What you learn from the Hogan certification

The two-day course (which includes the online learning mode before the interaction with the facilitator, manuals, subsequent LMS access for other free courses, access to the Hogan Elite Club local community and education and information materials) covers information about the in-depth interpretation of the 3 personality diagnosis instruments:

  • Personality inventory (refers to the personal potential), the HPI questionnaire is deemed as the golden standard in the assessment industry for the purpose of predicting occupational skills. The questionnaire comprises 7 primary scales (emotional balance, ambition, sociability, interpersonal sensitivity, prudency, intellectual curiosity, openness to learn) and 42 sub-items. The 7 primary scales predict the compatibility with several skills such as: emotional control, self-confidence, energy, result orientation, organization, creativity, strategic thinking, implementation orientation, skills for working with clients and people, leadership, teamwork.
  • Development inventory (refers to 11 counterproductive excessive behaviors which occur in situations of change, ambiguity, pressure, fatigue). HDS is the only questionnaire that is scientifically validated on a global level which predicts reactions in occupational contexts in situations of change, pressure, stress, about which Hogan has data that can cause failure in certain management positions. The 11 exaggerated behaviors are called the dark side of personality and are grouped into three categories: people distancing behaviors, seductive-aggressive behaviors and micro-management and submissiveness behaviors.
  • Values and preferences inventory - assesses 10 dimensions that provide information about the organization and department culture, and also about each person’s individual motivations. MVPI is a unique questionnaire that can provide valuable information for managers regarding the culture of subordinated teams and the motivational factors of each team member.

The certification session conducted by HART Consulting proved to be a real challenge. The fact that I had the opportunity to interpret the result of my own test changed my vision on the connection between human nature, leadership and performance. The open-ended conversations, the practical examples from the trainer’s own experience, and the active socializing with the other course
