What is Hogan?
The international authority in personality assessment and consulting, Hogan Assessments has more than three decades of experience dramatically reducing turnover and increasing productivity by helping businesses hire the right people, develop key talent, and evaluate leadership potential.
Grounded in more than a century of science and backed by the largest and most complete pool of research in the industry, the Hogan assessments predict job performance by assessing normal personality, derailment characteristics, core values, and cognitive reasoning ability.
Hogan’s portfolio of employee selection, development and leadership tools allow companies to better manage their most valuable assets – their people.
What is HoganLead?
Hogan offers a variety of assessments to suit different situations. Reports are generated from the same four assessments, but all with different outcomes that help inform different situations.
At Beyond Bounds, we use the HoganLead suite of reports. HoganLead reports are specifically designed to provide leaders with insights arising from each Hogan Assessment that can directly impact their leadership effectiveness.
These are the “gold standard” reports and often used for executive and senior management talent development.
HoganLead : The assessments
- Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI)
The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) describes normal, or bright-side personality – qualities that describe how we relate to others when we are at our best. Whether your goal is to find the right hire or develop stronger leaders, assessing normal personality gives you valuable insight into how people work, how they lead, and how successful they will be.
- Hogan Development Survey (HDS)
The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) describes 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 recognize and mitigate performance risks before they become a problem.
- Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI)
The Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI) describes personality from the inside – the core goals, values, drivers, and interests that determine what we desire and strive to attain. By assessing values, you can understand what motivates candidates to succeed, and in what type of position, job, and environment they will be the most productive.
HoganLead : The reports
HoganLead, also known as the Hogan Leadersip Forecast series, includes four development-focused reports.
Based on Hogan’s trademark assessments, the Hogan Personality Inventory, Hogan Development Survey, and Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory, each report offers information regarding the characteristics, competencies, and values that underlie how a leader approaches work, leadership, and interaction with others in the workplace.
- Potential Report
The Potential Report outlines day-to-day leadership style, describes behaviors typically associated with that style, leadership competencies, and comprehensive development recommendations.
- Challenge Report
The Challenge Report describes how leaders are likely to interpret the world and treat subordinates while under stress and pressure. The Challenge Report predicts career-derailing behaviors that interfere with the ability to build a cohesive and high-performing team.
- Values Report
The Values Report explores the core values and goals that ultimately drive a leaders behavior, aspirations, and expectations about life. What people value determines how they will lead; this determines the kind of environment a leader will create and the sort of organizational culture the person will do the best work.
- Summary Report
The Summary Report is an overview of a candidate’s strengths, challenges, and values. The report integrates results across the HPI, HDS, and MVPI to provide a snapshot of interpersonal performance and values in relation to future career aspirations.
How it works
Engaging with HoganLead involves completing 3 online inventories which take on average 15 – 20 minutes each to complete. A link will be sent direct to the coachee’s inbox for them to complete each of the inventories.
HoganLead can be conducted as a stand-alone exercise or as part of the Alison Executive Coaching Programme.

What my clients say
Right from the start of our work together, Alison helped me extend my horizons. Coaching with her gave me the confidence to take several important steps and exceed goals originally set by my manager. This led to my promotion to Director within 9 months and a new assignment to lead and build a new organisation.
A few years ago, I rented out my flat. The new tenant was initially very enthusiastic about the garden and promised to look after it. Inspecting the property a few months later, I discovered the garden had been pretty neglected except for a large gap where a favourite climber had covered a large piece of fence. When I asked the tenant, she said “Oh, I thought it was dead!” She’d mistaken its typical winter appearance (bare and twiggy) and made an executive decision to get rid of it.
