Discovering how people think
MindSonar measures how people think. This always done for a certain context. MindSonar gives you a clear picture of someone's mindset. It measures 13 thinking style elements and seven motivational drives. When you understand somebody's mindset, you can adapt your communication to better reach them, help them change, match them to the right job, train them more easily, coach them, identify their strengths and weaknesses, and so on. And you can do this not only with individuals, but with teams and organisations as well.
Thinking, Feeling, Doing, Results
Mindset determines feelings and actions. Your mindset shapes how you evaluate things, what you notice and what you miss. And that, in turn, determines what you do and the results you get. Basically, wherever people and results are important, MindSonar is a good tool.
Who Uses MindSonar?
MindSonar is used all over the world, mostly by consultants, coaches, team builders, HR-professionals and organisational developers. They use MindSonar in all kinds of organisations, varying from olympic sports teams to corporations.
Why is MindSonar the 'New Profiling'?
MindSonar is not a personality test. Older measurements like MBTI or DISK tell people what they are like, always and everywhere. This has its merits (the certainty of 'knowing who you are') but it also has its downside. The concept of personality encourages people to lock themselves up in boxes. MindSonar assumes that you think differently in different situations. Hence our tag line: Because you are so much more...
Used by Professionals Only
MindSonar is offered exclusively through a network of certified MindSonar Professionals. This guarantees a good level of expertise. The combination of a refined measurement plus a trained expert gives MindSonar solutions their power.
This is what a MindSonar profile looks like:
“Those who have tried to develop instruments have based them on what people think, do or believe, which is not the proper base for assessment devices. They should be based not on what the person thinks but how he thinks”.
