Why is Movement Pattern Analysis essential?

In the modern workplace, there is a growing awareness that more diversity creates better outcomes. Organizations around the world have begun to prioritize diversity hires, looking at factors such as gender, race, ethnicity, and sexual identity. However, there is another kind of diversity that is often overlooked. That diversity is they way people make decisions and interact with each other.

What MPA Is:     

You have specific, repeating preferences in the way you make decisions and in the way you interact with others. These preferences come from your cognitive processes, the way your brain works, and are paralleled in the way you move. When you and the people around you do not understand these preferences, misunderstandings and conflict can result. By analyzing your subconscious movement patterns, your analyst will bring your cognitive processes to your awareness so that you can leverage your strengths for better outcomes in your work and personal life. 

What MPA is NOT:     

MPA is not a test of personality or intelligence. The interview does not require you to be self-aware, honest in your answers, or even be in a good mood during the interview. Additionally, there is no “good” or “bad” profile. All profiles have strengths, and once you know what yours are you can use them to your advantage.

I’d like to be analyzed. How does it work?

Contact the Active Intelligence Group to make an appointment. The interview comes first. Be sure to arrange 2 hours for your interview so that your analysis will be accurate. After the interview, the analyst will write an individualized report based on your unique movement patterns. A second appointment will be made in which you will receive your report and a full explanation of the contents. Follow-up consulting may be arranged as you learn to use this new information in your life.

How do I turn my individual analysis into a team analysis?

You can make appointments for your whole team to be analyzed. First, each individual on the team will be interviewed and will receive their individual MPA report. Next, the analyst will create a team composite and report. Finally, the analyst will present the team analysis to the group, including coaching on how to leverage the strengths and interaction preferences of the team.

Can you come talk to my team so that we can learn more?

Yes. You can schedule a workshop series to learn the MPA Framework. This information is helpful even before you receive your individual and team analysis .

I am not a movement person. Can MPA still help me?

Yes! You do not have to know anything about movement to benefit from your analysis. Your movement is observed by your analyst. All you need know will be provided in your report and during your consultation.
