Occupational Personality Appraisal (OPA)

Occupational Personality Appraisal

Personality At Work

The OPA provides a broad perspective of a person’s personality, and is useful in discovering potential, assessing suitability as well as identifying developmental needs.

Whether your goal is Recruiting Talent, Developing People, Cultivating Leaders or Building Teams, the OPA is an invaluable tool that will help you achieve these objectives.

OPA Frameworks

Big Five Model

The OPA describes personality based on the Five Factor Model, a well established and widely accepted framework that describes normal human personality along five broad dimensions.

The Five Factor Model has been extensively researched in the organisational and workplace contexts, linking it to important
occupational outcomes.

LEADRE Competency Framework

In addition, the OPA serves as a measure of key leadership competencies using our proprietary Leadership Competency Framework (LEADRE). 

These leadership competencies have been found to be relevant and appropriate to work, education or settings where leadership competencies are required.
