GALLUP© Builder Profile 10™

Useful for any team or entrepreneur– this Assessment scientifically shows you the make-up of you or your team’s business-building Talents.

Gallup’s research into the basic building blocks of an exceptional business team forms the backbone of their popular BP10™ Assessment.

Gallup designed its new BP10 Assessment to identify the 10 traits and three Alpha Builder Roles of successful business builders. So important are these talents and roles, that Gallup’s research validates the BP10 Assessment as a key hiring tool, especially for leadership teams.

With the BP10, you can experience the metrics of your team in action.

The Two Ways to Use BP10’s Knowledge:

Building Great Teams

What impressed us about this assessment was the ability to have actual metrics on the scores of each person ranked from strongest to weakest, and from 1 to 100%. This created proprietary coaching for each person to help them use their best talents well, while helping them partner with others for talents they may not possess to a high degree.

Secondary to this was the ability to look at the team as a whole in a Team Grid. In this way, we could increase the potential of the teams when members combined their talents together.

Great teams work well for reasons beyond mere development potential. Great teams start with each person’s internal wiring and neuroscience. We contribute our best when we do something we already love.

Understand how your teams are wired to build your organization. Maximize strong abilities and minimize potential problems and gaps.

Take a look at this Team Grid of an actual team we worked with.

*Gallup’s BP10 assessment is a validated hiring tool, especially for Leadership and Executive Teams. Gallup’s CliftonStrengths assessment is not validated for hiring.

  • Great potential
    • A few “super star” employees
    • Two talents (Delegator and Independence) where the combined team’s scores are in Gallup’s Top Quartile of business builders
  • Balancing potential
    • Elevating other team members in specific talents to lead in their own strong potentials (Knowledge, Profitability, and Selling)
  • Potential gaps
    • The Risk talent does not have a person in the Top Quartile, although there is one person close to TQ
  • Potential problems
    • Putting undue focus on one or two high potential individuals
    • Burnout for high potential individuals
    • Stringent refocusing needed if burnout is occurring; what’s Plan B or C?

We help you dig in to maximize the intelligence of your teams and minimize problems.

Developing Your Leadership or Other Teams by the Use of Multiple Assessments

Many times, we pair BP10 with the TeamingAcumen™ Framework, Overcoming The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, or Gallup’s CliftonStrengths Assessment to accelerate leadership team development. Pairing these tools together gives you better developmental possibilities. From team intelligence to unwinding damaging behaviors, we help your teams work better together.

Showing your leaders and employees that you care about their development may mean the difference between a successful, harmonious organization that retains talent and one which loses precious time, capacity, and productivity.

Your teams’ success will increase as team members naturally develop their talents. Each person will become more strategically integrated inside your teams, able to achieve objectives with less friction, able to leverage the team’s greatest talents in pursuit of success.

Building Your Entrepreneurial Skills

Startup Founders – Are you wondering about your business-building abilities?

The BP10 helps you understand how you’re wired to build your business, so you can lean into your strong abilities and understand where you may need some help. Don’t worry – you have some awesome talents to build your business. This is one of the most confidence-building assessments you’ll ever take. Listen to one of our entrepreneurial clients discuss her experience with BP10 as a startup founder: 

“I wasn’t sure that there was something unique in BP10 that I wouldn’t have uncovered in prior personality assessments. The assessment was still new and was not yet well-known. Margaret reviewed my results in the context of the substantial data that has already been gathered in support of the BP10 framework. The BP10 format clearly outlines where I shine and possibly struggle as the leader of my own business. The tools available help me understand these areas of growth and opportunity while  building strategic approaches to maximize my potential and that of my business. I can better articulate my business and entrepreneurial strengths and needs for support. Using them, I can build a growth plan for my business with confidence and know what resources to work with to validate.”

The BP10 helps founders discover their innate talents for starting or growing their businesses. It is reliable and predictive of individual performance based on the proven qualities of successful builders.

Gallup even tested BP10 with 155 CEOs of the Inc. 500 list, (Inc’s annual list of the fastest growing private companies) with startling results. These entrepreneurs scored an average of 14 points higher in overall BP10 Conglomerate Scores than their national sample counterparts, showing a higher predictive correlation of business success. Are you like them?

The BP10 will show your ranked results of the 10 Builder Talents, while also designating your top Alpha Builder Role inside your company – Expert, Conductor or Rainmaker. Your ability to work within your Alpha Builder Role becomes the best use of your capacity, while gaining better outcomes in terms of business growth.

But the BP10 goes further – it can identify your potential blind spots, gaps and weaknesses. Gallup’s research found that we must account for all 10 Talents and three Alpha Builder Roles to run successful businesses.

Cultural Strategies provides BP10 team workshops and coaching or individual coaching. We can also help you debrief your assessment results and help you formulate goal achievements using your BP10 Talents for your business.

BP10 Development Reports are only meant as the starting point of your development, not the end result. Coaching increases the power of you and your teams. You will learn how to Discover, Develop, and Direct your Builder Talents through the coaching environment.

Sample BP10 Coaches’ Insight Report (CIR)

As an addition to your BP10 Development Report, you can add the BP10 Coaches’ Insight Report or CIR. The CIR is a snapshot of your BP10 results on a ranked rating of each  Talent and each of the three Alpha Builder Roles  from 1 to 100. The Report also gives you two additional benchmarks:

  • Your score vs. Gallup’s Top Quartile of builders (signified as a small black-lined box on your Overall Talent Score, on each of the 10 Builder Talents, and on each of the three Alpha Builder Roles), and
  • Your score compared to Gallup’s General Population of Builders (signified as a small green bar on your Overall Talent Score, on each of the 10 Builder Talents, and on each of the three Alpha Builder Roles).

The CIR Report is most predictive of a person’s potential for excellence inside each of their Builder Talents and useful as a baseline for team development. During coaching, we not only use this report to build the potential for great excellence, but also to gauge what might need bolstering or partnering for true success.
