What's in it for me?

With your personal HoganLEAD results, you will receive specific advice on how to optimize your performance and your ability to establish and sustain relationships. These recommendations will help you to shape the future success of the company.

In order to articulate effective and useful recommendations for you, the questionnaires measure how your personality influences your activities at work. Your “autopilot” mode will be described and thereby the type of work which seems easy for you and your likely behaviour when under pressure and stress. This knowledge will help make you aware of your strengths, which you can maintain to be successful and to develop alternatives to behaviour which is not useful or may even be destructive. The aim is to expand the repertoire of different behaviours and to target them towards even greater achievements.

The three Hogan questionnaires measure various facets for this purpose:

1. The HPI (Hogan Personality Inventory) describes your strengths. The results will provide you with information on your ability to handle stress, your results orientation, your interaction and learning styles, your development choices and your problem solving strategies. (You can see an example report by clicking here.)

2. The HDS (Hogan Development Survey) indicates risks in your behavior that could cause trouble in your relationships with others and restrict your productivity or career potential. (You can see an example report by clicking here.)

3. The MVPI (Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory) describes your personal values system and your identity. The results will emphasize, e.g. if the values driving a person are aligned with their role and the organization. (You can see an example report by clicking here.)

The results aim to enhance your strategic self-awareness. Your strengths (HPI) exist only in combination with your behavioral risks (HDS) – the two sides of the coin that determine gold, silver or bronze performance. It may also show that your identity (MVPI) does not always correlate with the way you come across to others. In most professions, this comparison between identity and impact is at least as important as technical competence. This is the very skill that is developed during coaching. However, this awareness isn’t only important when embarking on a career but, together with strategic self-awareness, has to be reinforced and developed, as it is the only way you will be able to manage changes in your working life.

On the basis of these dimensions it can be easy to predict which workplace behaviours are usually shown across various situations (1) and their influence on success. Furthermore additional information will be gained through observing potential counter-productive behaviours in situations under stress and pressure (2) and through your individual thinking patterns and values (3). The conclusion of these three perspectives may provide you with comprehensive advice on your “autopilot” behaviour and whether it helps or hinders meeting demands and satisfying personal needs. The “autopilot” per se is neither good nor bad. The assessment in daily life arises out of comparison with others and the confrontation of requirements.

The key to durable professional success and coping competently with the everyday challenges of the workplace is your own strategic self-awareness. This is precisely what HoganLEAD focuses on to strengthen your awareness and expand your knowledge.
