Personality & Behaviour Assessments


Every individual has unique personality or behavioural traits. There is no right or wrong to these traits.

However, behaviours can be deemed as effective and appropriate or not depending on a specific situation. Adopting personality or behaviour assessments, one can seek to understand their behavioural preferences and styles in the context of work. The insights gained from the report enable the individual’s strengths and weaknesses to be identified and mapped to the targeted job profile to create best job-fit as well as team’s profile to form a high performing team. As for development, one may work on the areas of development while leveraging on the strengths.

During hiring and selection, personality or behaviour assessments provide opportunities to understand people’s talent and motivations, thereby empower a more confident decision making. Better understanding of individual’s motivations also enables more effective talent management to groom the talent in the organisation.

Both Wave® Professional Styles and Focus Styles measure motives, talents, preferred culture and competency potential in one dynamic online questionnaire.

The Resilience Questionnaire

What is The Resilience Questionnaire

The Resilience Questionnaire focuses on the aspects of an individual’s patterns of thinking, preferences and behavior that affect their ability to respond positively to setbacks and challenges. The tool has a developmental focus, providing information about how each component of an individual’s ‘resilience profile’ can be developed, as opposed to assessing whether an individual is resilient or not.

The online questionnaire covers eight components of resilience, which have been identified through extensive research:

  • Self-belief
  • Optimism
  • Purposeful direction
  • Adaptability
  • Ingenuity
  • Challenge orientation
  • Emotion regulation
  • Support seeking

The feedback report provides participants with a summary of their results for the eight components of resilience, together with options for developing each one. Individuals’ responses to the questionnaire are compared to those of a norm group, allowing respondents to understand how their levels of resilience compare with other people who have completed the test previously.


The Resilience Questionnaire can be integrated into a range of talent management activities including:

  • Coaching
  • Self-development workshops
  • Blended learning
  • Team development
  • Development centres
  • Development of high potentials
  • Redeployment, restructure & downsizing
  • Graduate development & onboarding
  • Organisational change
  • Management & leadership development
