Behavioural Profiling


Know thyself

Developing individuals, teams, and organisations

At Mind Your Way, we offer clients a range of behavioural profiling tools to understand their own and others’ strengths and development areas, communication and decision-making styles, motivators and de-motivators, as well as typical stress responses. Understanding individuals’ behavioural strengths is vital in many contexts: whether in your own leadership and career development; when recruiting new team members or trouble-shooting existing relationships; or to manage and motivate your staff. We use the FinxS online platform to deliver these tools – for easy access from your computer, tablet, and other devices.

EDISC Behavioural Analysis

Extended DISC (EDISC) is an advanced behavioural profiling tool available in over 60 languages today. It uses a sophisticated, well-validated psychometric algorithm to determine individuals’ natural and adapted behavioural tendencies – something many profiling tools fail to do.  This online psychometric self-assessment is comprised of 24 questions (with 2 sub-questions each) that take 10-12 minutes to complete. Seemingly simple, it provides remarkably accurate and useful insights into human behaviour, and affords an in-depth analysis of strengths and development areas. Via the FinxS online platform, we will generate your personal EDISC report that will serve as a basis for discussion during coaching. Reports can identify 160 different behavioural styles, and can be tailored to you and your organisation’s needs (for example, if you are recruiting for a certain role, we can design a report that speaks to your advertised role’s selection criteria). In addition to the Individual Analysis report, you can select to undertake a Team Analysis or Work Pair Analysis that will help you manage and enhance relationships among your team.

Team Behavioural Analysis

Team Behavioural Analysis is the combination of several individual Behavioural Analysis results into one report. It enables you to assess team dynamics, communication issues, team roles and gaps, as well as potential areas of conflict. This assessment tool provides an easy-to-use framework to understand complex issues quickly, solve problems, and improve performance. It can be used by management and leadership to align their business or team strategy with the behavioural styles of existing team members. It is also used successfully in recruiting new team members to balance the team’s competencies and help ensure a healthy dynamic among members of the group.

Use Individual Behavioural Analysis to:

  • Help identify, recruit, and retain the most suitable candidates
  • Understand your people’s behavioural strengths
  • Improve and enhance professional and personal communication
  • Develop self-awareness and improve overall performance
  • Understand how to get the most out of your workforce
  • Pinpoint motivators and de-motivators
  • Grow healthy teams by understanding each others’ styles

Use Team Behavioural Analysis to:

  • Create a new team
  • Manage existing teams
  • Develop your team development
  • Design team tasks
  • Improve interpersonal communication
  • Solve communication issues
  • Resolve conflict

An amazingly illuminating experience – clarified why I find some aspects of my job situation difficult to deal with.

Open 360 Feedback

Open 360 Feedback is used to measure an individual’s skills, competencies, or behaviours by combining the person’s self-assessment with feedback from peers and management into one report. Results are usually presented anonymously, but can also be used for an open dialogue to occur with the help of a trained facilitator. Clients can choose from an existing array of Open 360 Feedback questionnaires (focused on leadership, management, sales, etc.) or create their own, tailored set of questions which we will feed into a custom questionnaire on the FinxS online platform that hosts these tools.

Common uses for Open 360 Feedback:

  • Employee development
  • Performance appraisal and management
  • Team performance evaluations
  • Training needs identification
  • Leadership development
  • Skills development

Benefits of Open 360 Feedback:

  • Increase self-awareness
  • Identify problem areas and blind spots
  • Pinpoint training needs
  • Improve communication between management and employees
  • Develop skills

For performance management purposes, it is useful to repeat profiling each year, with the aim to compare results and track development longer-term.
