Organizations and their employees can often realise tremendous benefits from tried-and true assessment tools. The Blueprint Group administers and analyzes the results of many such tools, a sampling of which are outlined below.

Organizational Development

The Organizational Culture Inventory® measures twelve styles that individuals believe are required to 'fit in' to the organization. These commonly-held beliefs affect such outcomes as turnover, employee satisfaction and the organization's ability to provide quality customer service. There are two measurement tools: 1) the OCI, which measures the actual or current culture and 2) the OCI Ideal, which measures what people think would be the ideal culture.

The Organizational Effectiveness Inventory® measures the cause and effect of culture. The OEI indicates the Levers for Change which have caused the culture to be what it is and the outcomes or results of that culture.

Team Development

The Group Styles Inventory® measures the styles teams use in their meetings. The Group Styles Inventory can be combined with a simulation to enhance learning in a workshop setting or as an effective assessment of an actual problem-solving session. Whether used by intact groups or ad hoc teams, the Group Styles Inventory® provides valuable feedback individuals and teams can use to improve their group problem solving skills.

The Group Styles Inventory® is best used with survival and business themed simulations that demonstrate the importance of working together to produce high quality decisions.

Self and Leadership Development

The EQ in Action Profile is a unique, powerful emotional intelligence instrument based on developmental psychology, interpersonal neuropsychology, and neurophysiology theory, plus years of clinical, educational, consulting and training work. The EQ In-Action Profile provides individuals with a profile of their basic internalized relational map, developed through life experience from infancy to this moment. The report profiles an individual's relationship strategies in different difficult contexts and measures these core leadership and interpersonal competencies:

  • Self-reflection
  • Self-soothing or self-regulation
  • Empathy

The EQ In-Action Profile is used as part of a highly focused coaching process for individuals who want to gain self-awareness and gain awareness of how they relate to others in effective or non-effective ways. This focused coaching process is for anyone who works with others and whose professional or life success is heavily impacted by the quality of their relationships. This is particularly valuable for leaders, managers, supervisors, consultants or internal staff who rely heavily on effective influence rather than having direct authority over others.

Leadership Impact® is a powerful tool measuring the impact of leaders on organizational performance. Specifically, it measures the extent to which a leader personally acts in prescriptive versus restrictive ways, the extent to which the leader motivates and drives people to behave in constructive versus defensive ways, and current performance using both personal and organizational criteria.

The LSI1® (Life Styles Inventory) is a self-development tool designed to increase personal understanding of individual thinking behaviour. The LSI1® is based on a combination of respected psychological and measurement theories. It measures the thoughts and attitudes which motivate behaviour, how individuals relate to others, as well as how they solve problems and make decisions.

The LSI 360°® was developed to enable members of an organization to harness the power of feedback and use it to enhance performance improvement time. With LSI 360°®, participants receive specific, constructive feedback on the implications of their behaviour from trusted associates. The report then combines this feedback with information about how an individual perceives him /herself, providing an accurate description of personal strengths as well as potential development needs.
