It all starts with Perception
Two people can look at the same thing and yet both see something different
(do you see a young or old lady?).
Your unique view is formed by your own individual perceptions and beliefs. If you can understand where these perceptions and beliefs come from, you can then begin to understand why other people see things differently.
By understanding people, you can begin to appreciate who they are and improve your relationships with them.
The Discovery Colour Energies
The origins of personality trait theory date back to ancient Greece and Hippocrates. Hippocrates observed four distinct groups of characteristics, which he labelled the ‘Four Humours’. He determined that once he could identify what type of ‘humour’ a person had, he could predict their likely behaviour.
Many researchers have subsequently expanded on this knowledge, and Insights has built on the extensive work of Swiss psychologist Dr Carl G Jung (1875-1961) to develop the Insights Discovery learning system.
This system uses four distinct colour energies which you can apply in your daily life to help you understand why you behave in the way you do, and why other people might behave differently.
People with a preference for Fiery Red energy are extroverted and have high energy. They are action oriented and always in motion. They will approach others in a direct, authoritative manner, radiating a desire for power and control.
People with a preference for Sunshine Yellow energy are strongly extroverted, radiant, and friendly. They are usually positive and concerned with good human relations. They will approach others in a persuasive, democratic manner, radiating a desire for sociability.
People with a preference for Earth Green energy focus on values and depth in relationships. They want others to be able to rely on them. They prefer democratic relations that value the individual and are personal in style, radiating a desire for understanding.
People with a preference for Cool Blue energy are introverted and have a desire to know and understand the world around them. They prefer written communication in order to maintain clarity and precision, radiating a desire for analysis.
All the Colour Energies add value
All colours have equal value and everyone will use all four colour energies to varying degrees. It is the unique ordering and degree of energies which will shape your personal style.
It is your preference for one or two colour energies in particular that will indicate your dominant or preferred style of thinking, decision making, interacting, working and communicating.
It is the recognition of and adaption to these preferences that provides the secret keys to enhanced communication and inter-personal effectiveness.
Every individual is unique and with the potent power of Insights Discovery® we are able to describe that uniqueness and how to tap into its full potential. That is the essence of our system for developing people and helping our clients to improve their effectiveness in the five vital areas: individuals, teams, sales, leadership and organisations.

What our clients say...
It was a phenomenal success and I highly recommend this course...
AIPE CEO, Amjad Khanche highly recommends Insights Discovery®...
This has been fantastic for us...
...our folks are loving it, they are learning a lot about themselves and they are learning how to communicate with their teams, their employees, our members in a way that is going to unlock so much potential going forward. Having an appreciation and understanding that you and I are different but we can still find common ground together is really going to be a massive advantage for us, it's really going to help us move our business forward one conversation at a time. So it's been fantastic for us, never done this before but I would certainly use this approach again and again so I would recommend it to any of you guys if you are thinking about this as well.
