What is Insights Discovery?

Insights Discovery Overview

Insights Discovery is an easy to use, fun and effective internationally recognised psychometric tool to help you engage with yourself and others, opening up communication and working better, together.

Based on the work of psychologist Carl Jung, the Insights Discovery system helps an individual recognise that each person is unique with different styles of working, needs and expectations. Insights Discovery uses a simple four colour model to help individuals remember their personal preferences and more easily identify the feelings of others.

Organisations acknowledge and put value on psychometric (or behavioural) profiling tools. These tools assist individuals to gain insight into their strengths, areas for development and potential blind spots. The use of such tools has made organisations stronger and in turn aides business growth.

LearningCog offer five preset workshops that are ready to go, or we can customise a workshop to suit your organisations’ needs. Further details of these workshops can be found below.

Effectiveness of Leadership 

Develop the strategic thinking and leadership capabilities of middle and senior leaders across your organisation. The strategic capabilities of leaders and their ability to align as a team has a positive impact on strategy execution, performance alignment for results in dynamic environments and improved decision making.

LearningCog can improve the effectiveness of your Leadership team in a practical and sustainable method that is not only an enjoyable experience but delivers continuous engagement within their teams. Using Insights Discovery, we develop leadership teams that are a true inspiration to the people around them.

Discovering Leadership Effectiveness is perfect if you want to:

  • Transform your business with a leadership development programme that changes communication styles.
  • Support your leaders in developing adaptable approaches that motivate and inspire your teams.
  • Create continuous improvement through developing and understanding leadership strengths and weaknesses.
  • Build high performing teams.

Discovering Leadership Effectiveness starts by exploring leadership in all aspects of your business and puts the Insights Discovery model into context. The programme works so that leaders can examine their effectiveness in all the areas they need to influence. We then work to create strategies for performance improvement and continuous personal development, for the leader, for the team and for the whole organisation.

This programme can be designed to fully compliment your current leadership development activities or used as a stand alone development programme.

Sales Training Benefits 

Sales Effectiveness with Insights Discovery helps your sales teams understand their strengths, identify their development areas and how to adapt their style to enable stronger rapport building with customers. The key to their success is building long lasting, mutually beneficial relationships with customers.

Discovering Sales Effectiveness is perfect if you want to:

  • Boost your sales team self awareness and awareness of others.
  • Develop sales professionals that get it right for the customer every time.
  • Have sales professionals take hold of the sales process and own each stage.
  • Build profitable, mutually beneficial relationships with each and every customer.
  • Allow your sales people to understand their strengths and development areas throughout the full sales cycle.

Every great sales person is aware of their own strengths, skill set and areas to focus for development. Truly great sales people recognise the difference between them and the people around them and have strategies to adapt their behaviour based on the understanding they have. Every customer has needs, they expect more from the sales person and want them to be their consultant rather than receive the hard sell. Expectations and motivations are different from customer to customer. Discovering Sales Effectiveness is a programme that explores the options as well as looking at the sales process to outline those key areas to develop and also how to capitalise on the strengths each sales person has.

This programme is interactive and gives insightful results which each sales person, or customer consultant, can put into practice immediately.

Insight Discovery Team Effectiveness

Cohesive and dynamic teams are fundamental in order for an organisation to achieve its goals.

Insights Discovery Team Effectiveness helps your team members to understand their own personal style, their colleagues’ preferences, and what that might mean for the team as a whole. This type of learning builds rapport in order to maintain stronger relationships, producing higher levels of productivity. By using Insights Discovery, the Team Effectiveness 1-Day workshop will be unique and personal to your organisation. Your team will work towards and achieve collective goals, deal with any issues that arise by unlocking the potential when they need it the most.

Discovering Team Effectiveness is ideal if you want to:

  • Be aware of your team’s strengths and development areas.
  • Have open, honest and engaging dialogue within the team.
  • Break down barriers that hold the team back.
  • Inspire continuous improvement as the team own their own action plan.

Change in management, increased workloads, lack of innovation or simply a lack of rapport, Discovering Team Effectiveness can take a team from barriers to breakthrough by moving past any issues it is dealing with.

Every team has a set of defining moments that will have an effect on how productive, happy and engaged team members are. When the team interact with each other well, motivation and performance are improved. Discovering Team Effectiveness is a workshop using the Insights Discovery colour model – a simple, easy to understand character profiling tool that allows team members to understand themselves and the people they work with. This workshop enables individuals to identify the most important issues their team and organisation currently face, as well as recognising the different problems and opportunities to remove barriers for effective performance. In doing so, your team dramatically increases their chances of success.

Engaging Change Within a Business

Building an understanding of different working styles means you can create a cohesive flexible organisation that rises to the challenge of a busy working environment. The people in your business are the ones who are most affected by change and they too are the ones who will effect any change management programme.

This workshop uses Insights Discovery as a foundation to understand how different people within your organisation or team process change in different ways. Throughout the day you will discover how colleagues react to stress, preferred communication styles in a change environment, how they process this information and what motivates them whilst going through change.

