Assessments

Services

The assessments we offer are used extensively for leadership development, team building, career planning and management training. We are certified in and administer three different assessments.

1) STRENGTHSFINDER 2.0

StrengthsFinder 2.0 is an on-line assessment comprised of 177 questions that helps individuals discover their own unique talents. It was developed by Gallup scientists under the direction of Don O. Clifton, PhD. To date over 12 million people have taken the assessment. It takes less than an hour to complete and you are given 20 seconds to respond to each question, although most people usually answer them in far less time. There are no right or wrong answers. You will not have the ability to go back to change a previous response or fill in a skipped question. The assessment generates the following reports:

Strengths Insight and Action Planning Guide: The report is divided into two sections. Section I: Awareness- includes the top five themes and provides a personalized insight on your talents. Section II: Application- outlines ideas for action.

Theme Sequence Report: Lists all 34 themes in descending order of significance. Numbers one through five are the signature themes and are the most dominant talents; however, six through ten are also important as they will frequently manifest themselves in certain situations.

In addition to administering StrengthsFinder 2.0 we offer one on one and team coaching on how to effectively utilize Strengths in your career or business.

2) MYERS-BRIGGS TYPE INDICATOR

Created by Isabel Myers and Katharine Briggs-Myers the MBTI is based on the psychological type theory of personality developed by Swiss psychiatrist Carl G. Jung. The MBTI is the most recognized and widely used personality assessment tool in the world. The Step I assessment includes 93 questions designed to determine in which of the 16 personality type preferences a person falls. The Step II assessment includes an additional 51 questions that identifies the facets of a person’s personality within his or her particular preference. The assessment is available both on-line and in manual form. There are no right or wrong answers and no time limit for completing the assessment. The Step I assessment can be completed in about 30 minutes. If Step II is included it will take an additional 15 minutes to complete.

In addition to administering the MBTI assessment we offer one on one coaching as well as group training workshops where we explain the theory behind the MBTI and also discuss its development, history, the construct of the psychological type preferences and the proper uses and benefits of the MBTI.

3) ENERGY LEADERSHIP INDEX

Unlike most assessments that focus on an individual’s personality the ELI, which was developed by iPEC, is an attitudinal assessment. It measures a person’s energy level based on his or her attitude, or perception and perspective. The assessment consists of 84 questions structured around the seven levels of energy. It takes about 30 minutes to complete and generates two reports. The first is the Energy Stress Reaction that measures a person’s energy levels under stressful conditions. The second report is the Energetic Profile which identifies one’s energy profile under normal conditions.

In addition to administering the ELI assessment we offer a 90 minute debrief where we explain the basis of the ELI and also discuss its uses and benefits. It can serve as the foundation for one on one coaching.
