I am a qualified Psychometric Assessor and hold a Diploma in Psychometric Testing from Cambridge Judge Business School. I am qualified to administer and interpret the Hogan, SHL OPQ, Korn Ferry Leadership Architect (KFLA) and DISC assessments. Each of them has their own merits and clients may have their own preferences.
The Hogan Leadership Forecast series consists of three flagship assessments: the Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI), the Hogan Development Survey (HDS) and the Motives, Values and Preferences Inventory (MVPI). Hogan assesses candidates from two perspectives. The HPI known as the “Bright Side” measures bright-side personality or normal personality, how people behave in day-to-day life when they are at their best. The HDS known as the “Dark Side” identifies personality-based derailers that can limit career potential. It measures how people behave when they are stressed and under pressure or bored or simply not paying sufficient attention to their behaviour. The HDS can help mitigate the negative personality characteristics that derail success in careers, relationships and life. The MVPI known as “The Inside” measures core values, goals and interests, the key drivers that determine career satisfaction. It identifies ideal jobs, positions and work environments.
The SHL Occupational Personality Questionnaire (OPQ) is one of the most widely used and respected measures of workplace behavioral styles in the world. The questionnaire helps organizations understand how aspects of an individual’s behavioral style will affect his or her performance at work. This insight is delivered using a range of business-relevant reports that help organizations identify the best hires. It measures 32 personality characteristics relevant to performance.
The Korn Ferry Leadership Architect (KFLA) tool is a 38-competency framework that allows organizations to identify competencies that are critical for achieving business goals. It provides a simple yet comprehensive approach to creating Individual Development Plans. Designed for 21st century leaders, the Korn Ferry assessment tool identifies critical skills needed for individual and organizational success.
The DISC Questionnaire defines the behavioural preferences, typology and motivations of a person. It describes the “natural style” of a person, independent from his or her environment and the ‘’adapted style” of the person, adapting to the needs of their professional environment.
