Some tips if you feel really stuck in your position your job but we're gonna kick.
Things off with something called personality test more and more employers are giving them we're gonna go right out onto.
San Diego where we have the CEO and chief creative officer at the Jacob Tyler group joining us.
Less collegial hello thanks -- -- Hi thanks -- I don't know Semitic Tyler creative group the company has that.
-- -- full service advertising agency specializing in you know all kinds of brand communications traditional car accidents.
And so forth and you and decided to give your employees a personality.
Yeah -- her a long time date we we've been his -- years and after about our -- furious -- start doing it why.
Well we found let alone.
When we were we were working with some business consultant seeking.
We were measuring people's success in the company based on the positions and when they -- and and Ali was just to constitute -- -- -- it.
Really worked out great help define.
Who they are and the rules that are there -- -- and and how -- -- -- -- said since it doesn't antennas that he -- Yes okay and there is that right now I know do some research on these tests how much does that cost you.
I mean you know we paid we have about 32 employees right now BP close to maybe 20000 dollars all in.
She you you know -- -- have them read by a professional and you know reported.
But in the long run if that's decreasing our our turn over.
-- -- hiring the right person for -- thrown for specific you know role in the company.
Well it's worth every.
Agreed so we have to go through some of the sample questions on a personality test that they can imagine myself for many people being like how I -- hunt until right.
The question test about my personality OK so here's a sample question I may deceive people by being friendly.
When I really dislike them okay -- -- true -- question marks see faults okay what happens if these nature I would stay true to that.
I go -- pay what does that say about me.
Well OK so let me remind you I'm not a guy that understands -- just I don't know I will say I will say that.
You know from reality -- false and and one of the things that I -- you know noted it.
For my entry per you know honesty right in to a point where even -- -- -- so sometimes this is sometimes.
That would question about managerial -- -- -- part of the training that I doubt.
Is you know to the -- -- answers like that -- questions laid out.
Is -- you almost confident you know I've been obvious holes in -- like a jet -- give my knowledge and get out.
Because I may have had to be overwhelming to some people right so I mean and and that's it at that and you know that's an interesting point just kind of the -- you know -- Who you are in a specific.
Position when you're dealing with.
Necessarily that they're the right answers or there's a wrong answer there is what all the answers say about you and and what type of person you're looking to put in a group with other personalities.
-- yeah similar personalities opposite personalities -- pair up the different -- Well absolutely there is a couple -- and he should realize choose you know there's there's about a hundred any questions and some of the questions are the exact same written in different ways and when you're when you're dealing -- from number five to number -- was -- you don't remember you know what you said senator we've had situations where police -- tried to cheat.
And see what we think they and then.
Shouldn't you know.
Being caught the end going hey this isn't really who you are.
You know -- -- -- -- but we try to really understand it and how that he's and -- let's say.
You're answering questions and you're going for a role -- project management.
You have to be very very process driven an organized I would be horrible process project manager according to my results in the in the -- -- Ever want to see my results let's go to that the second question so we can get more of them and okay my thoughts tend to be sensible down to earth -- -- Australia don't know or Fox.
I would say that that's a weird one for me I think I said I don't know because I think they're sensible but I really don't -- It's -- that got -- Are it's there you who.
Say you had said Donald you do tend to be debt that's true what what kind of personality does that give you are you -- well overall.
Well yeah it's obviously.
Yeah there's a bunch of different roles that come into play and I'm not sure let you know whether it's you're.
In that case yeah I would be considered a guess sensible and that's one answer how to beat fifteen it better that you can answer definitely.
And then the fine now sample question we have here is they tend to be reserve -- -- problems myself -- -- -- I think is very tricky this -- -- to hunt didn't I don't know I didn't let rest up.
Think -- -- OK you know once someone is always complaining.
That's a good thing but then you also on someone working for you.
Who knows how to address this situation right.
Yeah and I -- How things keeping things to want to sell I mean I think I would prefer people who.
She didn't you know let let us know and there's always a tactful way to do -- Right but it and you know I definitely look at your fault Paulson as well I guess that's part of my personality which definitely ended up towards the on the -- very -- Yet not enough reserves.
