The Hogan Assessment Systems Leadership Forecast Series

HoganLogoMain_0As part of Executive Assessments, McDermott Associates uses the Hogan Leadership Forecast Series, which consists of three online assessments:

The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) is a measure of an individual’s day-to-day operating style and used to predict job performance. The HPI evaluates personality characteristics relative to getting along with and leading others. The HPI provides powerful information about a manager’s strengths and development needs and can be used for:

  • Selection – Predicts success in jobs where interpersonal qualities affect performance and lead to job success.
  • Individual Assessment, Development Planning and Coaching –Reveals important features of a person’s interactional style, identifying critical development opportunities.
  • Promotion and Succession Planning – Identifies persons who deserve special consideration for advancement in an organization.

The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) evaluates the characteristic ways in which a person responds to increasing pressure, stress, or insecurity at work and how that person impacts others in these situations. This unique tool identifies career-derailing behavioral patterns that can interfere with the ability to build a cohesive and high-performing team and can be used for:

  • Coaching and Development – Provides clear and explicit information regarding those aspects of a person’s interpersonal performance that need extra attention.
  • High Level Position Selection – The estimate of failure rates for CEO’s in corporate America is 60%, possibly because senior managers are chosen on the basis of an interview. Skillful interview skills may hide many flaws that can be identified with the HDS.

The Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI) describes the core values and goals that ultimately drive a leader’s behavior, aspirations and expectations.  What managers value will determine how they will lead, including the kind of environment they may create and the rewards they will likely provide to others. The MVPI can be used to evaluate:

  • Compatibility with Organizational Culture – Matches a job candidate person to an organizational culture
  • Leadership Environment One Might Create – Typically, people who value leadership roles have at least average scores on the MVPI Power scale: they dislike environments where they have little control over their fate or the fate of the business for which they are responsible.
