Psychometric Assessments

Psychometric tools, assessments and feedback

We are offering all Fellows the opportunity to access a psychometric assessment and follow-up feedback session with a certified practitioner.

Psychometrics provide you with valuable insights to develop your leadership. You can:

  • gain a deeper understanding of yourself and your needs, motivations, and behaviours
  • recognise more fully how others may differ from you and the implications of this
  • acquire frameworks and approaches that you can use to adapt and develop your communication and behaviour.

As well as psychometric assessments, we also offer Fellows one-to-one coaching and 360 feedback coaching.

Our offer

We are initially offering Fellows the opportunity to choose one of the following assessments and arrange a feedback session:

  • Myers Briggs Type Indicator
  • EQ-i 2.0
  • Strengthscope
  • Belbin Team Roles (for your whole research group)

As we monitor budgets, it may be possible for you to undertake further assessments. If you have already completed one assessment and wish to undertake another, please do contact us and we will do our best to arrange this for you.

Psychometric assessments available

For you as an individual

Online survey and assessment, personalised report and one-to-one feedback session at a time of your choosing.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is one of the most widely used psychometric tools in the world, helping people to identify their own personality preferences that influence how we interact and collaborate with others.

The insights which MBTI offers are especially useful to leaders, e.g. how you like to plan work and projects, how you communicate and take in information, your preferred way of giving and receiving feedback, your orientation towards decision-making, what you value in a team and working environment.

Crucially, MBTI also suggests ways in which others’ preferences can differ from, or even conflict with, our own. Recognising and respecting those differences can enable us to manage our working relationships more effectively and tackle misunderstandings before they become serious problems.

More information about MBTI can be found on the Myers Briggs Foundation website.

As you move in to leadership, your focus and challenges become far more about people than tasks. Emotional intelligence skills are critical for building relationships and teams, resolving conflict, solving problems, leading effectively, and building resilience.

The EQ-i 2.0 provides you with a detailed assessment of your areas of strength and potential areas for development. You will receive a comprehensive leadership report describing how your EQ competencies work together for effectiveness. It also provides suggested strategies for bringing your EQ competencies into balance for greater effectiveness.

The leadership report focuses on your leadership effectiveness in the context of emotional intelligence across five EQ composite areas:

  • self-perception
  • self-expression
  • interpersonal
  • decision making
  • stress management

The report also provides a detailed interpretation of how effectively you are using 15 EQ competencies and how, by balancing these competencies, you can significantly improve your well-being, workplace and leadership performance, interpersonal relationships and communication.

More information about the EQ-i 2.0 assessment can be found in this blog post on the MHS website.

People who use their strengths deliver better outcomes and generate greater value for those around them and their organisations. Identifying and then using our strengths makes us more confident, engaged with work, productive and able to build better relationships with colleagues.

Strengthscope® compiles 24 different strengths broken down into the four categories: emotional, relational, thinking, and execution. Your Strengthscope report will build your awareness of your unique strengths and how to optimise these. It will help you to learn:

  • What energises you most and how to stretch these to perform at your best
  • Which strengths may become counter-productive when not used effectively
  • What energises you least and which may impact your performance
  • Empowering strategies to help you take action to stretch yourself in areas of strength and reduce the impact of any performance risks
  • Positive, practical ways of working that will improve your confidence, motivation and success in any situation
  • How to strengthen relationships and work more effectively with people whose strengths are different from yours by allowing more honest and authentic conversations across all levels

More information about this tool can be found on the Strengthscope website.

For your research group

Based on the work of Dr Meredith Belbin, Belbin is one the world’s most well-known tools for improving team performance. It uses nine clusters of behaviours, each with strengths and weaknesses that contribute to the way a team operates.

Belbin provides a framework and vocabulary to constructively discuss teams and understand your contributions to the team. It will help you recognise areas of potential team tension because of overlaps or gaps in the team behaviours, as well turning areas of potential conflict due to opposing behaviours into complementarity that can become a team strength.

This assessment is available to you along with your research group and would include individual assessments and a workshop tailored to your group. The overall objective would be to help everyone to understand themselves and each other better, so everyone can contribute to the team in way that is constructive and valued, therefore boosting the individual and team performance.

More information about Belbin team roles can be found on the Belbin website.
