Our associates are certified to administer and interpret many of the world’s most preferred assessment instruments. Read more about Leadership Assessments to learn more. Three of our favorites are below.

Tracom Social Styles ®

Leaders who understand how to connect with individuals in ways that resonate with their values, communication styles and needs are better equipped to keep their teams engaged and inspired to achieve. Research shows the impact SOCIAL STYLE has on leadership performance including:

  • 81% of managers trained in SOCIAL STYLE say it makes them more effective as a manager and coach
  • Managers with high SOCIAL STYLE skills are 27% better at managing conflict

The SOCIAL STYLE Model teaches people to identify the preferences of others, understand your own preferences and modify your behavior so that interactions are more productive, obtain alignment more easily and reduce frictional tension produced by different styles.

Hogan Assessments ®

Hogan assessments measure normal personality characteristics, career derailment risks, core value drivers, cognitive style, and decision-making.

People can often see what you do and how you do it. What they cannot see, but infer, is Why You Do It – the personality characteristics that impact behavior. The Hogan Potential and Challenge assessments measure reputation, how others see you.

Hogan assessments help leaders by facilitating strategic self-awareness. By understanding their underlying work style traits, core values, and derailment risks that may impact behavior and consequently others, the leader can manage and change his/her behavior to increase workplace success.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator ® (MBTI)

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator® assessment, knowledge of personality type, is used to make people more effective in many organizations throughout the world. Type provides a framework for understanding individual differences and provides a dynamic model of individual development.

When you understand your type preferences, you can approach your own work in a manner that best suits your style, including: how you manage your time, problem solving, best approaches for decision making, and dealing with stress.

Knowledge of type can help you better understand how to adapt your type to interact better with others, develop new skills, understand your participation in teams, and cope with change in the workplace.
