Our ServicesResults-Focused Assessments
Assessments serve as the foundation for each Bright Arrow coaching engagement. Gaining unbiased insight into how you, your leaders, and teams “show up” in the world is integral to the formation of sound individual and team development goals. We assess from the outside in (team conditions and stakeholder 360 interviews) and the inside out (individual and team personality profiles, attitudinal assessments).
Hogan Executive and Team Assessments
Bright Arrow is a certified administrator of Hogan Assessments. The true value of talent development comes from strategic self-awareness. It’s vital that people understand the difference between the way they see themselves and the way they are seen by their peers, managers, and direct reports. Hogan Assessments provide critical insight into characteristics that not only facilitate an individual’s success, but, more importantly, can cause failure and career derailment.
While we have access to an entire suite of assessments to fit your needs, our clients most commonly benefit from the Leadership Forecast Series and the Team Report.
Learn more about the Leadership Forecast Series
Hogan assessments measure normal personality characteristics, career derailment risks, and core value drivers. The Hogan reports are designed to address a range of needs, from selection to high potential to executive-level development.
HPI — The Hogan Personality Inventory describes normal or bright side personality—qualities that describe how we relate to others when we are at our best.
HDS — The Hogan Development Survey describes the dark side of personality—qualities that emerge in times of increased stress and can disrupt relationships, damage reputations, and derail chances of success.
MVPI — The motives, Values and Preferences Inventory describes personality from the inside. The core goals, values, drivers and interests that determine what we desire and strive to attain as well as the work environment we are naturally inclined to create as leaders.
Learn more about the Team Report
The Team Report provides a personality-based understanding of a team’s strengths, weaknesses, values, and culture. Individuals will understand how their personalities can combine to support or hinder effectiveness.
In order to gain a comprehensive view of each team, we highly recommend pairing the Hogan Team Report (personality based, ‘inside view’) with the Team Diagnostic Survey (‘outside view’ – based on the 6 Team Conditions).
The 6 Team Conditions Team Diagnostic Survey (TDS)
Developed by Drs. Ruth Wageman, Richard Hackman, Erin Lehman at Harvard, the Team Diagnostic Survey (TDS) is an assessment built around the six team conditions that foster your team’s effectiveness and together account for 80% of the variance in how well a team performs.
Bright Arrow is a certified partner of 6 Team Conditions. Together with our TDS certified coaches your leaders will look beyond the relationships within the team and identify and address the conditions most limiting to their team’s effectiveness.
The Team Diagnostic Survey evaluates 6 Conditions for Team Effectiveness:
- knowledge & skill
- quality of group processes
- task performance
- member satisfaction
In analyzing these six conditions, you’ll come to understand:
- the team’s own understanding of the team’s purpose (you would be shocked at how seldom teams are in agreement)
- how supportive of a structure and context you’ve created as their leader
- if you have the right people on the team
- how well they’re working together toward their common purpose
- how well you (or someone you appoint) are coaching the team towards achieving their goals
We dig deep. For the stakeholder interview process, you identify 8-10 stakeholders. These should be a blend of peers, direct reports, superiors and even internal clients who have a stake in your success and ability to achieve your goals. Prior to the interview process this lists get reviewed and approved by your boss (if your organization is sponsoring the coaching engagement).
The stakeholder interview will provide us with a 12-20 page document of unedited feedback from your stakeholders, that will help us identify your strengths and 2-3 developmental themes for your coaching action plan.
Attitudinal Assessment – ELI
The Energy Leadership™ Index (ELI) assessment is the proprietary, research-backed assessment tool that takes something abstract, like the way a person views the world, and turns it into something tangible—a metric that you can see and feel and even reevaluate in the future. And it’s only available through an iPEC Certified Coach.
The ELI is an attitudinal assessment tool that captures how an individual currently perceives and approaches work and life.
With the awareness and insights gained through the ELI debrief, you will have the opportunity to reshape your attitude and worldview and “transform who you are”.
The ELI assessment can be given at the start of a coaching relationship and as a regular follow-up assessment to provide tangible, research-backed ROI data for any coaching engagement. The ELI will help you lead by example, with power, purpose, and passion.

The above tools and assessments are our most used resources when working with our clients.
