Change happens, but it does not have to control us. An organization can learn to harness the power of change and achieve greater success, but only with an accurate assessment and implementation of authority, responsibility, and power. The ARP Inventory is the key to assessing our attitudes towards authority, responsibility, and power.

The Authority Responsibility Power profile (ARP) is designed to identify the levels of authority and degrees of responsibility assumed by an individual. In addition, bases of perceived power are ranked according to individual preferences. The results will help show how you view yourself relative to others, your willingness to assume responsibility, the types of power which are most desirable to you. The ARP will also identity the potential amount of power you create when interacting with others.
Knowing how you present yourself , how you respond to and create power is useful in:
  • Your own self-development
  • Understanding others
  • Leading a more productive personal and professional life
  • Developing your leadership capacities
  • Creating transforming power
  • Interacting more effectively in groups
  • Becoming more valuable to your community in particular and society in general
The ARP Inventory is online. Participants can take the assessment online and have their scores and all supporting feedback materials presented to them immediately upon completion of the assessment. Pre-approved customers can take the ARP Inventory online by proceeding to the Customer Entrance. If you are not pre-approved, please contact us.
Group Surveys are available, as are paper-pencil versions in English, French, German, and Italian. If you are interested in the ARP Inventory, please feel free to contact us.
Pathways to Power. The ARP Inventory determines a relative authority and responsibility score for each participant. These scores are presented in graph form with authority as one axis and responsibility as the other. Each quadrant of this graph presents it"s own unique character. By identifying where we stand we can take purposeful action to increase our authority, expand our responsibility, and enhance our ability to create power.
