The accuracy of this assessment astounded me. I have been privileged to have been through a myriad of assessments over my 35 year career – none more accurate than this one! The questions are short and sharp and cut to the bone evoking introspection. Powerful in its simplicity, this is a priceless measure for anyone seeking honest feedback for their rise to greatness.
