Insights Discovery

Which are you - fiery red, sunshine yellow, earth green or cool blue? Learn how a unique colour language can optimise the way you work.

Why Insights?

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

Insights Discovery is a well-known profiling tool that provides lively and deep development for individuals, teams and organisations. People find it engaging and effective, as it uses a memorable and unique colour system which is easy to understand. As they use it more they find greater depth and richness to really understand what drives them and their colleagues. It is used by many organisations globally and locally; Google, BP, Microsoft, Phillips, Deutsche Bank, ebay, Merck, Standard Bank, Pick-n-Pay and Woolworths.

Insights also provides tools to drive effectiveness in teams, departments and organisations. We use it from helping one individual to know themselves better and right through to assisting whole businesses  transform their culture.

Insights Discovery & personal growth

Unlock your potential

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, sell and work with others. Once you reflect on your results you can develop as an individual, professional or leader. 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. Following this you can develop a plan to tap into your natural strengths more, or manage less-preferred approaches more effectively. You can choose to do this independently or through coaching sessions with one of our consultants. Through raising your self-awareness and increasing your effectiveness your self-confidence will flourish in all areas of your personal and business life.

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 which the colour language enables. We find that the colours assist teams to find constructive ways forward in areas such as team conflicts, productivity, motivation and acknowledging differences.

How we approach it

We develop tailored interactive 2-day workshops that assist people both 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.

Insights Discovery for engaging cultures

Understanding people in your organisation is the first step to improving engagement and creating a positive culture. We use Insights Discovery to kick-start the process.
