There are hundreds of assessment tools available and while we are certified and experienced in many of them, we most frequently rely on a small number in our work with leaders and only use them where they clearly add value. Please contact us for more information on how these assessments can be used to help develop you or your team and on how they can be purchased.


Personal Drive Alert (PDA)

personal drive alert

The Personal Drive Alert (PDA) is your tool for better understanding personal drive through an exploration of self-concept, personal success factors, and historical feedback and reinforcement themes.

This instrument will help you identify beliefs and behaviors that impact your effectiveness.  The PDA measures what is commonly referred to as “drive”; the internal motivators that cause you to rely on a certain set of skills or abilities in order to achieve certain outcomes.  All of us have primary “drives” that influence how we operate.  By learning more about these drives we can more readily choose when to operate with a preferred drive style and when to choose another, less preferred drive.

Thomas-Kilmann Inventory


The Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI) is the world’s best-selling assessment for understanding how different conflict-handling styles affect interpersonal and group dynamics. It is a fast and powerful tool that can go beyond conflict management to support team building, leadership and coaching, and retention goals.


360° Leadership Assessment


We design custom 360° leadership assessments based on the leadership competencies that are most important to your organization’s long-term success.  After establishing these core competencies, we develop a set of 360° survey questions that are used to identify strengths to build on and opportunities for improvement, administer the questionnaire and review the results with individual leaders. These assessments form the context for our coaching relationships and Individual Development Plans.

It has also helped organizations of all sizes address needs that include team building, leadership and coaching, conflict management, career development and retention.
