Strong Interest Inventory®

It compares your interests and preferences to a normed group of 10,000 others, who have been happy and satisfied in their careers for at least 2 years. You receive a detailed report which shows your results from the STRONG, identifying careers that fit a person’s interests.

The Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument® (HBDI)

The HBDI is a 120-question survey that measures individual thinking preferences along four unique and distinct modes of thinking.  Inspired initially by Nobel Prize winning research, the HBDI has been completed by over 2.5 million individuals and is utilised in many of the world’s leading corporations.  Your HBDI Profile will provide insights into your thinking preferences and as a result, insights into how you approach communication, decision-making, and problem-solving, as well as how you typically shift your thinking style when under pressure.  Your results are provided at a prearranged individual or group debriefing session. This is a user-friendly individual and team development tool, accompanied by clear graphics and a comprehensive workbook.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI)

The MBTI is a self-report questionnaire designed to make Jung’s theory of psychological types understandable and useful in everyday life. It is one of the most widely used instruments for understanding personality differences and is widely used to understand people in terms of their decision-making styles, preferences for communication and work environments, as well as being an accessible and commonly used career development tool. oem software store

Life Styles Inventory™ (LSI)

By providing insights into strengths and areas for development, it empowers people to embark on their own journeys to being better at, and enjoy more, everything they do. It can be used as a spot check for CEOs, executives and leaders about how their behaviour is being perceived, for example by their board and direct reports; as well as being a powerful development tool for individuals, who want to delve deeper into themselves and make a significant personal shift, also serving to provide a common language for individuals, teams and organisations. The instrument is based on comprehensive, evidence-based research. For more information on the LSI, click here.
