Perform better with Compass Behavioural Indicators

Join the thousands of people who are using Compass behavioural indicators to raise their performance and become highly effective.

About Compass

Developed by the global business services firm Shirlaws, Compass indicators have been designed to explore leadership team dynamics. Through understanding individual styles, we can explore the corresponding impact on communication, leadership and decision making across the business. Through the deployment of Compass, clients develop the ability to make better business decisions and operate more effectively. 

Through describing your fundamental behaviours in a management/business context and by mapping and understanding where you are now, you can use the tools to help you navigate your future path.

The indicators are designed to be behavioural tools not personality profiles (like many of the profiling tools on the market). As part of the Shirlaws network we are licensed to deploy the indicators and coach clients to use them.

For Teams

The compass behavioural indicators are often used to understand communication in a team environment. Each team member receives a bespoke report, through analysing individual’s traits you can improve group communication, reduce friction and create development plans. These indicators have been used across teams of directors, departments and businesses globally with great success.

For Individuals

Whilst the indicators are most powerful when used in the context of a team, you can use these reports to explore how you operate. This allows you to make positive work/life changes and also understand how you communicate and are received by others.


Single indicator – £45 (TFK, Pace, ELM or Risk)

Suite of 4 indicators – £90

Facilitation Day

To get maximum benefit from the indicators, we recommend running a dedicated session with a trained facilitator/coach. They will spend a day or half a day (depending on numbers) with your team to analyse the reports and explore what this means for your communication, decision making and performance.
