How to Do Space Age Work with a Stone Age Brain™
Brain Style Assessments

There are many excellent reasons to get organized, but the best one I know is that human brains have not had any major structural change for about 50,000 years.

The three sensory brain modes are visual (seeing), auditory (hearing), and kinetic (feeling, doing) learners. There are significant differences in how you need to process information based on the way your brain actually works.

On this page you'll find links to the online assessments which will help you learn How to Do Space Age Work with a Stone Age Brain™.

The first set are the free "tests" I ask readers of my book to take before applying my productivity tips. Each one takes about 15 minutes to complete and provides instant results with feedback.

The last two Inscape instruments are not free, but are worth far more than their price in terms of value if you are looking for a mirror about your information styles and use of time.

Inscape Assessments

Inscape Publishing pioneered the original DiSC® learning instrument over three decades ago. More than 40 million people have used Inscape products to explore building stronger relationships.

For a more in-depth evaluation of your personal style and how it can help you at work and in life, sign up for the DiSC Classic® or Time Mastery® Profile.

DiSC Classic®

The foundation of personal and professional success lies in understanding yourself, understanding others, and realizing the impact of personal behavior on others. For nearly thirty years, the DiSC® Classic has unlocked the door to productive communication and relationships for nearly 40 million people through its DiSC® Dimensions of Behavior learning approach.

Learning DiSC® Dimensions of Behavior provides a nonjudgmental language for exploring behavioral issues. It helps people explore behavior across four primary dimensions:

  • Dominance
  • influence
  • Steadiness
  • Conscientiousness
DiSC® Classic is a multi-level learning instrument that helps individuals assess to what degree they utilize each Dimension of Behavior in a situation. The instrument then provides feedback designed to help people in your organization:
  • Build productive teams
  • Develop effective managers
  • Train a powerful sales force
  • Improve customer service
  • Ease frustration and conflict

Time Mastery®

Setting priorities and managing time effectively is basic to managing individual and organizational performance. The pressure to find innovative ways to achieve goals, pay attention to the competition, respond quickly to customer needs, and enjoy life outside of work is even more intense in today's less structured, information-driven workplace. Meeting the daily challenge of managing professional and personal responsibilities requires a learning strategy designed to meet individual needs.

The Time Mastery Profile® is a unique tool that provides people with a complete, self-directed assessment of their current time management effectiveness. Learners then use the built-in workbook as a framework to develop customized strategies for skills improvement in twelve key areas:

  • Attitudes
  • Goals
  • Priorities
  • Analyzing
  • Planning
  • Scheduling
  • Interruptions
  • Meetings
  • Correspondence
  • Delegation
  • Procrastination
  • Time Teamwork
