Psychometric assessments

CAPOD offers a range of different psychometric assessments. The CAPOD team includes a number of qualified practitioners who can administer the assessments and provide structured feedback.

Psychometric assessments can help you to understand more about your psychological preferences and why you think and behave the way you do, as well as how this might impact on other aspects of life such your current job, how you solve problems and communicate with others. This process can help you to identify areas of strength and suitability as well as areas for self-development.

Personality profiling

Personality profiling feedback may take place as a 1:1 or a group session with a qualified practitioner, depending on the circumstances. Your profile report and feedback is entirely confidential and will never be shared with anyone else without your permission.

15FQ+: A 'trait' based instrument that profiles your personality along 16 different scales. It will help you learn about yourself in terms of the relationships you form with others, your preferred thinking styles, your emotions and attitudes and your consistency of performance.


FIRO Element-B: A 'state' based instrument that helps you to understand how you may vary your behaviour in different situations.


JTI: A 'type' based instrument, very similar to the popular Myers-Briggs Type Inventory, which looks at your personality in terms of 4 dimensions. The resulting profile matches you to one of sixteen possible personality types.


MBTI Step I: Identifies an individual's 4-letter personality type (made up of four basic preferences) and provides a common language for how we interact with the world and each other. The insights gained provide a framework for tackling a broad range of issues that can be applied in both professional and personal situations.


MBTI Step II: Delves beyond the 4-letter type framework proposed by Step I and uncovers the many different facets of type that make each individual unique. These deeply personalized insights are perfect for coaching, action planning and building cohesive teams.


CAPOD administers assessment and delivery of feedback (1:1 or group), facilitation of events provided as part of our service (subject to availablity), but please note that there may be additional costs associated with particular psychometric assessment questionnaires.  To find out more, please contact one of the CAPOD team at or call (46)2141.

Belbin team roles

Almost everyone has to work as part of a team. Belbin team-role theory proposes that there a finite number of roles in a work team - nine in total. It's suggested that each person has some roles that they will naturally gravitate to and enjoy, some that they can perform if they have to, and some that they will actively avoid!

Belbin believes that the most effective work teams are those that have all nine team roles covered.


CAPOD can give you an insight into team roles in two ways:

  1. By allowing you to complete your individual team role profile (known as the Self-Perception Inventory or 'SPI') to show you your preferred, manageable and least preferred roles or;

  2. By profiling your entire work team together to show where your team's strengths and gaps lie.


To arrange a profile, or for more information, please contact one of the CAPOD team on (46)2141 or

Leadership styles

The Hay Group's research into highly effective leaders has defined six distinct patterns of behaviour emerge - six leadership styles.  Effective leaders use these styles in the right measure, at just the right time, to create a positive, energising work climate for their teams. 

These six leadership styles are:

  • Directive: securing immediate compliance from team members.

  • Visionary: providing long term direction and vision for team members.

  • Affiliative: creating harmony among team members.

  • Participative: building commitment among team members and generating new ideas.

  • Pacesetting: accomplishing tasks to high standards of excellence.

  • Coaching: offering long term professional development to team members.


Managers can and do draw on the six leadership styles in their day-to-day interactions. Since a manager's behaviour directly impacts employee motivation, it can be essential for a manager to understand the relationship between his / her leadership style and the work environment.


CAPOD can help you do this by giving you access to the Hay Leadership Styles Questionnaire. The questionnaire will indicate which of the leadership styles you use most. The feedback supplied can act as an excellent launchpad to help you think about your levels of effectiveness, and areas in which you may wish to develop.


To complete the questionnaire, or for more information please contact one of the CAPOD team on (46)2141 or

360 degree feedback

All leaders and managers can benefit from an enhanced self-awareness of their style and the impact it has on others. While some useful information can be obtained from Belbin Team Roles and the Hay Leadership Styles Questionnaire, a more in-depth understanding of how you are perceived by others can be obtained though a 360 degree developmental report.

CAPOD work in partnership with Andrews Munro to provide access to a range of online 360 degree feedback products under their Azure brand. Participation in the 360 degree process enables you to receive structured feedback across a number of key leadership themes from your line manager, your peers, your direct reports, other key stakeholders and even customers / suppliers if you wish. This feedback from all around you (hence the 360 degree name) is then collated together with your own responses and used to generate a developmental report.


Your profile will then be discussed in a confidential feedback session with a member of CAPOD - alternatively, you may wish to make use of an external faciliitator at additional cost to your department. 360 degree feedback can compliment the use of Personality Profiling, by providing rich data based on actual observation of how you perform and relate to others. The output from either product can then be used as the basis for possible coaching conversations going forward.


If you would like further information, or wish to arrange a developmental report for yourself, please contact the CAPOD team on (46)2141 or
