The Insights Discovery Model
The Insights® Discovery model is based on the extensive research of Swiss psychologist Carl Jung and the subsequent work of Jolande Jacobi, one of his leading students. The model uses four colors to represent observable behavioral patterns which are measured by the Discovery evaluator; a 25-frame questionnaire of statements from 100 word pairs, which when completed, produces the Insights Discovery Profile. It is an excellent tool to use prior to coaching either individually or in a team coaching environment.
