Hogan and Experd Consulting, an Indonesian authorized distributor of Hogan personality assessments, sponsored and participated in the International Coaching Federation’s Jakarta chapter’s International Coaching Week. Focusing on the theme “Reimagine the Future,” the event was held from May 16 through May 22, 2022. Eileen Rachman, CEO and founder of Experd Consulting, and Krista Pederson, managing director of Asia Pacific for Hogan Assessments, presented a 90-minute virtual session, “Personality Assessment–Based Coaching: Coaching the Dark Side.”
During the session, Rachman described how the Hogan Development Survey (HDS) examines the dark side of personality. She explained why coaching strategic self-awareness is important and why understanding the dark side is essential for performance improvement and success. Rachman pointed out that anchoring coaching with good data creates a solid foundation for the coaching session, and this can be achieved with a well-validated personality assessment.
Pederson followed up by sharing several coaching case studies involving the HDS. She described a process for increasing strategic self-awareness, targeting specific behaviors, and supporting incremental changes in coaching leaders. The coaching sessions eventually led to measurable improvement in performance for each leader, showing the power of a good tool in the hands of a competent coach and willing coachee.
Rachman and Pederson’s session was well attended and highly interactive, with nearly 180 participants and many questions throughout the presentation. The presenters also held a Q&A session at the end and shared how coaches in Indonesia could attend Experd’s Hogan certification workshop to begin using the HDS in their coaching practices.
The International Coaching Week is an event held by ICF’s Jakarta chapter to enable global organizations, participants, and coaches to share their perspectives and best practices in coaching, and to encourage communication, collaboration, and shared learning.
