Polarities Assessment
The concept of polarities is based on the principle that some problems are inherently unsolvable. Polarities are opposite values which cannot function well independently. Examples are, ‘care for others versus care for self,’ and ‘getting things done versus deepening your learning.’ Your goal is to get the best of both opposites or “poles” while avoiding the limits of each. Completing a Polarity Map allows you to see a more complete system at play represented by the relationship of the two opposing values. As a result of this mapping and coaching, you will have a better understanding of these two “poles” as a partnership, and will better balance this tension in your life and work.
(There is no vendor cost for this assessment.)


Leadership Circle Individual/Team 360 Assessment
The Leadership Circle Profile™ is a premier 360 assessment, and the only 360 degree competency assessment that provides focused competency feedback while revealing underlying assumptions that lead to a leader’s pattern of strengths and limitations. This solid assessment begins to reveal the complexity of an individual’s leadership, and is solidly based on Adult Development Theory. As a result, you will receive a more in-depth understanding of how your leadership shows up for others during times of productivity and flow, and times of stress.

MAP Assessment
The MAP instrument offers a comprehensive and customized model for understanding how people make different sense of their leadership roles, opportunities and conflict situations depending on their ‘adult stage of development.‘ The Map assessment is based on the Leadership Maturity Framework – nine ‘action logics’ of increasing complexity, each one more effective, insightful, and integrated than the previous one. The assessment requires an individual to complete sentences in several  topic areas, and uses the result to asses stage of adult maturity, or development. The final MAP report will help you understand your current leadership perspective, then will provide support to expand your leadership capacity by directing you to a slightly broader, and more complex perspective.  See Seven Transformations of Leadership referencing the Suzanne Cook-Greuter’s MAP assessment, in Harvard Business Review.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
The MBTI is a simple, well established assessment. This assessment helps people determine their preferences in four areas: extroversion/introversion, sensing/intuition, thinking/feeling, judging/perceiving.  If you have never taken the MBTI, this is a broad, overarching assessment, and a nice assessment to use as a group activity with a work team.

Enneagram
The Enneagram delineates nine basic personality types of human nature and their complex interrelationships. There are many subtypes and variations within the nine fundamental categories.  The Enneagram is also a symbol that maps out the ways in which the nine types are related to each other. This is a comprehensive personal development assessment. The assessment will help you better understand yourself, and your relationships, including work relationships.
