I’ve taken many professional assessments over the years, but haven’t documented them until recently. Here are a couple I’ve had the pleasure of taking. I think this will help you get to know me and my strengths a little better.

StandOut Assessment – Who Am I?
Marcus Buckingham was offering free StandOut Assessments and our team took advantage! “The StandOut assessment measures how well you match 9 roles and reveals your primary Role and secondary Role.” ~StandOut Your Results. Essentially, this is who I truly am in my core. These are things that no one will be able to change about me.
I decided to share this because I believe that if anyone truly wants to get to know who I am before meeting me, this is it. If you are interested in the full report, I’m happy to share, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“You have an encyclopedic knowledge of what we need in our work. You are an instinctive gatherer of information, a collector of interesting factoids, articles, and insights. You do this not necessarily for your own benefit, but rather so you can package them up and parcel them back out to people who might need them, or find them useful. Over your career you will come to be known for this — whenever we are at a loss, we will turn to you, sure that you will have something valuable to share with us. You make a wonderful boss and mentor, because you not only teach us the basics of the job but also encourage us to take the next step — and reach out to those who can help us do it. Always generous with your knowledge, you are the quintessential career coach.”
4 Lenses – What are my strengths?
The 4 Lenses activity is a great way to understand a persons natural personality and where they can be the most beneficial in a team or organization. I recommend this simple exercise that takes only a few minutes. My results are: Primary is Gold and Secondary is Green.
Gold is quite accurate as my primary color. The descriptions I focus from these groups for myself are: training, stability, tradition, information, goals, specifics, organization, and structure.
Green is also quite accurate as my Secondary. The descriptions I focus from these groups for myself are: correct data, calm, cool, collected, analytical, teaching, data, needs challenges, logical explanations…and I guess I would add taking tests to that lists since…well, here we are.
Tony Robbins DISC & Motivators
“DISC is a simple, practical, easy to remember and universally acceptable model. It focuses on individual patterns of external, observable behaviors and measures the intensity of characteristics using scales of directness and openness of each of the four styles: Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Conscientious.”
My DISC Style is: Coach
Coaches are adept at solving “people problems”. They are seen as warm, empathetic and insightful. They like to form extended personal relationships and often develop a reputation for unobtrusive, contributory efforts when working with others. They can become too lenient with marginal contributors and tend to be too mild when issuing corrections, directions and expectations.
- Emotionally: Wants to be seen as warm and open by others.
- Your goal: Building personal connections and positive feelings.
- How you value others: Favorable recognition of others; finds the basic decency in them.
- How you influence a group: Through personal relationships and being open to others’ ideas, problems and needs.
- The value you bring to an organization: Will bring stability to group efforts with predictable actions and will possess good listening skills.
- Cautions: Can become too tolerant and may avoid needed direct confrontations.
- When under pressure: Can become too accommodating, trusting and sharing too much with others.
- What you fear: Having to pressure others or being seen or blamed as the source of pain or problems by others.
While these are a pretty accurate description of my personality and traits, there are things that I do that I would prefer not to, but I tend to be pretty good at them – difficult conversations and direct confrontations specifically. Also, I feel that I work best under pressure and I am consistently working on all of my skillsets.
