Like a CEO assessment, a Board assessment often includes a personality test. Many executives and consultants use tests like Beldin’s team roles, Enneagram, MBTI, DISC, PSI, LPI, H.D.I., Birkman, MTR-i or TMS.

Yet, these are not the most important basis for successful Boards.


More important factors are:

These factors don’t even come up for discussion in style programs.


Tip for Board Assessment:

When discussing the behavior of one of the Board members, don’t use the results of the Board assessment that the Board member filled in. Instead, use only the person’s specific, well-articulated behavior that has been directly observed by other Board members.
