Hogan accreditation workshop event details


Joyce and Robert Hogan were the first to prove that personality predicts workplace performance by helping businesses dramatically reduce turnover and increase productivity by hiring the right people, developing key talent, and evaluating leadership potential. Twenty-five years later, Hogan assessments are used at many of the most successful companies in the world.

The Hogan Assessment Systems (HAS) accreditation workshop

This workshop provides an in depth understanding of how to administer, interpret and implement the Hogan Assessment suite. The workshop provides a comprehensive tutorial on three inventories:

Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) The HPI describes normal personality – qualities that describe how we relate to others when we are at our best. Whether your goal is to find the right hire or develop stronger leaders, assessing normal personality gives you valuable insight into how people work, how they lead, and how successful they will be.  Also known as: The Bright Side of Personality.

Hogan Development Survey (HDS) The HDS describes the dark side of personality – qualities that emerge in times of increased strain and can disrupt relationships, damage reputations, and derail peoples’ chances of success. By assessing dark-side personality, you can recognise and mitigate performance risks before they become a problem. Also known as: The Dark Side of Personality.

Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI) The MVPI describes personality from the inside – the core goals, values, drivers, and interests that determine what we desire and strive to attain. By assessing values, you can understand what motivates candidates to succeed, and in what type of position, job, and environment they will be the most productive. Also known as: The Inside of Personality.



The two-day Certification Workshop provides an in-depth understanding of how to use and interpret the Hogan assessment suite.  Participants attending both days and successfully completing the workshop will be certified to use the Hogan inventories.

The final step before gaining your Hogan certification is to complete a full written interpretation of a Hogan Profile and to accurately answer questions from your Winsborough Consultant about this profile.

You will have access to online classroom and coaching sessions to support you in your preparation for this. These sessions are hosted via Zoom and facilitated by our experienced Winsborough Consultants. We recommend you attend at least one of these sessions before you submit your written profile interpretation. You are then invited to complete a 30min Q&A session with a Winsborough Consultant.
