Pathfinder Growth Potentials offers a wide selection of assessments. This catalog is rated as the gold standard of emotional intelligence and personality assessments.
All participants in The Entrepreneur's Advantage program - both private and group - take The Entrepreneur's Advantage assessment. The client receives a link to their assessment, and takes it online in one 20-30 minute sitting. Every client receives their report, and if you are a private client, we will go into detail analyzing your results during our first coaching session. If you are a member of the group program, you will receive your report, and then during our first group coaching call, I will go over a generic report while you follow along with your report.
Clients who enroll in the ADAPT: For College Success program take the EQ-i 2.0 For Higher Education assessment. This assessment has been designed to specifically address the unique issues that 17-24 year olds face.
All life coaching clients of Pathfinder take the EQ-i 2.0 assessment. This lays a strong foundation for our work together. The client is sent a link to their assessment, and then it takes only 20-30 minutes to complete the assessment. Once the client clicks "complete," Pathfinder receives notification and I then download your report.
During our Discovery session, we go over your report, and as we co-create our coaching relationship and you identify your goals for coaching, we weave the EQ-i 2.0 results into our strategy. You will receive a copy of your report, which contains a detailed explanation of each of the 15 EQ competencies.
The model shows what the EQ-i 2.0 covers:
Here is a listing of the EQ-i 2.0 assessments we offer:
For the Workplace
The Individual/Workplace Report is designed for use in a wide variety of coaching and development situations and work settings. It focuses on the impact of emotional intelligence at work and offers suggestions for working with colleagues, supervisors and clients. In recruiting, this report is useful when using scores to guide the selection of follow-up interview questions, and in identifying potential training and development opportunities. It is an analytical and specific approach to finding the right employees.
The Leadership Report provides an in-depth look at emotional intelligence strengths and weaknesses through the lens of leadership. It does this by correlating emotional intelligence competencies with leadership performance in four key dimensions: Authenticity, Coaching, Insight and Innovation. These leadership dimensions were identified from research conducted on 221 leaders who took the EQ-i 2.0 and who also responded to a leadership questionnaire. The Leadership Report contains the same EQ-i parameters as the Workplace Report, plus the following features:
Competency pages with an interpretation of the client's leadership and organization impact.
An executive summary page that showcases the client's three highest and three lowest emotional intelligence skills.
A leadership potential page.
A leadership derailer page.
A leadership bar that highlights how the client's scores fared in comparison to other leaders.
Current leadership topics on managing conflict, achieving workplace-life balance and leading multi-generational teams.
The Group Report combines the EQ-i 2.0 scores of individuals in a manner that allows interpretations to be made at the group or team level. Because the EQ-i 2.0 score is needed for interpretation, all participants included in a Group Report must have previously completed the EQ-i 2.0 assessment and had a Workplace or Leadership Report generated for them.
An overview of group results is presented in the Group Report that identifies group strengths as well as the areas where the group as a whole is in need of improvement. Furthermore, the Group Report discusses the organizational implications of a group's emotional intelligence score and recommends strategies for action to further develop the group's potential.
The EQ360. In the workplace, the EQ360 assessment is a way of assessing a person's performance from a variety of perspectives:
the individual (self-report)
the individual's manager
the individual's direct reports
the individual's peers
other - anyone else such as clients
The EQ360 allows individuals to anonymously assess the same person, on the same things, based on their relationships and interaction with the person. An EQ360 can impact business results by providing feedback to employees in order for them to increase their effectiveness.
For the Individual
The Entrepreneur's Advantage is a cutting-edge research-based tool that provides clients with the knowledge they need to succeed as an entrepreneur. The difference between entrepreneurial success and failure is how you behave as an entrepreneur - whether you are starting a business, growing a business, transitioning from a conventional career, developing an encore career, or investing in a business. The Entrepreneru's Advantage provides you with:
- A review of key family experiences that affect your entrepreneurial perspective.
- Seventeen behavior success factors which you can learn to utilize.
- Activities and tools to help you develop the skills you need to be a successful entrepreneur.
The EQ-i 2.0 is the same assessment as the Workplace report, however the difference is in the interpretation and strategy building focus we place on your results. We look at your report through the lens of personal growth.
The EQ-i 2.0 for Higher Education is similar to the EQ-i 2.0 Individual assessment, but is designed for students aged 17-24 who are in high school or college.
Many students who were on the honor roll in high school get to college and fall behind. They feel that college is not for them and drop out. In reality, it is not their intellectual ability that holds them back, it's their fears - their fear of being away from home and friends for the first time, the heavy workload they experience, the social changes they will experience, and so on.
All of these fears are rooted in a person's emotional intelligence skills. For example, if a student is low in self-esteem, they will not have the confidence to be on their own. This can eventually manifest itself in a number of ways - from poor grades, to a decrease in health, etc.
This assessment and report lays the valuable groundwork for an effective coaching relationship, and the student walks away truly believing in themself and their ability to achieve their dreams. It is the first step in the Success In College program.
The EQ-i Youth Version is based on the original EQ-i for adults. The EQ-i:YV™ measures the level of emotional and social functioning in children and adolescents. As a strength based assessment, this product highlights areas of positive functioning as well as areas for development. It can be used by psychologists, school counselors, social workers, and psychiatrists to identify an individual's strengths and weaknesses in order to help that individual develop the skills needed for academic, personal, and social success.
In addition to Emotional Intelligence assessments, Pathfinder also offers the Pearman Personality Integrator.
The Pearman Personality Integrator explores the complexities of personality patterns. The Pearman is based on understanding an individual’s personality at multiple levels. From how someone interacts with the external or internal world, to how they take in information and make decisions, and the combination of those individual pieces (i.e., mental functions), the Pearman assesses the fundamental components of what makes up an individual’s personality type.
The Pearman assessment provides the freedom of representing personality along a continuum and does not require choosing a preference for one personality type over another.
The Pearman Personality Integrator has two versions: Workplace and Leadership. The difference is that the Workplace report is viewed through the lens of how an individual functions at work, and the Leadership report is viewed through the lens of the individual as a leader.
