Developmental Diagnostics & Assessments

HalgrenCoaching is certified by the British Psychological Society, Harvard faculty and other industry leading organizations to administer best-of-industry, evidence-based assessment tools ranging from the intrapersonal to the interpersonal and group/organizational/contextual perspectives.

We can determine the stage of (vertical) development, thinking preferences, anchors of authenticity and personal assumptions, emotional and cognitive capacity, leadership and teaming practices and national/organizational cultural preferences. In all cases, our use of assessments for self and social awareness provide a positive developmental diagnostic focus and are conducted in process that is constructive and valuable for both the individual and organization.
