As a Certified Career Development Practitioner, I use a variety of assessments to help you determine work that is a good fit for you. Four are included in the Fundamentals Coaching Package and the Premium Coaching Package.
In addition, I offer 2 additional assessments - Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) and the Strong Interest Inventory®.
As both a MBTI® and Strong® certified practitioner, I can lead you through the process of both understanding your type (MBTI®) and career planning through the Strong®.
Personality type stems from the work of Carl Jung, a Swiss psychiatrist, who developed a theory on psychological types. Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) is a self-report questionnaire that is designed to make Jung's work on types understandable and useful in everyday life. MBTI® is the most widely used instrument for understanding normal personality differences.
Personality type enhances your understanding of yourself, your motivations, your natural strengths and your potential areas for growth.
How it can help you:
Because MBTI® explains basic patterns in human functions, personality type is used all over the world for a variety of purposes:
- organization development
- team building
- management and leadership training
- problem solving
- relationship counselling
- education and curriculum development
- academic counselling
- career development and exploration
Strong Interest Inventory®
The Strong Interest Inventory® assessment is one of the world’s most widely respected and frequently used career planning tools.
How it can help you:
The Strong® produces 4 reports to heighten an individual’s self awareness and provide a deeper understanding of work and life based on interests. The Strong®:
- Identifies your strongest career interests
- Empowers you to explore career possibilities – careers that will keep you engaged!
