SOAR means “fly, ascend, climb, hover, rise”. A good illustration for it is the flight of an eagle, with its open wings and search of favorable air currents, to ascend high with no big effort, and there remaining, able then to focus on meaningful objectives with an enlightened panoramic view.
A SOAR Profile is a personal communication behavior assessment with four trait dimensions: Dominant, Extrovert, Patient, and Analytical. It is produced by a computerized tool by confronting one’s responses to a set of questions with over 21.000 behavioral simulations. It is an objective, fast, and accurate way to help people understand how they behave when communicating, their leadership styles, motivators and demotivators, levels of energy, and their adaptation to the surrounding environment. It allows many applications like the Model for Selecting & Recruiting, which supports candidates analysis as to find the best match with the position requirement.
The SOAR approach aims to produce a clear understanding about one’s personality, guiding him or her through a path of effective personal development. The SOAR study has achieved levels of 92.5% margin of accuracy when applied, in a sample of 5,000 people in the United States, Canada and Latin America. The SOAR study has been applied to more than a million people of different cultures in the United States, Latin America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
