Whole Brain® Thinking (WBT):
People have markedly different ways that they perceive and assimilate information, make decisions, and solve problems. Appreciation of and attention to these different "thinking styles" can literally change the way you interact with your workforce and do business with your customers. As the business world becomes more complex, understanding the thinking styles of your customers and expanding the thinking styles of your workforce beyond their "regular" preferences may not be a luxury, but a necessity.
Ned Herrmann, as Manager of Management Education within General Electric Corporation, pioneered the study of the brain in the field of business - specifically, how individuals' thinking preferences, or "brain dominance", affect the way they work, learn, and communicate.
While at GE, Ned developed and validated an instrument now known as the Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument® (HBDI®), and the organizing principle behind it, Whole Brain® Thinking (WBT®). Currently, over a million people have taken the HBDI® and Herrmann International maintains a sizable electronic database of this ongoing research.
The highly validated Whole Brain® Model is scientifically designed to help people learn to think better. Training that utilizes WBT® focuses on showing people how to use their whole brain - not just the parts which they feel most comfortable with. This methodology has been scientifically proven to help individuals at all levels to become more cooperative and productive, and can lead to heightened levels of employee and team performance.
By taking advantage of WBT® and its many applications, companies have addressed issues including leadership, creative problem solving, communication, productivity and more. Companies who've applied the principles of WBT® have found that once employees are aware of their own and others' thinking preferences, they're much more likely to want to improve their skills in less preferred quadrants or to make sure they use other resources to "bridge the gaps."
For more information on HBDI® and WBT® please contact our certified HBDI® practitioner, Prasad Deshpande or through our Contact Us page.

Andrew Sobel's Client Relationships Re-Imagined®
Client relationships are more important than ever to your success. But they are also harder than ever to build. Buyer sophistication, the rise of procurement, and unprecedented information transparency mean that traditional client development strategies no longer work.
Client Relationships Re-Imagined is a proven system for developing and growing clients. It builds new, powerful individual skills and organizational capabilities.
We teach organizations and individuals how to build their clients for life. For over 20 years, Andrew Sobel has conducted the most extensive research ever done on the ingredients of long-term client relationships. Using proprietary techniques, Sobel has helped more than 40,000 client-facing professionals, in 53 countries, acquire more new clients and dramatically grow their existing relationships.
The journey of building clients for life nearly always starts with an expert-for-hire relationship. We've developed a unique set of strategies and tools to help professionals systematically evolve into trusted advisors-and to help firms become a trusted partner to their best clients. When the individual's role moves from a narrow expert to a client advisor, and the firm builds many-to-many relationships, the result is enduring, institutional relationships that drive steady revenue growth.
Our programs institutionalize the strategies and skills needed to overcome the toughest relationship challenges. This program is a proven approach for transforming skills and behaviours. Companies always pin their hopes for growth on finding new clients and new markets, but your best growth opportunities are your existing clients which are right at your doorstep.
