Psychometric Thoughts


Myers Briggs vs Discovery Insights

MBTI and DISC have been around for a long time and are both used in many countries. Both use the same underlying personality theory from Carl Jung, the Swiss Psychologist. However, they apply it in different ways which can divide opinions on their use.

Personally we think both are great but our own view is that MBTI is better suited to one-to-one coaching or mentoring, where the issues spill into homelife. We think DISC works better in groups and corporate situations due to it's ease of understanding and it's focus on the difference between the natural you and the variation of you that you take to work.

Strengths Deployment Inventory, Motivation

Strengths Deployment Inventory

This is one of our favourite tools and not used half as much as it should be. It's based on "Relationship Awareness Theory" which has been around since the 1950s. What we love about this tool is that it is super easy to remember as it involves colours and only three of them. For fast paced corporate folks, that's a winner right there.

The profile report itself looks at what your motives are when things are going well and in contrast when we're under pressure or stress. This is indicated by a line showing the level of shift in these two situations. The tool also provides great insight into managing others and relationships by "borrowing behaviour" from other types to enhance relationships.

What people say about us.

  • I can't believe the transformation in myself in just three days. Even my kids have noticed the changes in me......for the better. Thank you for all you support and encouragement!

    JayneElectrical Retailer
  • I've been on lots of these tree hugging courses before, but I can honestly say this was the best and by far, most useful course I've ever attended. Hope to see you again!

    GeoffPharmaceutical Research
  • I was really apprehensive about attending the programme, but I can't believe it went so quick! I didn't want to leave it was that enjoyable. Hats off to Andy and the team, just brilliant!

    AmandaProfessional Services
  • The one to one coaching has done more for my career in six months than in the last 15yrs. I can't thank you enough. There is now a little Andy that lives in my head acting as my guide!

    MartinSmall Research Business
  • I've used countless training companies before, but none have come close to the level of rigor and effort you put into your programmes. I look forward to a great working friendship.

  • Our conferences are normally in swish hotels abroad where we are wined and dined. I would trade them everytime for another couple of days with you guys doing the activities in the woods. It was so much more useful!

    JustineCosmetics Distributor
  • I don't like change and I can be a stubborn git when I feel like it. Never has anyone told me to my face and done it in a way that totally made me want to change. Either you're a magician or an alien! Thanks again!

    TrevorMechanical Engineering Manufacturer
  • Thank you for a wonderful few days. It was great to meet new colleagues, break down those international silos and to learn a few things about myself too. Hope you'll do something in Germany soon!
