Sagacity Conference

Decision making impacts everything. It is the process through which we seek to optimise our futures. Over the past decade there have been worrying indications that our decision-making alchemy may be losing its potency. Our upcoming Sagacity Conference will bring together influential thought leaders whose writing and research contribute importantly to the ensuing debate.

Join us and contribute to the discussion.

Read about our personality-based approach to risk management in IOSH Magazine

We’re proud to be included in the March/April issue of IOSH magazine, where Geoff shares his insights on a personality-based approach to risk management (via the link below). The article covers how we can use personality assessment to facilitate a more flexible approach to risk management, maximising employee engagement, participation and trust, and includes case studies.

Cognitive diversity within teams and boardrooms

How are you different to Tom and Eli, your co-workers who have both been appointed to head up a new team within the sales division? We don’t mean differences such as gender, race and age (while incredibly important) – but risk personality. 

Geoff Trickey explores how the Risk Type Compass can assess cognitive diversity within teams and boardrooms.

Really great experience working with the team at Psychological Consultancy having just completed Hogan Training with them this week. If you are considering working with them in any way, I would highly recommend them if you are seeking a professional and personable service.

I've been working with the team at PCL since 2011, using the Hogan assessments for Leadership selection and development, and, more recently, the excellent ProfileMatch2 system. I often recommend this latter to my SME clients, as the system makes for an exceptionally high value, simple-to-use and accessible tool for those on a limited budget. I have always found the PCL team to be highly professional and knowledgeable, whilst also being friendly, kind and approachable. Many thanks to all at PCL for the excellent support over the years; much appreciated.

I worked with PCL when it came to Hogan Assessment Certification. These are trained psychologists, and though the Cert. Course is like 'drinking from a firehose' - working with PCL psychologists was such a relaxing and rewarding experience. They're very accommodating, helpful, and I highly recommend them.

I have just completed the one day on-line training for the Risk Type Compass (RTC). The programme was incredible insightful and stimulating – which was a lot down to the delivery style, the pace and structure provided by the trainer as well as the great material. She also highlighted so many other uses for it, leaving me keen to seek out opportunties to use it on individuals and groups, including executive teams who would benefit from being profiled collectively. I mostly work with executive search firms mainly in the FS market. We primarily offer Hogan to our clients when conducting assessments for their prospective employees and I am sure the RTC and / or other PCL tools could be used in combination now and more often. I consider it mainly down to the coaching style and the excellent materials provided by the trainer that I passed the exam , so thank you again PCL.

I enjoyed the Hogan training with PCL very much. I was a bit skeptical that an online training of such intensity would be realistic, but Louisa and Elliot were right professionals who not only took the time, but had the patience with us all. I appreciated the bits of extra time and and would highly recommend this training to anyone looking to get a comprehensive course!

I have been a client with PCL for four years after qualifying for the Hogan Assessments in 2017. I have found their approach, service and team to be very responsive and helpful. In particular, Elliot Phillips, who recently guided me through the Hogan 360 certification and order process. This level of service and quick response enables me to provide an excellent service to my clients, which is one of my core business values. I whole heartedly recommend working with PCL, they are a great team!

I participated in PCL's training to use their Risk Type Compass risk personality tool. It was fantastic and truly engaging training. I feel fully prepared and excited to start using the RTC in my work with clients. I'm also looking forward to returning for the advanced practitioner training in due course. Thanks again!
