Know yourself to lead yourself

Insights Discovery is a world leading diagnostic tool that helps people understand themselves and others.

It starts with a simple and memorable model which explains your behaviour. 

Insights Discovery

The Insights Model

At its most simple, Insights identifies 4 behavioural preferences.  We are a mix of all 4 and can dial up any of them.  However, we tend to have a preference for a couple. 

  • Fiery Red: “Do it now” - focused on action, results and action. 
  • Sunshine Yellow: “Do it harmoniously” - focused on sociable, engaging and being enthusiastic
  • Earth Green: “Do it together” - focused on calm, harmonious and listening
  • Cool Blue: “Do it right” - focused on precision and accuracy.  

 

Good day and bad day behaviours

Each of the colour preferences have their good and bad behaviour days.  The good day behaviours are the gifts and talents which you bring to the team and demonstrate resourcefulness.  The bad day behaviours arise when any of these preferences are overused.  It tends to be people in the opposite colour preference who first notice the bad day behaviours.

Team Collaboration and Effectiveness

Self-awareness and excellent communication are the foundations of team collaboration. 

When everyone in the team understands the common language of Insights Discovery it allows them to communicate what they mean without people taking offence. 

Teams are in stronger place to have healthy conflict and debate ideas in a safe and trusting environment.   This leads to better idea generation and commitment as all team members are heard.

Stronger communication skills mean the team is more likely to provide feedback – both positive and developmental – as well as hold each other accountable if commitments are not delivered.  It is no longer just the task of the manager to have feedback and accountability conversations. 

The ability to have the right conversation with the right person on the right topic is the quickest way to develop team and organisational culture. 

 

People need easy solutions

Insights Discovery is an easy approach and can be applied into any organisation.   There is no series of letters to be remembered or complicated code.  It is based on a colour model with each colour matching up with a specific type of energy.   Organisations often report that this is the one workshop where the learnings are taken back into the workplace and acted upon months and years later.  The approach is so straight forward it is easy to use.

Insights can be delivered in a number of ways and can tie into any number of team building activities.   It can also be linked to customer service programmes, leadership development, management development, sales training, team building, change management and difficult conversations.
