Insights Discovery® Profile also offers a very effective tool for recruiting with the aid of a personal profile that helps to understand the strenghts and the role of the applicant in the existing team before making the final recruiting decision.

The Insights Discovery learning program includes five areas of expertise for a customized learning solution:

Individual Effectiveness and customer service Improved self-understanding & communication

Insight Discovery learning system highlights the unique qualities of each person, and understands the fact that people behave differently at home and at work. The Insights Discovery Profile addresses the “work me” as a part of a team instead of the “home me”.


Insights Discovery Wheel Color Model, a tool to display different personalities

The Insights Discovery color system, based on Carl Jung’s theory of personality, makes a concrete example of the differences between personality types through the color themes. The color system makes the differences easier to understand and to remember them in everyday work.

The system also highlights the fact that none of us actually represents only one color and behavioral type, and the unique ordering of the color energies shapes the personal styles. The preference for one color energy indicates the dominant or preferred style of thinking, working and communicating.


Team Wheel as a tool for guiding the teams

Team Wheel is a helpful tool for analyzing the roles and effectiveness of a team. It can help to understand the way the team works and for example, how the management group and the rest of the organization might differ in opinions and behavioral styles. It gives an interpretation of the organizational culture, and e.g. the possible difficulties and challenges the sales team could be facing. The Insights Model helps to address the reasons behind those challenges, to understand them and this way use the information to build a more effective workplace and high achieving teams.
