Our Methodology

At Konektamundo, we use two unique methodologies to help both our candidate and clients on their recruitment journey. These are the Process Communication Model® (PCM) and Emotional Assertiveness®. PCM is a model of human behaviour and communication developed by Dr Taibi Kahler which has been successfully used for decades by NASA in its astronaut recruitment and selection process. Emotional Assertiveness® is based on the works of John Parr MSc and designed to help understand and manage emotions more effectively, especially in difficult conversations.

Both PCM and Emotional Assertiveness® provide valuable insights into individual personalities, communication styles and emotional reactions which empower us to make better decisions when selecting and matching candidates with companies and their next direct manager.

Konektamundo is changing the way people think about recruitment

At Konektamundo, recruitment is no longer just about finding a great candidate for an open position. We use the Process Communication Model® (PCM) and Emotional Assertiveness® to ensure that our recruitment process goes beyond simply putting a resume in front of the hiring manager. Instead, we seek to understand the unique needs and circumstances of each recruitment situation. PCM takes into account the emotional intelligence of the candidate and uses it to screen for potential misalignments between what the job requires and how the candidate can best contribute.

By focusing on recruitment from this holistic angle, Konektamundo can develop recruitment solutions that lead to successful placements and integrated relationships between the candidate, their new company, manager and team. Our recruitment process is focused on finding the best-fit talent for each situation which allows us to deliver the highest quality recruitment outcomes. Konektamundo is seeking to transform recruitment with PCM and Emotional Assertiveness® so recruitment no longer is just a matter of finding the right candidate; it is about nurturing relationships and ensuring integration between the recruitment process, the candidate, and their new team.

We believe that by utilising PCM and Emotional Assertiveness® in recruitment we can achieve successful placements for both our candidates and clients. We are committed to providing a unique recruitment experience by creating integrated relationships. Konektamundo is striving to find the best-fit talent that will have a positive impact on everyone involved.

What is the Process Communication Model® (PCM)?

The Process Communication Model® (PCM) is a scientifically validated method of identifying and deeply understanding personality structures, as well as anticipating how individuals will respond to specific situations and how they communicate. This award winning methodology is the culmination of over 30 years of research and has been successfully used by over a million people on five continents, with multiple applications in both business and personal contexts. In fact, the PCM methodology is so successful that it is used by NASA to hire astronauts whose personality type is most likely to stand up to the rigorous demands of space travel. It was also the methodology of choice for Bill Clinton during his first presidential campaign and allowed him to identify with voters and communicate more effectively.

The PCM method is based on extensive research which has discovered that everybody has a ‘base’ personality type which is static, as well as a dynamic personality structure which includes all six personality types in different amounts. Each of the six personality types:

  • Perceives the world differently
  • Has a preferred way of communicating
  • Has certain character strengths
  • Has a preferred interaction style
  • Has unique psychological and motivational needs .
  • Reacts in a predictable manner when faced with stressful situations

PCM profiling can show:

  • Personality structure
  • Character strengths
  • Perceptual preferences and ability to shift their point of view
  • Potential compatible and incompatible personality types
  • What motivates people personally and professionally
  • What an individual is likely to do in situations of distress

By deeply understanding a candidate’s personality type, as well as each company in our portfolio, we are able to expertly match people to jobs with which they are highly compatible. The result is that employers receive employees who flourish in their job, contribute positively to the company culture and stay in their job for longer. Candidates benefit by being placed in a job that they love, which fulfils them both personally and professionally.

Konektamundo is a leader in the recruitment space by applying PCM to recruitment to deliver exceptional service to both job seekers and employers.
