Leadership Assessments

Spoke Wheel Model Assessment

(roll over for more)

This assessment is modeled after a bicycle wheel, with a hub in the center, spokes extruding from the hub, and a rim holding the spokes together. The Spoke Wheel Model assesses the communications dynamics between a leader and his/her team, and the dynamics between team members themselves. In addition to the core assessment, we offer an extensive library of questions that can be added to gain insights on individual communication development needs, dynamics and relationships on the team, and communication styles.

CDS Personnel Questionnaire

(roll over for more)
  • The personality factors measured by the CDS Personnel Questionnaire signify personality traits that are embedded in an individual’s nature.
  • The assessment is focused more on our hard-wiring than on how we are affected by our environment.
  • We recognize an individual’s personality traits as prior to particular behavior, but NOT necessarily 100% predictive of behavior.
  • An individual with particular personality traits is disposed  to behave in a certain way, but that disposition does not necessarily determine behavior. Individuals always have free will.
  • The full CDS Personnel Questionnaire assessment consists of sixteen personality factors AND 5 “global” factors.

  • The instrument identifies five different leadership styles based on the concern for people and the concern for production.
  • The model is represented as a grid with concern for production as the X-axis and concern for people as the Y-axis; each axis ranges from 1 (Low) to 9 (High).
  • The optimal leadership style in this model is based on Theory Y.
