Creating... offers various assessment tools
to reach specific ends. We believe assessment tools are useful starting
points to help individuals, teams and organizations increase awareness
of potential strengths, liabilities and opportunities for growth. Creating...
offers the following assessment tools:
- Myers Brigg Type Indicator (MBTI)
- MBTI stands for Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and is an instrument for
determining personality types. It was developed by Isabel Briggs-Myers
and is based on the theories of Swiss Psychiatrist, Carl G. Jung. The
MBTI is a 93-item instrument that reports preferences that indicate
differences in people that result from where we prefer to focus our
attention and get energy, the way we prefer to take in information,
the way we prefer to make decisions and how we orient ourselves to the
external world. The MBTI instrument is one of the most trusted and widely
used assessments in the world for understanding individual differences
and uncovering new ways to work and interact with others.
- Team Management Profile (TMP) - Understanding work
preferences is a critical component in developing individual, team and
organizational performance. Team Management Systems' Team Management
Profile Questionnaire is a 60-item assessment focused on enhancing understanding
of an individual's approaches to work.
- Mayer, Salovey, Caruso, Emotional Intelligence Test (MSCEIT)
- Emotional Intelligence is the ability to perceive emotions, to access
and generate emotions so as to assist thought, to understand emotions
and emotional knowledge, and to reflectively regulate emotions so as
to promote emotional and intellectual growth. (Mayer & Salovey,
1997) The MSCEIT consists of 141 items that yield a total emotional
intelligence score, two Area scores, four Branch scores and eight Task
level scores. This test has been normed and attains reliability and
validity. There is extensive data on the importance of highly effective
leaders augmenting their cognitive abilities with their emotional abilities.
This test is a true ability test rather than a less valid self-report
measure of emotional intelligence.
- Team Performance Profile (TPP) - For high-performance
in teams, ongoing assessment is a requirement. The Team Performance
Profile Questionnaire and resulting Profile are tools developed to support
- Linking Skills Profile: Projectivity - Extensive
interviews with teams and team leaders throughout the world have highlighted
the common elements responsible for integrating and coordinating teams
into a coherent 'whole'. Team Management Systems identifies these elements
as Linking Skills.
- Quotient of Opportunities & Obstacles (QO2) -
The Opportunities-Obstacles Profile is a unique instrument measuring
people's inherent approach to risk. It assesses the balance of energy
they are likely to put into seeing the opportunities or seeing the obstacles.
- Kolb's Learning Styles - Multiple Intelligence (MI)
theory states that there are at least seven different ways of learning
anything, and therefore there are "seven intelligences."
- Thomas Kilmann Conflict Mode Instrument - The Thomas-Kilmann
Conflict Mode Instrument is designed to assess an individual's behavior
in conflict situations.
- Core Qualities (Daniel Ofman) - This system provides
managers with insight into the motivations of their employees and is
particularly valuable in dealing with difficult or incompatible personality
