Today Insights is a major player in the global people development industry, but it all began in Dundee, Scotland over 20 years ago...
Inspired by the work of psychologists Carl Gustav Jung and Jolande Jacobi, father and son Andi and Andy Lothian founded Insights in 1993, with the aim of helping everyone to better understand themselves and others.
Insights has grown into a global organisation, helping to transform individuals, teams, and even whole organisations.

Insights Discovery is ideal if you want to:
How it works
Insights Discovery uses a simple and accessible four colour model to understand an individual’s unique preferences. We measure these preferences based on responses to a short online evaluator. One of the outputs is a 20 page personality profile, which identifies strengths and areas for development.
Insights Discovery has its roots in the work of Swiss psychologist Carl Jung. It is continually validated and refined by our research team to ensure it is always accurate and deeply insightful.
Where it can lead
Insights Discovery begins by helping you to uncover who you are and how you interact with others. The depth of insight provided means that Discovery can take you to places that you never expected. From one-to-one coaching to team development and improved sales and leadership skills, the possibilities are endless.
Every Discovery Personal Profile provides information on an individual’s strengths and weaknesses, communications style, and their value to a team. Each profile includes suggestions for development that can be put into practice the very next day. Additional chapters are available to support learning and development across a range of areas.
Using Insights Discovery as part of a wider programme
Insights Discovery is at the heart of everything that we do. This simple framework of four colour energies can be used to develop highly-tailored solutions to meet your unique business needs.
