Standing out and succeeding in the business school classroom or pitching a new product idea or strategic plan on the job requires a high level of proficiency across a broad set of soft skills that have always been important, but are now in high demand.
A recent study by CareerBuilder.com found that 71 percent of employers value emotional intelligence over IQ. Emotional intelligence is embodied in a person’s soft skills, or how they handle themselves and relate to others. It’s not what you know or what degree you have, but how you fit into the culture. In today’s fast-paced, global economy, soft skills are critical for organizational success.
Whether we call them “soft skills,” “communication skills,” or “emotional IQ,” the bottom line is that schools want to see them demonstrated in the classroom, and employers and recruiters want to see them on the job.
Effective leaders and successful business people share a unique advantage – an awareness of their strengths and a commitment to personal and professional growth. The Reflect tool delivers that advantage, in the classroom, during the hiring process, and throughout your career.

Also known as competencies, soft skills are the important leadership skills that are not measured on standardized tests or acquired in the classroom. They embody an individual’s ability to work with others, make critical decisions, and think strategically – all factors that drive success.
It is well-documented in corporate and education settings around the world that soft skills – personal attributes that enhance an individual’s interactions, job performance, and career prospects – are important to how work gets done and how individual and organizational success is achieved.
The Reflect™ product is a personality assessment and development tool. After an individual takes the assessment, he or she receives a personalized Reflect Report that summarizes and helps them develop their leadership potential.
The Reflect™ tool is based on three academically and commercially proven world-class assessments from Hogan Assessments. Using 10 competencies defined by over 800 corporate recruiters and 40 graduate business schools as being important in the workplace, the Reflect tool helps users understand their personal and professional strengths and development areas. Those insights are turned into action items to help users grow and achieve their professional goals or take the next step in their professional education.
The Reflect™ tool helps an individual build skills that offset weaknesses and leverage strengths. For example, a person high in Innovation may provide many new ideas and concepts to a team (the positive), but might not be able to stop providing insights – even after the team has agreed to a solution (the negative). By using the Reflect tool, that individual can learn to modify his or her behavior to be more productive and develop new skills to avoid potential derailers.
