PDP ProScan Assessment

ProScan is a management/coaching instrument that can aid in developing better communications, understanding, and mutual respect. PDP focuses on the strengths of people and has proven that when strengths are understood, and then matched with the requirements of a career or situation, positive improvements will occur.

The four cornerstone behavioral traits researched by PDP are:

  • Dominance:  The "take charge" trait

  • Extroversion:  The "people" trait

  • Pace:  The "patience" trait

  • Conformity:  The "systems" trait

Leadership Style:

Your most effective and natural way to LEAD is:

  • Caretaker/Persistent 

You take what comes, adjust as needed then push ahead. Constant observation of everything is a strength, and you probably seek to obtain positions by earning them.
When in a leadership role, you:

  • Show dependability and consistency

  • Prefer an established pace, but will adjust to reasonable change

  • Value promotion based on performance

  • Foster stability and harmony, earns respect of others

  • Press persistently toward goal

Basic/Natural Self:

You are dependable, steady and efficient. Dedicated to respected
programs and people. You are sincerely cautious and conscientious,
wanting things done well.
Able to do repetitive tasks, you usually like a consistent routine. Make
every move count. Can be uncomfortable if placed under too much
unjustified pressure or confrontational environments.
You are friendly and well accepted by others. A cooperative and
peaceful approach is your preference. Do not want yourself or others
taken advantage of.

Priority Environment(s):

Taking charge, becoming more assertive and forceful. Perhaps placed
in a leadership role, or sense the need to take control. May be using
more decisive, analytical and problem-solving skills to achieve desired

Being less communicative, quieter. May result from a change in roles
that require a more objective and direct approach with people. Perhaps
feeling let down, disappointed, or not appreciated by others.
Sensing an urgency to accomplish more in less time. May be pushing to
get more rapid results. Perhaps internal or external deadlines are not
being met, causing a need to move more quickly.

Eliminating or delegating some details. May be taking more risks,
asserting independence or breaking away from tradition. Perhaps there
is pressure to forego quality to increase production, which may minimize
the opportunity to conduct preferred accuracy checks.

Predictor/Outward Self:

A synthesis of the Basic/Natural Self and Priority Environment(s). The Predictor describes how others observe you. 

Precise and systematic. Loyal to respected programs and people.
Sincere, friendly and interested in doing what is best and most helpful
for people.
Diligent in implementing accepted procedures and programs. Place
importance on pleasant, cooperative and non-threatening situations and
Want a structured, orderly and somewhat conventional environment.
Usually perform tasks with meticulous accuracy.
