The TMS Opportunities-Obstacles Profile (QO2) highlights people’s predisposition to seeing Opportunities versus Obstacles in particular situations, and their probable approach to innovation, change and risk. If you are operating in an environment where your teams or clients are seeking improved decision making, more effective problem solving and stronger clarity around goals, then the QO2 is the right solution.

The Profile provides valuable insights as to why some people:

  1. Are threatened by change, while others are energised by it
  2. Hold on to the past, while others race towards the future
  3. Only see problems, while others see opportunity and solutions
  4. Assume the worst (glass half empty), while others see potential (glass half full)
  5. Find it difficult to set goals, while others are driven by them

Understanding these differences allows leaders, HR and L&D professionals to more successfully:

  • Design and execute change programmes
  • Develop resilience in the workplace
  • Identify thought leaders and innovators
  • Design teams better equipped to run risk related projects

The QO2 is a powerful tool in helping members understand others approach to risk taking and openness to new ideas. When selecting climbing partners, QO2 really comes to the fore especially when making a summit bit for Everest.
