The Move to Greatness Model
The Move to Greatness Model measures personality in terms of four fundamental energy patterns linking mind, body and behaviors. It describes currently preferred patterns and prescribes patterns that will overcome potential risk areas, leading to greater performance and sustainable balance in individuals, teams, and organizations.
The Move to Greatness Model is useful for:
- Providing a holistic framework to integrate multiple assessment tools
- Gaining insight into one’s supervisory style
- Better understanding, developing, and delegating to others
- Helping people know themselves, and training them to read the patterns of others
- Learning ways to communicate with others and handle conflict

The Team Management System
The Team Management System approach focuses on identifying and understanding key work elements that explain why some individuals, teams, and organizations perform effectively and achieve their objectives, while others fail. Team Management Systems assessments reveal critical dynamics that enable the development of high-performance teams in the workplace.
The family of Team Management System profile reports is useful for:
- Understanding team work preferences
- Understanding an individual's approach to the team environment
- Helping team members understand other people’s approach to risk-taking and openness to new ideas

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator
The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) has been used for more than 50 years to understand individual differences and uncover new ways to work and interact with others. The theory behind the instrument is that much seemingly random variation in behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment. The MBTI measures a person’s preferences, using four basic scales with opposite poles: (1) extraversion/introversion, (2) sensing/intuition, (3) thinking/feeling, and (4) judging/perceiving. The various combinations of these preferences result in 16 personality types.
The MBTI is useful for:
- Understanding individual and team preferences
- Developing leadership
- Understanding workplace conflict
More than 2 million assessments are administered to individuals annually in the United States alone, and the MBTI family of tools is available in 16 languages.

Belbin’s Team Role Report and Observer Assessments
Belbin’s research has demonstrated that there are a finite number of behaviors or team roles which comprise certain patterns of behavior that are adopted naturally by the various personality types found in the workplace. The accurate delineation of these team roles is critical in understanding the dynamics of any management or work team.
The Belbin Team Role Report outlines an individual’s perception of their behavioral strengths and weaknesses in the workplace. By identifying one of nine Team Roles, an individual can use their strengths to advantage and gain an aware of pitfalls and make an effort to avoid them.
Since the characteristics an individual identifies may not be the behavior that others in the organization values, this report may be combined with Observer Assessments, Belbin’s method for obtaining 360-degree feedback. This process entails approaching managers, colleagues, and those who are managed by the individual and asking them to complete a short assessment.
Belbin Team Role Reports provide a common language to help:
- Form productive working relationships among individuals
- Select and develop high-performing teams
- Raise self-awareness and increase personal effectiveness
- Identify talent in the workplace
