PRISM Brain Mapping is a sophisticated, online, neuroscience-based instrument specifically designed to identify the behavioural preferences that directly relate to personal relationships and work performance.

It has been designed so that a trained PRISM Practitioner can operate the system via their own unique log-in to the secure system.
Once logged in, a Practitioner can email questionnaire links to their candidates and then manage the output report content dependent on their requirements.

PRISM provides three distinct profiles, or ‘maps’, of a person’s behaviour: how he or she naturally prefers to behave; the extent to which he or she feels it necessary to modify that behaviour on occasions to achieve key objectives, and the overall pattern of behaviour that he or she tends to use for most of the time.

In addition to the eight behaviour dimension maps, PRISM 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.


PRISM Brain Mapping helps users – especially business users – to see human behaviour in an entirely different way. It is also an integrated tool that has numerous uses and applications that could be invaluable in any modern business. These range from recruitment, 360 degree assessment and performance management to coaching, leadership development and sales enhancement.

PRISM can demonstrate and measure how closely a person matches the behavioural requirements of his or her job. Such information is invaluable for a wide range of development interventions, including coaching and performance appraisal.

PRISM Brain Mapping can generate a wide range of reports and measurements including. Work Preferences Emotional Intelligence Career Development Mental Toughness 360-degree Assessment The ‘Big Five’ Team Performance Diagnostic Organisational Culture Work Aptitude Work Environment Compatibility.

The discoveries of neuroscience have shifted the paradigm of how the brain works and, as a result, they are challenging our beliefs about human behaviour and potential. When it comes to business, the effect is nothing short of revolutionary. This isn’t just about making use of a new management technique, model or practice. The latest research goes right to the way we think about human behaviour, highlighting fundamental flaws in our current approaches and providing new insights that challenge everything we take for granted about ourselves and others.