I think that that would intent said he is not in there and yeah something to that in fact you -- a -- bordering -- annoying but.
I really got.
It was it was just very easy for me understand my role -- how I -- in the company I should not be the chief operations officer I would fail -- not at all.
Yeah based on my results were ICC is more on me that business developments.
Got two final questions for you and what is this afternoon on personalities.
That come up OK is there a way to characterize the different types that you look in the fall entail.
And then also do you recommends that other companies unit tests like this is it worth the investment.
Well yeah yeah I mean and not to answer that question I definitely agree for example we've had a few people that were in project management roles -- -- -- example doesn't work anywhere doing very well in those positions and when we started giving it tests.
We realize that it ultimately those holes are suited for them so from a reader Jim points employee you're really trying to help -- guy that -- to.
Where they can succeed most I'm not saying that you have to let go of those people.
But if there's a position in the company networks fitting the -- and there -- specific personality.
That's gonna make more sense and be and and keep your daughter employee retention -- in the long -- -- -- It's an -- -- the range.
Personalities are you know from.
You know go across the board.
You know from reserves allowed except her I mean all all the way the I don't strategic thinkers are not strategic you know there and -- resident Barry Barry different.
You know rounds you know from a ten to one so they're they're really everywhere you went out all -- it's Qaeda.
ET that the peace species of that puzzle and then yet determined in -- log on to someone asked.
Less claimed Sunday he's so much for bringing us as interesting story here website is -- -- come teller dot com DSL senior is weigh in on the chat and I love this.
The only time if you -- personality testing before you get married.
Lines okay we're gonna go over a doctor what do you do in the assembly Tuesday on career accelerator day with some tips on how what do you needn't feel stuck.
In your position had he -- stuck.
Yes there's a collective feeling of stuff has apparently didn't -- added to an end at least hearing and what also is this is a recent survey from right management founded.
65% of people are unhappy in her job event.
And to compound that a survey last -- from Mercer found that nearly a third of people wanted to quit their job.
Networking market -- by hiring isn't there they're laying off people and I want people -- -- how are you doing more for less than it's not as rewarding.
And then the problem is the options to get away just aren't there see -- that collective feeling of stuff going on so.
What innings I wanna think about in this week's data column on Fox Business with the figure how can -- help people figure out how to get unstuck because it really is serious problem.
And the first thing is very simple.
You have to confront the problem not to sound like the preachy psychologist like that you have to Simon -- -- But that's what I -- actually done -- -- it's my job.
The -- one of the challenges and as you would get frustrated me react as they understood equivalent only of -- wanna find something else seduce you can't do that you've got to start by stepping back.
What is it that's making me feels.
-- or unhappy.
We're just frustrated identified a -- identify it articulated write it down understand what it is before you take that next got it.
A nice second -- second to business and not to get people homework but they did some nuggets Tuesday -- slide -- give people homework to do.
Step back and actually write out -- sketch.
-- -- -- -- it is very hard to do but write your own job description see what are the things.
I would ideally like to be doing at one of the things that would be acceptable.
For me that we did at least get -- -- baseline -- not feeling stock.
In that particular position in that we're in moving forward.
That's -- and then look for internal opportunities because it's much easier to kinda get promoted or just switched around.
-- -- Yes I see -- Hillary -- -- -- brave thing lateral here's the thing is sometimes a bit of the best opportunities -- right under your nose and you don't know if you don't asks if you can identify those things to others.
Flexibility in your schedule for everybody could be having more challenging to be maybe it's more -- or maybe it's a different type of compensation or different have the benefit.
Child care or whatever it is that you need.
Your boss might not be aware of it from the scene to find a way to bring up at a reasonable way but make the argument.
And look for that internal opportunity of war.
The possibility to move laterally or into another position if your company's mid size or larger sometimes there are other -- Think -- benefit right good -- and it started there exploring.
External or other -- different opportunity is still the -- -- -- the fourth one is so that we're -- at least taking some reasonable steps to figure out the problem.
