We chose Insights Discovery as it provides a memorable and unique colour system to describe a person’s preferences and style. It enables people to build self-awareness and adapt to the different styles of colleagues, clients and other stakeholders.

Insights Discovery & personal growth
The Insights Discovery personal profile report ‘holds up a mirror’ for people to see themselves clearly. You complete an online questionnaire and receive a personal profile outlining preferences, strengths and areas to develop. The profile gives you a positive, engaging and transformative insight into yourself. It provides you with insight about how you lead, interact and work with others. It will ultimately assist you in building stronger and deeper relationships and optimise how you do things in all areas of your life.
How we approach it
We provide you with a written report and a verbal feedback session to assist you in understanding the key elements of your report. This is either a one-to-one or group session with colleagues, face-to-face or online . Following this you can develop a plan to optimise how you communicate, connect and lead. You can choose to do this on your own or through coaching sessions with one of our consultants. Through raising your self-awareness and effectiveness your self-confidence will flourish in all areas of your
Insights Discovery and developing teams
Know your team
Insights Discovery profiles provide a powerful basis for increasing team effectiveness, performance and morale. We use the profile so that everyone in the team can recognise their similarities and differences. Then we facilitate focused, deep, discussions about all aspects of your team, including areas such as team conflicts, productivity, motivation and acknowledging differences.
How we approach it
We develop tailored interactive 2-day workshops (or online equivalent) that assist people both to understand themselves and their team members. This will allow you and your colleagues to apply that learning directly into your specific team context. For departments we offer processes which can integrate teams into effective networks as well. For deeper issues we design processes with a number of interventions, including check-in points to review progress and re-plan.
The Insights Discovery tools and language enable teams to get to the crux of their communication, relationship and activity issues quickly and respectfully.
