Take and explore the Career Strengths: Values self-discovery profiling questionnaire to find out more about your work values and emotional quotient scores.
Our values are what drive our actions. These are the principles or beliefs that we hold as important in our lives. Because these are important to us, our values will not only play an important part in our choice of our careers, but will also influence the decisions we make at work as well as how we make them. Your values also give you a deeper purpose to your life.
The Career Strengths: Values profile helps you explore your following work values: Challenge, Expertise, Income, Innovation, Leadership, Learning, Lifestyle, Relationships, Security, Service. The profile also explores your work values of Compliance vs Control, and Teamwork vs Self. Based upon these dimensions, you can explore your strengths as a Follower, Supporter, Leader or Pioneer.
Another important workplace skill is our emotional and social intelligence, or also known as our Emotional Quotient (EQ). Our EQ is an indication of how good we are at understanding ourselves and other people, especially emotions and social interactions. Having high EQ awareness will help us to greatly advance in our career and achieve success in life.

The DISC behavioural system is a popular personality profiling tool which describes your four categories of behavioural traits of Dominance (D), Inducement (I), Submission (S), and Compliance (C). The profile measures the way you think, feel, and act. These in turn affect your relationships with others.
- Dominance: This relates to your drive, control, power and assertiveness.
- Inducement: This relates to your influence in social situations and communication.
- Submission: This relates to your steadiness, patience, persistence and thoughtfulness.
- Compliance: This relates to your caution, conscientiousness to structure and organisation.
The DISC system has many uses such as character and leadership development, team building, conflict resolution, sales training, customer service, communication, career coaching, and others. To be effective in our work and relationships, we need to understand different DISC styles and use them according to the situational needs.

The (VACL)2 Thinking & Learning Styles questionnaire is designed to measure your thinking and learning preferences using your responses to various scenarios.
Learning is the construction of knowledge from information through thinking. To get the best out of any learning therefore, we need to identify the right tools for the task of knowledge building. Moreover, we need to learn how to use these tools in order to maximise their potential.
Each of us has different innate preferences and skills in terms of our learning and thinking tools. The (VACL)2 Thinking & Learning Styles self-discovery questionnaire will provide you with a measure of your learning styles along the four preferences of Visual (diagrams), Verbal (text), Auditory (sound), and Action (kinaesthetic) learners. It will also help you explore your different thinking styles of Concrete vs. Creative thinkers, and Linear vs. Lateral thinkers.
The trick to mastery of learning is to understand when and how best to apply each style according to the situational needs. The report will provide you with many powerful and practical strategies for effective learning and communication using the different thinking and learning domains.
Some people might have very strong preferences in one domain, while others may be more evenly balanced. There is no one best style to have, nor is there any particular advantage of having any one style. The best way to use the knowledge and understanding of your thinking and learning styles is to equip you with a wide repertoire of available strategies to choose from to match the needs of a situation, while being aware of your strengths and potential weaknesses in using those strategies.
