Assessment Tools and Surveys

The CASTLE® Organizational Survey

In our research at the Secretan Center we asked people what they felt were the characteristics of ineffective relationships, whether at home or at work, in politics, religion, academia, or in our marriages, or among our families and friends. The results showed that people were typically turned off by others who were, cowardly, inauthentic, selfish, liars, rule with fear, and are incompetent. The acronym CASTLE® is the opposite.

CASTLE® Personal Survey

This free instrument will calculate your personal levels of Courage, Authenticity, Service, Truthfulness, Love, and Effectiveness—the CASTLE® Principles.

Burnout Survey

Research shows that there is an increasing confluence of workplace issues creating a perfect storm of stress and burnout. Our “always on” society, extended work hours, increased pressure for performance and doing more and more with less and less, all lead to a growing absence of spirit and well-being in our lives.  Take the free test.

The Soulscreen

Dr. Lance Secretan’s breakthrough book “Reclaiming Higher Ground” introduced the radical idea that a spiritual deficit existed within the workplace. It was the first time that a prominent thought leader in the field of leadership had proposed that the fundamental human yearning for spiritual relevance needed to be accommodated at work just as much as elsewhere in life. Take the free test.

The Vector 360º® Organizational Survey

The Vector 360º® Leadership Survey is based on Dr. Lance Secretan’s concept of Values-centered Leadership® and compares a leader’s perception of his or her operating style with the perception held by their superiors, peers, and subordinates, as well as the team as a whole.

The Vector® Personal Survey

This free instrument will provide you with a personal assessment of your Mastery, Chemistry and Delivery, and the degree to which you are growing or declining in each of these three measures.

The Bellwether Survey

Lance Secretan defines “The Bellwether Effect” (his latest book) as, “copying the business practices of those who influence group behavior” – a poor reason for decision-making. Take this free quiz to see if you are a victim of The Bellwether Effect”.

The Congruence Wheel

Whole Human Coaching®

Leadership Likability Audit

Forty percent of employees leave their companies because they can’t get along with their boss. In other words, their leaders are not inspiring, and the followers don’t like them. Given the current defection rate of employees from corporations (40% are thinking of quitting) and the difficulty employers are experiencing in recruiting talent, it might be wise for leaders to consider working on their “likability”.
