Insights discovery

Welcome to a transformative journey that will revolutionise your school's leadership dynamics. Our cutting-edge service harnesses the power of Insights Discovery® psychometric profiling to inspire, unlock hidden strengths, foster effective leadership, and empower your teams to build effective working relationships.


What is Insights Discovery®?

Insights Discovery is a psychometric tool based on the psychology of Carl Jung.  Using a simple 4-colour model it can help us to understand our own and other’s individual styles, preferences, behaviours and the value each person brings to the team.

By understanding how you see yourself and others you can learn to make better connections with them and work more efficiently and effectively.

What does your colour say about you?

How does the Insights Discovery® service work?

Schools, settings and trusts can access the Insights Discovery profiling through individual coaching or a team workshop.  Each participant will receive a personalised report which will help them understand their behavioural and communication preferences, recognise differences in others and perform at their highest level.  

Used as part of a one-to-one coaching programme, Insights Discovery® can help people create a tailor-made development plan. Key chapters of the Insights Discovery® Personal Profile include:

  • The personal strengths, developmental ‘watchouts’ and value of an individual within a team
  • Management guidance - how an individuals’ preferences helps them to manage and be managed more effectively
  • Preferences on personal communication and how to interact with others
  • Suggestions on creating and sustaining the ideal working environment

I can highly recommend doing Insights Discovery, either as an individual or as a team. I did this in September 2021 and really found out a lot about myself and how I am preserved by others. I extended this to my SLT and found how we could complement each other within the team and what we would be looking for when appointing new members of staff.  It has made me more reflective and approach tasks in school in a different way. Insights Discovery has led me to a path of finding out more and taking on more academic reading and research.

My profile describes me well. The Insights Discovery® workshop made me think about how I interact with others, knowing that they have different traits to me and if my approach could be modified.

Paul Delamaine, Acting Head, Hailey Hall School

Our working environment felt different after our Insights Discovery® workshop, and we have a better appreciation of each other’s preferences in terms of behaviour.

Operations Manager, Hertfordshire School

We have a good team but were clashing with each other – since the Insights Discovery® workshop everyone is feeling much better and able to more closely.
