Wave Professional Styles

Professional Styles measures motives, talents, preferred culture and competency potential, all in one dynamic online questionnaire.

Wave Professional Styles personality questionnaire is used in selection, development, talent management, succession planning, leadership programs, coaching and career planning.

Wave’s unique three Deep Dives give remarkable insights into:

  • Explore the unusualness of individuals (Facet Ranges)
  • Compare motives and talents (Motive-Talent Splits)
  • Control for distortion and response-faking (Normative-Ipsative Splits)

The Wave Professional Styles Expert Report is a comprehensive report that outlines an individual’s response to the questionnaire. It features a wealth of information from Response Style, Competency Potential to Predicted Culture Environment Fit.

Line Manager and Personal Reports are available complimentary with an Expert Report, which can be used supplementary, and do not require accreditation.

In a co-validation study, Wave Professional Styles, outperformed the OPQ32i™, NEO-PI-R™, Hogan Personality Inventory™ & 16PF5™ on both work competencies & overall global measures of performance.


Higher validity enables a better prediction of performance, and a stronger return on investment.
The Expert Report can be used across all areas of the talent cycle, from identification, development and leadership.
Deep dives into motive, talent provide more valuable information into an individual to ensure the right person-job match.
