We are excited to announce that Native Governance Center Program Manager Jayme Davis (Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa and Standing Rock Sioux Tribe) has become a certified Insights Discovery Practitioner. Insights Discovery is a psychology-based tool that allows individuals to better understand their strengths, weaknesses, and communication styles. Participants take a short online test, after which they receive a customized profile that describes their personality and the value they bring to a group, among other details.
Certified Insights Practitioners can administer Insights Discovery to groups to encourage participants to discern how to work more effectively together. Native Nation Rebuilders complete Insights as part of their yearlong curriculum. Now that Jayme is officially certified, she’ll facilitate all future Insights sessions for our Rebuilders. Jayme is a Cohort 7 Rebuilder, and she’ll bring an understanding of what it means to be a Native Nation Rebuilder to her Insights facilitation. We look forward to seeing Jayme facilitate her first session with Rebuilders (Cohort 9) in Spearfish, South Dakota in April 2018.
To further hone her skills, Jayme did an Insights Discovery trial run with the Native Governance Center staff in January. The session allowed staff to learn more about one another and how to work even better together.
Jayme said the following about her experience receiving Insights certification: “I can’t wait to get started helping people better understand themselves, and in turn, build better and stronger relationships personally and professionally.”
