Personality  Testing

A reliable, validated tool with decades of data behind it, the 16pf® Questionnaire is one of the most widely recognized tools to assess personality. It can be a powerful means of gauging an individual’s work style and strengths, so you can separate the “great” from the “good” and help guide millennials into leadership positions to support strategic goals. The Report facilitates discussion with individuals on how their personal strengths can lead to career success. It is appropriate for use in selection and placement, individual and management development, leadership development and executive coaching, career and outplacement counselling, as well as counselling for personal development.
