The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) describes the dark side of personality – qualities that emerge in times of increased strain and can disrupt relationships, damage reputations, and derail peoples’ chances of success. By assessing dark-side personality, you can recognize and mitigate performance risks before they become a problem.
These are measurable career derailers that may be blocking your advancement.
The HDS measures dark side personality along 11 scales. The following describe high scorers:

Excitable: moody, hard to please, and emotionally volatile
Skeptical: suspicious, sensitive to criticism, and expecting betrayal
Cautious: risk averse, resistant to change, and slow to make decisions
Reserved: aloof, uncommunicative, and indifferent to the feelings of others
Leisurely: overtly cooperative, but privately irritable, stubborn, and uncooperative
Bold: overly self-confident, arrogant, and entitled
Mischievous: charming, risk-taking, and excitement-seeking
Colorful: dramatic, attention-seeking, and interruptive
Imaginative: creative, but thinking and acting in unusual or eccentric ways
Diligent: meticulous, precise, hard to please, and micromanaging
Dutiful: eager to please and reluctant to act independently or against popular opinion

What is Executive Coaching?

“The essence of executive coaching is helping leaders get unstuck from their dilemmas and assisting them to transfer their learning into results for the organization.”

Executive coaching fosters self-discovery and performance improvement, with the goal being to increase the client’s managerial and leadership performance, emotional intelligence, and executive-level skills. Executive coaching develops the leadership skills of high-potential individuals, improves the odds that newly promoted managers will be successful, corrects behavioral problems at the management level, and helps leaders resolve interpersonal conflicts among employees by creating high-caliber, super rewarding, and extremely loyal company cultures. Executive coaching is for C-level executives, emerging leaders, entrepreneurs, or anyone who is ready to take their personal and professional lives to the next level.

Common Individual and Team Coaching Goals Include:

  • Successful transition to a leadership role
  • Creating a winning culture
  • Reducing employee turnover
  • Increasing employee motivation
  • Boosting sales figures and customer satisfaction scores
  • Developing and leading high performance teams
  • Creating a powerful executive presence
  • Boosting Emotional Intelligence and self awareness, perception and expression
  • Discovering new career paths and successful transition
  • Mastering public speaking and executive presentation
  • Building more productive relationships
