HOGAN Assessments

Why take a personality assessment?

The primary driver of human behavior is personality. A personality assessment is a great way to gain personal insight and insight into others around you, without any judgement.  All personalities are equal, but they are not the same, and an assessment can help us understand the differences and learn how to use them constructively.   An understanding of personality can result in improved leadership, better communication and enhanced teamwork.  

Why take the Hogan Assessment?

Only Hogan examines personality from multiple angles. By measuring the bright side (Hogan Personality Inventory – HPI), the dark side (Hogan Development Survey - HDS), and the inside of personality (Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory – MVPI); Hogan can provide a more holistic perspective of a person’s personality.  The Results of the Hogan assessments will help someone identify their everyday strengths and weaknesses (HPI), the behaviours that can damage their relationships or derail their career (HDS) and their values, goals and interests (MVPI).

Is the Hogan Assessment recognized?

Hogan has over 30 years of experience providing assessments solutions. One million Hogan personality assessments are processed every year and over 9 million people have completed the assessments.  The Hogan assessment tools are used in organizations of all sizes – from small firms to Fortune 500 global companies in diverse industries.  Hogan assessments have been validated by over 1200 validation studies and they have been translated into more than 45 languages.

Is the Hogan Assessment right for me?

The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) uses normal qualities that describe how we relate to others when we are at our best. If your goal is to develop stronger leaders, Hogan gives you valuable insight into how people work, how they lead, and how successful they will be.

The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) describes qualities that emerge in times of increased strain and that can disrupt relationships, damage reputations, and derail peoples’ chances of success. This can help you recognize and mitigate performance risks before they become a problem.

The Hogan Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI) describes personality from the inside – the core goals, values, drivers, and interests that determine what we desire and strive to attain. By assessing values, you can understand what motivates individuals to succeed.

All of this will be explained to you in simple to understand terms by you coach or training facilitator.
