You personal coaching or training and development program may involve the use of one or more self and 360 degree assessments.
Assessments provide insight as a starting point for better understanding your unique obstacles and existing strengths across several key dimensions including:
- Capacity to "be" happy and loving, peaceful and focused in any situation
- Leadership and emotional intelligence
- Self awareness and self confidence
- Follow through and commitment
- Communication and influence
- Problem solving, decision making and engaging your innate creativity
- Stress, fear and anxiety management
- Capacity and resilience for change
- Conflict management and responding to challenging situations
- Teamwork, collaboration and the impact of your behaviour on others
In addition to our own proprietary assessments, we use several of the premier emotional intelligence and leadership assessment available today including:
The Enneagram is an ancient model that has been forwarded by modern research that explores our core drives, challenges and motives through nine different dimensions. The enneagram helps you recognize the difference between healthy and unhealthy, productive and unproductive behaviours, patterns, coping mechanisms and belief systems. We use this framework and assessment to help accelerate your development and bring clear attention to aspects that you may not even be aware of yet are working in the background to support or sabotage you.
The EQ Self Assessment
The EQ-i 2.0®, based on over 20 years of research, is the premier scientific measure of emotional intelligence today. It measures and benchmarks your performance against 15 key EQ skills and competencies that have been proven to contribute to success in both professional and personal pursuits.

The EQ 360
The EQ-360 combines a self-report with a multi-rater assessment (which may include Managers, Peers, Subordinates, Clients, Friends, Family and Others) to provide a complete 360-degree and potentially three dimensional overview of an individual’s present emotional and social functioning. This assessment also offers participants a chance to provide written feedback for the person being assessed. Click here for a sample report.
The EQ Leadership Assessment
The EQ-i Leadership report examines your results against four key dimensions of leadership: Authenticity, Insight, Coaching and Innovation. Click here for a sample report.
The EQ Group Assessment
Used as a roll-up report for individuals who have taken the EQ-i, the EQ-i Group Report provides an overall picture of EQ functioning across teams, groups or an entire organization while maintaining the confidentiality of individuals. This report provides insight into overall areas of strength and also provides an indication of overall areas that may require specific development and focus. This report can also indicate trends and movement of specific EQ factors and is therefore an excellent way of measuring the success of specific learning and development programs or initiatives over time.

MBTI Personality Type Assessment
Personality type is a distinct measure from emotional intelligence. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) describes your preferences for interacting with others, gathering information, making decisions and organizing their lives. This assessment can help you make better business, career and personal decisions by recognizing the inherent strengths and growth edges of your personality preferences and creating opportunities for transformational change.

Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) Self and 360
The Kouzes and Posner Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) building on three decades of ongoing research affirms: that leadership is a practice that can be taught and learned by anyone. Effective leadership is not an inborn skill available to a select few. Rather it is a set of observable behaviors that, with deliberate practice, can help everyone be more effective and make more of a positive difference in the workplace, in the community and in the world.
Through the 5 practices that are assessed you will gain deep insight into how you see yourself as a leader, how others view you, and what specific actions you can take to improve your effectiveness. Click here for a sample report.
“You were born complete and have always been complete. You have never been, and will never be, a problem to be fixed or a gap that needs to be filled. Your life experience has simply been about adding to your completeness and learning to discern what works and what does not work for you.
We begin the exploration of any self or 360 assessment with these key principles as a foundation. Then acknowledging where you are today we ask you to explore the key question: What do I truly want and how will this allow me to grow even further?”
