The Amy Throw Group can perform and interpret a variety of development assessments to help clients understand their strengths and growth opportunities. These include:

THE FULL CIRCLE 7 ASSESSMENT

Amy created the Full Circle 7 program as a barometer for her clients to monitor their areas of strength as she sculpts away at what holds them back. This powerful process uncovers the zones of genius within each person and develops the seven key areas needed for the ultimate executive presence. Each of the seven areas contains three pillars that make up the whole executive self.

HOGAN ASSESSMENT:

The Hogan Assessment is a self-guided interpretation of individual strengths, values, and challenges. The report is a snapshot of interpersonal performance, organizational fit, and a primer for performance improvement and shifts in behavior. Grounded in more than three decades of validated research, Hogan assessments were the first to scientifically measure personality for business.

Considered a gold standard in executive development and coaching, The Hogan assessments holistically assess individuals’ personality and identify strengths and weaknesses, underlying values and motivators, and even career “derailers” and the proclaimed “dark side” of personality. This illustrates the comprehensive nature of Hogan Assessments and the value they can bring to individuals and organizations looking to better understand the self as well as current and potential employees.

Hogan assessments help predict how and why individuals are likely to behave in certain ways in a professional setting. This 3-pronged approach means Hogan assessments can ensure individuals and organizations gain key insights when engaging in employee development and recruitment. The results gleaned from these assessments help individuals to understand their own behavior traits, motivators and potential derailers better, as well as helping organizations optimize the fit between new candidates, their roles and the organizational culture.

Developed in 1987 by Drs. Joyce and Robert Hogan, Hogan leads the world in personality assessment and leadership development.

EXTENDED DISC®:

Extended DISC®  is a self-assessment that measures how an individual prefers to interact with others. It creates a common language and a self-awareness to better understand ourselves and others.

Participants become more aware that their success is determined in a very large part by how well we interact with other people. They learn how to effectively relate, communicate, influence and motivate others to create successful relationships with subordinates, customers, prospects, colleagues, managers, friends and family members.

Our clients use Extended DISC® with their employees to equip them with skills to modify their behavior to become more successful by:

  1. Understanding how people are different
  2. Developing confident self-awareness
  3. Learning to identify the styles of others
  4. Modifying behavior based on the other person’s style

* Extended DISC® is based on the work of Carl Jung and William Moulton Marston

CLIFTON STRENGTHS:

“What would happen if we studied what is right with people versus what is wrong with people?”  – Don Clifton 

This was the question that sparked Don Clifton’s foray into positive psychology and the study of strengths, resulting in Gallup’s Clifton Strengths Assessment. 

Grounded in more than 40 years of research, the assessment measures what Gallup calls strengths. People who focus on using their strengths are six times as likely to report being engaged in their jobs and three times as likely to report having an excellent quality of life.  

An organization that operates with a strengths-based culture at its core can create real organic growth. Because when you get the best out of your people, you get the best out of your business. It’s not a surprise that organizations with strengths-based cultures experience higher employee engagement, retention, productivity and performance. 

Organizations with strengths-based cultures succeed because: 

  • They engage their employees. 
  • They surround employees with managers who coach them  to maximize their potential. 

They provide an exceptional employee experience. Contact us  to start building your strengths-based culture today.  

THE ENERGY LEADERSHIP INDEX™:

Where Metrics Meet Mindset

As an individual, you view the world through filters based on your experiences, values, and assumptions — they either limit what you see (like tunnel vision) or expand it (like a prism). You’ve most likely unconsciously developed these filters throughout your whole life and they significantly impact how you perceive things. This ultimately affects how you show up in different situations and could even be holding you back from realizing the full potential in yourself, your life, and your career.

The Energy Leadership Index™ assessment (ELI) applies metrics to these filters and assess how they’re influencing the results you’re achieving. It’s an attitudinal assessment, not a personality-based one, and it puts a numerical value to the types of energy a person experiences and expresses.

It’s normal for people to cycle up and down the energetic spectrum as they experience life but it’s also important to remember we are a mix of different energy levels, never just ONE single level.

There is no “good” or “bad” energy per se, but each type has inherent advantages and disadvantages and can be consciously used to reach specific goals.

With the awareness and insights gained through ELI coaching debriefs,  you have the power to reshape your attitudes and worldviews as well as transform who you are.

INDIVIDUAL ASSESSMENTS:

The Maxwell Leadership Assessment

The Maxwell Leadership Assessment is an in-depth assessment that measures a person’s influence, based on the Maxwell 5 Levels of Leadership methodology. It assesses the individual according to 64 important factors using self-assessment, combined with anonymous feedback from supervisors, colleagues, direct reports, and others. Through this comprehensive 360-degree assessment, leaders accurately identify both their areas of strength and their opportunities for growth. This self-knowledge and team knowledge results in better teamwork, increased confidence, and more targeted leadership development.

COMPANY ASSESSMENTS:

John Maxwell Leadership Assessments

The John Maxwell Company’s assessment resources are designed to function as one of the first steps of leadership and personal development. They equip individuals with knowledge about themselves, so that they understand both their strengths and their weaknesses. On the road map of success, self-assessment determines a person’s specific starting point. Only with that knowledge can leaders take the right steps to grow and move further along the path toward excellence.
