Assessment Tools

Genos Emotional Intelligence (EI) Assessment for individuals and teams to get a reading, not about raw intelligence, but about how effectively their EI is perceived by themselves and those around them at work. The rating scales are on seven skills: 1. Emotional Self-Awareness, 2. Emotional Expression, 3. Emotional Awareness of others, 4. Emotional Reasoning, 5. Emotional Self-Management, 6. Emotional Management of Others, 7. Emotional Self-Control. Given your scores, different learning modules are offered. Unlike your IQ, EI can be increased with awareness and practice.

Myers-Briggs Type Instrument (MBTI) –The MBTI is the most trusted and widely used personality profile in the world. The MBTI identifies your individual preferences for processing information, and determines how you prefer to use perception and judgment. There is no hierarchy of right or wrong responses on the MBTI – only differences. The MBTI provides critical insights into the variety of way you make decisions, strategize, and access information.

The use of this tool for teams, moves beyond awareness and “tolerance” of differences, and focuses on leveraging those differences — to gain diversity in discussion, enhanced innovation, effectiveness in actions, and resulting in better decisions and strategies.

Polarity Assessment for Continuity and Transformation (PACT) – The PACT is a brand-new, on-line tool for 10-10,000 respondents that allows organizations to tap the power of  “unsolvable and chronic dilemmas” or polarities.  Traditional assessments are based on either/or thinking–one right answer.  Virtually all competencies and values are one-half of seemingly opposite, yet interdependent pairs requiring both/and thinking–no one right answer.  This tool creates useful maps of where the organization is and is not leveraging key polarities well and offers a process for taking right action. 

Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI) – The TKI assessment is the premier conflict management tool benefiting self-awareness, understanding and resolving conflict, management and supervisory training, as well as enhancing negotiation and communication. Whether your default conflict-handling mode is Avoiding, Accommodating, Compromising, Competing or Collaborating, de-briefing this assessment affords insights into, depending on your goal, which mode will offer the most satisfaction.

When used in a team setting, members gain appreciation for others’ preferred modes and how to best communicate with each teammate and operate as a group.
