We asked and you delivered.
Thanks to everyone who participated in our recent blog contest about the organizing principle of the brain and contributed to the list of ways Whole Brain® Thinking can be applied.
The list keeps growing, and even though the contest has ended, we hope you’ll continue to come back to the post and add your thoughts and ideas about how you’re driving the Whole Brain® Advantage and how that’s fueling success in your work and personal life.
In the meantime, the lucky winners…
Congratulations to commenter number 6, Andy Radka, and commenter number 4, Mary Simpson, who each won an HBDI® Profile Board!
Ned Herrmann, founder of Herrmann International, wrote that the Whole Brain® Model is a metaphor for an organizing principle of how the brain works.
Wikipedia defines an organizing principle as “a core assumption from which everything else by proximity can derive a classification or a value. It is like a central reference point that allows all other objects to be located.”
When you consider the brain as an organizing principle, you begin to realize how many ways Whole Brain® Thinking can be applied and how far-reaching the applications are for driving the Whole Brain® Advantage, both in work and in personal life.
In fact, over the years Ned came up with quite a list:
40 Ways to Drive the Whole Brain® Advantage
Under the Organizing Principle of the Brain
Applied Creative Thinking
Creative Problem Solving
Human Resource Development
Task Force Creation
Teaching & Training Delivery
Team Building and Bonding
Now we want to know what you think (and we have a terrific prize for two lucky commenters!):
1. What would you add to this list?
2. Which one application do you think will be most important to organizational success in 2011?
Leave a comment with your answers, and you could win a free HBDI® Profile Board. The Profile Board is a great tool for reinforcing the application of Whole Brain® Thinking and organizing team activities and interactions around a central reference point of Whole Brain® Thinking.
This is your opportunity to contribute to the collective intelligence of the Whole Brain® Thinking community! We’ll publish the updated list in a future issue of our BrainBytes™ newsletter.
Two winners will be selected by random drawing from comments on this blog entry related to the questions above. Contest is open until March 18, 2011.
