LMC International has successfully used a number of assessment instruments in various leadership and talent development initiatives.
The Birkman assessment is a powerful development tool that is widely used by organizations.Results are generated through an interactive database that provides detailed information on leadership behaviours. The executive receives a comprehensive report that displays the information in a meaningful way utilizing graphs and data. A LMC coach reviews the results with the leader that allows them to understand how the results apply to their current role and work environment.
Facet5 measures the five fundamental building blocks of personality: Will, Energy, Affection, Control and Emotionality and provides a comprehensive description of personality and behaviour. It generates a number of practical and useful interpretive reports that are well suited for executive coaching, leadership development, coaching of high potentials and career management.
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a personality inventory that many organizations use to help individuals understand how their personality type influences their behaviour. By discovering their four-letter personality code, employees can identify and use their preferences to make career decisions and identify developmental needs. The MBTI has been used successfully in career coaching for high potentials and talent management.
Strong Interest Inventory
The Strong Interest Inventory (Strong) measures an individual's interests in a broad range of occupations, work activities and leisure activities. Using the Strong, employees can plan each step of their career path with one goal in mind: to match their interests with satisfying careers. It can help them make career decisions, seek more satisfying work within an organization or explore career options. In addition to career coaching for high potentials, organizations have used the Strong in talent development initiatives.
