McQuaig Self Development Survey

The McQuaig Self Development Survey® is based on the The McQuaig Word Survey® which was established by Industrial Psychologist and Executive Coach, Jack H. McQuaig, in the 196o’s.

At that time, four factor models of temperament and their application in the workplace were becoming widely accepted by psychologists and managers.

Jack H. McQuaig developed The McQuaig Word Survey ® an assessment tool, based on this four factor temperament model, to be used for hiring and coaching.

The McQuaig Self Development Survey® is used to help individuals better understand themselves and highlight their talents so that they can make the most of their strengths and add greater value when working as part of a team.

The McQuaig Self-Development Survey® helps individuals explore what is holding them back from reaching their full potential and allows them to begin to take action and develop themselves through a comprehensive action planning process. The detailed action plan encourages improved performance, increased job satisfaction and greater success.

He who knows others is learned;
He who knows himself is wise.
