The DevelopmentKey is a unique analysis that maps the ground pattern of your personality or the DNA of your team or organisation, and shines a light on the development direction that suits you. Indispensable for achieving results, because development should fit who you are.
After all, developing means growing into a better version of yourself, as innate potential gets unfolded and flaws get ironed out. This applies to the individual, team and organization. But what if you do not know exactly who you are? There is a difference between what we do and who we are, and amid the search for our DNA and the accompanying development direction we easily lose ourselves in a melting pot of values, aspirations, talents, motives, desires, quirks, contradictions, causes and effects.
That is what Symbool did. We developed a unique analysis that maps the ground pattern of your personal behaviour or that of your team or organisation. It provides a view below the water level, offering systemic insight into the cross connections and undercurrents, in connecting values and conflicting norms, in systems of thought and communication patterns, in complementary qualities and contradictory opposites. The analysis also distinguishes between motives and aspirations, values and desires, causes and effect, intention and action, engaged leg and relaxed leg. And also the difference between nature and nurture. Essential, since ‘nature’ determines the development direction and ‘nurture’ channels the development.
These analyses, IDK © analysis (individual) and CDK © analysis (teams and organisations) offer a sustainable foundation for targeted development. Since they do not merely entail a momentary picture of your personality or organisation, but map ‘DNA’. This is why the analysis forms the basis for finding the right focus, for anticipating future events and formulating a development strategy. But also for transforming behaviour, team or organisational culture, positively influencing communication and collaboration, and achieving goals.
