What are our students learning? What do they retain over time? Hay Group’s work has particular relevance to academics and educators wanting to develop the whole person. In particular, our expertise in emotional intelligence and learning styles can be applied to help both students and teaching staff learn and work more effectively as individuals and teams.
Because they are grounded in long-term, quantitative research and applied every day in schools and colleges the world over, we know our tools are reliable and effective. They are used predominantly at undergraduate and post-graduate level, and in professional development.
"My Executive MBA program students participated in the HayGroup ESCI, and the results were fantastic! The evaluation feedback I received from the students on the combined workshop and ESCI results was among the highest I have ever received in over 16 years of teaching at the college level. One student wrote that the ESCI “will be more important in my career progression than several finance courses combined.” Thanks to the HayGroup for designing a really valuable 360 tool on Emotional and Social Intelligence. I can’t recommend it enough." --- John Krajicek, Executive Professor, Mays Business School, Texas A&M University
" I use the Kolb LSI in my graduate course on Experiential Learning. The LSI is one of the most thoughtfully designed style assessments that I have used, and the feedback it provides is intriguing and highly useful in teaching, learning, teamwork, and problem solving scenarios." - Ed Osborne, Professor and Chair, Department of Agricultural Education and Communication, University of Florida
"We have used the Kolb Learning Style Inventory in conjunction with our Leadership Development programs from a number of years. While the paper version of the instrument met our needs just fine, we recently migrated to the online version and found it to be a terrific enhancement. The online version makes it even easier for individuals taking the assessment and saves considerable time on the backend when using the assessment data for research purposes." - Melvin L. Smith, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Organizational Behavior, CASE, Weatherhead School of Management
