Emergenetics For Leadership
E = mb2
Emergenetics is the merging of two ideas – our behaviour emerging from our life experiences and our genetic traits. It provides a clear way to understand this intersection of nature and nurture through the Emergenetics Profile, built on four Thinking Attributes and three Behavioural Attributes that every person exhibits.
The Emergenetics Profile is designed from a psychometric foundation to give each of us an in-depth knowledge of our unique make-up, and provides an understanding of the person that we are.
Emergenetics is a particularly good tool to be used in the context of Leadership because:
• It is very easy to understand and remember
• Knowing oneself is the first step towards being a better leader
• It allows one to recognize what a particular situation demands and then align his or her leadership style or behavior to react accordingly
• It helps leaders to uncover and celebrate the motivational attributes that each team member has and in revealing and enhancing each person’s underlying strengths—their innate brilliance.
• Helps leaders to manage both change and conflict better
• The results are easily available on the app – downloadable in iOS or Android
Emergenetics begins with an online assessment which is taken around 2 weeks before the actual workshop. In the actual Meeting of the Minds workshop, participants are guided through a step-by-step process – interspersed with a lot of activities, through which the thinking and the behavior attributes are brought to life.
Once individual reports are shared and clarified suitably by participants, the workshop then moves on to showcase the diversity within the team on the different attributes. The workshop is a revealing and surprising experience for participants. "Oh yes, now I understand!!" (followed by lot of laughter and gasps of disbelief) is an often-heard refrain in these workshops. The workshops are also very rich in contextually relevant discussions on attitudes and reactions of different people to change, conflict, etc. For Leaders in the room, the workshop gives deep insights on people and how best to manage & coach them.
Through an immersive workshop experience that involves a mixture of discussion, experiential team activities, individual introspection and group sharing, FocusU brings to life this powerful new tool - to make a difference to all Leaders who embark on this enthralling journey.

I found Emergenetics to be a tool that goes beyond slotting the team into straight jacketed boxes but rather helps us understand personalities basis their thinking and behavioural patterns. The tool has great application when it comes to putting together a project team or choosing which resources to pick for a specific kind of task. Within a team it can drive awareness of what preferred thinking and behaviour modes are and hence allows individuals to improve on the least preferred thinking and behavioural modes.
The app is a great reinforcer and allows the team to share and collaborate among each other in a fun way! All in all – a great tool that I would recommend for any intact team to use to work efficiently.
