Hogan Assessments

PCL is the UK’s most experienced Hogan trainer and was the first to launch the Hogan assessment suite here almost 20 years ago. Grounded in more than a century of science and underpinned by comprehensive industry research, Hogan assessments measure: normal personality (Hogan Personality Inventory); derailment characteristics (Hogan Development Survey); core values (Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory); and cognitive reasoning ability (Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory).

Individually, these research-based questionnaires offer sharp-focused assessment from four key perspectives. Combined, they provide unique depth of personality and cognitive reasoning assessment that has strong implications for performance, retention, organisational “fit” and leadership effectiveness.

Hogan assessments have been used to reduce attrition and increase productivity by helping organisations to recruit the right people, develop key talent, and evaluate leadership potential.

PCL has worked closely with the Hogan founders and developed a wealth of data on these instruments over the past 20 years. Research includes an analysis of derailment personality characteristics called A Decade of the Dark Side.

Assessment Types

Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI)

The HPI describes the ‘bright side’ of personality; the characteristics that other people see when we are at our best. Assessing bright side personality provides critical understanding of how people perform and lead, as well as their potential for success.

Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI)

The MVPI describes the ‘inside’ of personality; the self that you know. It assists career decisions by identifying the values and motives that are most important to the individual and can define the job type, team climate or corporate culture in which they are most likely to flourish.

Hogan Development Survey (HDS)

The HDS assesses the ‘dark side’ of personality; the characteristics that lie behind the social mask, that can ‘derail’ opportunities for success. Assessing dark side characteristics means performance risks can be identified and addressed before they become an issue.

Hogan Business Reasoning Inventory (HBRI)

The HBRI evaluates a person’s ability to solve problems and make business decisions. It is the first measure of reasoning ability based on a theory of intelligence and is designed to predict real-world performance. Understanding an individual’s reasoning style provides insight into problem-solving style and helps identify areas for development.

Hogan Development Survey Course @ PCL Offices
Nov 8 all-day

Based on research into management derailment, the Hogan Development Survey (HDS) identifies 11 patterns of dysfunctional interpersonal leadership behaviour that become exaggerated when individuals are under pressure and are difficult to detect in interviews. These ‘dark side’ tendencies erode trust, loyalty and enthusiasm and are of particular concern in relation to supervisory, managerial and leadership roles.

This one-day course is designed for those who will be delivering in-depth interpretation and feedback on the HDS. The emphasis is on practical activities that guide delegates through HDS interpretation, feedback, and report writing. Attendance at this course along with the HDS Advanced Course can lead to eligibility to be entered on to the British Psychological Society’s Register of Qualifications in Test Use.

Hogan Personality Inventory Course @ PCL Offices
Nov 10 all-day

The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) was the first of a distinctive new generation of personality questionnaires shaped by job performance research. The HPI raises the bar for personality assessment from mere description of candidates to prediction of their job performance. It is the first normal range personality questionnaire based on the five-factor model of personality designed specifically for occupational assessment.

This one-day course is designed for those who will be delivering in-depth interpretation and feedback on the HPI. The overall emphasis is on practical activities that guide delegates through Hogan interpretation, feedback, and report writing. Attendance at this course can lead to eligibility to be entered on to the British Psychological Society’s Register of Qualifications in Test Use.
