Do I need to be qualified to complete or administer Realise2?
Realise2 was specifically developed so that it was accessible and interpretable to a general population audience, in support of Capp’s purpose of Strengthening the World. As such, we do not restrict access in allowing people to complete the assessment. We encourage practitioners who want to use Realise2 with their clients to become accredited Strengths Practitioners through our Strengths Practitioner Programme, which can be taken face-to-face or as a remote programme. Upon becoming certified, Strengths Practitioners have demonstrated a level of skill, experience and competence in their use of Realise2.
In order to access and use the Realise2 Team Profile, practitioners are required to be accredited Team Strengths Practitioners. The Realise2 Team Strengths Practitioner Programme is available both face-to-face and as a remote programme. Upon successful completion of the Team Strengths Practitioner Programme, Team Strengths Practitioners have demonstrated a level of skill, experience and competence in their use of Realise2 in relation to teams, including using and debriefing the Realise2 Team Profile.
How does Realise2 compare to other personality or strengths assessments that I might have completed before?
Realise2 is not a personality assessment and is not intended to be. Whereas personality is relatively fixed, our use of our strengths changes over time. As we move into different contexts that require different strengths, some strengths will advance into the foreground, others will recede into the background. Realise2 is a dynamic assessment which recognises the role of changing contexts in our use of strengths, as distinct from personality which is more static and fixed.
Other strengths assessments give you a “top strengths” profile that is also static, rather than dynamic. As such, these assessments can’t distinguish between the strengths you use and those you don’t (realised and unrealised Strengths, respectively), nor can they identify the things you do well but find draining (your learned behaviours), or the things that drain you and where you perform poorly (your weaknesses).
The four-quadrant model is a key feature of Realise2 and distinguishes it from all other personality and strengths assessments. The Realise2 provides a truly holistic and integrated understanding of your individual profile of strengths, weaknesses and learned behaviours through assessing 60 attributes – more than any other assessment – making it much more likely that you will find your Realise2 Profile is an accurate picture of who you are. As such, the construction and output of Realise2 is unlike any personality or strengths assessment you will have taken before.
