E3 Assessment

When appropriate, we leverage the E3 Assessment tool, powered by Behavioral Essentials, in our coaching process to boost awareness of a person’s strengths and highlight potential opportunities for growth. It is an effective, yet simple, scientifically-developed assessment that measures 21 core behavioral tendencies, motivators, and values of an individual.

The E3 is based on adjective checklist methodology for behavioral testing that was established as a valid and reliable methodology in the 1950’s & 60’s, and has been tested with thousands of companies. Adjectives are used because they represent an individual’s preferences more accurately than statements or questions.
