Assessments and Surveys
In order to help you discover “where you need to be,” it's best to start with “where you are.” Some of this can be done through conversation, but the use of proven, research-based tools to assess where an individual or team is at is extremely beneficial. We also can create basic anonymous surveys via SurveyMonkey for work with community or organizational groups.
DISC Profile Assessments For in-depth work with individual clients and organizations, we use the behavior and management inventories focusing on the DISC profile. These inventories help you examine four dimensions of normal behavior: how you respond to challenges or problems; how you influence others to your point of view; how you respond to the pace of your environment; and how you respond to rules and procedures set by others.
Each of us functions at various levels in all four domains, but our behaviors tend to be observable more often in one of the four quadrants- D,I,S, or C. Many times we try to communicate the way we see the world, not taking into consideration the way the other person does.
So, someone who is extroverted (one who thinks out loud, formulates their argument or discussion as they speak) asks an introvert (one who likes to think about things before expressing it) for a decision, and expects them to give an answer “on the spot.” The introvert wants to think it over first- the extrovert thinks the person “can’t make decisions,” but in reality the introvert just needs a little more lead time to make the decision.
Another way this plays out is we tend to be either more task oriented or more people oriented. In other words, we would rather either doing something or we’d rather be with someone. Understanding this can help align people and tasks in working groups.
We work closely with you to review the results of the report, and help you determine next steps in your personal and professional development. Click on the links for a DISC flyer or a copy of John's report as an example of the layout and valuable information.

Testimonial: "That is probably one of the most thorough assessments I have ever seen."

With executive and leadership teams, we sometimes will also use Patrick Lencioni's Team Assessment from the Table Group, which measures the effectiveness and health of an organizational culture.
