Karen has recently linked up with MyBrain International who is launching a fascinating new profiling tool in London on the 17th February.
MyBrain International is a company dedicated to furthering the understanding of the way in which brain dominance and behavioural preferences influence and shape our lives - the way we live, make decisions, communicate, collaborate and interact with the world around us. As a result of learning about these subjects, people find that they become more effective managers, better leaders, more valuable team members and even that their relationships with other people improve.
So what is brain dominance?
Have you ever witnessed a conversation where two people seem to be talking at cross purposes with neither understanding what the other is talking about? When this happens we say things such as; "they're on different wave-lengths". What is actually happening is that each person perceives the world in a different way; they think differently, probably use different words to describe things and have a different perspective on the same subject.
These differences exist because their brains work differently. It is the same reason why someone might be good at maths but struggle with languages - it's got nothing to do with intelligence, but everything to do with their brain/neurological dominance.
Brain dominance is similar to physical dominance. Just as most of us will have a preference for catching a ball with one hand rather than the other, we will also have preferences for which parts of our brain we use for processing information. Since the various parts of the brain process information in different ways, a person's brain dominance strongly influences the way they are. Their brain dominance therefore forms the foundation of their personality. Some people will be more analytical and logical, others driven to plan and want structure and detail.
Different individuals may prefer to approach life in a harmonious, passionate and interpersonal manner, while others may enjoy the creative, big picture, more holistic approach.
Brain dominance is topical in today's world and very useful to discuss in organisations today.
As Dan Pink says:
Learning about brain dominance can therefore benefit people, teams and organisations in many ways.
MyBrain International are launching their brand new neuropsychological profiling tool MiND on the morning of February 17th in central London. MiND (MyBrain Indicator for Neurological Dominance) was developed using the latest research into the workings of the human brain and provides a unique insight into the physiological foundations of our preferences, character and personality.
Attendees at the seminar will have the opportunity to complete a free MiND profile for themselves, thereby gaining a first-hand insight into the ways in which the MiND tool can be used to improve personal, team and organisational effectiveness.
