15 Reasons to Attend the Science of Self™ Accreditation

We call this accreditation course the Science of Self™ because it comprehensively covers the three sciences of human performance. These sciences are based on the research related to DISC (behavioural science), 12 Driving Forces (motivation theory) and Emotional Quotient (emotional intelligence theory).

Why Three Sciences at Once?

Frankly, people are complex. Using one tool - as many people often do with DISC alone - is not enough to understand those complexities with the depth that helps them or their team. The Science of Self™ Accreditation will equip you with that depth of understanding and practical application through psychometric profiling.

By the way, if you're not familiar with the acronym DISC, it stands for Dominance, Influence, Steadiness and Compliance. It's a four-factor model that provides a universal language for styles of communication and behaviour.

This is an accelerated, two-day course (plus pre and post work) to become a certified provider of the DISC, 12 Driving Forces and Emotional Quotient psychometric profiles. Following accreditation, you gain access to six cutting-edge assessment tools and all the materials that you will need to facilitate a one-to-one coaching session or a complete workshop!

Are you looking to grow your professional toolkit to complement your current skills and offering? Here are 15 reasons to earn your accreditations with the Science of Self™.

15 Reasons You Should Attend

1. Earn 3 Internationally Recognised Certifications 

Upon completion, you will receive three digital certifications that can be added to your website, email signature and LinkedIn profile:

  • DISC Certification
  • 12 Driving Forces Certification
  • Emotional Quotient Certification 

2. Access to 6 Psychometric Assessments

Following the accreditation, you will gain access to three “single-science” psychometric assessments including the DISC, 12 Driving Forces and Emotional Quotient tools. Additionally, you will have access to two “double-science” psychometric assessments, known as Talent Insights and Behavioural Intelligence. Finally, you will have access to our powerful “multi-science” profile, TriMetrix EQ. Learn more about these assessments in our guide.

These assessments can be completed online via desktop or mobile. 

3. Validity and Reliability Research Data

Our psychometric assessment supplier has a dedicated research team and lab, headed by a Neuroscientist and staffed with multiple PhDs in Mathematics and Psychology. The team constantly conducts research on the entire suite of assessments that we offer. The R&D investment is USD$500k - $1M every year. This data is made available as part of the accreditation. 

We also incorporate the latest neuroscience and even EEG brain imaging technology in our research and development of our assessments. This enables us to provide more impactful assessments that get results.

4. An Account and Use of Our Online Delivery Service 

We personalise the way we service you so that you have the support (or autonomy) that you want. We can take care of all administration aspects of your account including the distribution of the assessments. Alternatively, we can set up an account for you to manage everything in house.

5. Lifetime Access to our Award-Winning e-Learning Platform

The accreditation includes 8 hours of e-learning as part of the pre and post learning. Through the accreditation, you will have lifetime access to this material so that you can refresh on the content any time you like. 

6. Your Personal 60+ Page TriMetrix EQ Profile and 1-Hour Debrief

While you're learning about the three sciences and their corresponding assessments in the course, you will also have your own personalised TriMetrix EQ profile to refer to and learn from. We also arrange for a one-to-one meeting with our Lead Consultant, who will take you through a 1-hour debrief of your profile. 

If you would like to request a sample TriMetrix EQ profile, you can do so by completing this form.  

7. A Hard Copy of the Science of Self™ Manual

This 350-page comprehensive manual is included in the materials that are mailed to you in advance of your accreditation course. The manual covers the theoretical knowledge and the practical application of the three sciences and assessments. 

You will be able to refer to this manual on your bookshelf for years to come!

8. One Year FREE Access to Facilitators Heaven

Facilitators Heaven is a web-based application with professionally designed activities and facilitation resources that you can customise with our drag and drop workbook builder.

Our team is here for you and can offer free support after the accreditation. For example, if you have a coaching or training program coming up and would like some ideas and suggestions on how to apply the tools to your specific situation, we can provide guidance to ensure your session is a success! 

11. Application Across the Entire Employee Lifecycle

These psychometric assessments are not limited to just a single activity or a single point-in-time, such as recruitment. They are designed to be used at every step of the employee lifecycle including: recruitment, induction, development, leadership progression, sales and customer service training, team building, change management and performance management to name a few. 

12. Assess Individuals, Teams and/or Jobs 

Our assessments are individual diagnostic tools, so naturally they provide insight into a person’s behaviours, motivators, emotional intelligence and more. A great feature of these tools is that they can also be applied in a team setting with all styles plotted in one graph. This is a great way to get a big picture view of a small team through to an entire division. 

We also use these assessments to benchmark a role and support the recruitment process

13. For Professionals in People Management

Following accreditation, you will have data-driven profiles to help you make better decisions about how to select, develop and manage people more efficiently. 

Because our tools can be broadly used across the employee lifecycle, we typically engage with members of the Human Resources, People & Culture, Talent Management or Learning & Development teams. 

14. For Professional Services Providers 

Following accreditation, you will be able to integrate six assessments into your service offering and strengthen the solutions you provide to your clients. They add immense value to your business. Here is a coaching example using our tools. 

15. Best Value for Money

We have been a trusted assessment provider in Australia and New Zealand for over 40 years having accredited thousands of people. Should you choose to go ahead, you would need to complete the pre-learning online modules, select a two-day event to attend, and then complete the post-learning  modules.
