Programme overview

This two day, intensive workshop provides participants with the knowledge and skills to administer, interpret and implement the three Hogan personality assessments used by organisations of all sizes and specialities worldwide (over 66% of the Fortune 100 are Hogan Certified) to enhance their selection, training, leadership identification, development, change management and staff retention processes. The reports generated by the three assessments provide the best objective and predictive data for organisations that genuinely want to select, develop and retain the best people at all levels.


Participants in the Hogan Assessment Certification Workshop get accreditation in managing the administration of the 3 Hogan assessments in over 40 different languages and the 30 bespoke reports relevant to a wide range of selection, development and leadership scenarios.  The Hogan assessments and their wide range of reports make valid and reliable predictions of performance, individually and in teams, at all levels in the workplace.

  • HR Directors and Managers
  • Organisational Development and Training Professionals
  • Heads of Departments
  • Talent Manager
  • Line Managers
  • Psychologists
  • Therapists
  • Career Counsellors
  • Executive Coaches


The three Hogan personality assessments that participants will be taught to administer, interpret and implement are the following:
  • The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) evaluates personality characteristics that distinguish individuals and predict career success. Whether an organisation’s goal is to hire the right people or develop stronger leaders, the HPI provides valuable insights into how people work, how they lead, and how successful they will be. For Executive Coaches and Career Counselors and Planners, the HPI is an essential element in providing clients with advice about which career to pursue and at what level.
  • The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) identifies qualities that emerge in times of increased strain and unguarded complacency that disrupt relationships, damage reputations, and derail peoples’ chances of success. The HDS gives organisations the insights to identify and mitigate performance risks before they affect productivity and turnover.
  • The Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI) assesses business drivers and core values for individual fit within a corporate culture. By assessing values, participants can understand what motivates candidates to succeed, and in what type of role, job, and environment they will be the most productive.


  • Pre-course personality assessment
  • Hogan Assessment Certification Workbook
  • access to three comprehensive technical manuals
  • account set-up on the Hogan Assessment Link Online (HALO) to administer the three assessments online and receive reports via email.


2 day intensive face-to-face course, plus 30-45 minutes per participant personal telephone discussion on participants’ personality profiles.
