Assessments

Psychometric Assessments can be used either to complement a leadership development process or in recruitment and selection. They provide a valid and reliable framework for an individual to understand their personality preferences and the behaviours that typically flow from this.

In our experience, when an individual starts to have a more accurate understanding of their own personality, behaviour and likely competency profile, it opens them up to a number of benefits. These include:

  • Actively participating in personal development opportunities
  • Receiving feedback from colleagues more positively
  • Being increasingly aware of and respecting the diverse perspectives and skills of their colleagues
  • Fully exploiting the benefits of their strengths 

The above changes usually lead to significant benefits in the areas of people management, team working, employee engagement and interpersonal relationships; all of which have been shown by research to be key drivers of organisational success.

Some of the more sophisticated tools are able to provide a measure against management and leadership competencies. We are able to administer, score, interpret and feedback the results of these assessments. 

We administer a wide range of approved personality assessments. Our current clients regularly use the following:

  • SHL OPQ32: Targets competencies and provides information on 32 personality characteristics. These are grouped into 3 areas: Relationship with people, thinking styles, feelings and emotions.
