Myers-Briggs Type Indicator
Perhaps the most well-known and widely used instrument of its kind, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI) makes the theory of psychological type understandable and useful in people’s lives.
Based on the original research of Carl Jung, and expanded upon by Isabel Myers and Katharine Briggs in the 1940s, MBTI sorts people’s personality and behavior into 16 possible psychological types. By knowing one’s type, people can understand themselves better, as well as improve how they communicate and listen to others.
Team Management System
Drs. Charles Margerison and Dick McCann wanted to know why some teams were highly successful while others with similar experience, skills and abilities failed. Their 25 years of research formed Team Management Systems® (TMS) which defines a set of team management styles and preferences, emphasizing how to integrate different styles together to form an effective team.
TMS is comprised of three models: the nine key success factors that form the basis of best teamwork, the preferences of how an individual works in a team, and the model of how one goes about their work in a group. Knowing these choices, as well as those of their team members, means better individual and group performance.
Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument
Conflict negatively affects productivity, decision-making and retention. By resolving communications conflicts more effectively, an organization or team can improve their results. The Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument® (TKI) is the world’s most used conflict management tool, outlining the five conflict-handling modes. Individuals get a pragmatic, situational approach to conflict resolution.
GENOS Emotional Intelligence
Emotional Intelligence (EI) is a set of skills which define how effectively an individual perceives, understands, and manages the feelings, emotions, and moods of themselves and of others. Improving one’s EI underpins the development of exceptional people.
The GENOS® program is based on the seven Being States of Emotional Intelligence. The tool differs from other EI systems because it measures how often an individual displays EI workplace behaviors.
All assessments have an additional fee, either for self-scoring booklets or online access. Prices vary depending upon number of participants and purchase of additional materials, such as instruction booklets.
