Jigsaw Discovery was founded in 2001 by Michelle McArthur-Morgan and Keith Nicholson based upon their extensive knowledge of designing and delivering learning solutions in the public and private sectors. This is reinforced by a lifetime of management experience leading award-winning teams.
Michelle and Keith, often referred to as the Morecombe and Wise of the training world, made the perfect team. Michelle is the academic, with her knowledge of neuro and behavioural science, and Keith was the innovator.
The Jigsaw Discovery Tool was first launched in 2008. It has developed quickly, expanding onto the world stage and providing learning experiences that make a difference for businesses around the globe, through our network of international training partners.
Founding Partners & Creators of The Jigsaw Discovery Tool
A new, better normal
We see the opportunity for a better normal in the workplace and life in general. One that is more communicative and enabling, where everyone has a voice and is given the opportunity to fulfil their potential.
We are committed to unleashing the potential of individual’s and teams to maximise performance, health and happiness.
Building adaptive, resilient, and inclusive organisations
We aim to support people in developing increased levels of self-awareness and understanding of others.
We do this by distilling behavioural science into accessible, actionable strategies, providing a framework for understanding, then helping team members and leaders apply their newfound insights and learning.
The result is emotionally intelligent organisations with a more adaptive, resilient and inclusive workforce.
Creating clarity in a complex and uncertain world and helping our clients find understanding.

Introducing our International Partner
Ignite Training, based in the UAE, became our International partner in 2016. Russell Overy of Ignite, is a Master Practitioner for the Jigsaw Discovery Tool and heads up the International Office in Dubai.
“What we could not have anticipated was the sheer fun of the two days of training and the huge boost to the commitment, enthusiasm, pride in the College, respect for colleagues and embracing of a common vision that resulted. The profiling work was never threatening, although we all learned a great deal about our own and our colleagues’ behaviours.
The coaching in communication was never tedious, although certain important messages came through loud and clear – messages that, if handled differently, might have switched off some participants and been counter-productive. The highly creative exercises challenged and tested us and drove home very valuable lessons without ever risking melt-down.”
