ASSESSMENTS

We are certified and utilize a variety of assessments which will enhance your team and leadership performance.

DISC
Our assessment system gives you instant access to a customized DISC profile report that will give you deep insights into your personality style along with practical tips on how to leverage your strengths, connect more quickly with others and be more productive. Plus, you will get to see your personality graphs in detail that measure your natural basic personality style (the real you) as well as your adapted environmental personality style that you exhibit in your environment (what others tend to see). Our DISC profiles are different, because they are refreshingly positive. So, you can rest assured that the feedback you receive will be helpful and practical.




Myers Briggs Type Indicator
Helping an individual understand their personality type is the first step to personal and professional growth. The MBTI® assessment helps individuals understand their strengths, their preferred working styles, and ultimately helps them see their potential. Used individually to provide self-awareness and clarity of purpose, the MBTI assessment also helps create a better understanding and appreciation between team members and colleagues – enabling them to work better together.

Work Personality Indicator
The Work Personality Index® assessment provides a clear framework for understanding the impact of personality on job performance. It helps you identify key motivators and behaviours – essential for hiring the right people, developing employees and supporting great leaders.

Psychometrics 360°
The Psychometrics 360 assessment provides straightforward and intuitive multi-source feedback to help leaders quickly identify their strengths and developmental needs. The clarity of the Psychometrics 360 report lets leaders easily recognize key themes in the feedback from others and take actionable steps f
