content at your own pace.
Is it really worth it?
"Is it worth it?" This question we get asked more often than any other. And our answer is always the same: It will be one of the best investments of your life. The know-how and the depth of the persolog® Personality Factor Model will help you in all areas of life. No matter if you are a trainer, a human resource manager, a leader, an entrepreneur or an employee. You gain an understanding of why people are the way they are and why they do what they do. You develop a common language that helps you better manage all situations in life, no matter how easy or difficult.
Afterwards, am I on my own?
Another clear no. A team of 40 people at persolog will help you - with all your questions. With us, you are not stuck in a queue. We are there for you and are more than happy to help you.
What is the difference to the other many D-I-S & C models?
This is not answered in one sentence, but briefly summarized: We got the latest model that the inventor Prof. Dr. John Geier developed. He has improved some things here, e.g. he has separated the questionnaires "most likely" and "least likely". So you get three meaningful charts - which is not the case with many other providers. In addition: We are convinced that behavior is situational and can always change. This means that with us you don't hear "You're red". But rather "You're behaving in a dominant manner." Dealing with this and dividing it into 20 different key figures is extremely helpful in preventing stereotyping.
