Psychometric Testing

Our coaching approach is based on the fact that all individuals are unique. Therefore, at Advise Tree, we have integrated psychometric testing in our coaching programmes. We have chosen Lumina Spark because it differs from the big 5 models.

Lumina Spark provides an accurate personalised reading of an individual’s strengths and development areas. It reveals your personality and provides a unique portrait of who you really are. So, whether you are the CEO or a new recruit, it provides rich personal insights and practical benefits for everyone.

The Lumina Spark methodology avoids the bias inherent in many other popular psychometrics by measuring independently 72 personality qualities and embracing paradox: we can embody seemingly opposite personality traits at the same time. Nothing in life or at work is straightforward and human nature certainly isn’t. For example, we can be both extraverted and introverted in different contexts. As stated by Carl Jung “There is no such thing as a pure extravert or introvert. Such a man would be in the lunatic asylum”.

By providing a personalised portrait of the whole personality, Lumina Spark inspires people to develop the skills most needed in the future: adaptability, agility, a growth mindset, partnering, authenticity and the ability to lead self and others.

Lumina Spark is at the heart of our coaching approach. The powerful combination of transformational coaching and psychometric testing offers a number of solutions to both individuals and organisations.
