Tools and Diagnostics

'If the only tool you have is a hammer,
you tend to see every problem as a nail.'

- Abraham Maslow

Clarion Learning strongly recommends using a psychometric tools or learning instrument to support the development of personal self-awareness. Psychometric tools help people learn about their strengths and development areas. By providing a framework in which people can learn and talk constructively about similarities and differences, tools and diagnostics can significantly improve personal, team and organisational effectiveness.

As long as a learning instrument has been subjected to rigorous validity and reliability testing, there is no such thing as 'the best' learning instrument. As consultants who use psychometric tools our challenge is to choose the appropriate instrument for the context. We also use a range of tools and diagnostics to support us in our group and organizational learning processes; as part of the discovery, delivery and review phases.

A few of their practical benefits include improving communication and conflict resolution skills, enhancing personal development, identifying leadership style, exploring decision-making, problem-solving and learning styles, understanding reactions to change and stress and developing group and team effectiveness.

This is the section of the website where we have collected a selection of the instruments that the Clarion Learning consultant team uses and would therefore recommend for our clients. By clicking on the relevant sections you can find tools and diagnostics covering leadership and management development, communication skills, team learningorganizational change and cultural integration.

Of course, if your organization is already using a specific instrument to support personal development and growth on a corporate or group level then we would probably wish stay to consistent and use this instrument. Under these circumstances, we would ensure that the Clarion Learning consultants leading the program were accredited to administer and debrief the instrument concerned.
