I was once a dedicated DISC practitioner but then something magical happened. A coaching colleague introduced me to a game changer that I was delighted to embrace. This transformational tool is called Lumina Spark and it has revolutionized psychometrics. Like DISC, Insights and MBTI, Lumina Spark is a psychometric tool that is used by coaches like me to help raise the self awareness of their clients.
However, according to columnist Alexandra Bosanac, in the October edition of Canadian Business Week, the MBTI has no place in business because of the self limiting labels that it stamps on people. In her fascinating article, she reports that companies are moving away from the MBTI in favour of encouraging managers to cultivate a genuine curiosity about themselves and their colleagues so as to better communicate, motivate and manage.
This is where the Lumina Spark is remarkably powerful and versatile. Unlike the tools mentioned above, Lumina is able to help you explore and embrace the aspects of one’s personality and communication style in a way that includes paradox. For example, it captures how I can be introverted and extroverted depending on the circumstances. It helps me explore how my strength of being highly reliable can show its shadow side of hesitancy when I am over extended and it allows for such seeming contradictions as being able to be a change agent and a keeper of tradition.
Lumina is the only psychometric tool on the market today that will not put you in a box or give you a restricting label. Lumina will bring forth deep insight about how you use your energy, how and when you use your attributes as strengths and Lumina will reveal your blind spots to help you navigate your way to your personal power. It will also teach you how to speed read others so that you can quickly and effectively nip derailing personality dynamics in the bud.
Lumina brings the field of psychometrics to a whole new level. It was ground breaking when it was launched in 2008 and has now been on the international business scene for long enough to prove that it is the most powerful and effective psychometric tool on the market.
