Tools and Assessments

 

 

Tools and assessments are helpful for highlighting the different strengths and qualities of individuals and teams. Psychometric tests can be applied in the areas of recruitment, selection, training and coaching.

 

Our consultants  utilise a variety of tools and assessment instruments to enhance and facilitate the development of individuals and teams. These include:

 

 

Enneagram

 

The Enneagram is a set of nine distinct personality types, with all types present in all of us; although there is a dominant personality type in each individual.

 

On the personal front, the Enneagram provides us with a lens to examine the underlying drivers of our behaviours and to develop strategies for our optimum self.

 

At the organisational level, the Enneagram brings to light the kaleidoscope of different personalities at work and provides strategies on how to leverage each type.  The Enneagram allows teams to avoid creating stereotypes, to embrace the differences and create their own unique identity. By understanding an individual’s stress points and supporting each other’s personal development, teams will strive towards high performance leading to an overall impact on the organisation’s well-being.

 

 

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

 

The MBTI® tool is a personality questionnaire used to measure and describe people's preferences for how they like to get information, make decisions and orient their lives. Based on Carl Jung's theory of perception and judgment, the MBTI classifies people into 16 broad personality types.

 
The MBTI® tool provides a simple way of seeing how people are alike and how they differ. Individuals can use their MBTI® results to understand their preferred learning styles,
evaluate the fit between themselves and their jobs and better manage time and stress.

 

In teams, the MBTI® thus helps to improve teamwork and develop team effectiveness leading to a reduction in unproductive interpersonal and intra-organisational conflict.

 

DISC

 

DISC provides an insight into an individual style that helps to predict the likely trends of people’s behaviour. At its most basic level, DISC measures four factors of an individual’s behaviour: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance.

 

At another level, DISC enables the interpretation of the relationship between these dimensions. Using this approach, DISC can be used to describe a person’s general approach, including their motivations and dislikes, strengths and potential risks, and some other basic assumptions about other people.
