PRISM ™ is a development tool that helps people identify their preferred ways of communicating and behaving, to improve self-awareness, build relationships and increase work performance.
It uses an online questionnaire to create a range of comprehensive reports and is available in a number of levels - Foundation, Personal, Professional and even a Team Diagnostic and 360º Feedback option.
Whether you're trying to understand yourself better, want to build a more cohesive team or are looking for ways to help recruit the right people, PRISM has the flexibility to deliver.
Our team of accredited PRISM Practitioners are able to offer 1-to-1 PRISM coaching, group and team workshops and individually tailored sessions for 360º feedback and to assist with your recruitment.
How PRISM can help
PRISM helps people to understand their preferred behaviours, communication style and ways of working. We run 1-to-1 coaching sessions with individuals to increase their awareness of personal strengths, development areas and the potential impact they may have on others.
We help teams to improve relationships and build deeper understanding between individuals, to reduce conflict and improve results. We can also offer the PRISM Team Diagnostic tool, which evaluates team effectiveness in six key result areas that are common to high performance.
To optimise business results, leaders should be flexible in their style and adapt to different people and situations. We can help develop a deeper understanding of personal behaviours, motivations and individual beliefs, enabling more responsive, adaptable and innovative leadership.
Finding the right people for your business is essential, not only with the necessary skills, but more importantly, the desired behaviours. PRISM Talent Finder is an easy-to-use online assessment tool that can be used to analyse potential candidates against your own tailored-made behavioural job benchmark and in-house competences.
Sales & Service
Our engaging PRISM workshops help your customer facing team members to recognise their own style, the style of their customers and the potential impact that they may have, so they can learn to adjust their approach to improve communication and increase customer satisfaction.
If you're looking for a user-friendly system that allows feedback to be gained with minimal effort, we can help. PRISM 360 can be customised according to your own requirements and enables up to 26 observers' responses to be recorded. It also allows your own, in-house competencies to be uploaded onto the system.
PRISM does not label people or fit them into boxes. It doesn't have ‘scores’, or right or wrong answers.
The complexity of the brain has shown that humans cannot be divided up into a fixed number of types. Instead, PRISM provides a powerful, graphical explanation of preferred behaviours and a reason why we approach situations and individuals in different ways.
PRISM is based upon a person's perception. If the way they see things changes, their behaviour will also change. It was traditionally believed that once the brain’s physical connections were completed during childhood, the brain became hardwired and remained like that for life.
Now, thanks to the latest brain imaging technology, we know that all our experiences, thoughts, actions and emotions constantly change the makeup of our brain and also our behaviour. This process is known as neuroplasticity.
This explains why you may behave differently from one situation to another and that over time your behaviour can change, as you gain more experience.
The PRISM Map and Report
After completing the online questionnaire, users receive their PRISM profile, either as a PDF or via iMap, an interactive digital platform that can be accessed on any device.
The profile contains a range of information, including the PRISM map, which is the heart of the tool. This highlights their behaviour, based upon eight key characteristics.
The Foundation level map shows how the person naturally prefers to behave most of the time, whilst the Personal and Professional level maps also have the capability to show how their behaviour is adapted to meet the demands of a job, which is a useful way of exploring stretch and stress in the workplace.
A range of reports are also included, from a comprehensive personalised narrative to work preferences, work aptitude and a career development analysis.
The Professional level profile goes further, adding information on emotional intelligence, mental toughness and a Big Five report, a summary of the ‘Big Five’ personality traits, one of the most widely accepted and used models of personality.
PRISM is available in 3 level - Foundation, Personal and Professional, each with a range of different outputs.
