Aon and the LPGA Tour began working together on the Aon Risk Reward Challenge, a first of its kind initiative which tracks the performance of players on the most strategically challenging holes on each tour. To further assess player performance and potential, they recently collaborated to help the LPGA identify players with the highest potential for development and success. Using key insights from Aon’s Adaptive Employee Personality Test (ADEPT-15), the LPGA has established a tailored approach to existing athlete development programs and services.
- What they found: top assessment performers take two fewer strokes on average compared to lower assessment performers and as a result earn up to 4x more.
- ADEPT-15 takes a scientific, trait-led approach to measure the core behaviors required for success across all roles within an organization. It uncovers the unique aspects of an individual’s personality to help hire, promote and develop the very best talent.
- What happens off the course is important, too. The study found that the traits of top-performing female golfers include ambition, consistency, self-awareness and independence, in addition to being composed, positive and seeing the big picture.
