Take the free Core Values Index (CVI™) assessment

Discover Your Innate Core Values

Dan Cox (Executive Coach and Master Var)

The Core Values Index is the only assessment to showcase the core motivational drivers that dictate performance. These drivers dictate the behaviors and desired work that develop self-esteem, causing people to subconsciously seek work where they can make their highest contribution.

  • Companies using the CVI rate 95% of their hires as Top Performer.

  • The CVI reveals a precise "recipe" for the ideal candidate for any open role. You wouldn't bake cookies with only 1 teaspoon of sugar when you need a cup, so why hire a candidate who has only 12 points of Builder when you need 20?

  • Only 20% of hires made without the CVI rate as Top Performers, supporting the Gallop opinion that 80% of workers are disengaged.

  • The CVI has a 97.7% repeat-reliability score, higher than any other assessment.

  • The CVI reduces time and expense on the HR side, immediately ranking candidates so HR staff can start with those who fit best first.

  • The CVI removes the guesswork about whether or not a candidate will be a good fit for the work of the job.

  • The CVI contains no self-reporting and no uncomfortable claims for a person to make. The temptation to fib is removed.

  • The CVI cannot be rigged or present a false-positive (because it’s all word choice).

  • The CVI contains only positive values, nothing negative, so users feel good taking it.

  • The CVI is fast - just 10 minutes to complete.

  • The CVI is the only assessment to align the work (tasks) of a job with innate nature for maximum productivity and meaningful contribution.

  • Companies using the CVI have lower turnover and higher productivity and job satisfaction from their employees.

Lynn Taylor explaining the uniqueness and importance of the CVI™

“Show me who I really am and I will do something meaningful with my life.”
— Lynn E. Taylor, Lift


The difference between the CVI™ and other tools is the CVI™ measures innate preference (suitability) rather than ability or adaptability. It identifies what fulfills someone about the work they do, rather than whether or not they are capable of the work. Resume review and skills-testing take care of the capability component. The CVI™ handles the critical suitability component.

The CVI has a 97.7% repeat-reliability score, higher than any other assessment.

When Dr. Melodye Hilton first introduced us to Lynn Taylor’s CVI™ in 2016 we were deeply impacted by the full extended report and its application in our lives, marriage and organization of the staff at the University and Ministry. It was clear to us that this was something each student or person needed to know in order to better understand and live a fulfilled life in our sphere of influence in society. In 2017 we were able to offer “Discover your Innate Core Values” in Spanish with the help of Dr. Melodye Hilton and other resources from Taylor Protocols in our University. The amazing team of translators and editors of the University did an amazing job! The students loved the “Discover your Innate Core Values” (CVI™) course and many wanted to get trained and certified as VARS. A program Lynn Taylor has developed that trains you to explain and use the CVI in your Coaching, Consulting etc.

In February 2018, we were personally trained by Lynn Taylor as Master VARs, so the University for Societal Architecture could now offer the Spanish Practitioner and VAR Certification for those interested to take this knowledge and its application to a whole new level. A first in Spanish and the history of Taylor Protocols and the University for Societal Architecture!
