For career coaching I utilize the Highlands Ability Battery, the most comprehensive tool I’ve ever seen relative to career planning. It gives clients so much clarity. You’ll develop insight into how you tick and what attributes a job needs to have for it to be a good fit for you. You’ll also learn what type of work environment will be most optimal for you. And finally, the report gives a number of suggestions of careers that may be a good fit based on your ability profile, and these suggestions are hyperlinked into the ONET Department of Labor database, which provides a perfect jumping off point for career research.
Leadership Circle Profile 360
A fantastic tool that helps you go beyond surface level issues, and gets quickly to the root cause of what may be affecting your leadership. To what extent are you emphasizing caution over creating results? Self-protection over productive engagement? Aggression over building alignment? These self-limiting styles focus on gaining the approval of others, protecting yourself, or getting results at the expense of others.
Ennegram RHETI version 2.5
One of the most trusted personality assessments on the market. This assessment provides you with a unique portrait, indicating the relative strengths and weaknesses of your overall personality. This assessment is particularly useful in helping you learn and understand what triggers you into non-productive behaviors, so that you become more adept at operating from a strong place of personal power, rather than fear based tendencies.
