How can we assess different types of capabilities easily, with strong validity, and with a clear path for positive, developmental feedback?

The Arbiter Team has well developed experience in a range of proprietary tools that we are able to apply to different situations. We work with our clients to determine the most appropriate approach and combinations of capability and psychometric assessments to suit a particular situation.  Some examples are summarised below. 

Arbiter Leadership Acuity Programs

Arbiter Leadership Acuity Programs are customised to specific client outcomes using co-design principles and practices. In many cases, clients have engaged us to develop programs that include some of the diagnostic tools and instruments listed below;

Attributes and preferences
Self review

What

The attributes and Preferences Diagnostic is a self-reporting framework enabling participants to review and reflect on their career, track record, perspective on their strategic acuity, delivery and leadership style and preferences.

Why

Provides the individual participants and organisations with valuable comparisons/gap analysis between participant self-assessments and objectively assessed results from the Arbiter Program.

EQ-I
Emotional Maturity

What

The Emotional Quotient Inventory (EQI) is the first scientifically validated and most widely used Emotional Intelligence assessment in the world. Based on more than 20 years of research worldwide, the EQI examines an individual’s social and emotional strengths and weaknesses.

Why

Emotional intelligence is an essential leadership skill. It is a strong predictor of success and a skill that can be significantly improved with the right intervention. The EQ-I 2.0® and Group 360 reports allow individual participants and organisations to receive accurate diagnostics together with detailed associated development plans to practically and impactfully increase participant EI.

Pearman
Personality type indicator

What

The Pearman Personality Integrator (Pearman) explores the complexities of personality patterns. Pearman is based on understanding an individual’s personality at multiple levels - from how someone interacts with the external/internal world, to how they take in information and make decisions, and the combination of those individual pieces.

Why

The Pearman ‘Flex Index’ diagnostic provides individual participants and organisations with a measure of how well a person is able to leverage his/her psychological resources to operate at peak capacity. Understanding their Flex Index allows individuals and organisations to move leaders beyond a ‘type pattern’.

CSI
Change Style Preference Indicator

What

Change Style Indicator® (CSI) is a leadership assessment designed to measure an individual’s preferred style in approaching and addressing change. It provides leaders of all levels with insights on personal preferences for managing through change and provides context for how those around them might perceive and respond to their preferred style

Why

The CSI provides individual participants and organisations with a comprehensive assessment of a leader’s preferred leadership change style, insights into the advantages and strengths that each style offers in a team environment, how to improve interpersonal communication and understanding and realise the value of all perspectives. The CSI assists to more effectively enable group creativity, collaboration and innovation through higher impact team work and cooperation.

Barrett
Cultural Values Assesment

What

The Barratt CVA diagnostic provides individual participants and organisations with a comprehensive values insight report. From the assessment group’s collective reports, the organisation can impactfully measure, cultivate and align essential values and beliefs that contribute to a positive organisations core culture.

Why

Our values reflect what is important to us. They are a shorthand for describing our individual motivations. Together with our beliefs, they are the causal factors that drive our decision-making. Knowing our values helps us to understand why we may act or react the way we do. Living your values can make you feel in balance. In contrast, going against your values may make you feel as though you are not being true to yourself.

Referencing
3rd Party Insights

What

Provides objective and valuable 3rd party insights from key selected people in order to validate, cross-reference and inform other relevant observations.

Why

Third party referencing provides our Partners with additional information (from selected sources other than the participant) to interrogate a participant’s data at a deeper level. The results inform the final input into the personalised individual report.

Personalised Individual Report
Capability and Development

What

Arbiter participants meet 1:1 with a Managing Partner to receive their personalised individual Arbiter Capability and Development Report and discuss the findings and their interpretation and advised/required individual action.

Why

Participants receive a comprehensive Capability and Development Report and individual debrief/coaching session that holds a ‘mirror up’ to participants in terms of the way they function as both a human being and as a leader. The focus of this session is to guide them to make high impact positive changes to strengthen their enjoyment of and performance at work, both as individuals and as valued members of executive teams.
