International Coach Institute - Conversations worth their weight in gold
Now the decision is yours, "the life which is unexamined
isn't worth living." ~ Plato
What is an Assessment?
An assessment is a diagnostic process that measures an individual's behaviors, motivators, attitudes,
or other selected qualities. In order to be valuable to
individuals and organizations, an
assessment must be accurate and objective.
In addition, it must meet scientific criteria,
as well as provide meaningful insight.
Why Assess?
Assessment gives organizations more than just data and information; it opens doors to strategic change and
helps measure progress. Assessment can lead to increased
self-awareness and inspire people to learn
and grow.
International Coach Institute uses research
based assessment tools to measure what is important
to people in the business world - addressing the
challenges of effective leadership, meaningful
communication, increased sales effectiveness,
and lasting change.
Our assessments reflect our philosophy and
values. They stand up to rigorous scientific
tests of quality, address real-world business
issues, and encourage the human spirit in a
respectful and meaningful way.
One of the most important assets for an organization
is the ability to manage change -- and for people
to remain healthy and authentic.
Assessment Types
Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
The MBTI instrument contains four separate indices. Each index reflects one of four basic preferences which, under Psychologist Carl Jung's theory, direct the use of perception and judgment. The preferences affect not only what people attend to in any given situation, but also how they draw conclusions about what they perceive.
Extraversion-Introversion (E-I)
The E-I index is designed to reflect whether a person is an extravert or an introvert in the sense intended by Jung. Jung regarded extraversion and introversion as "mutually complementary" attitudes whose differences "generate the tension that both the individual and society need for the maintenance of life."
Extraverts are oriented primarily toward the outer world; thus they tend to focus their perception and judgment on people and objects.
Introverts are oriented primarily toward the inner world; thus they tend to focus their perception and judgment upon concepts and ideas.
Sensing-Intuition (S-N)
The S-N index is designed to reflect a person's preference between two opposite ways of perceiving; one may rely primarily upon the process of sensing (S), which reports observable facts or happenings through one or more of the five senses; or one may rely upon the less obvious process of intuition (N), which reports meanings, relationships and/or possibilities that have been worked out beyond the reach of the conscious mind.
Thinking-Feeling (T-F)
The T-F index is designed to reflect a person's preference between two contrasting ways of judgment. A person may rely primarily through thinking (T) to decide impersonally on the basis of logical consequences, or a person may rely primarily on feelings (F) to decide primarily on the basis of personal or social values.
Judgment-Perception (J-P)
The J-P index is designed to describe the process a person uses primarily in dealing with the outer world, that is, with the extraverted part of life. A person who prefers judgment (J) has reported a preference for using a judgment process (either thinking or feeling) for dealing with the outer world. A person who prefers perception (P) has reported a preference for using a perceptive process (either S or N) for dealing with the outer world.
The Birkman Method® is a multi-dimensional assessment integrating behavioral, motivational, and occupational data. This business-focused assessment is developed from scientific methodology to enhance interpersonal and occupational success.
The Birkman Method, combined with a Certified Birkman Consultant, expands individuals' personal awareness, enabling them to shift their perspective and reveal new choices. This new-found self-enlightenment allows individuals to achieve clarity, eliminate self-imposed limitations, and enhance their self-belief so they can better utilize their own strengths, as well as the strengths of those around them. Thus, individuals are more productive, motivated, and proficient.
Emotional Intelligence (EQ)
Characteristics of the top 1% of performers is that they know themselves intimately and accurately Daniel Goleman

Retirement Options
There's a real need for Retirement Planning!
People plan for their financial future, but not necessarily their personal, work, leisure or even spiritual future in retirement. Research indicates that people plan more for a two-week vacation than they do for their retirement lives which can last 30 to 40 years! Yet, pre-retirees today say they want fulfillment and meaning in their latter years.
