Assessment tools help accelerate personal and professional development through building self-awareness that helps people identify goals and target behaviors, and help organizations identify strengths, opportunities and blind spots among their talent and leadership development efforts.

Hogan Assessments

The Hogan Assessments are the only scientifically valid suite of assessments that measure the “outside” view of the “Bright Side” of personality, the “Dark Side” that leads to derailment and the internal “Inside” view of motives, values and preferences. The Hogan Personality Survey (HPI), the Hogan Development Survey (HDS) and the Motives Values Preferences Inventory (MVPI) can be utilized for leadership and personal development and talent acquisition. We offer customized group reports and other services to assist with talent development and succession management.

Our coaches and consultants have advanced certifications in interpretation and providing feedback on the assessment results. They are members of the Hogan Independent Consultants Network. Jayson Blair, our managing partner, is a member of the elite Hogan Coaches Network and has appeared, discussing “Coaching the Whole Person,” on Hogan’s The Science of Personality podcast.
