REACH TNA Profiles

TNA’s are they worth the hassle?

Wikipedia states – ‘A Training Needs Analysis (TNA) is a review of learning and development needs within an organisation. It considers the knowledge, skill and behaviours that people need and how to develop them effectively.’

Commonly doing a Training Needs Analysis can be a long and complex process involving hundreds of performance appraisals; they can be major undertakings and take several months to complete. And what about the $$$? Are they worth it?

TNA’s are an important piece of the growth puzzle for individuals and companies however they are falling short in delivering outcomes. Why?

  1. TNA’s take too long to complete, loss of interest, goal posts have moved. TNA now deemed redundant.
  2. TNA’s are performed then what’s next? No easy recognition of what training will help.
  3. One size fits all. Training has been identified however are we giving the wrong people the right training?

The REACH Ecosystem has been developed to ensure TNA’s are; quick (ave 12minutes per TNA), based on trait characteristics, functional skills and self-awareness, provide you with specific training matched to help, only the right people highlighted for the right training.

REACH combines the science of analyzing human traits using psychometrics together with measuring agility (REACH) that can be grown by developing awareness, skills, resilience and a growth mindset.

REACH is measured as a Quotient (a score out of 5) and is visually represented by an individual’s REACH Zone.

Higher REACH = Improved performance across role and industry

An individual’s primary archetype is identified as one of 4 primary styles: Counselor (green), Coach (blue), Advisor (yellow) and Driver (red), growing agility into the other styles is achieved by developing the skills most commonly associated with the other primary styles. As a person grows their agility to stretch into the other styles, they grow their REACH and in turn improve their effectiveness in different situations.

The REACH Framework uses Trait Characteristics (Psychometrics), Functional Skills and Self-Awareness to Target and Measure Growth:


The REACH Framework explores two dimensions of Trait Characteristics – The Relational Dimensions and Achieving Dimensions:


Relating Dimensions describe how individuals tend to interact with others in common settings.

The 5 Relational Dimensions in REACH are:

  • Affiliation
  • Consideration
  • Openness
  • Status Motivation
  • Self-Protection


Achieving Dimensions describe how individuals approach tasks and goals under normal circumstances.

The Achieving Dimensions in REACH are:

  • Intensity
  • Assertiveness
  • Risk Tolerance
  • Adaptability
  • Decision-Making


The REACH framework analyzes 16 skills grouped into four clusters:


  • Assimilating team members
  • Cultivating team spirit
  • Identifying personal needs
