Hogan Leadership Forecast Series: Potential, Challenge, and Values
The Hogan Leadership Series are development-focused reports. Each report offers information regarding the characteristics, competencies, and values that underlie how a leader approaches work, leadership, and interaction with others in the workplace.
- Potential: The Hogan Leadership Potential Report provides executives and managers with an in-depth evaluation of seven identified areas of competencies and behaviors.
- Challenge: The Hogan Leadership Challenge Report measures behavioral tendencies that can be obstacles to career success. These “derailers,” which surface after extended amounts of time or during times of stress and heavy workloads, can interfere with the ability to build and lead high-performing teams.
- Values: Hogan Leadership Values Report identifies ten core values. The values that show up above 70 are that person’s core values and goals, and are the activities that he or she enjoys and that give meaning to life. This is one of the very few corporate assessments that provides feedback on values that can fundamentally build healthy cultures.
