MindSonar is like an X-Ray Machine for the Mind
Your mindset determines your feelings and your actions. And these determine your results. That's why it is so important to know how people think. For team builders, HR professionals, coaches, corporate trainers and leaders. MindSonar measures Thinking Patterns (Meta Programs) and Value Sets (Graves Drives).

Exploring the Power of MindSonar: Measuring Mindsets, Values, and Thinking Patterns
MindSonar is a powerful psychological tool that measures someone’s mindset: their thinking patterns, their values and the hierarchy in their values. Basically, MindSonar measures how someone thinks and what they find important. Developed by Dutch psychologist Jaap Hollander and his team, MindSonar has its roots in Neuro Linguistic Programming and the work of psychologist Clare Graves.

MindSonar is used in the Netherlands, Belgium, Poland, the UK, the USA, Slovenia, Greece, Mexico, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. It is used mostly by trainers, coaches, team builders, HR-professionals and organizational developers. They use MindSonar in all kinds of organizations varying from Olympic sports teams to large corporations.

MindSonar is a solution to understand what changes are needed in coaching, how to attract new candidates for jobs, how to select them. MindSonar is helping individuals understand their own mindset, helps improve team cohesion and cognitive diversity in teams, resolve conflict. It can benchmark the ideal mindset for a certain function and help organizations change.

Mastering Mindsets: How MindSonar Empowers Professionals to Better Understand and Communicate

Basically, MindSonar helps professionals understand people's mindset, adapt their communication to better reach them, help them change, match them to the right job. MindSonar helps them train people more easily, coach them, identify their strengths and weaknesses, and so on. MindSonar helps them do all this not only with individuals, but also with teams and organizations.

One standout feature of MindSonar is that it presupposes that people’s mindsets can be different in different situations. For example, a person's thinking patterns at work may differ vastly from those at home, and MindSonar can capture this.

Because of this, MindSonar offers accurate, practical insights that can be applied in real-world situations. This is important because people’s mindsets shape how they evaluate things, what they notice and what they miss. Which, in turn, determines their results. To sum up, wherever people and results are important, MindSonar is a fine grained, accurate and practical tool.

About MindSonar in general

I really enjoyed getting to the root of the way I and my coworkers think. Being able to understand how each of us approaches our work and then having open discussion ... was helpful to the team dynamic. Some of the results were surprising but ... we realized that they really made sense.

Julie Donato,  Watertown-Oakville Chamber of Commerce - About a MindSonar project by Scott Morris & Catherine Risigo

The tool is clear, understandable and extremely useful. It allowed us to make very fine decisions between different candidates or in one case identify that actually none of the candidates were suitable. I believe it saved us 10’s if not 100’s of thousands of pounds in wasted time and energy, employing unsuitable people for the wrong roles.
