Often times in the talent development field, we ask ourselves: how can we better assess the communicative and interaction practices within organizations in order to help and support them? One answer may be through using assessment tools. During this interactive workshop you will learn about several learning assessments from expert  practitioners offering their knowledge and experiences on assessment tools that can enhance training and development offerings. 

The assessments this workshop will cover include: 

  • The Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i)
  • Center for Creative Leadership Skillscope 360 
  • Pearman Personality Integrator Assessment
  • Positive Intelligence Saboteur Assessment

This professional development workshop provides:

  • A basic overview of several training and development assessment tools
  • Insight about when each one is most useful
  • Insight about when each one would not be useful or less effective
  • Hands on activities and examples of each assessment
