Have you ever had a conversation with a client or employee about a topic and you felt that you were never communicating? That is very common and the reason is simpler than you might imagine. This situation happens in client relations every day and it may not be that the attorney, manager or sales rep is incompetent or is an ineffective communicator. The real issue is that there may be a brain quadrant conflict or disconnection.
You say “What?” That’s right, a brain quadrant disconnection. Ned Herrmann PhD, pioneer of brain research, was a physicist and a musician – now that’s an odd combination. He was head of leadership development for GE in the 1970s and began to research what science was saying about the brain and the way people think. Using EEG, Ned mapped out the brain into four areas in terms of where information is processed and how people think. His research has been validated by many others using surveys, PET scans, MRI and EEGs. For more information on Ned Herrmann, go to Herrmann Solutions. www.herrmannsolutions.com.
This process of understanding the brain and utilizing it’s 4
quadrant capacity is called Whole Brain® Thinking. I saw the great potential impact of this process on businesses and became certified in the Whole Brain® Thinking methodology. I utilize the Whole Brain® Thinking methodology with the majority of my clients.
This process has transformed many areas of my clients’ business:

Diversity of thinking delivers better results. Develop your team to use their brains more effectively.
We all think differently. Understanding how a person prefers to think, make decisions and communicate can be a game changer. Being able to adapt to that preference has shown to improve communication, shorten meetings, improve decisions, shorten sales cycles, and overall deliver better results for your company and your clients. Take a brain survey to see how you prefer to think. See if your team is limited because of group think.
