Personal Assessment through Harrison Assessments

Harrison Assessments measures the strengths and challenges of behavioral tendencies with ONE self-assessment.

Coaches, advisors and support staff gain the ability to help students truly get to know themselves and provide a dialogue in order to drive new levels of meaningful connection and change.

The online assessment, which takes less than 30 minutes to complete, measures 175 factors including task preferences, motivations, work environment preferences, interests, and interpersonal preferences.

The data collected generates a multitude of reports which are invaluable to students as they focus on becoming more self-aware and developing toward a fulfilling life and career.

Personal Coaching through a Narrative-Based Approach

The coaching process enables students to participate as collaborators, deepening their awareness and ability to articulate their story to prospective employers.

The potential for transformation as a college student is ignited as scripts are updated and they proactively navigate the territory between graduation and gainful employment with more skill, confidence and purpose.

Individual narrative-based coaching sessions have been designed to help the coach/advisor meaningfully connect with the student.

Each session corresponds with a specific Harrison Assessment Report.

Personal Change through a Commitment to Action

The reality is that most students want to create a bigger future, but don’t know how to.

Today, students come to a college campus at 18 years old and think their ticket to a substantial career is created by being eligible for the position which they have been told is a college degree. What most learn along the way is that it’s just as much (if not more) about suitability (their behavior) and the relationships they create.

It’s the coach/advisors job to help the student unpack their script, embrace the things that they have learned from their script and write a new script about a bigger future.

The coach/advisor facilitates discussion about the students’ desired future so that they can document action steps resulting in personal change.
