In addition to the eight behaviour dimension maps, The PRISM system generates up to a 60-page personalised report which identifies and measures 26 key aspects of work preference. PRISM also provides an analysis of a person’s Emotional Intelligence (EQ) preferences and a summary of his or her ‘big five’ personality traits, 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.
PRISM can create team maps and match a team with a team benchmark. Also available is PRISM Team Performance Diagnostic, this enables teams to assess their effectiveness in six overarching factors that are common to high performing teams. These six factors are broken down into 16 key result areas of performance; six of these relate to the achievement of team goals or objectives, six to the team’s internal and external relationships, four to the team climate and the team’s approach to team working. The instrument allows every member of the team to provide input. The results initiate fruitful discussion and accelerate team developments.
Neuroscience is highly complex and its terminology is often difficult to comprehend. In essence, PRISM Brain Mapping’s goal is to make this complex information as practical and as easy to understand as possible. It is about enabling people with no neuroscientific background to understand and use some of the latest discoveries of brain science in their personal and business lives. In fact, neuroscience will only be truly useful in business if it can be understood by those using it.
This does not require an in-depth understanding of brain chemistry, anatomy and physiology. In the same way that most people do not have to know the detailed workings of a computer before they can make effective use of it and its applications, they do not have to understand all the intricacies of the brain to grasp the relevance of its basic principles and the role it plays in creating human behaviour. Although the field of neuroscience is advancing at a tremendously rapid pace, learning the fundamental principles of how brain science can help personal and business performance is a solid first step towards understanding the role that the brain plays in our everyday lives.
