Guess and Test: How to Practice giving LAB Profile® Feedback
There are hundreds of thousands of people around the world who using the LAB Profile®.
They ask the questions and use the Profiles they generate for recruitment, for understanding their teammates who they manage, for better understanding of their customers, and knowing how to position offering to those customers.
LAB Profile® Online Practitioner Certification Program recently asked me:
“Are there some resources available to learn how to give proper feedback to people on the results that we get? I have some trouble with that.”
Of course, the first thing I did was analyze her question for embedded LAB Profile® Patterns.
- “Are there some resources available” – That’s an Options Pattern.
- “To learn how to give proper feedback” – Toward and Procedures Patterns.
- “To people on the results we get.” Thing and Person Patterns
- “I have some trouble with that.” – Internal and Away From Patterns.
But the issue is, how to identify what is most important to the person communicating with me?
The most important part of her request is “how to give proper feedback.” This is Procedures Language and includes her Criteria (what is the most important for her).
Toward: when you have a Toward pattern you are focused on achieving a goal. If you don’t have a goal, it is hard to get motivated or to get started. And you don’t like having to deal with problems.
When you are at work, you have what is called a Toward pattern. This means you tend to be focused on achieving a goal. If you don’t have a goal, it is hard to get motivated or to get started. And you don’t like having to deal with problems.
Alternatively, you can listen to the MP3 Understanding & Triggering Motivation where I am doing several demonstrations.
Notice that I have outlined a clear Procedure above, with the exception of the “alternative” in the end of step 4.
When someone wants to learn something, giving them a Procedure to follow makes it much easier than offering them too many options.
If you want to become more proficient in using what I call the Guess and Test LAB Profile® Methodology, and would like to benefit from seeing my demonstrations, here is a special offer:

When you are with people, do you take the time to read and listen not only to WHAT people are saying, but HOW they are saying it? Can you pick up their Patterns and feed them back?
I hope this Procedure will help you master the Guess and Test, so that you can be more certain that you identified the Patterns correctly.
Thanks Maria for a great question!
