When you’re working with a team, very often the trickiest aspect is getting to grips with their unique situation. Perhaps you talk with each team member to find out where the issues lie, but this can be difficult because people have different perspectives and interpretations of what’s going on, and the workplace context can be complex.
With Mirror Mirror, you can run a structured, data-driven exercise that compares what each member of the team – and the team leader – thinks and feels about the whole team situation. The data is presented in visuals so they can be shared easily. By doing so, the gaps and opportunities become clear and participants are able to see the differences between their views and views within the wider team.
Now that’s a conversation starter.
Mirror Mirror is a structured, practical, measurable, and repeatable process that allows all team members to explore where the common ground and differences are, to get more clarity and alignment, while respecting the diversity in the team.

We train seasoned professional researchers, coaches and facilitators to deploy Mirror Mirror. From capturing and codifying interview responses, ensuring the correct use of data from an IT Security and Privacy perspective, to coaching and facilitating – these are roles that require high levels of expertise.
Personality assessments are a recommended part of the process, so that participants can better understand how to connect with each other. We recommend Hogan assessments and we use approved distributor 3 Minute Mile as a default provider.
The personality assessments chosen for Mirror Mirror are:
- For all participants – the Hogan Motives, Values, Preferences Inventory (MVPI), which describes a person’s core values, and interests.
- For the Team Leader – i)The Hogan Personality Inventory (HPI) and Hogan Development Survey (HDS) – these explore his/her typical style of social behaviour; how he/she responds to increasing pressure, stress, or insecurity; and the way that he/she impacts others under such circumstances; ii) The Judgement Assessments – which describe how the leader learns, how they make decisions and how they react to feedback.
All participants receive 1:1 feedback on the assessment results.
