Assessment Tools

OrgPsych Assessment Tools

OrgPsych uses various tools to assist with Executive Coaching including MBTI, GENOS and LPTI.

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®)

OrgPsych Assessment ToolsThe Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) can be used for individual and team assessment as well as development.

‘A team that works well together is not a chance event. When team members understand their styles and those of others, they are likely to become more effective…. As a team member, you can use type preferences to better understand yourself and how you function in a group setting. Additionally, you can use your knowledge of psychological type to understand your team mates and the contributions they may make to the team.’
– Adapted from Sandra Krebs Hirsh.

The diversity of skills and abilities required to create an efficient and enjoyable work environment can be both valuable and frustrating. There is an intangible ingredient that brings order, enthusiasm and unique nuances to each team member. That intangible quality is our personality.

The MBTI® offers a framework and understanding of the intangible qualities that are reflected in our personality preferences for:

  • Being energised
  • Taking in information
  • Making decisions
  • Choosing to relate to the world

Our style of working is determined by our own individual interpretation of satisfactory results. Being willing to discover the differences in others, prepares the way to a more productive and harmonious work environment. This offers an opportunity to tap into strengths and best work together, minimising unnecessary conflict.

Managerial and Executive Wellbeing Survey (MEWS®)

The Managerial and Executive Wellbeing Survey (MEWS®) is a powerful measure of wellbeing designed exclusively for senior leaders and their teams.

The MEWS is presented in two broad sections: Working Well and Living Well.

Within each section, there are five or six wellbeing domains which capture the essence of executives’ physical, social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual wellbeing. The questions have been developed to target what matters most to executives and represent a comprehensive assessment of their wellbeing at the time of completion.

There are 126 questions in the MEWS and the whole survey takes 15-20 minutes to complete in a simple and easy online administration.

Upon completion, a Personal Wellbeing Report is generated by the respondent’s MEWS coach and then reviewed with the respondent in a confidential, one to one debrief.

During the debrief, respondents are guided on identifying their personal wellbeing priorities and how to take action on these. There is a strong emphasis on self-responsibility in the wellbeing debrief and coaching session, underpinned by support and encouragement from the coach.

Following the MEWS debrief, respondents are encouraged to log-in to the MEWS website where they will find resources, tools and tips tailored to the wellbeing domains and questions to help them in their pursuit of positive change in their wellbeing.
