Main Takeaways from my Hogan Certification

I recently went through a Hogan Assessment Certification course to become certified to give the Hogan Personality Inventory, Hogan Development Survey, and the Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory. Hogan is an organization that provides science-based personality assessments to help improve workplace performance. The three assessments I became certified in focus on a person’s typical day to day strengths, how they act under stress, and their overall values and desires. With that that being said, I wanted to share 5 things I learned from the two-day certification.

  1. Having personality data helps us become more self-aware.
  2. The more self-aware we can be, the more intentional we can be with our actions.
  3. Understanding our reputation and how others view us helps us become better employees.
  4. Certain traits are better for certain jobs, so personality assessments need to have context.
  5. Helping someone figure out their values helps them to figure out the career they should be in.
