The MBS Survey is a quick and non-threatening tool used to reflect a person’s basic communication style … their temperament.

The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. There are no right or wrong answers and there is no “best” MBS Profile Report.

The MBS Profile Report gives a general description of an individual’s temperament … the fundamental strengths of their personality.

Understanding how a person communicates, makes decisions and how that person wants to be treated is a valuable first step in establishing or improving any relationship.

When taking the survey, moving your mouse over a word will bring up a definition of that word (on most browsers).

Charles Miller, former President of AlliedSignal Aerospace – Commercial Avionics Systems, wrote in a memo introducing the Management By Strengths program to his employees:

“WHAT IS MBS? MBS is a self-assessment of our individual strengths and training to understand our communication styles, what motivates us and how we react to our work and social environment. MBS helps us to say to each other, “This is the best way to work with me and I understand the best way to work with you.” MBS supports open communication and more productive interaction.

MBS is ….
  • NOT used to put us into categories. MBS helps us to understand and use our own and others’ individual strengths.

  • NOT a test. MBS assesses strengths, not weaknesses. The are no “bad” strengths.

  • NOT used to determine pay, promotion or retention.

Many of our fellow employees will choose to wear a “shorthand version” of their individual strength profile on their badges [referring to the MBS color coded stickers]. Please, ask them about MBS. I’m sure they have a positive experience to share with you.”

You will need your company’s Account Number and Password to submit your MBS Survey.  If you don’t have one, when you hit Submit you will be taken to the Credit Card payment page. The cost of the MBS Survey is $24.00.

When a survey is processed, the resulting MBS Profile Report comes up within seconds on the screen and the data immediately flows into the MBS Online Profile Viewer.  A follow-up link will also be sent to the e-mail address that you enter at the top of the survey.

When you compare 2 people, you can click on their colored grid and more information will come up describing the person’s temperament and the best way to communicate. The online tools are free to our clients and coach participants on how to apply MBS training.
