The Discovery model is at the heart of everything we do and underpins all of our programs. By recognising and adapting to different behavioural styles, strained team dynamics can transform into respectful and productive working relationships, allowing people to perform at their highest level.
The Insights Discovery® Personal Profile is a personal and team development tool that gives individuals an engaging and transformational insight into themselves and others.
All profiles include the Foundation chapter you can add other chapters depending on your needs:
The Management chapter is the ideal companion to the Foundation chapter for those who want to increase their understanding of how they manage others and how they might prefer to be managed. It explores our Ideal Environment, Needs in Being Managed, Motivation, and Management Style.
This chapter is an ideal component for a sales training programme and an excellent coaching tool for sales managers to use with their team members. The chapter explores Before the Sale Begins, Identifying Needs, Proposing, Handling Buyer Resistance, Gaining Commitment, Follow-up and Follow-through & Sales Preference indicators.
At the core of the profile sits the Foundation Chapter which includes an Overview of Personal Style, Key Strengths & Weaknesses, Value to the Team, Communication, Possible Blind Spots, Dealing with your Difficult Person and Suggestions for Development. The Foundation chapter also includes a fascinating visual representation of where the respondent is applying themselves in each of the four colour energies.
This chapter sheds light on factors that contribute to us living our lives with a greater sense of purpose. It fits well with programmes concerning well-being and resilience, and can be useful in a one-to-one coaching programme. The chapter includes Living on Purpose, Time & Life Management, Personal Creativity, Lifelong Learning, and Learning Style.

Once a team has completed the Insights Discovery online evaluator, we are then able to create their “Team Wheel”. This allows the team to effortlessly understand:
- Possible strains and stresses between individual team members – how to adapt and connect to those ‘not like me’
- Strengths and possible weaknesses – where are we strong, what are we not doing, what could we be doing better?
- Meetings – how they can be even more effective in structure, clarity and output.
- Culture – how are our behaviours representing the team culture?
- Based on the psychology of Carl Jung
- Recognised by the British Psychological Society
- The model uses four colours to represent observable behavioural patterns
- Profiles are created through a 25-frame online evaluator
- 20-40 page Discovery personal profiles are unique to each individual
- Independently assessed and found to comply with the EFPA Test Review guidelines

“At first I was unsure of the benefits that I would take away from the leadership development programme but I was amazed at the impact it had upon both my personal and professional life. I am now able to engage with colleagues in a more open and collaborative way, reduce conflict and improve communication within my family and friendship groups. I continue to use my learnings from The Colour Works in my daily life.”
“The Colour Works has transformed our management team here at Electronic Materials – we now talk the new language of colour. We’ve realised that sometimes one splash of colour isn’t enough and that together as a team we are stronger, enabling us to support one another and deliver company success.”
“I found the insights into how we work as a team invaluable in improving our team efficiency, performance levels and the joy of working together.

“The Colour Works gave us an amazing team-building exercise for our whole organisation. It gave us all the skills to look at both professional and personal relationships and discuss with our teams and families. Our facilitator was fabulous. He made it fun and entertaining whilst providing a valuable learning experience both individually and as a team. There was a buzz in the air and the room was full of laughter.”
“Seed used The Colour Works to run our team training day. As seasoned educators and trainers, the audience was tough and initially very pessimistic. They were all converted. Feedback from the team has been phenomenal – way better than we had anticipated. What is more though, is that it has given us a language of understanding, a way of communicating and an appreciation of why we do the things we do. It really has transformed our team.”
“I thought your presentation style was pitched perfectly to deliver the overall message, and you seamlessly interweaved the stories shared by the participants. I came away motivated, inspired and armed with some tools and ideas to best support those around me in the year ahead. “
