In my days in the corporate world, I sat through many assessments and workshops with mixed results. To be honest, I’m not an assessment fan. So as a coach, I was not one to jump on the DiSC, the Myers Briggs, Strengthsfinder, or any of the other common personality tests as a tool I wanted to use in my coaching. That all changed when I discovered the Core Values Index™ or CVI™ from Taylor Protocols.

Now, this is not an advertisement or sales pitch. I just want to make you aware of a great tool that’s available for free. You’ll get your free video results and report immediately after you take the 10-minute assessment.  And it’s very easy.  All you do is choose 2 out of 4 words on every screen to which you have an affinity.  Here’s a link to the free assessment.

The Core Values Index™

  • is a revolutionary human assessment.
  • measures innate, unchanging nature of an individual, different from
  • personality and behavioral based assessments.
  • takes ten minutes or less to complete.
  • provides highly accurate, (>94% repeatability) reliable picture of core motivational drivers of any person, with an instant report, online.

Core motivational drivers cause a person to want to make a contribution to the world and their work in a certain way. This deepest, internal-self also prescribes the behaviors and work that serve to develop self-esteem, causing people to subconsciously desire a situation that offers them the opportunity to make the highest contribution possible.

Why I love it

The CVI™ provides a wonderful basis and common language for effective and productive conversations about behaviors and expectations with team members, even in a very first meeting. Team members see immediately that this is serious work, and know what to expect in both personal and working relationships.

The difference between the CVI™ and other tools is that the CVI™ measures innate preference (suitability) rather than ability or adaptability. It helps people focus on identifying what satisfies or fulfills them about the work they do.

The CVI™ is easy to understand, incredibly memorable and can be applied immediately to your team relationships and communications. That’s why it’s key in my coaching engagements. You’ll quickly discover why people behave the way they do, and why it’s so perplexing to you!

Take the assessment and see if you agree that your results describe you to a T.
