Managing Energy, Talent and Emotions

The Pupil’s Toolbox is series of exciting and lively workshops using simple, powerful tools and techniques based on psychology, physiology and neuroscience to promote personal leadership in pupils. These bespoke and flexible workshops are aimed at pupils aged 12 and upwards.

Personal leadership is all about leading from the inside out. The workshops teach pupils how to master their thoughts, feelings, energy and beliefs enabling them to fulfil their potential.

The practical techniques demonstrate how pupils can tap into their own inner resources to balance their triad of health and manage their own outcomes. Pupils are supported to find the courage to set goals, make their own choices and commit to achieving their best.

PRISM Brain Mapping

What is PRISM Brain Mapping?

PRISM brain mapping is an exciting online tool based on neuroscience which provides a map of an individuals’ preferred behaviour. These ‘Maps’ provide a powerful graphical explanation for why individuals approach situations and people in different ways.

All our thoughts, emotions and actions are the results of many parts of the brain acting together, and the personal maps represent this dynamic interaction taking place within the brain.

PRISM '4D' is a four-dimensional profiling instrument and comes complete with a 13-page workbook and a basic profile narrative.

Designed for educational purposes, it provides a non-threatening introduction to important issues such as self-awareness, communication skills, inter-personal relationships and conflict awareness. It is of particular use for young people from 12 years of age upwards and ideal for use in schools, colleges and universities.

To facilitate understanding, PRISM uses four colours to illustrate these behaviour preferences and gives valuable insights into how young people relate to others, perform tasks and make decisions.


PRISM can also be used for Career Exploration

The ultimate goal in helping young people choose a career is to find one that is consistent with their skills, values, interests, work aptitudes and behavioural strengths. These traits are not always easy to identify, but PRISM Career Explorer can generate a written report which helps young people build a comprehensive and accurate picture of themselves.

This will enhance their self- awareness, allowing them to know themselves better, make good career decisions and feel confident about the direction they are moving towards.

PRISM Career Explorer web site is a resource, which enables young people to take what they have learned about themselves and piece it together with what they have discovered about specific careers. They can then begin to evaluate which career options meet their needs and which do not.

In doing so, they can also begin to create an action plan for what they need to do to achieve success.
