Personality Assessments for Leaders

Personality Assessments for Leaders

with Claire Chandler

“Assessments help you have a conversation that is balanced between the intuitive and the more data-driven.”

How can you discover more of your strengths, skills, talents, and gifts?

One way is through personality assessments.

Through personality assessments, you can learn more about who you are as a leader and as a person (because you’re both!).

Critics say personality assessments are unscientific, or worse, that they reinforce bias and discrimination. But 80% of Fortune 500 companies reportedly use them, so I thought it would be interesting to look into them more closely with an expert.

Claire Chandler has been helping leadership teams work together more effectively in less time with less cultural resistance to accelerate business growth for over 25 years. In this episode, she joins me to share a fresh perspective on assessments and how you can use them to drive better results.
