Self-awareness isn’t one of those big marquee leadership qualities like vision, charisma, strategic thinking or the ability to speak eloquently to an audience the size of a small city... but it’s a quieter ancillary quality that enables the high-octane ones to work. To use a chemistry concept, it’s a psychological catalyst.

Nine Lions Inc. is a proud partner of TTI Success Insights® (TTI SI), the world’s leading developer of research-based, validated behavioral assessments that enable organizations to use the Science of Self™ to reveal and harness the talent and skills of their greatest asset – their people.

Science of self™ behaviors

Success in life, work, and relationships stems from understanding and having a sense of self – of deeply comprehending who you are, what you do, and how you do it. The research-based, validated TTI Success Insights assessment we use at Nine Lions Inc. measures Behaviors in four behavioral dimensions using the DISC theory. DISC measures Dominance, Influence, Steadiness, and Compliance and was first developed by William Moulton Marston. Our Behaviors/DISC assessment is key in helping people understand HOW they behave and their ability to interact effectively with others in work and life, as well as how they respond to the following:


• Problems and challenges

• Influencing others

• Pace of environment

• Rules and procedures

Science of self™ DRIVING FORCES

Whereas Behaviors illustrate the HOW of our actions and decision-making, Driving Forces explain the WHY behind our actions and passions. 12 Driving Forces, based on Eduard Spranger’s theory of human motivation, are the windows through which an individual views the world. These intrinsic motivations explain the key driving forces about someone’s on-the-job performance and why they act a certain way. TTI Success Insights’ assessments measuring 12 Driving Forces examine the relative prominence of six basic interests (or ways of valuing life) and include:


• Knowledge - The discovery of truth

• Utility - Money and what is useful; ROI

• Surroundings - Form and harmony

• Others - An inherent caring for people; helping others

• Power - Personal power, influence and renown

• Methodologies - A system for living

It’s easy to get started.
