The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) describes the dark-side personality - qualities that emerge in times of increased strain or when we are not monitoring our behaviour. This can derail peoples’ chances of success. By assessing dark-side personality, you can recognise and mitigate performance risks before they become a problem.
The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) is an ideal tool to help you strengthen your employee selection, leadership development, succession planning, and talent management processes.
Introduced in 1997, the HDS is the only personality assessment that identifies critical blind spots that lead to career derailment. When the pressure’s on, the line between strength and weakness isn’t always clear. Drive becomes ruthless ambition, attention to detail becomes micromanaging.
When examining HDS scale scores, it is important to remember that high scores are not necessarily better, and low scores are not necessarily worse. Every scale score reflects distinct strengths and shortcomings. Learn more in the Hogan Certification Workshop
