First, we would like to give you a little further background on Cloverleaf. We take your data extremely seriously and have built an entire platform that relies on the accuracy of the coaching insights that you receive.

You own your data, you choose who can see it by accepting invites to organizations and teams, managing your coaching network, and adjusting your privacy settings.

Assessment results aren't good or bad, there is no right or wrong answer to questions. Results to these assessments are meant to provide a mirror to our own behaviors, tendencies, and strengths. The goal is self-awareness- a key first step in improved performance.

A key tenant for Cloverleaf is transparency. Transparency is a key element to developing trust and psychological safety for you and your team. This transparency may have been abused in the past, or maybe you are worried it will be abused this time, but we have created other controls to make sure your differences are celebrated and not used as a reason to exclude or penalize.

The product experience you get with Cloverleaf reinforces the value of diversity, of you as an individual through both content and in-app user experience. Our content is written with a positive action-oriented focus. You will never hear that something is wrong with you, rather only how to improve on your strengths. Product visualizations help illustrate the value of diversity, intentionally built to build a better sense of belonging and team trust.

We work with our assessment partners to confirm validity and reliability. Then we do our own work on top of that to consider how this assessment data impacts how you experience it within the Cloverleaf platform.

Because of the amount and unique aspect of the data we collect, we can then provide our assessment partners opportunities to further enhance the validity and reliability of their assessments over time.

Lastly, we provide a ton of education for your HR, talent, and learning leaders as well as managers to ensure the data is used in a way that improves your employment experience along with organizational performance. We also work with coaches and consulting partners to help managers use the tool appropriately.

Cloverleaf is on a mission to unleash people to do their best work, and we're doing this by building thriving teams. Everything we put in our product is to help you feel energized in your workday, build stronger relationships and go home proud of the work you get to do.

Validity and Reliability

Here are a few resources on how we develop our materials and ensure we use assessments that are tested for validity and reliability to make sure we are helping to create a culture of communication and inclusion.

Here you will find our Cloverleaf Assessment Validation Summary which breaks down the theoretical background, reliability, validity, and practical utility of assessments supported by Cloverleaf.

Here are our DISC Assessment Construct Validity and 16 Types Assessment Construct Validity articles written by our Chief Research Officer, Dr. Scott Dust, if you want to dive deeper into these two assessments.

You can also check out our research page to learn about the science behind what we do at Cloverleaf.


If you have not already viewed our privacy policy, you can find that here.

We have completed our SOC 2 Type I and II audits. Cloverleaf's SOC 2 Type I report had Security, Availability, and Confidentiality in scope, and we were issued with a clean audit.

SOC 2 Type I is an audit report on the examination of controls relevant to the trust services criteria categories covering security, availability, confidentiality, processing integrity, and privacy. A SOC 2 Type I report describes a service organization's systems and whether the controls they have in place to satisfy the SOC criteria are appropriately designed as of a pre-set review date.

Privacy Settings:
Cloverleaf does exist with the intention for you to interact with your teammates. If you want your profile to be more private, the best things you can do are:

1. Set your privacy settings to Private or Limited (Learn more).
2. Manage your Coaching Network- here you can determine who you wish to receive coaching tips on, and who you will be searchable to.

Here is a guide for how to adjust your privacy settings.

As always, if you have questions- feel free to reach out to our team. Happy team building!
