Creating Effective Teams: Emergenetics Psychometric Profiling

The workforce team are qualified to lead development sessions using Emergenetics Psychometric Profiling. These sessions can be used by councillors, Senior Management Teams (SMTs), and other colleagues within your local authority. Sessions can be tailored for professional development, away days or implementing projects or services.

Feedback from councils

The LGA conducted pilot sessions across various local authority teams and feedback was very positive. The workshops were delivered to a range of teams across local government, including councillors, corporate strategy, and human resources. The pilots were delivered using the two main workshops, known as the ‘meetings of the minds’ or the ‘team dynamics for small groups’, depending on the size of the team.

Discovering personalised strengths is important in unlocking potential and making staff feel empowered, thus enhancing communication and collaboration across your team. The sessions helped build a better understanding of individual and collective strengths across the teams. Their interactive and inclusive nature:

  • led to a good mixture of listening and learning
  • allowed time for the team to reflect upon their profiles
  • helped teams identify which skills needed to be better developed.

I thought the benefits were immense. It helps us understand our default thinking and behaving style and how to be mindful of it working both inside and outside the organisation.

The training is translatable to all areas of the council, it’s about utilising the findings and understanding the team and making the team work better going forward.

It was helpful to find out how my colleagues work and learn and how I can adapt my delivery style to meet the needs of others rather than delivering in the style I am most comfortable with.
