Getting started when you don't manage a team

Valence has tools to help individuals learn and improve on their own

Updated over a week ago

You've discovered Valence and you don't manage your own team. Valence has tools available for individual contributors to which will make it simple and quick to develop professionally. I'll highlight 3 key tools.

  1. My Perspective: A personality tool to improve self awareness (easiest way to start)

  2. Pair Perspective (if others in your organization are on Valence): A one-to-one working style comparison for peers

  3. Reflect 360: A lightweight way to get feedback from colleagues (most impact of the tools)

  4. My Habit: A simple way to set goals and track them (powerful if you're committed to improving)

My Perspective: Learn about yourself and see how you're similar to or different from colleagues

Perspective is an insightful personality assessment that lets you know how you see the world across 4 main spectrums broken down into 20 lenses.
It's great for anyone curious to learn more about your natural tendencies, improving self awareness or just having a bit of fun with an activity. 

Once you complete your Perspective you'll be able to compare with your colleagues using Pair Perspective. You'll learn how to work better with them and turn differences from pain points into assets.

Pair Perspective: A one-to-one working style comparison for peers

Once you have discovered your own Perspective, you can compare yours with others in your organization to identify where you're similar (so together, you have a blindspot) or different (so you might have friction).

Reflect 360: Get feedback from colleagues in a couple minutes of effort

Want to know where you need to improve and are doing well... but don't want your colleagues to have to go through a long and painful feedback survey? The Reflect 360 tool is a easy and simple way to get colleagues to give you feedback on what are the most important areas for you to improve upon.

It's easy, fast, and anonymous, and you can really quickly determine what areas your colleagues and supervisors think you can focus on to improve.

My Habit: Set goals and track yourself to achieve them

We often set goals but often fail to follow through.

With My Habit you can set a goal, receive regular reminders and track yourself. To go the extra mile you can also ask others for feedback on whether you're following through on your goals.
It's a great way to hold yourself accountable to doing something you know is a good idea.

It's not so bad to be all alone. We'll ensure you learn so much all your colleagues will want to know your secrets to success.
