Career Path and Strength Assessments
Helping you to find the path that’s right for you is our mission. There’s little point in climbing the ladder of success if when you arrive at the top you find it’s leaning against the wrong wall! As Albert Schweitzer, the Nobel Peace Prize winner said “Success is not the key to happiness, happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful”.
Our Forward career path and strengths assessments help you work out the career paths, roles and types of organisation that best suit you. We help you to understand and to play to your strengths, core talents, personality and leadership style. Taken online, our assessments combine the usual personality/ability profiles but go deeper and beyond to reveal the understated aspects of yourself covering:
- Personality: personality type, behaviours, expressions – The WHO
- Motivation: passions, interests, values, what energises you – The WHY
- Abilities: what you have to work with (your strengths and skills, abilities which help you carry out your mission – competencies) as well as how you behave. Natural rather than learned skills – The WHAT

Career Paths FAQs
There are a range of free online career aptitude tests which have a series of questions which aim to help you learn more about yourself and identify potential career paths that are suited to you. Our Forward career assessments, personal report and follow up coaching sessions, assess your personality, your interests, your skills and combine to identify potential career options and work environments for you. Taken with our free Values assessments, you will have the self awareness, knowledge and clarity to take the right steps for you.
A career coach helps you identify, set and achieve your goals. We all achieve so much more if we are very clear about where we want to get to, but so often job searching can simply be a ‘scatter gun’ of applications.
A career coach helps you clarify your strengths, motivations, interests and skills and identify a career path(s) (which sectors, activities,) that suit you; highlight any skills you might need to develop (e.g. interviewing, networking) and works with you to develop the tools you need (e.g. CV writing) to secure a great job.
From temperament and behaviour tests (e.g. MBTI), to career aptitude and matching, to communication styles and strengths finder – these tools help build self awareness which is critical to finding the right role and path.
Yes, you would certainly benefit from career coaching if you don’t know what you want to do, which path would suit you and how you can find it. Having a career coach is the best investment you can make.
If however you know exactly what you want and how to find it, then you don’t need a career coach.
However, if there are other areas in your life that are not exactly how you’d like them e.g. money/finance, work/life balance; family/friends; health/wellbeing, then a Forward life coach can help.
