Build on Your Success through Emotional Intelligence!

While there are many contributors to success, one key factor is our level of Emotional Intelligence (EQi). While IQ plays an important part in our development and is a strong predictor of performance, only 1% is attributed to success. Research indicates, however, that strong Emotional Intelligence contributes almost 27% to your overall success.

As Certified Accreditors in the Reuven BarOnTM Emotional Intelligence Profiling, we can conduct a detailed analysis of your current level of Emotional Intelligence. We can also develop a complete profile of your entire team and highlight strengths and learning needs.

The good news is that our Emotional Intelligence can always be improved and developing your initial awareness of your strengths and development needs is a positive step forward.

Psychometric Self-Assessments

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) Profile. Learn more about your personal style

Learn more about you own personal preferences and your leadership style with the Myers Briggs (MBTI®) Assessment, created by Isabel Briggs Myers and her mother, Katharine Briggs, They developed their model and inventory around the ideas and theories of psychologist Carl Jung, a contemporary of Sigmund Freud and a leading exponent of Gestalt personality theory. The MBTI® indicator is based on 20 years of research and is one of the most widely-used psychometric profiles world-wide. It describes 16 types of people. Your "type" consists of four letters that represent your four preferences. It is not a test, therefore, there is no right or wrong style. The Indicator questions deal with the way you like to use your perception and judgment-the way you gather information and make decisions. There are four separate preference scales and two opposite preferences on each scale. The four scales describe where you like to focus your attention (E or I), the way you gather information (S or N), the way you make decisions (T or F), and how you deal with the outer world (J or P).

E (Extraversion) means that you probably relate more easily to the outer world of people and things than to the inner world of ideas. I (Introversion) means that you probably relate more easily to the inner world of ideas than to the outer world of people and things.
S (Sensing) means that you probably would rather work with known facts than look for possibilities and relationships. N (iNtuition) means that you probably would rather look for possibilities and relationships than work with known facts.
T (Thinking) means that you probably base your judgments more on impersonal analysis and logic than on personal values. F (Feeling) means that you probably base your judgments more on personal values than on impersonal analysis and logic.
J (Judging) means that you probably like a planned, decided, orderly way of life better than a flexible, spontaneous way. P (Perceiving) means that you probably like a flexible, spontaneous way of life better than a planned, decided orderly way.

What can the Myers-Briggs (MBTI) tool be used for?

Developing Self Awareness: Having knowledge of our preference type develops our self awareness and an understanding of the differing personalities of those around us. We learn to recognise different styles in each person and develop a greater tolerance for different preferences and ways of working. It encourages us to focus positively on our strengths and understand development needs.

Building Strong Relationships: Knowing your MBTI type and that of others in your life can help you appreciate and improve the quality of relationships with your colleagues, boss and direct reports, as well as family, friends and partners.

Five additional global factors are also measured: Extraversion, Anxiety, Tough-Mindedness, Independence, and Self-Control. The 16PF® administration time is approximately 35 - 40 minutes.

What benefits can the 16PF® bring?

It allows you

  • Plan for precise work and career performance objectives.
  • Assess your management style.
  • Provide effective training for career development.
Psychometric testing allows individuals to gain further insight into their own strengths and weaknesses, and also about those of the team around them. This promotes more effective working relationships and improves team performance. As Fiona Dent, Ashridge Management School's Director of Executive Education, states,"Introducing people to an issue and to different ways of approaching it can have a real impact on interactions in the workplace."

Coaching at its core is about awareness and responsibility. Individuals can learn better, manage relationships better, be better team members and deliver better performance.
