A comprehensive set of tools, the Lumina Learning Psychometric suite not only values diversity of personality, they avoid typing, labels or boxes and reveal people’s dynamic personality through a set of next-generation tools which can be used specifically for selection, leadership development, talent management, performance development and emotional agility.
Lumina Spark reveals your whole personality, providing a unique portrait of who you really are. Increase self-awareness, reveal hidden potential and cope better under pressure. Discover practical actions for improved communication, teamwork and leadership. Find your Inner Spark. Increase your potential.
Lumina Spark embraces paradox – we can embody seemingly opposite personality traits at the same time! Nothing in life or at work is straightforward, and human nature certainly isn’t. For example, we can be both extraverted and introverted in different contexts.
Lumina Spark inspires people to develop skills most needed in the workplace – adaptability, agility, a growth mind-set, partnering, authenticity and the ability to lead self and others. In one tool it provides three lenses that assess your underlying persona, your everyday persona, and your overextended persona, to give you consistent insights into your whole personality and remove the need for additional tests.
Lumina Spark provides a personalised portrait of your whole personality. It speaks directly to people, providing a report uniquely about them as individuals – not about people who are similar to them. The model is simple to understand, yet contains great depth by directly measuring 72 personality qualities. This is why Lumina Spark is the choice of so many organisations for selection, training and development.
- Increased self-awareness
- People work better together and create better results
- Improved working relationships and productivity
- People learn how better to cope with stress
- 3 personas in one product
- Interactive Lumina Splash App
- It’s memorable and it works!
The ability to choose our response to a situation is a powerful one – Lumina Emotion gives people that ability. Improved emotional intelligence, adaptability and resilience are just some of the benefits which organisations report.
Lumina Emotion uses the Big5 model of personality to demonstrate that personality qualities actually underpin the majority of traditional emotional competencies. Lumina Emotion takes a holistic and balanced view, recognising that all traits can be helpful and effective in their own way. For example, both introversion and extraversion can contribute to emotional intelligence in different contexts, whereas many traditional models suggest extraversion is more important.
Lumina Emotion reveals three emotional personas – Underlying, Everyday and Overextended – and shows how socially desirable traits that are often perceived as key to emotional intelligence when overplayed can work against it. Equally, our research provides evidence that underrated traits that traditional EQ models typically do not see as driving emotional intelligence can, in fact, become sources of emotional strength. Lumina Emotion’s innovative approach is fully compatible with Lumina Spark and they can be used separately or together.
Industry leaders now see emotional intelligence as one of the top 10 competencies needed to succeed. Lumina Emotion focuses on our agility in understanding, adapting and managing our emotions day to day in order to guide effective thinking and meaningful behaviour.
- Noticing and understanding our emotions
- Adapting our behaviour and responding appropriately
- Understanding the value of different emotional responses
- Channelling our behaviour towards our goals and values
- Understand your emotional qualities
- Identify the emotional qualities of others
- Manage emotions, respond purposefully
- Completely compatible with Lumina Spark

Lead the way, in your own way. Lumina Leader gives executives a deep understanding of their natural leadership style. It shows them how to lead with confidence and authenticity, while learning how to adapt their leadership style to meet the needs of their people and of their organisation.
People can be leaders in title but not display the attributes of leadership. According to the 2015 Investors in People/TBR report, the cost of poor people management is £84bn a year in the UK alone. At the same time, these are challenging times for leadership. Leaders face mounting demands, a high-pressure working life and exposure to multiple stakeholder groups with wide-ranging needs.
Lumina Leader provides leaders with information that is hard to get elsewhere. It reveals an accurate view of their unique leadership style. It also points to blockers and blind spots and recommends ways to avoid them. Lumina Leader increases self-awareness, decision making capability and confidence to lead others in times of increased competition and ambiguity.
Lumina Leader, and the optional 360 review, allows leaders to tackle their career blockers, become more versatile and resilient when leading in times of change, and motivate people to become high performers.
- Being a leader in times of change and uncertainty
- Motivating and empowering others towards a shared vision