Sketch out what it looks like you usually don't want you literally for -- -- yeah.
Before -- could lose the promised it would just jump right away -- I -- I'm just gonna leave.
-- senate -- there might have been so many better options at a higher less -- -- -- it financially probably batter but he's not doing the move.
And -- companies do you wanna keep you especially if you're good because it's very expensive to have to hire some money.
And -- not someone that position you know.
Open for a while other people are feeling it -- and a half here half and it's getting frustrated this morning -- and train people.
It it's a challenge so when you go unexplored as have other opportunities I wanna make sure that people are deliberate about it and -- step back and create a plan.
Author of the -- plan -- this say that but it's.
This thing about what are your goals.
What kind of targets -- it is set for the people woman in need.
The networking events that I'm gonna go to prevent the chat rooms trade publications professional associations -- -- connect with all that stuff.
Have a part of a plan and be very focused and deliberate OPEC.
And then finally when you've done everything.
I always say you need to reach out to people.
Because the job market has and always will be about.
Who you know the network the network needs keep expanding it right always maintain its first of all because we get their jobs we get blinder and has focused and doing here tonight -- always your network -- should always be yes that's a great point.
Yes so back.
Can get out again thank you so much for coming nine.
Let's pull -- the Euro website and your article -- stuck in your dog how to get unstuck on foxbusiness.com now thank you so much where.
Coming on and of course where the author of the new plan fairway that's -- because they -- -- -- -- winning a break and we're going to be coming back in fashion show front and Taylor.
About some great.
Items and health -- that you are -- look appropriate look sharp and the price point might be right -- so we're gonna get you some ideas coming up.
Welcome back everybody this is the career accelerator thought you couldn't hear that cool animation -- that's why there's little delay nonetheless.
I just work is getting interesting these days or at least I think because we -- -- in the magazines and and you don't know if you should repeat them.
For the office so we went right to the source and Allenby and Taylor.
We're joined by Andrew Taylor no relation to a fictitious person that is not and -- but I'm sure that gets you nice restaurant recommendations and reservations and everything else right they had -- -- -- style director Brad and Taylor.
And it's a pretty profitable brands this year really is doing well if you've going in there -- -- national brands many stores.
Good sales so well this is like the icon -- -- to work muscular is perhaps and so what do we view and to work.
You should be looking chic Smart and sophisticated and -- -- -- -- I'd love to show you some of -- look right.
I think you know it's really it's an interesting time too because.
The most recent statistic -- -- it's that close to 58% of women are in the work force right now.
And -- more important than -- is how women present themselves -- the offense and I think one of the keys is to know your environment.
And know where you works you know it's very different dressing and an ad agency vs a law firm.
Right for example environment and today we -- -- take a look at some of our fall collection and look at the new -- -- Summer was very colorful.
Some literally carrying that pops of color in the winter and -- yes color continues into the fall and holiday pay just a little bit different so we -- Let's let's take a look at the first.
Outfit this is -- who works at and Taylor all the women you see they work and Taylor.
And she is wearing a nice little crepe jacket.
Which is perfect a transitional peace between summer and fall movement and it's a pink says you can see the -- did continue and she warning she wears with a neutral -- block so that really -- grounds that and she's wearing our classic silk Hampshire.
And we have this a normal colors but today.
Today we're showing it to you and animal -- Because that said dude that it is heavy this is an animal print you could Wear to the -- I I think definitely and we're looking at three separate pieces three separate pieces and she does her heels are from -- -- well the -- stacked -- Is very much on trend and yes and she you know that and it's very comfortable well and as well and it's slimming.
It's forgiving it's very flattering it's good for work and by -- and round about how much would those three pieces for peace including issues -- -- -- That would come to about 300 dollars 30400 dollars and everything is under a hundred except for the jacket which won 78 -- and you can make -- along -- -- did.
-- -- yes absolutely and I remember to thank -- and now we have.
Lucia Lucia works and our marketing department and Lucia is doing is wearing a what we would normally consider something similar to a pencil skirt but it's a classic skirt with a little bit of flair which gives it more of a fashion edge and I think.
