What is The Core Values Index™(CVI™)
The Core Values Index™(CVI™) is a revolutionary human assessment that provides a description of the innate, unchanging nature of an individual, which is different from personality and behavioral based assessments. This unique instrument takes ten minutes or less to complete, and provides a highly accurate and reliable picture of the core motivational drivers of any person, with an instant report, online.
The CVI is the only human assessment that uses strategic and tactical values in a forced choice format, to gain unequivocal insight into the innate nature of the person. Since the CVI is comprised of only positive values, no such negative disclosure is required, and no context is provided. The CVI provides a 94% repeat-score reliability, year over year . Other assessments typically provide reliability between 60% and 80%. This is several orders of magnitude improvement – which shows that not only are we capturing the innate, unchanging nature of people, but also that the instrument is accurate and valid.
Core motivational drivers cause a person to want to make a contribution in a certain way. This deepest, internal-self also prescribes the behaviors and work that serve to develop self-esteem, causing people to subconsciously desire a situation that offers them the opportunity to make the highest contribution possible.
The CVI has revealed a new level of understanding of human nature, at the deepest of levels and how the conscious and subconscious mind works. It is the foundation of a new way to achieve what Maslow called, full self-actualization and what we call Core Values consciousness.
The CVI provides a wonderful basis for a deep conversation in a very first meeting with someone. The person sees immediately that this is serious work, and knows what to expect in either a personal or working relationship.
The difference between the CVI and other tools is that the CVI measures innate preference (suitability) rather than ability or adaptability . It helps people focus on identifying what satisfies or fulfills them about the work they do, rather than on determining whether or not they are capable of doing the work.