Engaging with Change is perfect if you want to:

•   Understand the human side of change
•   Strengthen engagement as part of the change process
•   Create a clear picture for what success looks like
•   Establish a plan to enable progress

“This course takes your leading skills to the next level, it makes it easier to understand a problem and then how to solve it. It feels like I have a brand new tool case with me wherever I go.”

“Ric’s energetic approach was extremely engaging and his understanding regarding all things ‘Insights’ was clear from the outset. This then translated (through a flawless training technique) into valuable information passed onto myself and my colleagues. It was clear that Ric was passionate about what he was teaching us and he took the time to explain, in depth, all of our results. He was not shying away from any points that people did not agree with, although in my case especially there were not any as the results were spot on and I found myself nodding over enthusiastically as I read my report.”

Alex Wilkinson, Place2Be

“This workshop was a fantastic mix of Management Development, with and engaging and entertaining training style. The “insight” that we took away from this training has proved invaluable to our business and the way we manage and communicate with employees and customers. I would recommend LearningCog to any organisation or individual looking for inspirational but practical development.”

“Ric is a very good trainer. His courses have been very enjoyable in terms of the content and the delivery. Loads of practical plus group participation. Great!”

Carolyn Meosa, DX

“I thoroughly enjoyed being part of the leadership program. Ric helped to deliver digestable information that can be easily implemented on a personal and team level and really drive value back to the business. the programme was well crafted into manageable sized chunks. it has personally helped me with guiding my team and helping progress them to the next level. also has identified in high level detail my own personal strengths and weaknesses giving me solid foundations to work on.”

“The programme gave our managers invaluable insight into how good management techniques can motivate teams, optimise their output and improve business performance.The course highlighted the benefits of having people with diverse characteristics in a team and how to successfully manage relationships within that diversity. Managers who struggled with team relationships because of differences in style have started to adopt differing management techniques to get the best out of individuals. Anyone looking for a training programme that delegate are certain to find interest, enjoyable and of benefit to themselves and their businesses should consider this course.”

“I would highly recommend Ric and the course to any company looking to empower their sales team with a fresh and dynamic approach. Excellent company and product knowledge helped to not only gain credibility with the team, but keep their attention by discussing relevant topics and scenarios.”

“This program worked on self awareness which at first I doubted would be beneficial to the business, how wrong was I. I have really enjoyed this program it has strengthened my relationship with my peers and most importantly my Line Manager. It has improved how we communicate with each other and has armed me with the knowledge of how to continue the teams development, I would have no hesitation in recommending this program to any other organisation or individual looking to develop themselves and their teams.”

“Without doubt, Ric’s point of differentiation is his commitment to making his sales training personal. He goes to great lengths to understand the culture and mind-set of the audience but also to ensure that not only the content, but the environment is tailored to the audience, in order to break down the usual barriers to learning. His enthusiasm is infective and even the most hardened ‘ arms folded- impress me’ types are soon willing participants in his engaging sessions. A true professional who our team ask for again and again.”

“This programme has given the management team encouragement that both strengths and weaknesses are a positive, it has identified how to adopt your strengths to gain management buy in and how to coach and mentor your teams through their various levels of development.”

I have to say that it is a Godsend that we completed our training with you at the time we did.   The principles have been invaluable to us as we have attempted to navigate our way through some unprecedented managerial waters these last few weeks.  Knowing our colours (and how they manifest themselves in times of stress) has averted many a spat and we are all noticing how calm, purposeful and focussed our collective decision making has been.

Joanne Creighton, Canterbury Oast Trust

“The Leadership Programme has been an incredibly worthwhile experience and a sound investment for Whilst some managers have been through similar programmes in other organisations, to some it was the first time they have ever experienced management training and the self-awareness that it has brought is invaluable. The insight that the programme has given into both our own, and our peers dominant/preferred working styles has manifested itself in a stronger and more cohesive management team and I don’t think it is any coincidence that parallel to the improvement in team morale is a significant increase in sales.”


“The company I work for approached Learningcog to help improve our selling skills within a team of designers. So far we have had two sessions and I have found them to be incredibly interesting, thought provoking and so many useful points that you can come away with and put in to practice. I am looking forward to the next session and I personally think Ric is a great teacher, motivator and very encouraging.”

Noel Fitzgerald, Design Interiors

“As a young entrepreneurial company we have lots of self-taught managers. This course has built confidence in them and given them the skills and framework to manage much more effectively. The leadership programme has built on my originally self taught management style. I feel I now have the tools and confidence to manage and develop a team effectively and also to work alongside my peers having more productive conversations and a greater insight into them both personally and individually. The programme was very enjoyable with all learning styles catered for and I feel I have taken a lot away from the experience both relevant within the workplace and personally.”

“I have sat on some courses over a number of years each giving me something but none with quite the impact this one has had on a work and personal level I had forgotten how great the tool of listening really is and arms us with so much knowledge to catch those all important fish. I am using SPEC in all sorts of different approaches.”

