What makes your people tick? Do they see themselves as others see them? What are their personality preferences, and how do those preferences show up in their work and leadership? Giving your leaders a baseline awareness of themselves, how they are perceived by others, and their opportunities for growth can benefit their development significantly.
Using an open dialogue and a combination of psychometric assessment tools, such as Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (steps 1 and 2), EQ 360, Thomas Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI), and Talent Q, GP Strategies can help your people understand themselves more fully and have more success in your organization. Because we draw on a wide range of well-established and researched instruments, rather than being confined to a limited range of proprietary instruments, we can draw on proven, best-in-class tools to meet your needs. The assessments we offer typically include self-assessment using these tools in combination with 360 or feedback-gathering to complete the picture.
Some of our assessment programs include the following:
- Leading Today’s People—A robust leadership assessment that provides insight into an individual’s proficiency in 48 leadership behaviors, including feedback from up to five people the individual has led. The assessment uses a five-point scale and includes both top leadership areas and potential areas for development.
