How Does the HAB Work?

The method begins with the online ability assessment. You will complete a collection of timed performance-based work samples that objectively measure your natural talents. There are 18 abilities measured plus a vocabulary component. It takes about three hours and can be completed at home.

What Do the Reports Show?

For career explorers, the HAB reports include a list of potential jobs for which you would be well-suited. For career developers, the assessment reports include information about roles and responsibilities that complement your profile.

But the real magic lies in the talents revealed. Some of your talents could be specialized, like a gift for music, design, or theoretical thought; others will be specific to the environments, communication methods, and roles where you would thrive.

With our ability assessment, you will clearly see how to capitalize on your strengths. That means you can begin to make informed decisions and transform your career.

Steven J. Chen, Ph.D. is a Highlands Certified Consultant who can help!


When you work with a Steven, he will show you how to take the HAB, interpret your reports, and help you understand how to align your natural abilities with other factors—like your life experience, your values, and your interests. These factors and your abilities together create a model of your whole self, which is not an easy thing to assess on your own.

The Highlands Whole Person Method is an investment in yourself, and it WILL lead to a better understanding of your natural talents, and to a more rewarding career. Take the next step. Contact us today:
