Thinking agility is a critical skill for leaders and teams.
Everyone has a preferred way of thinking. These preferences inform how we view the world, solve problems, leverage opportunities, and communicate thoughts and ideas.
When leaders and teams understand how they think, individually and together, they’re better equipped to collaborate, solve problems, and make decisions.
The Leveraging Differences in Thinking Styles workshop uses the Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI) to introduce participants to the science of “whole brain thinking.” Prior to the workshop, participants complete an online thinking preferences assessment.
The HBDI model helps leaders and teams learn to adapt their preferred thinking styles, communicate more effectively with those who have similar preferences and those who think differently, improve decision making and problem solving, and understand how diverse thinking preferences contribute to outcomes.
During the workshop, participants:
- Receive and review their own HDBI preference profile (as well as a team profile for intact teams)
- Develop a better understanding of their own thinking preferences, and what kinds of thinking they might be ignoring or devaluing
- Become better equipped to understand thinking preferences of others
- Learn to adapt their own thinking styles to better collaborate with others
- Understand how thinking preferences translate into communication
- Learn tips for communicating more effectively using their new awareness of thinking styles
Developing a deeper understanding of individual and team thinking preferences can help leaders and teams see beyond their blind spots to work more effectively together and achieve breakthrough results.
