What is the Jigsaw Discovery Tool
In order to successfully influence others in their thoughts feelings and actions, we need to be able to understand how those people naturally communicate. A hundred years of research in both psychology and neuroscience have shown us that, in its simplest form, human behaviour can be categorised into four core areas. We all have the ability to operate in any of these four areas but we all tend to have a preference for one or two of them.
To influence someone effectively, you have to speak to them in a way that resonates with how they see the world.
Just like writing, you have a natural preference to use one hand over the other, yet when asked to use the opposite hand we can do it. The result won’t be as good, it will take longer and certainly, we’ll need to concentrate more but we can get a result. With application and practice writing with our ‘weaker’ hand will become less of a challenge and although we will always naturally favour our ‘stronger’ hand, we can effectively use the other.
The same is true of behavioral preferences, once we understand what our ‘stronger’ and ‘weaker’ characteristics are we can learn to recognise someone else’s preference and shift our behaviour to match their preferences instead of our own and in turn, influence their thoughts and behaviours.
So, it is no longer “Treat people how YOU want to be treated”, it is “Treat people how THEY want to be treated.”
The Jigsaw Discovery Tool is a tactile, experiential way of learning and can be used to help develop individuals and teams to improve areas including:
- Team Spirit
- Customer Service
- Overall Individual and Business Performance
Its success lies in the fact that the psychology and neuroscience it is built upon, is validated and then delivered in a non-theoretical and non-threatening method.
There are no long questionnaires or test papers and no computer generated reports, the learning is purely organic, as the participants develop and build their profiles. The Jigsaw Discovery Tool provides active engagement from beginning to end.
Participants actively enjoy vibrant, interactive sessions and come away charged with energy and practical tools that they can put into a new found motivation to develop relationships.
The Jigsaw Tool Itself
Participants are amazed at the degree of clarity with which they recognise themselves, using a unique, 64-piece Jigsaw profiling tool. Next comes the realisation of the array of strengths and competencies that they possess and most importantly, the impact of these qualities upon their communication, perceived behaviours and preferred style of working.
