Neuro-link’s purpose is to develop people. You cannot improve what you cannot measure. Our cutting edge, brain profile assessments measure peoples potential and how to improve their performance.  All people have potential, but different kinds of potential depending on their genetic coding. Much as the acorn holds the potential for becoming a majestic oak tree, we believe every human being’s unique potential dictates that they can become a giant in their own respect. The point of departure for discovering the giant within starts with accurately identifying and understanding your unique neurological design that determines your unique learning potential.

Your ability to learn, so you can continuously adapt and adjust to new technology, systems, strategies and structures will be one of the most sustainable ingredients needed, to not only survive, but also to thrive in the 21st century.

 

LEARNING RECEPTIVENESS PROFILE™ (LRP™)

 

Brain profile is the user friendly name for Neuro-Link’s Learning Receptiveness Profile™, abbreviated as the LRP™, which is a brain analysis report illustrating neurodesign factors and drivers that influence your learning receptivity and brain performance. This neuroscience assessment is the foundation of our work as we develop people, but believe: “You can’t improve what you can’t measure.”

The LRP™ was developed by Dr. André Vermeulen, founder, owner and CEO of Neuro-Link. It is a continuous work in progress that started in 1995 and has evolved as business needs has evolved. As Neuro-Link specializes in the neuroscience of workplace learning, the LRP™ was born and is grounded in applied neuroscience, and not just another instrument with a neuroscience flavor added to it. It is a predictive analysis that serves as a framework for professionals in talent development and performance improvement to identify potential, select talent, develop talent, improve engagement, promote brain health, minimize risk for human error and improve workplace happiness.

Neurological Design

Neuro-Link’s brain profile assessments provide validated and highly reliable information which can help companies select and recruit the right people, develop their talent and improve performance. It provides valuable information about people’s neurological design and the drivers that optimize their mental performance. Anyone responsible for identifying and selecting talent, developing talent, employee wellbeing, employee engagement and improving performance of others should strengthen their understanding of neurological dominance and how dominance of different brain areas and senses provide a framework for understanding people’s learning potential, preferences and how to optimize their mental performance.

Alignment between people’s neurological design and what they do, explain why people are passionate about their job, enjoy work, energized, engaged, happy and in flow. Our brain profile assessments provide essential information to companies who are interested in creating and maintaining a culture of learning.  It also has numerous applications for relationships, teamwork, stress & fatigue management, whole brain communication, emotional intelligence, leadership development, employee engagement, workplace happiness and brain health.

Our brain profiles help individuals become more self-and socially aware, understanding themselves and others better; making informed decisions about optimizing their brain performance, developing themselves and becoming the best they can be.

Neuro-Link’s brain profiles are great tools for students, parents, teachers and lecturers to understand the potential of the people they are responsible for and know what opportunities they can create to optimize their performance.

Drivers That Optimize Brain Performance

Your brain has the potential to help you do whatever life requires of you. It has unlimited potential in terms of what you can learn, think and create. Sometimes a person may not appear to act like someone with unlimited potential, because there may be an absence or lack of drivers that optimize their performance. To optimize your brain performance and enable all hemispheres, lobes and brain regions to function simultaneously as one functional whole brained system, you need to provide it with the right fuel, physical and mental stimulation and create the right conditions to thrive. There are eight drivers like brain fitness, sleep, stress, diet, mindset, movement, cognitive skills and the physical environment that can negatively, or positively, influence your brain’s performance. In order to get the most out of your whole brain, it is essential that you know how these drivers influence your neurological design and learn appropriate skills to optimize these drivers.

FAQ'S ABOUT NEURO-LINK'S BRAIN PROFILES

The LRP™ is as accurate as you produce honest responses. It is constantly being improved and adapted through new brain research, increasing the reliability and validity of the questionnaire. Documented workshops, doctoral dissertations and experts in the field of neuroscience feel that the LRP™ is highly reliable and accurate. It is however of utmost importance to remember that the frame of mind when the learner completed the questionnaire will have a profound impact on the outcome. The frame of mind required to produce an accurate profile is one where the learner should be brutally honest, objective and understands the questions. It is vital to remember that learners should answer the questions in terms of “what they prefer” and not “what they can do”.

Yes, experts in the field of people development regard the LRP™ as strongly validated. This is continuously affirmed by documented workshop experiences, feedback from people who have done the assessments, plus doctoral dissertations and studies by students and researchers who have based their work on the Learning Receptiveness Profile™. Continuous validation studies are conducted as part of the ongoing research and development efforts of Neuro-Link. Although the LRP™ is not a psychometric test, it complements other validated instruments like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Jung’s Personality Types, and Disc etc.

Yes. Yours! One of the most appreciated aspects of the LRP™ is that it illustrates how you are OK, whatever your profile. All people are OK, but in different ways. The LRP™ is a tool provided to encourage you to understand your neurodesign, and how you can improve your performance. You can then develop strategies and skills to learn competencies in the areas you are naturally talented in to increase your competence, moving from OK to good and from good to great. By following this journey, you start becoming more of who you can be.

You can’t improve what you can’t measure!

Yes. The main purpose of your brain is to help you survive and adapt to any changes you may encounter. Change can take place if there is a reason for it. Change seems to take place over a period of time if the individual has the desire and willingness to change, or with a change in their life’s circumstances, or as a result of a significant emotional event. However, if nothing has happened to the individual and they continue to do the same things in the same way, their profile will remain the same.

The 6 Drivers that influence brain performance, the Four Quadrants, Expressive/Receptive preferences, and Rational/Emotional preferences may definitely change depending on how you develop yourself. You will become a more balanced, whole brained person if you keep on developing yourself. Your preferred brain hemisphere and sensory dominance pattern that make up your information processing style depends on your genetic coding and will stay the same although physical damage to the brain or the senses can cause the brain to adapt and change.
