SAFI - Self Assessment & Feedback Instruments are used by individuals, teams and organisations for self-development based on instrument-generated report. The following steps are involved in SAFI. These steps have been very well incorporated in the software-generated reports:
|1.|| Completion of the instrument:|
The respondent responds to the items of the instrument, according to given the instructions.
|2.|| Conceptual Input:|
The respondent reads the short account of the theory underlying the instrument.
The respondent then reads his/her scores and their interpretation, generated by the computer.
The respondent then reads the software-generated feedback.
|5.|| Action Planning:|
The respondent picks up two or three suggestions given at the end of the report and prepares to implement them for a minimum of two months.
The respondent implements the action plan, keeping note of satisfactory or unsatisfactory experiences.
The respondent again responds to the instrument after about 6 months to see significant changes in the scores.
SAFI tools are a unique outcome of the wide-ranging contributions made by the HRD Guru, Dr. Udai Pareek, in the field of psychology, applied behavioual sciences and human resources. In the fast changing economic and social scenario, SAFI tools - a set of psychometric instruments, help in understanding various aspects of human behaviour from simple to complex; from individual level to organizational context.
EMPI's Udai Pareek HR-LABS, a centre of excellence, under the Chairmanship of Dr. Udai Pareek is recognised for taking initiatives. The recent initiative is the development of software for the various tests available in Dr. Pareek's book Training Instruments in HRD & OD (2nd Ed., Tata McGraw-Hill, 2002). These software-generated feedback reports are now made available to public globally by putting them online.
The SAFI tools are the only instruments in the world that have highly exhaustive feedback reports (approximately 15-20 pages), and most importantly, provide suggestions for improvement. These tools are based on certain concepts and theories and the reports contain all the theories on which the instruments are based, along with the interpretation of the scores. The interpretation is based on norms developed from data of thousands of respondents from a large range of organisations. The reports, which are self-explanatory, offer an individual and the organisation an opportunity to discover oneself and start the journey for self-development.
These instruments attend to both individual as well as organisational needs. SAFI tools help in gaining better understanding of personal effectiveness, role effectiveness, team effectiveness and organisational effectiveness. The instruments are properly standardised and extensively researched. These have high reliability and validity.
The easy-to-understand instruments and user-friendly technology ensures anywhere anytime access to in-depth interpretation and concrete suggestions to one and all: students, executives, supervisors, managers, organisational leaders, trainers, consultants, sales people, parents, teachers, counselors and all those who wish to embark on a journey of growth and development.
We welcome you to the world of SAFI. Best of luck!
