The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator(MBTI® Step I&II)



The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator(MBTI®) assessment is a psychometric questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. These preferences were extrapolated from the typological theories originated by Carl Gustav Jung, as published in his 1921 book Psychological Types. The original developers of the personality inventory were Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers. The MBTI is the personality assessment the most widely used in the world.


The Polaris® Global Leadership Competency Model and 360° Assessment Survey




The Polaris® Global Leadership Competency Model and 360° Assessment Survey are pioneering tools for assessing essential competencies for global leaders' success across cultural boundaries. The tools are designed to help develop current, or future, leaders with global responsibilities. The model provides a template for ideal performance, and the multi-rater instrument allows a global leader to solicit complex feedback. The process provides reliable feedback that identifies key global strengths for the participant to leverage, as well as possible developmental needs that, unaddressed, could derail the global leader.
