Harrison Assessments – Selection, Development, and Career Assessment

Harrison Assessments measure 156 traits of human behavior. Using “smart questionnaire technology”, HA measures the equivalent of a full day of testing and is validated for selection of new employees (at all levels) and both the individual and the team development of your current workforce.

Harrison Assessments include Enjoyment Performance Theory: enjoyment of a task or activity leads you to repeat the behavior. Repetition leads to improvement which leads to positive feedback from self and others which leads to increased enjoyment, which ‘results in greater competence and success.

We work with companies to deploy this assessment to support coaching and team development initiatives. We also assist companies interested in using the Harrison for job selection by providing expert feedback on assessment results and training for your personnel so that you can administer the Harrison Assessment internally if you prefer.

We also work with individuals in career transition to identify positions they are best suited to pursue. Learn more and request a demo.

Flow Energy Balance Indicator (FEBI®) – For Leaders, Teams, and Individuals

The Flow Energy Balance Indicator (FEBI) assessment is a validated psychometric instrument that measures four energy patterns in the nervous system that map to four personality factors, four ways of moving, and four essential modes of leadership. As a FEBI Certified Coach, Bevill works with leaders and teams to shift from unproductive coping habits and behaviors to sustainable improvements. A simple online assessment followed by coaching enables leaders to understand the patterns they typically use, how to access each of the four leadership patterns at any moment, and target its use at the right time. Rather than merely identifying habitual behaviors, the coaching and workshops introduce simple and sustainable practices that enable participants to access all four patterns. FEBI training is essential for meeting goals, effective communication, mutual respect and understanding, motivation, and engagement.

“What I love about FEBI is that there is no labeling,” said Bevill. “Unlike many assessments that confine by defining a personality or behavior type, FEBI includes learning simple, sustainable ways to develop each of the four leadership patterns so you can access your strengths and use the best pattern in any situation. I am passionate about offering sustainable solutions.”

In addition to the online assessment and coaching, Golden Career Strategies offers two half-day workshops to enhance the learning experience. The first workshop, Targeting Your Leadership Energy, builds leadership agility and emotional intelligence. This session helps leaders work with their own nervous systems, learning which leadership patterns they favor and how to shift into any pattern that aligns with needed outcomes. Most leaders have heard repeatedly of an area where they could be more effective but find it hard to change. This workshop provides physical ways to expand capability, build empathy, and embody change.

The second workshop, Harnessing Your Team’s Energy, brings teams together to understand how the patterns show up in team members, team dynamics, and the team overall. This session also explores how the patterns connect to the team’s purpose and context, including leveraging and developing the team’s leadership patterns for maximum effectiveness and sustainable results.

FEBI Assessment Peer Review


As I reflect on the FEBI and our debrief discussion I am left with the idea of wisdom acceleration.   FEBI can guide someone, or a team to reflect on their communication style and what they are ‘saying’ non-verbally.  To take the time to self-reflect and to be open to the resulting wisdom often comes with age and experience. The FEBI presents it now, providing a path to desired individual and team results.

Too often leadership teams believe that an underperforming team is due to the team members. I would suggest that leadership and intra-team communication is the underlying cause.  The FEBI,  when embraced, can build true and lasting ways of communicating that quickly eclipse other forced and artificial methods espoused elsewhere.  I’m impressed.

Herrmann International – Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI)
The Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI) is a self-report assessment that measures and describes personal thinking preferences as representative of four distinct styles. Developed by William “Ned” Herrmann, the HBDI is based on well-documented theories regarding specializations in the brain’s cerebral cortex and limbic systems, and the research into left-right brain lateralization by Roger Wolcott Sperry. We utilize the HBDI in personal coaching and team building to foster awareness of cognitive style and support choices for individuals and teams to think and react in more “whole brained” ways.
