PRISM BRAIN MAPPING
“Using neuroscience to improve personal
and business performance”
Hazel Harris and Laura Thomson are both qualified Prism Brain Mapping practitioners and use it in business for:
- Coaching: significantly increases Self Awareness
- Team building and Team fit
- Talent spotting
- Recruitment: recruiting against a pre determined ‘benchmark’ dramatically increasing the chance of getting the right ‘fit’ for the role.
Cognitive Neuroscience, with its concern about perception, action, memory, language and selective attention, will increasingly come to represent the central focus of all Neurosciences in the 21st Century.

PRISM Brain Mapping is an online neuroscience-based instrument specifically designed to identify the behavioural preferences that directly relate to personal relationships and work performance.
PRISM Brain Mapping was conceived in the early 1990s for use by the medical professions in the USA to help enhance communication and rapport with patients. The creation of the tool coincided with the US national ‘The Decade of the Brain’ scheme, aimed at raising awareness of brain research and its benefits. The early version of the instrument attracted the attention of the business community, encouraging extensive development to meet wider commercial needs. Dr Viki, Senior Lecturer in Forensic Psychology at Stanford University led the development/validity studies to enhance PRISM’s scales and effectiveness.
Further psychological work was carried out in the UK, including preparation for the translation of the instrument into a variety of languages. PRISM intellectual property rights are held by a nonprofit membership organization in the USA, The Center of Applied Neuroscience, which is dedicated to advancing understanding of the brain and behaviour.
PRISM provides three distinct profiles, or ‘maps’, of a person’s behaviour: how he or she naturally prefers to behave; the extent to which he or she feels it necessary to modify that behaviour on occasions to achieve key objectives, and the overall pattern of behaviour that he or she tends to use for most of the time
In addition to the eight behaviour dimension maps, PRISM generates up to a 60-page personalised report, which identifies and measures 26 key aspects of work preference
PRISM also provides an analysis of a person’s Emotional Intelligence (EQ) preferences and a summary of his or her ‘big five’ personality traits, one of the most widely accepted and used models of personality.
In addition to profiling individuals, PRISM can also produce job requirement benchmarks against which candidates can be assessed in terms of behavioural suitability. It also has the ability to be used as a 360-degree feedback tool to include generic or in-house competencies.
It can create team maps and match a team with a team benchmark. It also has a team strengths measurement facility, which measures a team’s performance as well as the quality of inter-personal relationships within the team.
