Transformational Results

My biggest take-away was how to use my thinking preferences to better influence others based on their styles. My preferences are hardwired and without a conscious effort to influence differently, I fall into my way of doing things pretty quickly.”

Thinking Preferences

The Herrmann Whole Brain® Model is a metaphor emphasizing the interconnected (“whole”) nature of how people think utilizing four quadrants. People have the ability to use all four of these quadrants; however, there are individual preferences for using some over others. Those preferences, based on the dominance of specialized thinking processes, form the basis of the Whole Brain model which is measured via the Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument® (HBDI).
