Hogan Assessments Offers Two-Day Certification Workshop in Minneapolis

Workshop Advances Assessment and Interpretive Skills of HR Professionals Through Case Studies, Applied Feedback and Coaching

MINNEAPOLIS, MN--(Marketwired - Feb 24, 2014) - Hogan Assessment Systems, Inc., a global leader in personality assessment, research and leadership development, in conjunction with MDA Leadership, a national leadership and talent development firm, announced a two-day certification workshop for HR professionals who wish to master Hogan Assessments' comprehensive assessment suite.

The workshop will take place from Monday, April 28, through Tuesday, April 29, 2014, at MDA Leadership Consulting in Minneapolis. The workshop will be co-facilitated by Scott Gregory, Ph.D., Twin Cities General Manager at Hogan Assessments, and Sharon Sackett, Ph.D., Vice President of Talent Assessment at MDA Leadership Consulting. Participants will learn to use three Hogan inventories:

  • The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI), which evaluates personality characteristics that people need to ensure job fit and a successful career path.
  • The Hogan Development Survey (HDS), which identifies harmful interpersonal behaviors that can impede career success.
  • The Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI), which assesses drivers and core values to determine a person's fit within a corporate culture.

Hogan's assessment solutions help organizations predict workplace performance, which leads to reduced turnover and increased productivity by helping organizations hire the right people, develop key talent and evaluate leadership potential. Workshop participants conduct detailed interpretation and analysis of assessment results and give comprehensive feedback on the HPI, HDS and MVPI inventories in group and individual settings. They learn best practices concerning assessment use and interpretation.

Participants who attend both days and successfully complete the workshop will be certified to use the Hogan inventories. The program is approved for 13 (general) credit hours toward PHR, SPHR, and GPHR recertification through the HR Certification Institute. The workshop is also approved by the International Coach Federation for 13 Continuing Coaching Education units.
