There are a lot of "human assessments" available to help coaches and their clients better understand their strengths, weaknesses and opportunities to improve. Of the dozen or
more that I have taken over the years, I have chosen The Core Values Index or CVI as the one I use with all my clients. There is even a free basic version for people to
So, what makes the CVI my instrument of choice? Well there are a number of reasons and here are some of them:
- It takes only 10 minutes to complete. Who has time to spend an hour or more answering a bunch of questions?
- I can debrief my clients on their Core Values Index scores in an hour and they will understand what the assessment is telling them and how to use it. If you have ever taken the
Myers Briggs Type Instrument or MBTI, you know how difficult it can be to understand these kinds of assessments.
- Everyone's profile is unique to them. When you get your "numbers" using the CVI, you will be getting a profile that is unique to you. This isn't about type
casting anyone into a "box" but rather about opening the door to a better understanding of your unique nature.
- Most importantly, the CVI provides you with unique strategies to be more effective in your life. If you have ever felt frustrated, hurt, incompetent or stupid (and
who hasn't), this is the tool for you. Using this tool, you can learn how to manage these negative emotions and the unproductive behaviours that come with them.
Developed by Lynn Taylor of Taylor Protocols, this assessment helps you to understand where your "core" energies come from or in other words what "fuels" your success. And, as a
result, it is a great tool to use for Team Building exercises and even for improving the hiring process. Please click here to take your free
