Strengths for Success

Discover the Power Within

Strengths for Success™ combines the might of two industry-leading assessment tools to help your clients identify their natural productivity styles and unique personality types—knowledge that contributes to their ability to gain employment, keep a job, and be happy and successful in their work. Our personality type assessment helps clients gain confidence and greater self-awareness, preparing them to pursue careers and work experiences that match their innate strengths. The second assessment pinpoints your client’s productivity style and reveals their most effective working environment, helping to boost self-esteem, reduce work-related stress and improve overall performance.

Scientifically Proven Results

Our comprehensive tools are backed by years of psychological research. Based on the best-selling book, Do What You Are®, our Personality Type assessment is founded on decades of Jungian type theory. Research has shown that individuals exhibit distinct preferences in how they take in information, make decisions, and interact with their inner and outer worlds. These innate dispositions represent “personality type,” an individual’s personal secret to success. With insight into their natural strengths and preferences, your clients will be more confident and better prepared to make good decisions in their career choices and work experiences.

Over 30 years of doctoral research has proven that an understanding of preferences can considerably improve a worker’s personal productivity. Studies show that an ideal working environment can enhance concentration, boost output, and help your clients to more effectively absorb new or difficult information. Our Productivity Environmental Preference Survey (PEPS) has been proven to be a valid and reliable instrument and is the most accurate and widely used productivity style inventory of its kind worldwide.
