Diagnostics and Personality Optimisation


Personality Optimisation is about making the best and most effective use of our personality to achieve goals and ambitions.


Many people we meet say that for years they were being encouraged to be more assertive, more outgoing, less disorganised, etc. Many of our clients say that they struggled to meet those expectations and their confidence has suffered as a result of them often failing to meet those demands. Then they started adopting self-limiting beliefs such as “I am too shy, I am not driven enough/ I always do things last-minute/ I am not good with people” . This has led to many examples of missed opportunities, making particular choices and even un/intentionally jeopardising their chances of furthering themselves in various aspects of career, family and life.


The value of Personality Optimisation is to first understand your own, unique set of tendencies and preferences and then decide how you would like to use them moving forward. We all have a choice about how we behave, what we believe in about ourselves and what values we would like to project onto others. You can for example choose to exercise your natural preferences and flex them to meet the demands of different situations you may be facing, or you may not, but it is important to understand who you are and this approach has helped numerous amounts of our clients feel more in control. Personality Optimisations and our subsequent (psychometrics) coaching sessions offer a fresh start and an opportunity to become a person comfortable in their own skills and celebrating their own, unique personality.



All the diagnostic tools we use at Forte have been tested and validated to ensure accurate results.
