Motivators are the drivers behind our behavior; what motivates our actions. An individual’s experiences, references, education and training tell us WHAT they can do. A behavioral assessment will tell us HOW they will do it. However, it is not until we know an individual’s motivators that we will understand WHY they do what they do. This assessment measures your responses in each of the six attitudes. The online report shows each of the six attitudes compared to the national average. You are provided with information on the WHY of your actions, which, when applied, can tremendously impact the satisfaction you get out of life and your job.
TTI Success Insights Personal Motivation and Engagement
By using the Personal Motivation and Engagement assessment, you will come to know and understand the attitudes that drive your actions and be better able to understand the causes of conflict in your life.

REPORTS FOR EDUCATION – EXCELLENCE FOR LEARNING
Quality education is a combined effort of teachers, administrators, students and parents. When all are working together in harmony, goals and objectives can be reached and rewarding results achieved. The goal of providing an optimal educational experience is compromised when conflicts arise within a given group. By learning to build effective relationships in the classroom, positive effects will be felt by everyone involved. With three different report types, each individual will have the tools they need to ensure a positive learning experience.
Excellence for Learning ™ – Administrator
Administrators should strive to be not just managers of people, but leaders of people. Because they wear many “hats” and have diverse responsibilities, they are required to be flexible and adaptive in their behavioral interactions. The more administrators are aware of their own behavioral tendencies as well as the tendencies of others, the more successfully they can be at fulfilling their important requirements and getting improved results from others. This report is recommended for use for Superintendent, Principal and Assistant levels.
Excellence for Learning ™ – Teacher
Teachers are instructors in not only education but also in interpersonal interaction. They deal with many different behavioral and learning styles each day and can benefit immensely from understanding the tendencies of these different styles. They are then better able to create a supportive environment where growth and excellence can flourish.
Excellence for Learning ™ – Student
The student report introduces the students to their communication preferences, the types of activities they like and offers guidance for improving study habits.

Multi-Health Systems, Inc. (EQ-i)
Emotional Intelligence is defined as “a set of emotional and social skills that influence the way we perceive and express ourselves, develop and maintain social relationships, cope with challenges and use emotional information in an effective and meaningful way.”
The EQ-i is the first scientifically validated Emotional Intelligence (EI) tool in the world. It is highly effective in the training and development of your current employees and leaders and can also critically aid with the selection of highly qualified future leaders for your organization.
The EQ-i 2.0® Assessment
Studies have shown Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQ-i 2.0) can be a verifiable reflection of one’s overall well-being and ability to succeed in life. Unlike Intelligence Quotient (IQ), which is a relatively static measurement in adulthood, Emotional Intelligence can be developed and changed over time. Evaluating and then working to develop an individual’s EQ-i can dramatically improve their interaction with others, performance at work and leadership potential. Although other factors contribute to a person’s overall potential and performance, the level of someone’s EQ-i is a key indicator of what they will be able to offer. EQ-i 2.0 is a highly effective employee development tool because it not only identifies development potential and pitfalls but also provides targeted strategies needed to make improvements. It can be useful for companies in the recruitment and retention of successful, emotionally healthy employees as well.
The EQ 360® Assessment
A client’s social and emotional functioning are identified by his or her own responses in the EQ-i 2.0, but the EQ 360 assessment gives a more complete, comprehensive analysis by also utilizing information anonymously provided by others who know the client. Clear alignment with EQ-i 2.0 makes the results easy to understand and interpret. The reports are structured in a very clear and linear manner that is easy to reference and follow and includes not only the feedback of all the raters but also the participant’s feedback consolidated into one report. By getting feedback from others, the individual is able to see themselves from a different perspective which is often different than their own self-perception and can go a long way in helping them improve not only as a person but also as a leader. There is also an EQ 360 Leadership assessment available to provide the most comprehensive look into an individual’s level of emotional intelligence, providing insight into their leadership abilities and how others view them in leadership roles.
EQ-i 2.0® Leadership Report
With a flexible, customizable framework, the EQ-i 2.0 Leadership allows you to create a report that is catered to your preferred leadership model, quickly pinpointing what you find important. The report is leader specific, ensuring relevance and results for your organization. Best practices and strategies for action make the model practical and drive developmental results. In addition, a specific benchmark comparing leaders to other top leaders will help your company gain a competitive advantage.

