Lumina Spark is one of a new generation of professional development tools supporting individuals and teams to work more effectively. It is unique amongst other psychometric tools because it avoids stereotyping, while enabling clear communication about personal preferences.

It produces clear insight into how individuals can work more effectively with others. Individuals respond favourably to it because it provides clear, jargon-free insight into their personality preferences. The Lumina Spark Portrait provides data analysis of 4 Colour Energies, 8 Aspects and 24 Individual Qualities.

It is the only tool of its kind that is aligned with the Ontario Catholic Leadership Framework and can effectively guide leadership development for aspiring, newly appointed and experienced leaders.

The starting point of all Lumina Spark professional development is an online questionnaire, which enables participants to receive a highly personalized and individual Lumina Portrait. The portrait accurately describes who they are, and provides a practical method for reading others and building quick and effective rapport. The portrait can be used as the basis for an ongoing development program.
