Hogan Development Survey

The ‘Dark Side’ of personality – behind the social mask

Bosses that alienate colleagues and subordinates undermine the commitment and effectiveness of the workforce with inevitable consequences for productivity, retention and the bottom line. Based on research into management derailment, the Hogan Development Survey identifies 11 such patterns of dysfunctional interpersonal leadership behaviour. These ‘dark side’ tendencies erode trust, loyalty and enthusiasm and are of particular concern in relation to supervisory, managerial and leadership roles. The HDS measures eleven such flawed interpersonal styles that become exaggerated under pressure and are difficult to detect in interviews.

PCL is the UK’s most experienced Hogan Trainer. We have been delivering training verified by the British Psychological Society for more than 20 years and Hogan training for over 15 years.

Hogan Development Survey Uses

Management Development Programmes

Research indicates that for most people their line manager is a major source of stress. Most managers can improve their interpersonal effectiveness and HDS based development programmes help to reduce employee stress, improve staff morale, increase job satisfaction and retention and optimise the constructive influence of managers.

Coaching

For those in positions of responsibility, dysfunctional interpersonal skills are amongst the most frequent causes of failure. The HDS is highly effective in highlighting the areas appropriate to a coaching agenda. While for some individuals, group or team situations may be a suitable context for personal development, in many cases face-to-face HDS based coaching is more appropriate.

Advanced team building

The HDS takes team building to another level by addressing dysfunctional behaviours that threaten working relationships. Within teams that work in a confined physical or psychological space ‘dark side’ characteristics will upset team dynamics, add to stress and adversely affect performance. An appreciation of the stress reactions of other team members will help to reduce the impact of disruptive ‘dark side’ tendencies.

Management selection

High HDS scores pinpoint potential problem areas. From an actuarial point of view the total number of extreme HDS scores provides an indication of the possible risks associated with any appointment. At the later stages of the recruitment process HDS profiles help to focus on areas that can be fruitfully explored at interview and support more insightful interpretation of assessment centre observations.

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.

Hogan Development Survey Course @ PCL Offices

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.
