Board Assessment

Leadership Diagnostics

Understanding executive strengths and weaknesses will enable effective leadership. Undertaking a round of assessments will enable leaders to become more self-aware, understand what they need to work on and how to mitigate their weaknesses.

Psychometric Testing

We use innovative and powerful assessment tools, based on and supported by sound research which are highly predictive of job success.


We typically assess normal personality preferences, qualities that describe how we relate to others when we are at our best. This will give you valuable insight into how people work, how they lead, and how successful they will be.


We also assess the dark side of personality, qualities that emerge in times of increased strain and can disrupt relationships, damage reputations, and derail peoples’ chances of success. By assessing dark-side personality, you can recognise and mitigate performance risks before they become a problem.

We also use assessments to uncover core values, goals, and interests. This information is crucial for understanding the kinds of roles and work environments people find enjoyable and perform best in.


360 degree Feedback Surveys

360 degree Feedback is a process in which employees receive confidential, anonymous feedback from the people who work around them. This typically includes the leader’s manager, peers, key stakeholders and direct reports.


Insights Business Psychology designs bespoke secure online assessments based on an organisation’s values, strengths, competencies or behaviours, that can be completed in complete confidence. We work with you to design and build bespoke 360 degree assessments.
