Insights Discovery

Insights Discovery logo transparent

In today’s climate of global disruption, home-working and rapid change, it’s important for everyone to be adaptable and feel connected to their work colleagues. Insights Discovery builds the foundations for these emotionally intelligent capabilities – starting with self-awareness and self-understanding before moving on to understanding others, working in a virtual team and leading in today’s new workplace.

Working with Insights Discovery

Insights Discovery is a psychometric tool for personality profiling based on the psychology of Carl Jung.  It uses a four-colour personality profile model to highlight key personality preferences and behaviours, helping people better understand themselves and others.  Used for individual performance or wider team development within the workplace, this increased awareness of personal preferences enables more respectful, productive and positive working relationships, even across virtual boundaries.

By working with Insights Discovery personal profiles we can understand our individual perception of the world, improve self-awareness and enhance our ability to communicate, motivate and lead those around us. Now, more than ever, we can leverage awareness of our own Insights Discovery colour energy preferences to enhance our virtual communication, leading and working in teams.

Flexing our preferred personal style to accommodate others’ preferences enables us to lead, support and motivate others through the current uncertainty and changes ahead.

Now available as virtual, interactive workshops, LifeForward offers individual, team and leadership training, working with Insights Discovery personal profiles. 

At LifeForward we use Insights Discovery in our workshops and one-to-one executive coaching as a tool to develop self-awareness and understanding. Insights Discovery® is a practical and visual model which builds on Carl Jung’s 8-type wheel to describe preferences in terms of colour energies.

It allows people to easily recognise and understand differing personality styles and preferences and provides a common language for adapting and improving communication, teamwork and leadership capabilities.

The use of four colour energies – Fiery Red, Sunshine Yellow, Earth Green and Cool Blue – creates a memorable common language and framework on which participants can base their future interactions.

Once individuals and teams are familiar with the language of the four colour energies in the Insights Discovery model there are many different ways to continue the development journey. Insights Discovery offers rich and diverse content to help people enhance relationships, communication and the connectivity, essential to high-performance. It also offers a clear framework for leadership development, providing the opportunity to explore leadership strengths and areas for development, as well as the opportunity to develop key emotional competencies such as self-management, influencing others, empathy and managing conflict. 

Building on the Insights Discovery personal profile, and using the Insights evaluation, the Insights Discovery Transformational Leadership profile is a personalised leadership profile that provides leaders with information about how they perform across eight essential leadership dimensions as well as an overview of their leadership approach.
