Personality Predicts Performance

Research-Based Insight

As you reach the final stages of an administrative search, our Candidate Assessments can give you greater insight into the personalities of your finalists—which can help you anticipate how they might perform at your school.  We use Hogan Assessments, a tool used by over half of Fortune 500 companies, to identify key personality traits and connect them to job performance. The assessments are based on decades of pioneering research into personality’s impact on organizational success.


Independent School Expertise

Southern Teachers is conducting groundbreaking research by using the Hogan Assessments to study personality’s importance in independent school leadership. We’ve also used Hogan tools in administrative search and placement for years. Our consultants draw on this expertise to help you understand a candidate’s personality and evaluate their suitability for your school.


Selection Assessment

You may have found it easy to narrow your pool of applicants down to a group of finalists, but choosing between your top candidates isn’t always simple. Our Selection Assessment, based on Hogan tools, is designed to give you perspective on your top three to five finalist candidates and their potential performance at your school.

Confirmation Assessment

You’ve identified your top candidate and you’re almost ready to make an offer, but the stakes for administrative hiring are high. Our Confirmation Assessment draws on Hogan tools to help you evaluate a single candidate. Your school can use this Assessment to confirm your top finalist's fit—and if requested, our consultants can share a development plan with the candidate to aid their addition to your team.
