MTQPLUS / ILM 72

Why use psychometric measures?


The short answer is that a good, valid and reliable, psychometric test helps users to make better decisions about people. People are complex and assessing people accurately is notoriously challenging. And yet it’s vital if we are select for good fit or identify development needs effectively.

MTQ Plus Assessment​

The MTQPlus assessment is a unique 74 item high-quality psychometric measure that measures Mental Toughness which describes the mindset that every person adopts in everything they do. It is closely related to qualities such as character, resilience, grit, etc.

Published research and case studies from around the world show that Mental Toughness is a major factor in:

  • Performance – explaining up to 25% of the variation in performance in individuals
  • Positive Behaviour – more engaged, more positive, more “can do”
  • Wellbeing – more contentment, better stress management, less prone to bullying
  • Aspirations – more ambitious, prepared to manage more risk

The MTQPlus assessment measures mindset on 8 scales: the four C’s and two additional subscales for each. We partner with AQR International who provides the psychometric.

ILM 72 Assessment

The ILM72 assessment is a reliable psychometric measure which assesses two important elements: Adopted Leadership Style and Leadership Effectiveness in terms of Leadership Behaviour

Effective leadership motivates people to give up their discretionary effort and do it willingly and enthusiastically.

For organisations, this translates in to better, more competitive performance and the development of a positive culture.  For individuals, this translates into a sense of growth, a sense of belonging and a sense of self-esteem. They are less likely to leave an organisation where leadership is evident.

With effective leadership issues such as absenteeism, poor customer service, ineffective team working and resistance to change simply evaporate.

Leadership is also a cultural issue and can be developed at all levels of an organisation. Those at the top must provide leadership …. but everyone can be a leader and play a part in motivating colleagues.

ILM72 assesses 6 elements of leadership style and 3 core behaviours of effective leadership
