The behavioural assessment tool is based on four key characteristics – dominance, influence, steadiness and compliance – and examines the extent to which someone exhibits each trait.
The free program also offers leadership lessons and areas for improvement as well as comparable personas and advice on your ideal profession – is HR really for you?
