Personal Assessments

Once in a while, we all need to stop and do a “spot check” to make sure our perceptions of ourselves are in line with the perceptions others have of us. There’s nothing more frustrating then plowing along in a certain direction thinking we have crowds behind us, only to turn around and see that we are alone because our intentions were misunderstood or we didn’t understand others. Even though, it isn’t always the easiest thing to do, it definitely is worthwhile to point the magnifying glass at ourselves once in awhile!

Employees searching for individual development can take advantage of the various self-assessments offered through this program

Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI), for supervisors only

Measures leadership behavior in terms of five practices: challenging the process, inspiring a shared vision, enabling others to act, modeling the way, and encouraging the heart.

Communication Style Evaluation, for all employees

Used to assess a person’s communication style in terms of perceived image, task management, approachability, empowerment of others, and conflict management.
