PRISM is the world’s most comprehensive neuroscience based behavior profiling instrument.
It has been specifically designed to identify the behavioural preferences that directly relate to interpersonal relationships, leading to increased wellbeing and work performance.
PRISM’s extensive personal reports show not only people’s natural or instinctive behaviour preference, but also the extent to which they modify or adapt their preference on occasions to respond to what you see as demands of specific situations e.g. their job.
The reports also indicate where individuals may be overdoing or not making full use of their preferences. This insight also helps them to understand more about their true potential, as well as what may be hindering them from achieving even higher performance.
The remarkable complexity of the human brain has shown that human beings cannot credibly be divided up into a fixed number of types or groups of people who are unable to act outside of their preferences. PRISM does not, therefore, label people or fit them into ‘boxes’, nor does it have ‘scores’, or right or wrong answers. Instead it provides users with a powerful graphic explanation for why they approach situations and individuals in different ways.
Each PRISM ‘map’ is therefore, a picture of the user as a unique individual.
Because PRISM is based on perception, it is obvious that if perceptions change, behaviour will change too. The dynamic interaction between perception of self and the environment explains why an individual may behave differently from one situation to another.
Now used by some of the world’s leading businesses, PRISM applications include:
Recruitment • Team building • Leadership development • Sales training • 360 degree feedback • Job benchmarking • Conflict resolution • Diversity training • Customer service • Performance management • Succession planning • Communication skills • Emotional Intelligence profiling
PRISM provides three distinct profiles, or ‘maps’, of a person’s behaviour: how he or she naturally prefers to behave (Underlying); the extent to which he or she feels it necessary to modify that behaviour (Adapted) on occasions to achieve key objectives, and the overall pattern of behaviour (Consistent) that he or she tends to use for most of the time [Click here to see sample profile maps].
In addition to the eight behaviour dimension maps, PRISM generates a 20+ page personalised report which identifies and measures 26 key aspects of work
preference [Click here to view a sample ‘Professional’ Report].
PRISM can also provide an analysis of a person’s Emotional Intelligence (EQ) preferences and a summary of his or her ‘big five’ personality traits. This is one of the most widely accepted and used models of personality.
In addition to profiling individuals, PRISM can also produce job requirement benchmarks against which candidates can be assessed in terms of behavioural suitability. It also has the ability to be used as a 360-degree feedback tool to include generic or in-house competencies.
It can create team maps and match a team with a team benchmark. It also has a team strengths measurement facility which measures a team’s performance as well as the quality of inter-personal relationships within the team [Click here to see sample extracts from the Team Performance Indicator].
