Insights4Results is certified in a variety of assessments that are part of our tool box we consider when exploring your needs to find the best solution for your organization or achievement of your individual goal. Each Assessment is described and sample reports are included for your review and consideration.
We offer customized 360 degree assessments individualized to fit your organizational culture, competencies, and strategy.
We work with organizations to customize their key leadership competencies to assure their supervisors, managers and leaders are receiving feedback on the competencies that are most important to the organization's current and future success.
We are a licensed provider of the "EQ 360" assessments, which provide a more in-depth analysis of Emotional Intelligence. When observer ratings are compared with the results of an EQ-i 2.0 self-report, a more complete 360 degree profile emerges. The EQ 360 identifies key manager and/or employee strengths that can be leveraged to the benefit of the organization, as well as impediments to high performance that could be improved.
Clear Alignment with EQ-i 2.0
One important change that was requested was a better alignment between the EQ-i and the EQ 360. In the new EQ 360, each of the 133 assessment items has a corresponding and equivalent item in the EQ-i 2.0. In addition, the EQ 360 reports are now set up in such a way that participants can view the results for each item across all rater groups; this even includes their self-report results. This improved alignment creates higher face validity because the results can be much more easily understood and reports better interpreted. And, of course, the new EQ-i 2.0 model also applies to EQ 360.
EQ 360 Report
The new EQ 360 Report includes not only the feedback of all the raters, but also the feedback of the participant - all in one consolidated report in both and client and coach's version. This saves the participant time and effort in working through multiple reports.

We are a certified provider of the Hogan assessments which offers information regarding the characteristics, competencies, and values that underlie how a leader approaches work, leadership, and interaction with others in the workplace.
Take Leadership to the Next Level!
Leadership matters. Organizations depend on leaders to make important tactical decisions, manage changing market trends, and set strategic vision. When competent leadership prevails, people and companies prosper. Bad leadership is almost always accompanied by disengaged workers, corporate corruption, and, eventually, business failure. HoganLead gives leaders a clear understanding of their performance capabilities, challenges, and core drivers, and provides them the strategic self-awareness that makes good leaders great.
Leadership Forecast Series
The Hogan Leadership Forecast Series includes four development-focused reports. Based on Hogan’s trademark assessments, the Hogan Personality Inventory, Hogan Development Survey, and Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory, each report offers information regarding the characteristics, competencies, and values that underlie how a leader approaches work, leadership, and interaction with others in the workplace.
Potential -- The Potential Report outlines day-to-day leadership style, describes behaviors typically associated with that style, leadership competencies, and comprehensive development recommendations.
Challenge -- The Challenge Report describes how leaders are likely to interpret the world and treat subordinates while under stress and pressure. The Challenge Report predicts career-derailing behaviors that interfere with the ability to build a cohesive and high-performing team.
Values -- The Values Report explores the core values and goals that ultimately drive a leader's behavior, aspirations, and expectations about life. What people value determines how they will lead; this determines the kind of environment a leader will create and the sort of organizational culture in which the person will do the best work.
Coaching -- The Coaching Report is a self-guided, comprehensive development-planning tool for individual leadership development. The Coaching Report integrates the information from the Potential, Challenge, and Values reports into a five-step planning process. By completing this process, a leader produces a powerful, personal development plan designed to foster professional growth.
Hogan EQ Report
The Hogan EQ Report assesses emotional intelligence, the ability to identify and manage your own and others' emotions. Based on the Hogan Personality Inventory and Hogan Development Survey, the easy-to-understand report provides an overall EQ score, as well as scores and feedback for six emotional competencies. The report also includes a summary of likely behaviors, score pros and cons, and discussion points.
HoganLead is the product of decades of research, theory, and market experience used to identify the qualities of top leaders. Use this knowledge to identify the next generation of great leaders in your ranks. Unfortunately, as many as two-thirds of the people currently in leadership positions will fail, leaving companies with damaged reputations, disheartened employees, and downed revenues. Failed leadership is often the product of flawed interpersonal behaviors that prevent leaders from forming and maintaining a productive team. We identify dysfunctional tendencies that can be mitigated through awareness and coaching.
Plan for your future success!
The key to succession management is building a leadership team whose abilities and aspirations match the company’s future needs. HoganLead evaluates potential and fosters the growth necessary to guarantee future success.
The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership® Created by James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner in the early 1980s and first identified in their internationally best-selling book, The Leadership Challenge, The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership approaches leadership as a measurable, learnable, and teachable set of behaviors. After conducting hundreds of interviews, reviewing thousands of case studies, and analyzing more than two million survey questionnaires to understand those times when leaders performed at their personal best, there emerged five practices common to making extraordinary things happen.
The Five Practices are:
The Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) instrument is an essential tool to help you gain perspective into how you see yourself as a leader, how others view you, and what actions you can take to improve your use of The Five Practices, which research has demonstrated, year after year, make for more effective leaders.
The LPI measures the frequency of 30 specific leadership behaviors on a 10-point scale, with six behavioral statements for each of The Five Practices.

HeartMath Institute developed this comprehensive assessment tool to help people more fully understand how twelve aspects of their life (work, relationships, finances, social support, etc.) affect their levels of stress and well-being. To establish a reference baseline, the assessment was normed on over 1500 individuals. Taking the assessment will help you pinpoint how you rank in each of the twelve aspects and how these factors influence your stress and well-being. It may prove valuable in helping you and your provider (coach, mentor, counselor, etc.) decide on specific aspects of your life that you might wish to set improvement goals for.
You can complete the assessment and I will contact you to share your results. We can set up an action plan on how to manage any areas of Stress that might be interfering with your health and wellbeing. There will also be an opportunity to re-take the assessment 6 weeks later to compare your results and note your progress in any of the 12 areas that you identified to work on.
The Thinking Pattern Profile is built on a methodology that directly measures actual talent. It measures competency quickly and easily and accurately. And it is quietly being used by some of the best companies to close the performance gap.
It shows what a person pays attention to as they make decisions --- and also what they don't pay attention to. Therefore it provides a helpful indicator of the sources of a person's strengths and vulnerabilities.
Why the Thinking Pattern Profile:
Thoughts direct actions, and actions lead to results and feelings. New results come from new actions which are generated because of new thinking.
Thus the understanding of one's thinking style and process is the key to harnessing this power to achieve continuous improvement and excellent results. The Thinking Pattern Profile provides this understanding as no other instrument can.
What the Thinking Pattern Profile Measures:
Because it measures the pattern of decision-making which the person uses when processing information about the world and themselves, the Thinking Pattern Profile empowers both individuals and groups to identify strengths and blocks relating to the:
people with whom they must work,
tasks they are to perform,
environment in which they work, and
inner capacities involving confidence and self-esteem
In short, the Thinking Pattern Profile™ system measures the capacity, clarity, and balance that individuals and groups have regarding people, tasks, systems and themselves.
