What is Movement Pattern Analysis?

In the modern workplace, there is a growing awareness that more diversity creates better outcomes. Many organizations 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 people’s decision-making style.

Each person has patterns and preferences as they go about the decision-making process. They also have patterns and preferences in the way they interact with others during the various stages of the decision-making process. When these processes are not understood, differences in style can cause misunderstandings and conflict. Movement Pattern Analysis (MPA) provides a framework for understanding human diversity by bringing these preferences to awareness.

MPA is not a test of personality or intelligence and it is not a predictor of success. The analysis process does not require a person to be self-aware, honest in their answers, or even be in a good mood during the interview. Additionally, there is no “good” or “bad” profile. Instead, MPA is a measure of personal preferences in decision making, based on observable, sub-conscious movement patterns. When you become aware of these preferences, you can leverage your strengths and minimize your weaknesses. When you need to collaborate, you will better understand interactions with your colleagues to build more satisfactory and effective teamwork.

What happens when I am analyzed?

The Movement Pattern Analyst will make an appointment to interview you. It is important that you set aside 2 hours for the appointment. Please wear close fitting but comfortable clothes. Avoid black, navy blue, or white. The analyst will interview you on video camera. The video remains private. The client may request a copy or to have it deleted after the analysis is complete.

The analyst will then review your video to analyze your movement and 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 review of the contents. Follow-up coaching may be arranged.

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

After each individual in a team receives their individual MPA report, the team composite will be created and a team report written. The team will gather and receive their team analysis as a group, including coaching for how their profiles interact.