One of the things that we've seen today is that women are much more comfortable expressing their femininity at work.
And they don't need to Wear head to -- -- so this is a great alternative.
Rarely see woman -- -- -- these days you're right let's talk about discouraged though I understand that there is a little bit of of the flare so it is more feminine -- -- the appropriate length.
Yes and I think one of the rules in -- and those who don't -- do's and -- Don't go too short for the office.
This is a very appropriate -- it hits the need yet it's still very flattering and very feminine and in evolution it works out it's very proud of her figures I think it looks great on.
Take the compliment -- Okay and next we have.
And he has -- -- a child now Jessica is what if our store managers and Jessica is wearing a a nice short sleeved sweater or just a really nice thing to -- in the fall season the -- it's really cold.
She's wearing the pink collar yet and she's layered on necklaces there's a party in the front and a party and there is I mean she is in foul on the back.
We love this is actually the same sweater that Kate Hudson -- wearing -- And we love it it also comes an ivory.
And she's wearing it with a pencil skirt and once again you know.
If you're not ready for the snow leopard you can Wear pencil skirt and navy black or other colors what about jewelry for work is that was considered too much is it distracting.
I think it would depend where you work again so I think in -- more creative industry could Wear that necklace and -- somewhat more conservative environment you might not want to Wear that to the office depended on if you're going out for dinner with friends and to me this look.
Based on fabrics.
That Munis tights or or not have a winter confident going into the spring absolutely it's very -- tell this -- it work all the way through the winners decency could Wear with -- it's a great suggestion very -- -- humor now -- -- populists try to get through the next quickly OK perfect.
This is the red and she's also a store manager and she's wearing a trend delays strand which I see -- wearing as well I am.
You're wearing any navy thinks -- provided health experts today it looks -- Kanye and like liberating your both -- we have an extensive -- its collection and Taylor.
And this lace is a little bit different because it's kind of like -- lace overlay.
Actually -- -- yes it's race on an over an abstract print -- and she's worn it with a slim cropped pants.
With their perfect pattern pump.
As well as this cross body bag and all of the accessories including the bag and shoes are and Taylor question about the -- yes.
Are women angst -- Max torque I -- -- -- Hughes.
-- older -- blanket but planning on -- I think this is actually the perfect back for going out or shopping on the weekend if you are carrying a laptop -- files for work clearly that answers -- -- -- -- -- -- And now we have Diana.
Diana's and she's in our PR department.
And actually help -- -- -- organized for today but she is wearing a great data night look -- she's wearing a the very new take on a blazer and -- if you don't want him to go in the standard -- this is a new take with a little blow in the fabric is fantastic.
And she's wearing it with a -- Little black dress which works for the office when you cover up yet but it's great for going out at night.
She's added the Bengals which really dresses it up and that stacked duty.
It's a perfect Clifford dinner -- -- love it it is what some fashion to use which is you not deal.
-- -- Going to work -- -- where you shouldn't go too casual.
I think that's a mistake a lot of people make today I would really -- laid.
Old jeans flip flops ten tied.
Even on Friday you know I think it's so important to make a first impression and dress for the job you want look at the way your boss stresses.
Follow their lead excellent point and the W yeah -- Exactly -- -- scary sometimes you know when in doubt grab it a jacket or blazer its you know -- that.
-- -- worried about if you're if you're pushing the line a little that you probably are yes I think so.
And I think you know I always say when in -- -- -- blazer because it establishes authority and credibility if you walk into her room with a jacket on.
People are just going to look at you like you know she knows what she's talking about him and then also where something that you feel good and it's really important to where things that are natural.
And -- business you obviously have to market and -- see a lot of Kate Hudson.
In -- telemarketing specially now but we've seen other famous people what is a celebrity like Kate Hudson -- -- your -- she.
Helps raise our profile a lot I mean I think today so many people get their fashion cues from what -- Are wearing.
We love working with Kate Hudson because she represents and captures the spirit of the brand so well wouldn't she she she's very wholehearted.
She's a young mom she works is very authentic she's very much and -- Taylor -- yes.
