The Lumina Spark is a scientific online profile tool showing your strengths, how to further maximise them and areas of weakness (especially under pressure). It deepens the understanding of your behavior and how to connect with a range of diverse people.
Each person goes online, fills out the questionnaire and receives their own personal Lumina Spark profile.
It can be used for team sessions or individual coaching.
The tool measures three different states of your communication:
Relaxed: Your natural strengths in your comfort zone
Formal: How effectively you use those strengths in everyday, formal situations
Overextended: Where these strengths can turn into weakness under pressure.
It measures four key areas:
1. Big Picture Thinking
2. Outcome Focus
3. People Skills
4. Details and Delivery.
Building Rapport Quickly
Understanding Team Strengths
Assessing Team Gaps causing inefficiency
Aligning current team behaviour to better deliver on strategy.
