Explore Our Assessments
Our diverse collection of assessments can uncover a candidate’s or employee’s unique gifts, resiliencies, motivators and leadership potential, paving the way to matching the right candidate with the right job. And, those same assessments can be used through the employee’s lifecycle as insights into ways to on-board, engage, improve performance and communication, develop corporate culture and motivate your teams.
We have five core assessment sciences — all are available in 47 languages — (Behaviours/DISC, Motivators/Driving Forces, Personal Skills, Acumen, and EQ). They can be used independently or combined to create a more wholistic view of your candidates and employees. As a minimum, we recommend DISC and Driving Forces as the two foundational tools to help predict the success of new hires. Including Driving Forces with DISC dramatically increases the validity and predictability of the tools for hiring and development. Continuing to layer on other assessments beyond these two foundational tools will continue to provide deeper insights for hiring and development, while increasing predictability.
Measured in four dimensions of behaviour — dominance, influence, steadiness, and compliance — DISC measures a person’s action preferences, revealing how an individual will behave and communicate, and identifies the type of work they will enjoy performing.
Discover what motivates and engages a person by examining six unique motivators and 12 Driving Forces — knowledge, utility, surroundings, others, power, and methodologies. When an individual’s Key Motivators/Driving Forces align with their job, their team, and their organization, they will be more engaged and productive over the long- term.
Soft Skills Competencies
Examines 25 unique personal skills from conflict management to conceptual thinking, based on key research around critical skills required in organizations today. Soft Skills identifies strengths and weaknesses and is a powerful tool for recruitment, coaching, mentoring, and development.
The Acumen Capacity Index (ACI) report measures how a person thinks or processes information. The ACI report is based on a science called axiology. ACI helps organizations understand how their candidate/leader naturally approaches problem-solving. This tool is primarily recommended for leadership roles or for determining talent potential.
Emotional Intelligence EQ
Emotional intelligence is the ability to sense, understand and effectively apply the power of acumen of emotions to facilitate higher levels of collaboration and productivity within organizations. The EQ assessment uses five factors to measure an individual’s emotional quotient (EQ).
Combined Assessment Reports
All assessments can be combined to create a more wholistic view of an individual's strengths and areas of opportunity. DISC/Behaviours and Driving Forces are our two foundational tools. From there, depending upon our work, we can continue to layer tools for deeper insights.
Organizational Development Surveys
Our customizable on-line surveys are developed to assess an organization’s services, leadership, work environment, policies, incentives and practices. They are used as a vital diagnostic tool to determine where improvement and realignment are needed in order to grow the business, achieve employee and customer satisfaction and attract and retain top-notch talent. Completing a survey is fast and easy and can be done anywhere, anytime.
Personal effectiveness within each key position is crucial to the ongoing success of an organization. 360 surveys allow respondents to provide valuable feedback regarding the effectiveness of another individual’s performance. The results can then be used as a tool to enhance and develop the individual.
"We are a software start-up that used Lori for talent acquisition. In a start-up you can’t afford to bring in the wrong people; you can’t afford to have them quit six months down the road or have to let them go. Lori’s magic lies in helping companies get the right people in the right roles, who work well together as a team. She used the TriMetrix assessment tool to evaluate a shortlist of candidates and it worked wonders. Lori is great at distilling down the assessment report to what you need to know. She put it in layman’s terms and then took that information to help us drive compatible work to the right team member. It helped with team chemistry, with communications and it leveraged people’s strengths. I’ve been working with Lori for 20 years and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and the team at Focus Insights."
