MindSonar is like an X-Ray Machine for the Mind
Somebody's mindset determines their feelings and their actions. And these determine their results, in business as well as in life in general. That's why it is so important to understand how people think. 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 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 Worldwide
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.

Mastering Mindsets
How MindSonar Empowers Professionals to Better Understand and Communicate
MindSonar helps professionals understand people's mindsets, adapt their communication to better reach them, help them change or match them to the right job. MindSonar helps professionals train people more easily, coach them, identify their strengths and weaknesses, and so on. MindSonar is being used both with individuals and with teams and organisations.

Mindsets vary with Context
One standout feature of MindSonar is that it presupposes that somebody's thinking style can be different in different situations. For example, their thinking patterns at work may differ vastly from those at home, and MindSonar can capture this. Hence our tag line: 'Because you are so much more'.

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.

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.
