Our beginnings

Today Insights is a major player in the global people development industry, but it all began in Dundee, Scotland, in 1993.

Inspired by the work of psychologist Carl Gustav Jung, father and son Andi and Andy Lothian founded Insights. Their aim: helping everyone to better understand themselves and others.

  • One of the key players in the market for more than 20 years
  • Inspired by the work of psychologist Carl Gustav Jung
  • Presence in 41 countries and available in almost 40 languages
  • Active community of more than 8,000 Insights Practitioners across the world

Insights Benelux

In 2003, Pieter Stenfert and John van der Steur founded Insights Benelux and opened their first office, driven by their belief that organisational development begins with personal development. The belief that self-understanding is the key to a world where people will give their best, value and utilise their differences and work together more effectively.

Over the years, Insights Benelux has grown into an organisation with some 35 employees and offices in Haarlem and Brussels. We train both internal and external professionals to work with our tools and programmes. Partnering with our growing Benelux Community of 1,500 Insights Practitioners, we help to develop individuals, teams and organisations.

How we work

Your journey with Insights will always start with what makes your organisation unique – your people. After all, self-awareness of each individual is the foundation for all change and the starting point for optimising the performance of your organisation.

Using this foundation, we help people to improve their communication skills and build stronger relationships. These personal improvements have significant impact on the performance of your organisation: teams work together more effectively, people are better leaders, more flexible when faced with change and feel more engaged with your organisation’s culture and values. Furthermore, their interactions with customers improve.

Insights Discovery is the foundation for many of our solutions. This simple and accessible four colour model can be used on its own or together with our wider portfolio to maximise your performance on an individual, team or organisational level. And since each situation is different, our solutions are highly tailored to meet your unique business needs.

Help people to perform at their highest level by improving their self-awareness. Teach them how to easily adapt and connect with others and create workplaces where innovation, creativity and productivity thrive.

Our people

Insights Benelux builds on an inspired team that work from our offices in Haarlem and Brussels. Get to know our people, purpose and core values:
