We often find that our clients are interested in a scientific understanding of their leadership strengths and of the areas that can improved. While individual-directed self-reflection is a critical part of leadership development, using scientifically based self-assessments and 360 assessments can significantly help identify blind-spots in your practice and give you an edge in your work and your personal life.
At Bevan International we have access to dozens of different individual and teams assessment tool, but choose to use three. These three tools, used individually and collectively, have proven to be easy to understand, effective, long lasting and research based.
The Emotional Quotient 2.0 assesses your emotional intelligence in the five key domains of EQ-i. Emotional intelligence has proven to be to be a key indicator of human performance and development.
The Emotional Quotient 360 (EQ 360) is an emotional intelligence assessment that allows leaders to receive feedback from peers, managers, direct reports, and others on how they leverage their emotional intelligence. It offers clear alignment with the EQ-i 2.0: automated set-up, condensed report output, enhanced report appearance, and detailed interpretation.

The SDI 2.0, is a self-scoring assessment that has been taken by more than 2 million people in over 31 countries.
The SDI can play a significant role in our approach to supporting your learning — by measuring what motivates your behaviour when things are going well, and how those motives change when we encounter conflict or opposition.
Whereas other assessment tools measure behaviour, the SDI 2.0 goes beyond behaviour into the motives and values that drive those behaviours. Unlike behaviour that can change depending on a variety of circumstances, your motivation does not vary significantly over your lifetime.
Through Bevan International, clients take the SDI 2.0, and then interpret their results in one of two ways: through a 1 x 1 coaching session or through a team workshop — gaining valuable insight through discussion and analysis of their results.
Based on the work of Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, The Leadership Practices Inventory, or LPI s a questionnaire that contains 30 behavioural statements—six for each of The Five Practices of Exemplary Leadership®— and takes 10 to 20 minutes to complete. Kouzes and Posner have found that there are five core practices that great leaders model. Each practice has two sub components. Practising these 10 leadership skills can significantly improve your leadership game, but it is hard to practice and improve upon them them if you don't know how others are perceiving your performance.
The LPI 360 is an observer-based tool for leaders and managers at all levels in an organization—commercial and nonprofit, health care and government—that incorporates the LPI Self instrument (completed by the Leader) and the LPI Observer that gathers important insight from bosses, co-workers, direct reports, and others who have direct experience of the individual leader in a leadership role.
