WELCOME TO THE COLOUR CODE
ABOUT THE COLOUR CODE
Our mission is to bring self-awareness to individuals, teams, leaders, and organisations to create workplaces where people feel understood, valued, and heard so that they can perform to their best, overcome challenges, and achieve organisational goals.
Whatever your business challenge, overcoming it starts with helping your people build the skills they need for success.
The Colour Code is the official partner of Insights Discovery in New Zealand and Australia.
The History of The Colour Code
At the heart of our approach is Insights Discovery. It is a tool that we have used in practical situations with success for over 20 years. It has also been used by over 6M people worldwide at some of the worlds most respected companies including AstraZeneca, LinkedIn, Expedia and Danone. We are proud to be New Zealand’s only official Insights Discovery partner.
After utilising Insights Discovery first as corporate clients and then as licensed practitioners, we had direct experience of successful implementation and the results generated from the program. We loved how accurate, simple to understand, and practical Insights Discovery is which allows the learnings to be quickly adopted to support workplace relationships and organisational culture.
We knew we felt happiest and worked to our potential in environments where we felt and were heard, understood, and valued. The Colour Code was formed to share our experience and help others achieve this too.
Since then, we’ve worked with a variety of teams across Pharma, Tech, Local government, Retail, Food and Beverage, and Construction to successfully implement Insights Discovery and achieve business breakthroughs and results.
Now it’s your turn to benefit from our knowledge, passion, and experience of Insights Discovery.

As an Accredited Practitioner, Simon has seen Insights Discovery deliver tangible, practical results throughout sales, consultancy, and management sectors.

The Colour Code Te Reo Project
The Insights Discovery methodology is based on extensive research that shows celebrating each other’s strengths and valuing the differences in others can help us make a positive difference in the workplace and beyond. We know that this isn’t just a check-box exercise. It’s not just about highlighting and appreciating the professional strengths and differences of people – it’s about enabling people to bring their whole self to work. We wanted to lead by example by making all the Insights Discovery resources and materials available in Te Reo Māori and were proud to initiate a project with one of our key clients in New Zealand.
If you would like the Te Reo resources made available to you or your team, please let us know.
Being understood, valued and heard is not something that only benefits commercial businesses.
We have been honoured to donate our time and Insights profiles to support some amazing charities and social enterprises here in New Zealand. These two teams do some amazing work that is aligned to our own purpose and values.
Cure Kids does big research for little lives, funding child health research to help improve, extend and save the lives of Kiwi kids living with serious illnesses and conditions.
The Cookie Project is a social enterprise that provides paid work experience for people with disabilities.
If you are part of, or know of a charity or social enterprise that would benefit from our work we would love to learn more about them.
What Our Clients Are Saying
“The Colour Code was a really great in-depth way of bringing out the qualities that you can bring to not only your career, but your personal life too. Simon does a great job of taking you through it step by step and ensuring that you understand what it means for you individually. I’d highly recommend trying this out and working it in with your teams.”
CEO, Showing Waikato Ltd, NZ
“The insights I received through my consultation with Simon helped me understand my preferences and how to adapt to have the most optimal interpersonal relationships with others. The tool is great, simple to understand and creates a common language for teams and organisations. I like the colour energy as it can be amplified or minimised and we are not fixed. Would recommend this as a tool to support diverse teams for high effectiveness.”
