Any worthwhile endeavor requires the right tools at the right time.  Developing individual and organizational leadership is no different.

 

Far too often, companies jump right into training without understanding where leaders are performing and what obstacles may be in their way.

 

We are assessment experts who use validated tools, backed up with our professional certifications.  We encourage clients to consider assessments and offer them a choice of tools to use.

 

Incorporate assessments in your leadership projects to better target needs, increase engagement, and sustain the investments made in organizational leadership.

If you working to build the leadership talent for your organization to grow and prosper, we can help you leverage the entire D6 process:  Decision, Discover, Design, Develop, Deliver & Deploy. 

We use various tools to help provide a measurable indicator of a leaders current performance as well as understand their natural tendencies and skills.  We also have tools that help us prioritize leaders development and create action plans that support their growth through personal understanding before attempting to lead others.

The following is a list of some of the most widely used assessments we use with our clients.

Have you ever wondered why some people just don’t get you? Or ever thought “I cannot even begin to know what my boss needs—even when I ask her, I still don’t know.”

Most of us have felt that way at one time or another! The good news is there’s an effective tool designed to help you understand yourself AND other people. Everything DiSC® helps you build more effective working relationships based on an understanding of different behavioral styles.

Fueled by the powerful data collected by our assessments, our reports are designed to address your needs, from selection and high-potential identification to executive-level development.

HoganSelect Identify candidates’ work style, understand their core drivers, and recognize patterns of behavior that could get in their way.

HoganDevelop Identify strengths, shortcomings, and values, and provide managerial tips to ensure that you get the most from your employees, and that they get the most out of their careers.

HoganLead Give leaders a clear understanding of their performance capabilities, challenges, and drivers, and provide them the strategic self-awareness that makes good leaders great.

Strengths Finder 2.0 helps people uncover their natural strengths and talents.  Businesses and organizations have spent far too long pointing out people’s weaknesses and shortcomings. Gallup’s assessment themes will help leaders identify and leverage their natural strengths. We suggest pairing this tool with our 360-degree assessments to offer the complete picture of natural strength and current performance.

EQi 2.0 is an assessment that helps leaders focus on emotional intelligence and the relational skills relevant to their role as leaders. In fact, the feedback from this assessment is primary focused on leadership, not management. Information shared with the leader in this report includes self-perception, self-expression, interpersonal skills, decision-making and stress management.  

OPTM_360

OPTM 360 gives your leaders easy to understand, prioritized advice for changing their behaviors.  It’s superior to other 360s because it provides clear priorities for change; ensures specific, practical advice; eliminates defensive reactions; helps your leaders quickly move from feedback to action; and dramatically reduces the administrative burden for the organization.

Polaris® Leadership 360 Survey is a web-based, multi-rater survey used to summarize strengths and development needs of individual leaders and their peer groups.  It provides a comprehensive report, and when paired with feedback and coaching, offers leaders a clear perspective of their strengths and opportunities, given the feedback of their others they regularly work with.  Clients have appreciated the depth of feedback and data needed for effective goal setting and developmental planning with this validated assessment tool.