Just because someone is a good manager does not mean they will be a good leader. Do they have the ability to motivate? Are they engaging presenters? Do they have the characteristics and skills to be an effective leader including competencies in problem solving, decision making and motivating others? Although you can train for some of this, there are “measurable” key core characteristics that make this a more natural role for some. Identify the individual with core leadership characteristics and dissect areas where the most assistance is needed.
When employees are engaged they tend to be loyal to their employers and see their jobs as a source of enjoyment and pride, aspiring to go above and beyond their job descriptions to meet the goals of the business at large.

Barrett Values Centre
One of the most detailed and comprehensive cultural diagnostics and values assessment instruments available, the Cultural Transformation Tools (CTT) can help leaders, consultants and coaches build high-performance, values-driven cultures that attract and keep talented people and increase staff engagement.
The Barrett Model is a reworking of Maslow’s model of the hierarchy of human needs. Every human being on the planet evolves and grows in consciousness in seven well-defined stages. With each stage focusing on a particular need common to us all. The level of growth and development of an individual is dependent on their ability to satisfy these seven existential needs.
Cultural Values Assessment (CVA)
By having the individuals in your company take 15 minutes to answer three simple questions, you will be able to have a comprehensive diagnostic of the culture of your organization. The CVA will provide you with a detailed understanding of the personal motivations of employees, their experience within your organization and the direction the organization could or should be heading.
CVA results can generate deep, meaningful conversations about the purpose, priorities and strategies of the organization, and give you a road map for achieving flexibility and sustainability. The survey can be customized to the specific cultural and demographic needs of the groups being surveyed. There is no limit to the number of group categories you can choose and the survey is available in multiple languages.
Personal Values Assessment (PVA)
Who you are, what you hold dear, what upsets you and what motivates your decisions are all connected to your personal values. By coming to understand our values, we can better understand why we act and react the way we do. When we go against our values, we may feel as though we are not being true to ourselves, but living our values can give us a sense of balance.
The Personal Values Assessment is simple survey that takes just a few minutes of your time and provides a wealth of information. Exercises in the report help you better understand your values.
Prevue HR Systems
The process of intelligently choosing, keeping and motivating staff is one of the most difficult tasks a company can face and one of the most costly. Do you know how much employee turnover is costing you? Well-researched surveys reveal that it can cause monetary damages of up to 35% or more of the annual salary for most positions, not to mention the wasted time and energy on dealing with bad hires instead of helping good hires excel. By using the Prevue Assessment to identify and quantify the important qualities, learning abilities, interests and work-related personality traits of employees, your company will experience increased productivity and a reduction in costly turnovers.
The most common model to measure preferred behavioral styles is known as the “Big Five.” It identifies five personality dimensions: Openness (Unconventional), Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness (Likeable) and Neuroticism (Stable) or “OCEAN” for short. These five independent factors can normally be found distributed across large groups of adults and are easily defined:
- Openness (Unconventional): How adventurous or open to new ideas a person is: curious, unstructured, venturesome to predictable, closed or structured, rules-oriented.
- Conscientiousness: How persistent, motivated and organized an individual is: highly dependable and disciplined or lackadaisical and carefree.
- Extraversion: Measures what the focus of a person’s emotional energy is: outgoing, dominant, social and ambitious or shy, quiet and introverted.
- Agreeableness (Likeable): How pleasant and agreeable a person is: warm, tolerant and tactful or assertive, tough-minded, direct and skeptical.
- Neuroticism (Stable): Involves the degree to which a person is emotionally stable and resistant to stress: self-confident, calm, adjusted and poised or at the other extreme; often anxious and nervous.
Prevue offers a critical feature many assessments don’t. By making use of the completely automated Prevue Benchmarks, you will be given a Selection Report that not only analyzes the work-related characteristics of the candidates, but also contains a customizable comparison of their traits to the traits of someone ideally qualified for the position. Prevue will allow you to build Benchmarks easily, quickly and economically for all the positions within your company by analyzing the characteristics of top performers in a given position, as well as using management surveys.
Not only does the Prevue Assessment help with incoming job applicants, but it can provide valuable insight into the abilities, interests, motivations and personalities of current employees. When you ensure your organization is meeting the needs of its staff, you will notice an increase in overall job satisfaction and loyalty, and a decrease in turnover. Additionally, Prevue benchmarks can be compared to each employee’s results to reveal areas requiring additional training and coaching and a succession plan can be developed to map out future openings within you company. With this knowledge you will be able to promote wisely from within your organization with employees who have been identified and trained in advance.
