Core Values Index (CVI) Assessment

The CVI achieved 97.7% repeat reliability in longitudinal studies. No other psychometric assessment even comes close.

“The difference between the CVI and other tools is the CVI measures innate preference (suitability) rather than ability or adaptability. It identifies what fulfills someone about the work they do, rather than whether or not they are capable of the work.”

Hi, my name is Ian. I’m a serial-preneur, husband, father, coach and Oregonian. I received my real estate appraisal license with the intention to pay my way through my Masters of Teaching degree.

What I didn’t realize is those decisions opened up a life of entrepreneurship, teaching and coaching.  

The CVI test changed my direction, helped me harness my power and rebuild after losses.

Now, I’m spreading the word. Want to better understand your CVI results? Schedule a call with me and I’ll help you become an expert on yourself.