“In a business with the growth boohoo rates has experienced many managers went from managing 1 or 2 people to sometimes have teams of 10 or more, within the space of 12-18 months. Having a leadership programme to support this learning on your feet was invaluable. There were clear steps in this program starting to understand you and the impact of your behaviour through the colour energies and 360 review process. Then moving on for you to use this to understand your team better and how to support and motivate them to drive results. You were also able to break this down into bite sized chucks so that others in the team managing people can cascade this down.”

Natasha Hackett, Head of Brand,

“The programme was a great way to help myself as an individual understand not only the needs of my teams and other roles within the business and how to work with these other areas but also gain a further understanding into myself and my own ways of workings and how to improve and build on this. The insight training was a great way of communicating the ways in which we manage teams and other areas of the business and helps to promote further improvements and skills to new ways of working and also building on current strengths, Also fun and engaging throughout the programme.”

“Having been recommended to Ric for leadership mentoring I am very glad for the introduction. Ric has a creative approach utilising skills and experience gained from a very successful corporate career. Although he provides a range of training solutions he manages to turn these into bespoke coaching so that your development continues beyond the course and the skills learnt are implemented into your day to day business.”

“Ric recently ran a course through Learning Cog for our company sales people. Following a number of really enjoyable & energetic days of learning and developing both professionally and personally from Ric I am more than happy to highly recommend him. I have been using the skills he taught me to wonderful effect. When I read Winston Churchills quote ‘I am always ready to learn although I do not always like being taught’, I can only wish he had the opportunity to learn from Ric Hayden.”

“Our Insights training day delivered by LearningCog was a truly refreshing and enlightening day that really engaged our managers in the importance of building effective relationships to be able to manage, adapt and connect with their teams. Ric is a highly competent and experienced trainer who shared his extensive knowledge of the science behind Insights with his infectious enthusiasm and commitment. I have no hesitation in recommending LearningCog to any company who are looking for practical, interactive and engaging learning events that really meet the needs of colleagues and their businesses.”

“Good programme for our teams as offered practical advise and tips not just theory.”

“Ric has recently delivered a first-rate bespoke package of consultative sales training for our company. In designing the programme, Ric had taken time in advance to really understand our requirements and ensure that these were more than adequately met. Ric’s professionalism and his naturally friendly and open style made for the perfect combination to ensure that the entire group remained engaged throughout. Participant feedback at the end of the training was glowing and unanimous in capturing just how much everyone had learnt and had acquired new skills in a short space of time. All of this was down to Ric’s delivery, insights, guidance and direction that he had provided over the three days. Without any hesitation I would recommend Ric and Learning Cog to anyone looking for the right learning and development solution.”

“All of our team really enjoyed attending The Insights day with Ric and have not stopped talking about it since! The day is not only fun, but also extremely enlightening in getting to know the working preferences of your colleagues. It was brilliant to see the range of personalities and dispositions across our team. I loved receiving a personalised, tailor made report and was surprised about how accurate it was. Ric’s friendly and open approach made the day even more pleasurable and I would recommend the day to any organisation looking to combine an illuminating experience with some great team-bonding.”

Caroline Davis, Place2Be

“The programme took on an informal and open learning approach which suits a dynamic business It came at a time the business was going through change with new structure levels and therefore helped understand and adapt to the different character types effectively.”

Melanie Strothers, Head of Buying,

“Ric is a first class teacher / mentor who obviously plans all of his courses well in advance to fit his students. He gently gets the best out of his students while still getting them out of their comfort zone, with the well managed role plays. Would fully recommend this course to any new or seasoned sales Personnel!”

Sean Wear, Consultative Selling

“Ric is an enthusiastic motivator, structured and willing to give a lot of himself in his training sessions. He gives you energy and a lot of new inspiration and skills for yourself and the group he’s training. Top qualities: Expert, High Integrity, Creative.”

“The course combined both practical and theoretical learning to provide a well balanced structure. From a personal perspective, the insight into my own Management style and how I convey this to others has helped me to develop and/ or reinforce working relationships within the company.”

“The Insights session delivered by LearningCog gave my team a great overview of our diverse characteristics and some really practical pointers on how to adapt our individual styles in order to get the best out of other team members. Ric struck the right balance between making the session really informative, and fun.  It was a really interactive session and I would recommend it for anyone looking for a team building event with a purpose. The whole experience of dealing with LearningCog, from initial booking and planning through to delivery, was really smooth and we would definitely use them again.”

“Ric is an exemplary trainer and whom we hold dear. He gets engrossed in the culture and role of those he is training to not only deliver as a trainer but as a coach and mentor. His creativity in approach to deliver in the most impactful and engaging way possible, has the unusual ability to transform the most dry subject into a highly practical and engaging experience, which our client.”

“Ric’s Manager in Me/ Insights Program was very educational and helped me understand how to read and understand my staff better.”

David Arnold, DX
