Let's Get Started... 
Here's What We Will Cover:

So you’re on your way to becoming a PI Champion! This quick start guide will help you get familiar with the methodology and software before you attend the PI Certification Workshop.

This six-step guide will walk you through two “PI Learn” courses designed to familiarize you with the Predictive Index science and Team Optimization methodology before you attend the full PI Certification Workshop. It is estimated to take one hour or less to complete this guide.

Before we get started, be sure to download the lesson checklist shown on the left. It will help you keep track of your progress.

PART 1: Understanding Behaviors With PI

Estimated time: 50 minutes

#1: Head, Heart, Briefcase

Estimated time: 5 minutes

Note: When you click on the first lesson, you will be asked to create a free PI Learn account with your name and email address.

Lesson Overview

When I’m teaching the PI Certification Workshop, one of the first phrases I introduce is “head, heart, briefcase.” And when you read this lesson, you’ll understand why. You’ll learn how the whole person shows up at work, and why that’s so important.

The interactive diagram in this lesson is a great visual for the head, heart, briefcase relationship.

on drives, needs, and behaviors.

#2: What Drives Your People

Estimated Time: 5 minutes

Lesson Overview

The relationship between people’s drives, needs, and behaviors is so powerful. In this lesson you’ll learn this relationship and see why it is the basis for PI’s assessments. Then, get a brief overview of the Behavioral, Cognitive, and Job Assessments.

#3: PI Foundations

Estimated time: 30 minutes

Lesson Overview

If you’re going to pick one lesson to learn more about, this is the one! In this section you’ll experience an interactive video that will teach you the fundamentals of the PI Behavioral Assessment.

Find out where all the knowledge you just learned about is stored in the PI system, and how it’s organized. You’ll definitely need to know your way around a Person Page as you start out on your PI Champion journey!
