Stephanie Bosch's Story

Stephanie Bosch always had a passion for understanding people, what makes them tick and the psychology behind it. In 2012 Stephanie got in touch with personality assessments and became fascinated by the possibilities of helping people to understand themselves better. Being obsessed with personal development, Stephanie quickly figured that the "normal" stuff wouldn't get her the results she wanted to achieve. Therefore, during her MSc in Global Leadership, she got in touch with dark side personalities and became a British Psychology Society registered Test User for Ability and Personality (Level A+B) as well as becoming certified for Hogan Assessments. Stephanie was hooked and decided to dive deep into the topic of dark side personality and the bright side within dark side personality.

She knows that the dark side does have cookies. She's been through this stuff herself and knows it's tough journey. It won't be easy - but so worth it! As so many of us Stephanie has always managed to sneak through and get her dark side under control. Until she became an entrepreneur. Suddenly all the strategies and coping mechanisms didn't work anymore. That's when she realised that "normal" coaching doesn't get her the results she wants to achieve. That's when she took actions to work very hard on herself - and failed quite a lot. All these failures allow Stephanie Bosch now to provide her clients with a smoother journey. She understand that the journey can't be the same for everyone and shouldn't be. Therefore she won't provide standard or multiple solutions for her clients but rather individualised, tailored approaches to get the most out of this journey for you.

Stephanie Bosch's Mission

We all have a dark side of personality. Stephanie Bosch's goal is to help executives and entrepreneurs to become more aware of themselves and become more efficient in working together to take the next step in their careers or improve their performance.

The promise for her clients: a higher level of self-awareness to successfully achieve your objectives. Through a data-driven method that's proven in science, we analyze your personality inventory and develop customized development solutions for you. You get a clearer picture of how others perceive you (your reputation). You get a clearer picture of your motives, values, and preferences. It is also important to identify potential derailers. (Derailers are performance risks shown when we are under pressure.) You'll get a clearer picture of how your behaviour changes when you are stressed or under pressure. You'll be able to become aware of these performance risks, identify triggers and manage your derailers before they become a real problem for your reputation and performance. An absolute essential for Executives who don't usually get honest feedback (anymore).

What are Bright Side and Dark Side personalities?

Start your journey of becoming more self-aware by exploring your dark side

Bright Side Personality

The Bright side personality focuses on your strengths and reputation regarding how other people perceive you in every day situations. The bright side behaviour is where we can act within our comfort zones and is the time when we can display our strengths and the best versions of ourselves.

The bright side of personality is the reason why employers hire us, work with us, like us etc. This is the side they see and who they perceive for us to be and who they think we are.

However, we tend to overuse our strengths from our bright side personalities when we are under pressure. Overusing these strengths under pressure can potentially turn into weaknesses which can lead to the occurance of your dark side personality. This suggests that there is a dark side to every bright side personality.

Dark Side Personality

Dark side behaviour arises when we are under pressure or stressed from overusing our strengths from our bright side personality. This can derail reputation, performance, and in the worst case scenario, careers.

So to be able to pay attention to these dark side behaviours beforehand and be truly reflected will enable you to pay attention to them before they become an issue or problem - for your reputation and your career.

You will be able to find out more about who you are, which strengths you should strengthen and what triggers detailers. This can lead you to becoming more efficient in your relationships, becoming a better leader and an overall success in your reputation and performance.

Relevant Management Consultancy

"I got to know her as an absolute ambitious, collaborative and great performer. She always was a highly accepted and sought after person for her colleagues. Stephanie always played her communication strength, has come across as a highly motivated and determined individual with a high level of drive and passion. Her contribution and her work results have exceeded my expectations so far. She has always made great use of her expert knowledge within projects. Furthermore, she has displayed a quick apprehension and high motivation to familiarise herself with any new matter. She has been able to stay concentrated and focused even under time pressure and in times of increased workload. I would like to work together with her at any time in the future.

Patrick B, Director Sales & Operations

"I got in touch with Stephanie during my start-up phase and experienced Stephanie as an excellent sparring-partner! We organized peer-coaching sessions for us and I was really impressed with Stephanie's skills and talents. I value her modern and unconventional attitude and her openness toward other people's thinking and individualism.

Marina O, Management Coach

"Simply loved working with Stephanie and can only recommend her. Aside from her professional and different approach to work, I got some great insights from her personality assessment. The feedback was extremely helpful and came up with an individual development plan, so I could actually use them effectively - not only for work but also personally. Would definitely work with her again."

Barabara U, Senior Manager

"Stephanie is a detail oriented, professional and hardworking individual. From day one, Stephanie hit the ground running with her enthusiasm and upbeat personality. I highly recommend Stephanie as a colleague and friend."

Sarah M, Talent Acquisition Consultant and Entrepreneur

"I know Stephanie for several years, but this time I went to her to conduct a Hogan Personality assessment.
In the beginning, I was sceptical about the value that this assessment would add, and if it will provide me with any new insights that I didn’t know before…But later I was positively surprised. The assessment can mainly assess 3 different areas: How people perceive you in general, how people perceive you under pressure, and what are your main drivers and motives. What I loved so much was the analysis & explanation that Stephanie provided later after the assessment. She showed a high level of knowledge and awareness regarding what she is speaking about, and she tried to simplify the assessment results as much as she can. She also told me how to benefit from the results of this assessment in my day to day life. She was specific, very professional but at the same time very friendly. If you are searching for a personality assessment, then I highly recommend Hogan Assessment with Stephanie."

Mohamed Hanbal - #1 Amazon Bestselling Author, Leadership & Performance Consultant & Coach, Professional Speaker


"Stephanie brings a lovely plot twist to how we’ve been experiencing leadership development so far. If you felt the need for a new perspective, one which is daring and a manifesto for self-exploration and acceptance at the same time, then wonder no more. To me, hearing Stephanie on ‘Leadership Lessons from Evil Characters’ made me reflect on the power of re-framing. It showed once more how eye opening can be to look at the familiar from new, unexpected angles. Does it take courage to accept, get closer to, explore and understand your dark side? Many of us would agree it does. But is the journey rewarding? More than any other development experience I have been through!"

Madalina Mihai - Technology L&D Solution Design Lead, Vodafone Shared Services

"Stephanie is an advocate of Neale Donald Walsch that affirme: “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone”. She act as a catalyst to dismantling our dark side and to use this hide potential to obtain spectacular results."

She was both incredibly efficient and fun to work with, and her career means she is able to call on personal experiences to empathize and illustrate her points."

Abi Carter - Director of Marylebone Cricket Club Foundation; Chair of Paddington Development Trust


"Stephanie is a true gem, helping me when I was unable to help myself. Kindly giving her time, skills and expertise to help formulate my elevator pitch, which by the way is killer now. Engage with her and you will get a refreshingly honest, quirky (in a good way) and most helpful response, plus you will never look back. Get her in your life, you’ll be glad you did"
