Insights® Discovery

Insights Discovery helps people understand themselves and their colleagues so that they can have more respectful, productive and positive working relationships – so individuals and teams can perform at their highest level.


Insights Discovery helps people to perform at their highest level by improving their understanding of themselves. This fosters more respectful, productive and positive working relationships – even in hybrid and virtual work settings. It helps them to:

  • Understand their own and others’ communication preferences.
  • Connect better with their colleagues to improve collaboration.
  • Implement a common language to help them overcome challenges and conflict.

They can then easily adapt and connect with others, which leads to workplaces where innovation, creativity and productivity thrive.


Who is it for?

Insights Discovery is for anyone who wants to understand themselves and others better, communicate more effectively, build stronger relationships, and be more successful in both personal and professional life – including:

  1. Individuals – anyone who wants to gain insights into their own personality preferences, strengths and potential areas for development.
  2. Teams – who need to improve collaboration, communication and performance. By appeciating each other's preferences and working styles, teams can function more effectively and achieve better results.
  3. Managers and leaders – managers and leaders can adapt their approach in order to motivate, engage and lead more effectively, by understanding their own leadership styles and the preferences of their team members.

Every person has all four colour energies within them, having a natural preference for some over others – these influence their motivations and behaviour. It is the combination of these energies which creates each unique personality.

By recognising and appreciating your own and others’ preferences better, you can take simple, practical actions that improve your everyday relationships.

What’s it all about?

Insights® Discovery uses a simple four-color model, along with a personalised profile and workshop led by licensed practitioners, to help people understand themselves and their colleagues better – inspiring them to think about how they act and communicate.

Each delegate completes an online evaluator. This creates their Insights Discovery Personal Profile, a powerful tool that can be used to resolve conflict, improve communication and help teams see the value of each other’s contribution at work. It provides a common language that makes it easier to identify strengths and address weaknesses, so that individuals and teams can perform at their highest level.

What will you get out of it?

When you participate in an Insights® Discovery workshop, you receive several key takeaways that can benefit you in various aspects of your life and work:

  1. A comprehensive personal profile – tailored specifically to you and based on your responses to the Insights Discovery evaluator. It includes information about your preferred style of communication, decision-making processes, potential strengths and areas where you might face challenges.
  2. Enhanced self-awareness – the profile and workshop helps to enhance your self-awareness. Identifying your own behavioural preferences and how these affect your interactions with others, can lead to more mindful and effective communication.
  3. Improved communication skills – Insights® Discovery focuses on recognising various communication styles and adapting your approach to better connect with others, leading to more effective and efficient communication in both personal and professional settings.
  4. Better teamwork – by fostering a deeper understanding and appreciation of team dynamics, team members will appreciate each other’s strengths and how these can be harnessed to enhance teamwork and reduce conflict.
  5. Conflict management – being aware of different personality types helps in anticipating potential conflicts and managing them more constructively. Knowing why certain behaviours occur can allow for more empathetic and targeted responses.
  6. Leadership insights when managing and motivating diverse teams – by identifying the different needs of team members, leaders can adjust their leadership styles to better suit each person, potentially increasing motivation and job satisfaction.
  7. Action plans – Insights Discovery sessions include action planning to help you apply what you've learned. This can involve setting specific, actionable goals for personal development, improving communication or enhancing relationships at work.

What will your organisation get out of it?
