Career Choices

We use the following assessment tests to assist a client with a career choice:

Myers Brings Type Indicator ® (MBTI®)

  • This assessment gives insight into how a person perceives the world and makes decisions. It looks into how someone interacts with others and gives insight into someone's strengths and weaknesses. This assessment helps in cases of team, leadership, conflict and stress management, as well as career planning. The results of this assessment allow a person to look at and improve their communication, work and learning environments.

Strong Interest Inventory ®

  • The Strong Interest Inventory ® is used as a career planning tool. It gives a person insight into what their interests or passions and gives an idea of the types of fields or jobs that a person might be interested in going in to. From this list a coach works with the clients to evaluate competency with this list which is a valuable starting place for someone working with a career coach.

Thomas-Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument (TKI)

  • The TKI assessment looks at a person's behaviors and attitudes in situations of conflict. It looks at people on two scales: assertiveness and cooperativeness. From where a person lands on each of these scales they are placed into one of five different styles of conflict-management, either competing, avoiding, compromising, collaborating or accommodating. 

Fundamental Interpersonal Relations Orientation TM (FIRO®)

  • This instrument looks at people's interpersonal needs and then how those needs influence their communication style and behavior. It takes into account how a person behaves towards others and then how they would like people to behave towards them. The results from this test gives insight into how they should change their own behavior and communication styles, as well as what others might need more of from them.

California Psychological Inventory TM (CPI TM)

  • The CPI is an assessment that helps improve a person's performance through understanding their characteristics, motivations and thinking styles. This test compares people to eighteen different competencies and evaluates them on their strengths and the areas they should work on developing better. The CPI assessment works well for those in leadership positions as it looks at the differences in a person's perceptions and the perceptions of those around them.
