Harnessing the capabilities of unique personalities leads to higher-performing teams.
Exploring our professional interests and broadening our education is a priority at Public Knowledge® (PK). We are happy to announce that Management Consultant Lamar Smith has earned his Hogans Assessment Certification.
What is the Hogan Assessment?
Wouldn’t it be insightful to understand not only how you think you show up to a stressful situation but how others see you? You may feel as though you are flustered, but people may perceive you as calm, cool, and collected. The Hogan will reveal these findings. Based on 30 years of research, the Hogan assessment is the first of its kind to measure a person’s personality for business scientifically. Measuring your reputation instead of your identity shows how you present to others versus how you perceive yourself. While this may sound daunting, it is an invaluable tool to understand ourselves better.
The Bright Side, The Dark Side, The Inside
As complex, multi-faceted beings, the Hogan Assessment is a unique way to get to know yourself in a new way. As thought leaders, this is a powerful resource in our work and the clients we serve. This thorough evaluation measures various aspects of your personality—such as how you relate to others at our best, how you present at times of increased stress, and your actual goals.
Lamar Smith Completes Hogan Assessment Certification
As a Hogans Assessment Certification holder, Lamar can administer the assessment. Three core assessments measure different traits:
- Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI)
- Hogan Development Survey (HDS)
- Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI)
Designed to challenge traditional thinking regarding leadership, performance, and human nature, Lamar earning this certification is highly aligned with PK’s Values. In addition, it is an assessment that can be easily deployed with our DitDah™ Project Management Methodology. A core component is the development of healthy teams, and the awareness the assessment supplies provides the foundation for cohesive team formation and growth.
Professional Development Can Be Exciting
PK believes that professional development is more than a mandatory, annual requirement. It should be an exciting opportunity to explore your interests and enhance our capabilities as thought leaders. Everyone at our firm receives time to dedicate to professional development opportunities of their choice.
