Clive Lewis: Qualified Practitioner of Lumina Spark: Next Generation Psychometric Profiling

Lumina Spark is the next generation of professional development tools supporting individuals, teams and organisations to work more effectively and improve the bottom line. It is unique amongst psychometric tools because it avoids any stereotyping. It provides a highly interactive colourful framework for better self-understanding and helps people identify how to improve their working relationships with others. By applying the Lumina Spark model, learners unlock multiple business benefits.

DISTINCT DIFFERENCES BETWEEN LUMINA SPARK AND OTHER PSYCHOMETRICS

Big 5 and ‘Best of Jung’ – The model is based on the latest Big Five research paradigm, and can also be viewed through the popular Jungian lens.

Trait not Type – Lumina doesn’t label people or put them in a box, we call this trait, not type.

Embraces Paradox – Lumina doesn’t force choice of preferences, we call this “embracing paradox”. We independently measure the level to which each individual has opposite, competing and contradictory aspects of their personality e.g. their level of introversion and extraversion.

Measures 3 Personas – We measure three unique yet integrated views of you – the Underlying you, the Everyday you and the Overextended you.

Simplicity and Depth – We use colourful and practical language to create a set of ideas that people remember and can apply for years to come. The model can be used at a big picture 4 colour level, an 8 aspect level or a detailed full 24 quality level – dependent on your application.

Press Release: Conflict contributes to 34,000 annual NHS patient deaths

13 January 2017

Human error caused by organisational conflict is contributing to 34,000 deaths annually in the NHS, according to research by Business Psychologist and leading Mediation Practitioner, Clive Lewis OBE DL.

 The research, ‘Mediation and Organisation Diagnosis’ carried out at the University of Westminster, explored whether the principles of medical diagnosis are also applicable to identifying organisational problems in the NHS. It covered the 2-year period up to 2016, analysing the outputs of 40 different mediation cases involving over 210 people – both clinicians and non-clinicians. Acute, Community, Mental Health Trusts and Clinical Commissioning Groups were included in the sample. The research discovered:

  • The cost of conflict in the NHS is over £0.5bn
  • Sickness and absence levels were 2.6% higher in groups where there was conflict
  • The average time taken from start of dispute to mediation was 19 months and 2 weeks
  • An apology was all that was required to stop the tension in many cases
  • Conflict led to the occurrence of Serious Untoward Incidents (SUIs) such as operations commencing on incorrect limbs
  • Patient cancellations increased by 176% in one hospital department riddled with conflict

Mr Lewis, who is currently touring the country presenting the research to Trust CEOs and NHS membership organisations NHS Providers and NHS Employers, says that the findings are ground breaking. “We have known for some time that we can suffer cognitive impairment when embroiled in conflict. We have never made the link between the potential harm that can patients can suffer as a result – if Surgeon and Anaesthetist become enemies and are in theatre together the consequences for the patient can be devastating”.

 Mr Lewis wants NHS England to recognise the importance of investment in conflict resolution and team working strategies. “There is a potential £0.5bn of savings to be made at a time when the NHS is strapped for cash”. The research also refers to the £1.4bn spent annually by NHS Litigation on negligence claims and how an apology could nip problems in the bud and reduce these costs by one-third. The research denotes mediation as a type of palliative care and concludes that organisation diagnosis is not yet a feature of NHS life.
