I was thrilled to be joined on the A Better HR Business show by Professor Peter Saville of SHL, Saville Assessment, and 10x Psychology so we could discuss his life and many business successes.

Peter Saville is arguably the best known, most successful, and highly acclaimed Psychologist within the Business Psychology Profession.

“As a skilled psychometrician and visionary leader, Peter Saville has made a significant impact on professional psychology in the UK and beyond. The widespread use of his tests by major companies and public bodies is testament to his remarkable ideas.”

The British Psychological Society

With a usage of some 50 million of his measures of ability, personality, motivation and talent annually, Peter has been described as “One of the most influential Psychologists of our time”.

Peter founded SHL in 1977 where he developed the Occupational Personality Questionnaire (OPQ) and the first commercial Big 5 Personality measure.

Peter went on to found Saville Consulting (now Saville Assessment), where he developed the Saville Wave questionnaire. The company was acquired by Willis Towers Watson in 2015 for £43 million.

Already a Fellow, in 2012 Peter received the highest BPS award, Honorary Fellowship, in recognition of his work in “Flying the flag for Britain for objective assessment” and “Creating the global gold standard for psychometric tests”.

In 2014, Peter was awarded Academic Fellowship of the CIPD, their highest honour.

Peter has written over 200 publications and spoken in over 60 countries worldwide.

Peter was Professor of Psychology at Queen’s University, Belfast and is currently Professor of Leadership Studies at Kingston University, London.

Growing A Project Management & Administration Business With An HR Focus In The Performing Arts Industry

Rachel Barker

Rachel Barker recently stepped-up her HR consulting business to the next level and I really love the way she’s gone about it.

Rachel helps leaders in the performing arts to successfully manage their people and create better organisations.

During the course of our discussion, I asked Rachel:

  • Tell us a little about your background and led you to launch your own consulting business? How did it feel?
  • What consulting kind of consulting services do you provide and to whom?
  • Most people who are employed in some sort of HR-related role, when they decide to start their own consultancy they go very broad and very generic. I love the fact that you’ve decided to focus on a particular niche. Why did you choose a narrow area and was it a big or scary decision?

  • What are your plans for getting new clients?
  • What do you see coming down the road for HR and the world of work and how should listeners get prepared for these changes?

Growing A Redundancy Process Coaching Business – with Jamie Getgood

As you know, we’re going through some very challenging times. People are being laid off around the world without warning and, in many cases, without any support.

Jamie Getgood

Downsizing, retrenchment, call it what you will – the whole area of redundacy is fraught with danger and painful emotion.

However, it doesn’t all have to be doom and gloom. My recent podcast guest, Jamie Getgood, has helped build strategies that have revolutionised and streamlined the redundancy process.

These strategies help protect the company from legal fallout, protect the brand from negative press, engage and support leaders and, best of all, the strategies help the people involved. These are people with families, children, mortgages and bills who need to transition through this difficult process.

Jamie helped General Motors Holden, one of Australia’s largest car manufacturers, through closure of its operations in Australia and he was a leading voice in the closure of the whole industry.

Growing The Predictive Index

In 1942, twenty-six-year-old Arnold Daniels volunteered for the U.S. Army Air Corps. Shipped off to England, he was placed as a flight navigator and his team soon logged more than 30 missions—all without a single combat casualty.

When commanders noted the team’s record, they sent a psychologist in to work with Daniels—to study just what made their teamwork so successful.

This was Daniels’ first introduction to psychometric testing, and what would become a lifetime passion: solving business problems through the lens of understanding individuals.

After the war, he returned to Boston, where he briefly attended Harvard to study workplace psychology. In 1952 he released the first Predictive Index Assessment.

predictive-index

In 1955, Daniels founded PI Worldwide (now called The Predictive Index).

The Predictive Index Behavioral Assessment™ was created through a normative sample of thousands of people and has since been the subject of nearly 500 validation studies. It has received continual updates and today represents a well-established, business-relevant, and scientifically-proven measure of behavioral tendencies in the workplace.

Over six decades since, thousands of organizations have used The Predictive Index in nearly every job and industry around the world.

The Predictive Index helps businesses and organizations all over the globe overcome workplace challenges through a unique blend of scientific behavioral assessments, groundbreaking software, exceptional management training, and professional consulting from the world’s top workplace behavior specialists.

In short, The Predictive Index helps companies understand how their people think and work to help employees maximize their productivity.

The Predictive Index helps more than 8,000 clients across 142 countries; I’ve used it many times in different countries myself, so I was delighted to be joined on the podcast by the CEO of Predictive Index, Mike Zani.
