What is Cognitive Diversity? How can I utilize this skill to be more effective? Join us for this informative session where we’ll introduce Herrmann’s Whole Brain Model and four unique thinking styles. You will have the opportunity to identify which is most dominant for you and learn how to pick up on clues that others give off. This session offers you the ability to improve your own self-awareness and begin working more effectively and efficiently with others when you implement these new skills.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn why Cognitive Diversity is the key to successful communication and relationships.
  • Receive an introduction to four (4) different thinking styles and discover which is your most dominant.
  • Understand how to identify “thinking style” clues in the people you work with every day.
  • Identify an action plan to improve your communication.
