Improve performance and gain competitive edge

The ability to assess your people is an important part of creating a baseline of data on which to build a suitable learning and development programme for individuals and teams. We review the crowded psychometric market for the latest assessments available, and choose those that are robust, highly researched, and fit with our purpose, vision and values.

The three tools we specialise in are the Mayer Salovey Caruso Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT),  the Strengths Profile Strengths Assessment and the i4 Neuroleader Leadership 360.

We are also Master Trainers for both the MSCEIT and the Strengths Profile and offer public accreditation courses, as well as internal accreditations and Train the Trainer programmes.

Emotional Intelligence – MSCEIT

Emotional intelligence is now seen as a critical tool in business. The World Economic Forum report into the Future of Jobs places Emotional Intelligence in the top ten skills required in the workplace in 2020.

Two decades of scientific and business research shows the value of emotional intelligence for leaders, sales people and anyone whose job involves influencing and engaging people.

This foundational skill underpins our capacity to work well with others, manage stress and make effective decisions, and we can practice and improve our EI, increasing individual and business performance.

By understanding the science behind emotional intelligence and how to accurately assess, predict and develop emotional intelligence, businesses can take a far more targeted approach to people development.

Strengths Profile Assessment

Leverage your strengths to unlock performance, energy and potential. Everyone has strengths and the potential to further develop them. Research shows that knowing and growing our strengths helps us feel energised and engaged. We learn faster, perform better and strive to do our best. Realising strengths and the energy that fuels them is a natural route to enhancing business outcomes.

The 2016 Gallup State of the Global Workforce report showed some amazing results from using strengths-based interventions on workgroup performance.  The survey covered 1.2 million employees in 22 organisations in seven industries and across 45 countries.  90% of the workgroups studied had performance increases such as sales, profits, engagement, turnover and safety.

Ultimately, the strengths-based management approach is shown to improve employee wellbeing and boost productivity in all areas. If you are keen to leverage this approach, the Strengths Profile Assessment can help you to maximise this opportunity and unlock the potential of individuals in your organisation.

i4 Neuroleader Leadership 360

Our understanding of the brain has changed dramatically in the past 20 years. Neuroscience is bringing new insights into how our brains work and the opportunity to better understand why and how people behave, make decisions and relate to others.

“…neuroscience looks at the structure and function of the human brain and nervous system. Neuroscience research draws on cellular and molecular biology, anatomy and physiology, human behaviour and cognition, and other disciplines, to tool out information about how the brain works at levels previously unrecognised.” Psychology Today

Leveraging detailed knowledge on how your brain is wired and how it processes information can be significant in the workplace to improve performance, collaboration, innovation, and boost agility. Understanding and using neuroscience is key to optimising the brain’s performance and potential if we want to lead ourselves and others to success in the 21st Century.

i4 Neuroleader assessment and development tools include personal leadership profiles, 360 feedback reports, team reports and a comprehensive workbook to further develop neuroleadership capabilities.
