What is PRISM
Cognitive Neuroscience, with its concern about perception, action, memory,
language and selective attention, will increasingly come to represent the central
focus of all Neurosciences in the 21st Century

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 [Click

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 [Click here to view a sample ‘Professional’ Report].
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.
