STUDENTS use the Battery to make clear decisions on college majors and schools. 

The Highlands Ability Battery is a three-hour online assessment taken on a desktop or laptop. 

The Battery helps identify your unique and natural abilities and assist you in determining how you learn, solve problems, and view the world. When you finish the Battery, you will get two reports, one report of your core abilities, including a bar chart showing your scores as percentiles.

The second report is a Career Supplement that links your abilities to careers with descriptions and projected salaries.

When older high school students, college students, and recent graduates work with Gail they are given a set of tools that help them understand how they are hardwired and where they may thrive in school and career. These young adults can see what they are truly good at and help them decide on college majors, first jobs, and to overcome school or job “option overload.”

ADULTS use the Battery when making a career change, or seeking employment.

The HAB results apply to every stage of life. The results never expire either. The career assessment reveals natural talents, which allows you to see the work world through new eyes. Those who may feel “stuck” in a job, can find new, exciting ways to approach their current position or feel equipped to explore new jobs. It’s about self-discovery and job happiness.

LEADERS use the Battery to link your abilities to other factors that influence your career.

Gail has even more to offer business leader clients or employees. As always, the HAB for leaders uncovers natural abilities, but also how one interacts with others, makes
decisions, and, in a word, leads. It’s a truly transformational tool for any business owner, manager, or c-level professional.

CORPORATIONS use the Battery to link your abilities to other factors that influence your career.

As a component of a professional team building program, training curriculum, hiring package, or even a special program for organizations undergoing downsizing, the Highlands Whole Person Method is customizable to meet the unique situation of any organization. Consultant training includes guidelines for both individual and group feedback sessions.
