Overview

"How can your business understand its customers on a more substantive level? Improve teamwork? And fully utilize its human assets, given the constant push to improve the bottom line?" The Whole Brain Business Book offers creative and innovative ways to address these vital issues. It will show you and your organization how to: break free of the "brain rut" that occurs when work is dominated by one thinking style; tap the talents of visionaries and communicators to blossom in times of chaos; build mentally diverse "Whole Brain Teams" that geometrically increase results in marketing, advertising, sales and all forms of problem solving; and develop breakthrough insights that will improve the way you supervise, manage, lead, and resolve conflict; and establish a climate for ongoing creativity and receptivity to change. Ned Herrmann's extensive, long-term research on thinking and creativity has won national awards. His work is widely regarded as superseding "left brain/right brain" models and other earlier concepts. He developed and validated the Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument, as assessment tool completed by more than a million people, and designed leading international workshops on creative, strategic, and whole brain thinking. His ideas are in use at Fortune 100 companies and smaller firms worldwide. Here at last he presents his concepts to business readers everywhere. Enhanced by exercises that will help you to better understand your own thinking styles - and enriched by examples from DuPont, General Electric, and other companies now profiting from Whole Brain Technology - The Whole Brain Business Book will introduce new levels of flexibility, creativity, and innovation into your corporate culture.

In the hot area of mind research and its applications in business, the next wave is whole brain technology--the new key to business productivity outlined in this groundbreaking book. This long-awaited culmination of Herrmann's highly respected research and testing presents his four-quadrant model of the brain and the corresponding thinking styles. 100 illustrations.
