Here are some of the assessments that we use with our clients. If we’ve asked you take a specific test, please select it below to get started.
The WorkPlace Big Five Profile 4.0
Developing a career path is more than selecting a good job for a progressive company. Career planning involves a three step process. First, identify what career attributes you want for a career to provide. These attributes should be based on your personal strengths, interests and abilities. Second, identify careers in the form of specific job families that will allow you to use these attributes. Finally, make a decision that aims you toward preparation for a career that satisfies the largest number of your preferences.
This validated personality assessment from the Center for Applied Cognitive Studies provides vital information that we use for helping individuals make the right career choice.
The EQ-I 2.0
This validated assessment was designed by Multi-Health Systems. It’s 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 2.0 examines your social and emotional strengths and weaknesses.
The WorkPlace Motivators
This validated assessment uncovers your personal interests, attitudes, and values—the powerful motivating forces that drive behaviors. It’s a way to understand “what you really want.” It’s the “why” of what you do.
The talent insights report will increase the understanding of the individual’s talents. The report provides insight to three distinct areas: behavior, motivators and the integration of these. Understanding strengths and weaknesses in these areas will lead to the personal and professional development and a higher level of satisfaction in one’s work.
- Behaviors – The ability to help one interact effectively with people.
- Motivators – The why of one’s actions. What drives you to act.
- Integrating Behaviors and Motivators – The how and why of your actions.
This validated assessment analyzes behavioral styles; that is, your manner of doing things. Your behavior is a necessary and integral part of who you are. Some of it comes from “nature” (inherent), and some of it comes from “nurture” (your upbringing).
This report will measure four dimensions of normal behavior known as DISC:
- How you respond to problems and challenges
- How you influence others to your point of view
- How you respond to the pace of the environment
- How you respond to rules and procedures set by others
Core values are the essential and enduring tenets that you use while making the most important decisions in your business and in your life. Typically, you’ll have four guiding values and three supporting values that are timeless guiding principles. Core values require no external justification; they have intrinsic value and importance to those around them, inside and outside the organization.
This assessment will help in guiding you in critical decisions and relationships.
By applying the Denison Organizational Culture Survey, we’ll be able to benchmark your organizational culture scores against a global database and develop action plans to improve your current practices. This will deliver a complete cultural assessment of any specific team, group, division or department in your company.

Partnerships have a predetermined life expectancy. For most, the expectancy of the partnership is 10 years or less.
If you’re in a partnership, do you know the potential risks and rewards of the partnership? The high energy/low energy areas? This assessment should be done for all business partners, even if they are husband and wife, to determine the life expectancy for that partnership.
