Only 21% of employees consider themselves engaged (Gallup Global Engagement Survey) A lack of engagement can impact, among other things, productivity, profitability, staff and customer retention, absenteeism, and safety records. Increasing engagement among your people is one of the best ways we can help you address your business challenges.
36% of leadership development practices are below average Almost 90% of business leaders say that leadership is their main organisational challenge, but less than 10% feel they’re ready to address the leadership capability gap. Highly self-aware leaders are seen as more effective than those who have poor self-awareness. By addressing self-awareness first, we help leaders to see themselves more clearly, where they are thriving, where they are challenged and where they are just adequate.
A staggering 70% of respondents cite being part of a dysfunctional team Individuals within highly cohesive teams have a strong sense of belonging, feel safe to speak up and have a regular cadence of giving and receiving feedback. This creates an environment where there is less conflict within the team and a much greater engagement.
Insights Discovery is a psychometric tool based on the psychology of Carl Jung. The tool is built to help individuals understand themselves, understand others, and make the most of their relationships in the workplace.
The Insights Discovery methodology uses a simple and memorable four colour model to help individuals understand their leadership style, strengths, and the value they bring to the team. We call these the colour energies, and it's the unique mix of Fiery Red, Sunshine Yellow, Earth Green, and Cool Blue, which determines how and why people behave the way they do.
Insights Discovery enables you to create a working environment to support your preferred communication style and learning preferences. This tool can assist with making your decisions on recruitment, onboarding, retention, and succession planning.

To be effective at work, there are four actions employees must take to remain productive. Below are considered the key ingredients for success at work, and the steps you should take to achieve effectiveness in your career.
It starts with exploring and discovering yourself. What makes you tick? When are you most productive? How do you get through a long day of tasks? Answering all these questions and understanding how you work in a range of environments helps you to remain effective.
Learning how to adapt your behaviour to interact more effectively with others is crucial. How do you conduct yourself in meetings? How do you present yourself to your manager? If there’s conflict in the office, what do you do to develop a resolution?
Within the workforce, it’s important to recognise and learn how to appreciate others' differences. Finding ways to construct solutions that benefit both parties and ensuring that you’re respecting everyone’s perspectives, leads to higher performance in the workplace.
Once you have developed an understanding of yourself, your colleagues, and their points-of-view, it’s time to put your learnings into practice, implement your findings and discover how you can become more effective in the workplace.
