Hogan Assessments:
The Science of Personality

The key to success in business is money and people. No matter how well you handle money, if you get the people part wrong, you will lose.”
~~ Robert Hogan

As a Hogan-certified coach, I will debrief your results with you and discuss the potential implications, (2) reflect with you on the information gained through the assessment experience, and (3) work with you to leverage that information to facilitate your ongoing development.

The core assessments measure normal personality characteristics, career derailment risks, core value drivers, cognitive style, and decision-making ability to provide insight and solutions for employee selection, development and coaching. Organizations using Hogan rely on the tools to improve quality of hire, facilitate individual development, and enhance team effectiveness. As the traits measured by the Hogan tools are particularly salient in leadership, the assessment suite is widely used for leadership development from middle management to the executive level. Scores on the Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI), Hogan Development Survey (HDS), and Motives, Values, Preferenc

es Inventory (MVPI) should be interpreted in light of the individual’s current job context and future goals. There is no such thing as an ideal score or personality profile.

Hogan assessments can be used for a variety of talent management initiatives, from pre-hire selection to executive-level development.

  • Predict job performance – Hire better people by measuring basic employability, work style, safety consciousness, and organizational fit.
  • Evaluate career derailers – identify and mitigate performance risks that can degrade leadership success, erode relationships, and damage professional reputation.
  • Identify potential – find and develop your organization’s next generation of top talent.
  • Leadership development – leverage the strategic self-awareness gained through Hogan’s assessment process with executive development and coaching.
  • Pair with 360° data and other performance indices – reveal the underlying characteristics and values that drive the behaviors identified in the 360° process.

” Intellectual honesty, rigorous commitment, and active truth-seeking are sine qua non to any self-awareness process.” ~~Anthony K. Tjan

A 360 Survey is a valuable tool for promoting self-awareness. It provides an opportunity to develop a key leadership skill, the mastery-of-self. When you get clarity on the talents, qualities and strengths other people value in you, then you can choose to showcase those and strengthen your impact. Furthermore, once you know and are able to notice in real time, your shortcomings or qualities that may derail your performance or relationships, then you have the power to choose  to make adjustments and alter the way other people perceive and react to you.

The results of a 360-Assessment reflect people’s perceptions – not necessarily TheTruth – but  a reality even if you don’t agree. The perceptions are out there. Perceptions impact the culture, relationships, and expectations at work. Usually, there are discrepancies between how you see yourself and how others see you, in both positive and negative directions. Understanding the gap through clear and compassionate debrief and coaching help to solidify the value of the 360-Assessment results.

My confidential, customized, hybrid -electronic and interview based-  360-Assessment is an opportunity for personal growth and renewed power to choose how you want to show up and what you might do differently to better manage your self and others.

You receive an original narrative report based upon interviews of your participants.



Stand still. The trees ahead and bushes beside you

Are not lost. Wherever you are is called Here,

And you must treat it as a powerful stranger,

Must ask permission to know it and be known.

The forest breathes. Listen. It answers,

I have made this place around you.

If you leave it, you may come back again, saying Here.

No two trees are the same to Raven.

No two branches are the same to Wren.

If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you,

You are surely lost. Stand Still. The forest knows

Where you are. You must let it find you.
