NATURAL TENDENCIES ANALYSIS™

Our natural tendencies are subconscious, or automatic ways of reacting which are considered natural and normal. Understanding one’s natural tendencies almost inevitably helps us to understand the differences between people and personal development challenges as supervisors and members of a workplace community.

WHAT IS NATURAL TENDENCIES ANALYSIS™?
NATURAL TENDENCIES ANALYSIS™ is used to recognise one’s own natural way of thinking through self-evaluation. The logic is similar to the standard MBTI indicator (international Myers-Briggs Type Indicator based on C. G. Jung’s theory of psychological types) used all over the world as a tool in developing cooperation within organisations.
 Analysis contains 36 statements to be answered within 10 minutes or so. Approximately 25,000 NATURAL TENDENCIES ANALYSIS™ tests have been carried out for various development purposes.
The validity of the NATURAL TENDENCIES ANALYSIS™ tool has been studied via the so-called cluster analysis. According to the studies, the results obtained by NATURAL TENDENCIES ANALYSIS™ match those obtained by the original MBTI indicator by more than 90%. This accuracy can be considered adequate.

NATURAL TENDENCIES ANALYSIS™ – Three reports, three different perspectives
NATURAL TENDENCIES ANALYSIS™ can be used to prepare three different kinds of reports and three coaching concepts designed to utilise the reports. Key objectives may include, for example, the following:

  • improving leadership and supervisory skills
  • change management
  • development of organisational culture
  • conflict detection and their constructive processing
  • development of group dynamics
  • improving well-being and satisfaction at work
  • improving interactive skills.

NATURAL TENDENCIES ANALYSIS™ base report

This analysis enables us to recognise people’s natural way of thinking that remains virtually unchanged throughout the life. Our natural way of thinking indicates, among other things, what kind of things we tend to pay the most attention to, how we react to different things and what the most natural way is for us to learn new things.

Participatory discussion coaching
The analysis includes a half-day (4 h) participatory coaching session, the purpose of which is to ensure that the participants understand the meaning of the results (way of thinking and applications thereof) they have received and to provide them with concrete ideas for self-development. The session is implemented using a participatory pair or small group work method. After the coaching, the participants will be able to recognise

  • their natural strengths, i.e. things that will develop further by just being who we are
  • things that are difficult for them by nature – the ones we have to practise conscientiously.

The participants will also learn to understand

  • differences between people and the possibilities this brings about
  • misunderstandings taking place in, for example, communication and interaction.
