Assessments

Assessments give you and your team insights into preferences, styles and strengths

Assessments give you and your team insights into preferences, styles and strengths. Those insights lead to greater awareness of how people operate and what to dial up or down.

 

For individuals, an assessment and debrief is a powerful way to take stock and then move forward. For a team they create greater team cohesion and understanding of differences.

DiSC: Five Behaviours of a Cohesive Team

Strengths

Discover your innate talents and then apply them. Find out what makes you unique and why it matters for your success and wellbeing. All too often we focus on our shortcomings. But we perform best when we work to our strengths.

 

A strengths-based approach is valuable for you personally and for teams. Great things happen when you focus on what’s right with people, instead of what’s wrong.

 

A Top 5 report will give you a detailed breakdown of your top five strengths out of 34. You can look at each one individually and also see how they work together.

Leadership

360 degree feedback is part of your leadership development. You’ll compare your assessment of your leadership with that of your team members, manager, and peers.

 

Are your perceptions in line with others? Where are you succeeding? What do you need to work on? What themes can you see emerging? These questions and more are answered by assessments and debrief sessions. They can be used as part of a leadership programme or as a stand-alone development exercise.
