Management Assessments are very important steps we take to
results. We consider where you are, where you are going, and how you are
going to get there when selecting which Management
Assessments are right for you.
There are many
types of self-assessments—behavioral
style, values, and thinking (cognitive) processes.
The behavioral styles tell us
we act. The values tell us why we act—our drivers. And, the
thinking (cognitive) processes tell us what we perceive about the world around us. All
three help us understand ourselves better and provide ways for us to increase
our performance and be more successful. We are certified on all the assessments we use,
been validated with extensive testing. Take a moment to scan through
your options below and see where you might like to begin.
Research has shown that people tend to be attracted to
and influenced by people whose behavior styles are similar to their own.
Understanding your behavioral style and those of others will help you be more
effective in communicating with your co-workers, clients, and managers.
This is an excellent tool for sales people who want to be more influential
with their customers. It also is a great tool for managers to use with
new employees. It quickly allows a manager to zone in on the work style
of a new hire and determine how to best give feedback and
delegate assignments. This extra edge helps managers motivate their
staff to achieve peak performance.
The assessment takes between ten to fifteen minutes to
compete. When finished, you'll receive a 20-page report that
reflects your natural behavioral style and your behavioral style at
work. You'll learn the extent to which these two styles are either
align or conflict and why you may either be relaxed or stressed in your
work environment. Additionally, you'll receive a
downloadable workbook to help you analyze your report and create an action
plan for success.
You can choose to purchase this assessment and
complete the workbook on your own. Alternatively, you can request a one-hour debrief at an
additional fee. To learn more, please contact

drivers in your life? What is your passion? It will be quite a
revelation when you understand how just one or two values affect your
motivation and ultimately your personal and job satisfaction. Once you are clear on this, you can make better career and personal
choices. As a bonus, understanding and appreciating others' values can
