Personality Assessments

Understanding ourselves (self-awareness) is helpful in us determining better what type of work we should be doing and in what type of environment in which we would perform even better. Personality Assessments are one of the many tools that we can use to better understand ourselves. Please do understand, I do not believe that any assessment of any type can fully and accurately describe an amazingly complex individual. But, I have found that they are like snapshots that give me a little better understanding of myself and they have been useful to me, and others, in becoming even better.

During this time, many people are doing a bit of soul-searching as to what they are best suited for vocationally. These assessments can be one piece of information to help you make that decision. The WorkStyles Assessment we offer is comprehensive and useful. I have been a part of two organizations that used it very effectively and I now use it in my coaching.

If you would like to order an assessment, please just click on the “Get In Touch!” button below to let us know and we will get you set up.


We provide individual leadership (executive) coaching to leaders as well as group coaching for leadership teams. We also provide personality assessments for individuals and teams that help people with their self-awareness.


We come alongside organizations to help them improve their effectiveness by helping them with their leadership development processes, internal coaching, and Board development.


We offer several workshops that are customized to meet your needs such as “The Five Dysfunctions of A Team Workshop”, Employe Engagement, Emotional Intelligence, and others.

Personality Assessment

We offer the WorkStyles Assessment as a tool to help you learn a bit more about yourself. It is a comprehensive assessment with plenty of practical tips for you. Contact us if you would like to take this powerful online assessment.

Notes From Some of Our Clients

“During my time working with BG, his unique insight has helped me not only to handle the present complexities of my role, but to also think beyond my immediate focus in a way that prepares me for future challenges. He has helped me to achieve more than I thought possible, in less time than I believed reasonable, to achieve results that I thought unattainable.”

“Since working with BG over the past year, he’s helped me to identify my strengths and weaknesses as a leader. With his encouragement, I’ve been able to create a plan of action to take my professional development to the next level. I’ve really enjoyed the time I’ve spent with BG thus far and look forward to his guidance in the future.”

“I have had the pleasure of working with BG both both as a executive leadership development consultant and class instructor while serving as Chief Innovation Officer at C Spire. His candor and ability to respectfully speak to difficult topics and seek meaningful understandings is greatly appreciated. Whether in individual or group settings with him my learnings grow with each interaction and I always come away with delight and new insights.”

“I recommend BG to anyone who is serious about reaching important goals. In my role as President of Talos Engineered Products, I am lucky to have two sister companies with strong Presidents I can collaborate with on important initiatives and use for internal support. I also report to the CEO of Diakonia who couldn’t be more supportive and helpful. Even with all this support, my progress towards my big goals has really kicked into high gear with BG’s help. My personal goals have been going very well strengthening my family relationships, my spiritual life, and my overall physical health. My big professional goal was to increase the engagement of Talos employees. BG has been instrumental in helping me on this huge undertaking.”
