360 Feedback & Psychometrics

Our tools are selected to deliver clear perspective and insights into individual, team, manager, and leader personality type, preferences and behaviours. Each tool utilises web-based questionnaires to support the understanding of personality preferences or behaviours, which are combined with debrief at individual and team level by one of our coaches or facilitators. 360 feedback tools provide powerful survey instruments suitable for all level roles. We can also help to combine these tools to derive complementary insights to drive behavioural change.

Insights Discovery

Insights Discovery uses a simple and accessible four colour model to understand an individual’s unique preferences. These preferences are measured based on responses to a short online evaluator. Insights Discovery has its roots in the work of Swiss psychologist Carl Jung. It is continually validated and refined to ensure it is always accurate and deeply insightful. Insights Discovery provides a deep perspective on an individual’s behavioural preferences and allows them to explore blind spots that may not always be apparent to them. The personality profile which Insights generates is clear, practical and accessible allowing participants to return to it many times.

Insights can be used to raise individual awareness, as part of a wider management development programme or as part of a team development programme. It can also be used to support senior level Executive Coaching.

Hpc is the largest licensee for Insights Discovery in Ireland and we have 10 licensed Facilitator practitioners on the hpc team.

360 Feedback

Through our unique partnership with Envisia Learning, hpc can provide you with access to a range of reliable and valid 360 surveys to suit your specific requirement. Authored by Dr Ken Nowack, a member of the Consortium for Research into Emotional Intelligence, the surveys allow feedback on a range of competencies aligned to the following roles:

  • Executive
  • Senior Manager
  • Middle Manager
  • First Line Manager
  • Specialist Role (no direct reports but significant people dependencies)

The 360 surveys are administered through a bespoke online system and full technical support is available to liaise with your IT department.

The reports can be customised to reflect your brand as well as your specific preferences for how the data is presented. The reports are debriefed and supported by our team of 14 Executive Coaches and Facilitators who are highly trained in the use of the tools.

Psychometric Assessments

Founded by Roger Holdsworth, Talent Q provides a range of Psychometric Assessments that support many of our Talent Development initiatives. Talent Q provide a range of integrated ability and personality assessments that allow you to identify and develop key talent in a targeted manner.

The ability assessments provide flexible norms to compare abilities and the personality assessments can be comfortably mapped to existing competency frameworks.

One of the advantages of the Talent Q suite is that they are dynamic. Dynamic (or Adaptive) tests adapt themselves to the answers that are given. At a basic level, if a participant provides a correct answer in response to one question, the system responds by following this with a more difficult question. Conversely, each time a participant provides an incorrect answer (or fail to answer within the time limit) their next question will be slightly easier in approach. In this way the test is able to hone in on the person’s ability level and focus itself appropriately. This means that participants don’t waste time answering questions which are either too easy, or too difficult for them. Dynamic testing enables us to pinpoint a person’s probable level more quickly than is the case with conventional tests, where all those who participant are served the same questions.

Excellent course - Very comprehensive - very accommodating and open. Very good facilitator
