Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)®
Reliable, proven personality assessment that measures preferences for extraversion or introversion, sensing or intuition, thinking or feeling, and judging or perceiving. MBTI Step II is also available.
Reveals how an individual’s interpersonal needs can shape his or her interactions with others. When combined with the MBTI, you get a rich understanding of leadership preferences and behaviors.
The California Personality Inventory (CPI) consists of 260 questions that explore a range of personal and work-related characteristics. The resulting report(s) describe you in the way that others see you, making the CPI a reasonable substitute for a traditional 360-degree assessment.
The WISE (Women’s Inventory for Success Empowerment) Profile is a powerful evidence based self-report behavior inventory designed to measure career and leadership success factors. Administered online and taking approximately 30 minutes to complete, this unique tool is designed to be used by women as well as coaches, HR/OD professionals, managers, and leaders who support women’s professional development in order to better leverage the talents of women. The information obtained from the WISE Profile tool is highly valuable to help women understand their natural strengths and unique gifts, identify what is holding them back, potential areas of growth, and understand what they can do to move forward in a powerful and confident way in their careers. No matter what stage a woman is at in her career, this assessment will give her valuable insight into her competency level in five critical career success factors.
Genos Emotional Intelligence (EI)
Measuring seven dimensions of EI, this 20 minute online assessment is specifically designed for use in the workplace. Both the self-assessment and the multi-rater (360-degree) assessments have been thoroughly validated and benchmarked. Unlike some other EI assessments on the market, the Genos EI measures behaviors and competencies, not traits. Getting a baseline assessment helps to determine where EI development is needed. Repeating the assessment in 6 to 12 months provides a means for determining return on investment in training and coaching.
The Hogan suite of assessments helps businesses hire the right people, develop talented employees, build great leaders, and impact the bottom line. For individuals, discover and learn more about the bright side and the dark side of your personality in order to build on your strengths and uncover your potential career derailers.
Influence Style Indicator

Today’s workplace requires effective leaders to work across multiple boundaries and with different people to accomplish goals. Leaders need to be able to adapt their influence style to different target audiences.

Thomas Killman Indicator (TKI)
Excellent assessment for understanding an individual’s default style of handling interpersonal conflict. Useful in understanding team dynamics and interpersonal conflict.
Another widely-used assessment that looks at individual behavior in a specific situation or work environment. This shows up as an adapted behavioral style (as compared to natural style). The four quadrants of the model are Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Correctness.
This assessment is not a personality test, but the results reveal essential high performance traits or those that will hinder performance related to specific positions. It is useful in pre-employment screening, leadership development, and succession planning.
