The Hogan Leadership Forecast Series
The Hogan Leadership Forecast series was developed by Dr. Robert Hogan in 1980 at the University of Tulsa in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Today it is used almost exclusively in succession planning and executive coaching.
Each section of the three part series — Potential, Challenge, and Value— identifies competencies, potential career derailers, and also internal values and motivation.
The Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI)
Ned Herrmann created the Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument in 1972 at the G.E. Learning Center. Today over 5 million business people in thousands of corporations throughout the world utilize this assessment to understand thinking preferences to improve teams and performance.
Once an individual or team has completed an HBDI profile, they will better understand their preference for logic, organization, interpersonal skills, and strategic thinking. The results help clients leverage their strengths, assess their challenges, and optimally manage their communication and leadership styles.
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator Step II (MBTI)
More than 60 years of research and development have demonstrated the reliability and validity of the MBTI. This tool allows professionals to understand their personality preferences with respect to energy source, information gathering, decision making, and lifestyle/work patterns.
There are no right or wrong answers on the MBTI and no assumed “right” way to be. Rather, the results offer profound insight into business professionals’ strengths and weaknesses, their impact on teams, leadership challenges, and paths to maximize personal and professional development.
Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQi)
The Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i®) is the first scientifically validated and most widely used Emotional Intelligence assessment in the world. Based on more than 20 years of research worldwide, the EQ-i examines an individual’s social and emotional strengths and weaknesses.
Initially based on the 20 years of research by Dr. Reuven Bar-On and completed by over 1 million people worldwide, the EQ-i® report is the premier measure of self-report social emotional intelligence. The assessment measures one’s self-reported potential to deal with daily environmental demands and pressures, and helps predict one’s success in both professional and personal pursuits. The EQ-i® takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. It is based on the most comprehensive theory of emotional intelligence to date and renders an overall EQ score as well as results from 5 composite scales and 15 subscales.
Respondents self-report on their life and workplace performance in 15 key areas of emotional skill that have been proven to contribute to proficiency in complex business activities such as conflict resolution and planning. By identifying the areas that need improvement, the client can immediately begin developing those areas. At the same time, areas where the client excels can be leveraged to their full potential to maximize effectiveness in daily tasks.
