SCARF Self Assessment

This free online self assessment gives you insight into the five domains of the SCARF model, and indicates the importance each domain currently has in your life.

Understanding which of these five domains are key drivers for you increases self awareness as to why you (and others) behave as they do in certain social interactions.
Knowing more about your own reactions leads to better self regulation and gives you more options when dealing with other people.

Assesses how well your organization culturally addresses the key social needs of your people.

Many executives receive regular financial data about the fiscal health of their organizations, yet only know how their people are doing once a year during a performance review.

SCARFpulse allows the leaders in an organization to:
  • Understand the key drivers of neural engagement regularly throughout the year
  • Get real-time feedback on initiatives and events within the organization
  • Identify clear steps they can take TODAY
The SCARFpulse enables executives to manage their organizational culture from the driver’s seat, rather than the rearview mirror.

The frequency and speed of the tool is key: each member of the organization answers the same questions every few weeks giving valuable insight into how the organization is tracking around key drivers of engagement.

Executives can then access the data, with the ability to compare items such as teams, divisions, gender, age and roles across the organization.

This tells them where threat or reward are being experienced in real time – giving clear signposts for action.
