Understanding ESI Reports for Individuals
So you've played the game, and seen your free in-app scores, but what deeper insights does the ESI Reporting suite give you?
Even at an individual level, each of the 9 skills and traits measured can tell you so much no matter whether you are a business leader, or an employee.
For instance, if you scored low for personal control, this could mean that for any new idea you find it challenging to see how you can personally impact its potential success, feeling you have little power.
That has big implications depending on your role in an organisation!
Accessing my ESI Report

We've compiled this handy article that explains what a report contains from direct development ideas, to insights comparing your scores to the index scales.
How can I use my ESI Report?
Your first step is to review our Entrepreneur's Journey Guide which highlights the measures most important to you depending on your stage of business, or whether you are employed.
The tool is designed to be used across many different people and organisations, and so it's important to consider your personal context.
There is no such thing as a 'bad' ESI score or type!
It really all depends on whether you are, or want to be, specialist vs. generalist, and technical vs. creative. There is a balance between what we are expected to do, and what we would personally prefer to do.
Choosing a development pathway
Once you've accessed and digested your report you may decide to come up with an action plan for personal development.
What is most important to you will depend on the personal context we mentioned earlier, and whether you want to simply improve aspects of your skills & traits, lean on your neighbouring strengths in an existing role, transform your capabilities or step back within your comfort zone.
Our handy help guides cover support on:
- Understanding the different scoring elements
- Understanding the ESI capability model
- A framework for deciding your personal development
