Fulcrum has developed a collection of assessment tools of it's own along with those of selected partners and aliances that each fit a paticular need in producing our results.

MRG – Leadership Effectiveness Analysis

While other assessment tools are quick to define "the right way to lead" MRG's philosophy is firmly grounded in the research-based knowledge that true leaders take many forms and draw on combinations of assets and strengths demonstrating that there is no single "right" way to lead.

Intersecting business, science and the human spirit to provide results that leverage an individual or team's unique potential to achieve and contribute to success, MRG's model is unmatched in the marketplace. Measuring 22 leadership behaviors, the Leadership Effectiveness model will gives rich and practical insight to expand both individual and organizational development.

LEA Development Reports for individuals allow you to measure leadership at the level your intervention requires. The LEA 360 Report incorporates observations from others to provide deep insights into the patterns of leadership practices and increases awareness about the impact they are having on key constituents. Both come with rich feedback that includes: 
  • Powerful, unique descriptions of an individual's approach to leadership
  • Strategic implications and developmental opportunities
  • Suggested action steps and tools for prioritizing developmental actions

The Kolbe A™ Index/Instinct Test:

IQ tests tell you what you can do. Personality tests tell you what you want to do... the Kolbe A™ Index measures what you WILL or WON'T do. This quick and easy 36-question instrument gives you greater understanding of your own natural instincts and allows you to begin the process of maximizing your potential.

The Kolbe A Index measures your instinctive method of operation (MO), and identifies the ways you will be most productive. It need only be taken once, since these innate abilities do not change over time.

Talent Smart – Emotional Intelligence Appraisal – Multi-Rater Edition:

A complete emotional intelligence 360° test. The most accurate measure of emotional intelligence. Compares Self vs. Others - Find out how others view your EQ via closed- and open-ended questions.

Emotional intelligence is the “something” in each of us that is a bit intangible. It affects how we manage behavior, navigate social complexities, and make personal decisions that achieve positive results. Emotional intelligence is made up of four core skills that pair up under two primary competencies: personal competence and social competence.

Personal Profile (PPA)

PPA enables you to quickly and accurately assess an individual's behavioral style at work. The PPA system can be used at all levels of the organization and is appropriate for use in a wide variety of talent management applications.

Job Profiling

The HJA is an in-depth online questionnaire, and Job Create is a time-efficient interactive online tool. Both capture the ideal behavioral requirements for the role, within the organizational culture, and align jobs with business strategy.

Job Profiling is a key consideration when assessing candidates for job fit, as it ensures that you are comparing candidates to job criteria, versus “candidate to candidate” which could be perceived as discriminatory. The Goodness of Fit score of a candidate against the role quantifies job fit. This provides an objective basis for understanding candidate gaps, their implications and the likely training and support that will be required to close any gaps, to ensure the candidate performs optimally in the role.

Team Audit

The Team Audit Report enables a team to align with the business, understand how the team works, the strengths and limitations and the roles each individual plays to optimize on the contribution of the various team members. The user has tools to quickly analyze a team and generate a very comprehensive report in minutes.

Human Synergistics – Life Style Inventory

Beyond Emotional Intelligence: The LSI assesses and provides feedback on thinking and behavioral patterns that people can change to develop themselves along multiple dimensions, including their ability to understand and manage their emotions. The LSI will help you gain self-awareness as well as an understanding of the relationship between personal, management, and leadership styles and effectiveness.

Unique characteristics of the Life Styles Inventory™ (LSI)
  • Clearly describes the individual’s thinking (LSI 1) and behaviour (LSI2) in ways that promote constructive change
  • Highlights similarities and differences between self and others’ views, leading to greater awareness and a focus on improvement
  • Meets academic and psychometric standards

McQuaig Word Survey (WS)

WS is a measure of four personality domains that capture core aspects of the widely established "big five" personality factors. It is organized into 21 word sets, each consisting of four descriptors (a tetrad) - one from each of the four personality domains. Respondents rank order the trait-descriptors within each of the 21 sets based on the degree to which they are self-descriptive. WS interpretations and recommendations are based on seven basic profile patterns and their subsets.

The WS measures trait dimensions that are related to on-the-job performance and shows no evidence of adverse impact or differential prediction across protected groups.
