ASSESSMENTS

RESULTS COME FROM KNOWLEDGE STEEPED IN DATA

We Trust the Data.

Getting top results. Building a healthy organizational culture. Retaining top talent in a highly competitive marketplace. The list is what your organization wants to achieve is long, and it can seem insurmountable. That’s where the data comes in.

We work with several assessments to help our clients achieve business metrics goals. But not just any assessments. We’ve searched the landscape of assessments and have chosen instruments that are backed by thorough research and rigorous, lengthy testing.

Assessments We Use in Our Work

We’ve carefully selected a number of assessments that meet a variety of needs. But an assessment is only useful if you’re going to put action behind it. Assessments work best when they’re interpreted by a certified professional and backed by executive coaching. If you plan to have a meeting, hand out assessment results to your team, and leave it there, you won’t get the best results. In fact, assessments are merely a starting point. Assessments point to areas of opportunity for growth and improvement. That’s why we offer assessments in tandem with coaching. We want you to see results.

Develop strong leaders to lead teams to positive business outcomes.

The Birkman assessment illuminates greater self-awareness for your leaders, helping them to understand themselves so they can guide others more effectively.

Birkman helps leaders create a connected culture – up, down, and across the team – so employees stay united around a common purpose from any location they open their laptops. Additionally, leaders will learn how to reduce stress by using personality insights to proactively address employee needs, helping to head off stress before it starts.  But if employees do drift into stress behaviors, the Birkman tools equip leaders to shift them back to a more productive frame of mind.

Birkman also gives leaders awareness of how differing workstyles might lead to unhealthy conflict that affects the team dynamic. Armed with data and tailored personality insights, leaders can help employees constructively assess a conflict and resolve it diplomatically.

Assessing Emotional Intelligence in Leaders and Improving Organizational Culture

The Emotional Quotient Inventory 2.0 (EQ-i 2.0) and the EQ-360 were developed to assess emotional-social intelligence. The EQ-i 2.0 is a self-report measure designed to measure a number of constructs related to EI. The EQ 360 assessment provides a more in-depth analysis by having those who work with the person being assessed provide information as well. When observer ratings are compared with the results of an EQ-i 2.0 self-report a more detailed profile emerges. Both assessments measure emotional intelligence (EI) using one total score, five composite scores, and 15 specific subscale scores. Item-level results are also presented.

The EQ-i 2.0 model of emotional intelligence is based on fifteen competencies grouped into five composites: Self-Perception, Self-Expression, Interpersonal, Decision Making and Stress Management. The fifteen competencies, taken together, provide a total EQ.

  • Leadership development

In addition, you get access to real data, enabling you to target and nurture talent and support your succession plan.

It draws new talent, retains current employees, inspires teams’ achievement, and enhances business performance. The MBTI will provide you with critical data that will help you to improve communication, develop effective leadership, and elevate group dynamics, driving people to commit to and succeed in your organization.
  • Equip your organization to thrive with an effective change management process. Developing resilience to the uncertainty of change is one of the greatest challenges facing organizations today.

DISC Assessment- Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness

Leadership, Sales, Conflict, and Agility

DiSC gives people a quick and intuitive way to understand themselves and others using DiSC—a simple yet powerful model that describes four basic behavioral styles: D, i, S, and C (Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientiousness).

Everyone is a blend of all four DiSC styles—usually, one, two, or even three styles stand out. Each person has a unique behavioral profile with different styles and priorities—no one style is better or worse than the next. We believe that these differences in style can be extremely valuable. Once you assess these differences and harness their value, better workplace communication AND healthier organizations become possible.

Ideal for:

  • Developing exceptional leaders.
  • Cultivating an effective, higher-performing sales team.
  • Helping your team members to effectively respond to uncomfortable and unavoidable challenges of workplace conflict.
  • Teaching your team members to read the emotional and interpersonal needs of a situation and respond accordingly.
