If you have had a session with me then you know I am ALL about using data points to push us toward clarity.
Clarity in terms of who we are as people in general as well as data points to help us determine various potential actions we may need to take to support our career growth. One way of uncovering these data points is through assessments!
Assessments provide nuggets of insights that can help you:
understand how development strategies and action plans need to be created,
Strengthen and clarify your understanding of your own strengths and areas of opportunity
Here are a few assessments that I have found to be extremely helpful and more importantly are based on sound, research-backed professional development theories.
The Big 5 Personality Test
Explore your personality with the highly respected Five Factor model (aka the Big Five). You’ll see how you stack up on 5 major dimensions of personality: Openness, Conscientiousness, Agreeableness, Extraversion, and Neuroticism. The Big Five model of personality is widely considered to be the most robust way to describe personality differences and is the basis of most modern personality research.
The 16 Types Personality Test
Explore your personality type with the TypeFinder Personality Test. Based on the theory of 16 types developed by Isabel Briggs Myers and Truity’s own original research, the TypeFinder goes deeper than any personality assessment you’ve taken before. The TypeFinder reveals not only your four-letter personality type code, but also how 23 additional facets of your personality make up your one-of-a-kind personality profile.
Career Aptitude Test
Truity’s Career Personality Profiler will measure both your interests and your personality traits so you can choose a career that will keep you motivated and satisfied. Take the Career Personality Profiler and discover which careers will maximize your potential, take advantage of your natural talents, and line up with your core values.

I’m Sick of This Shit
You’ve been frustrated and you have felt stuck. Some here along the way life began happening TO you and left so little in in your control. Something has got to change because you are SICK of the shit. If you are ready to usher in a shift in your life but aren’t sure what that looks like or perhaps you are going through a period of transition, you need this book. It is a blend of thoughtful questions about life direction, stories of uplift and journaling that can change your life.
This book is amazing. I lost my job, a place I planned to retire at. I was super lost. This book gave me some insight on how to pick up the pieces.
“I’m Sick if This Shit” has lots of positive energy and strategies that are realistic, sustainable, and adaptable. Especially when trying to figure out your next steps. I loved the clear and positive tones which made it easy to follow along and the Step-by-step advice given to help you look at the big picture. Overall I will recommend this book to any and everyone. I believe there is something for everyone to gain from reading it.
Love love to start my day with this book!!! Easy and helpful read.
I really enjoyed this book because it identifies issues that everyone struggles with and it provides you with a practical way to approach whatever it is you may be dealing with, whether it’s your professional or personal life.
Talk about a book that was right on time. The content was insightful, and applicable to every day issues. Everyone has been there, and this book spoke to how to get out of this mindset and put a plan into action.
