Leadership Assessments

Before you begin the journey, you need to know where you are.

How do we start being better leaders?


The more we become aware of our leadership capabilities, the better our choices will become. The first step in this process is to understand our strengths and our limitations. With the True Star Leadership method, I use a four-step method that includes interviewing our clients, performing a leadership assessment, and providing coaching to start our client on their journey to becoming a better leader.

Are you applying your leadership qualities to get better results?

It is hard to know this if you are not aware of what your leadership strengths and limitations are. The annual performance review provides you with your leadership qualities within respect to your present job but doesn’t tell you what strengths you need to develop for your next job. A personality assessment, although limited validation, helps you better understand your place within the work environment but doesn’t prepare you to lead.

The Assessments used through the True Star Leadership will provide you insights into your overall leadership capabilities and what attributes you should continue to work on to become a better leader. Additionally, I offer a sixty minute coaching session to help you formulate a plan to become a better leader.

Judgment Index logo

Judgment Index™

Judgment Index™ is based on the Hartman Value Profile and focused exclusively on the measurement of a person’s value systems and the predictive capability of such measurements in determining the judgments people make and ultimately the critical decisions they make in their personal and working lives. These values are the drivers of one’s daily attitudes, motivations, and behaviors in all that we do. To our knowledge, the Judgment Index™ is the only measurement tool that focuses on values, judgment to provide comprehensive personal, organizational and team analysis. These aspects assist in the development of making better judgments leading to enhanced productivity and well-being.

The Social & Emotional Intelligence Profile (SEIP)® is the most comprehensive, statistically-reliable, scientifically-validated emotional intelligence instrument on the market today. Based on over ten years of research, the SEIP® identifies an individual’s social and emotional intelligence strengths and development opportunities.

The SEIP® measures the 26 competencies identified as critical in socially and emotionally intelligent individuals, families, teams, and organizations. In addition to identifying areas of strength and areas for improvement, the instrument provides detailed descriptions of emotionally and socially intelligent behaviors when present and when lacking, as well as extensive suggestions for development, helpful for coaches, HR professionals and the individual receiving the results.
