- A model that incorporates and promotes diverse points of view.

- their colleagues,
- their team,
- their department,
- their organization,
- their customers.
It’s not what they think, it’s how they think
Everything we do, from how we approach tasks, solve problems and direct our attention to how we communicate and want to be communicated to
– is influenced by the way we prefer to think.
Someone preferring methodical, sequential thinking, for example, will take a very different approach to getting the job done to someone who prefers to look at the big picture and think conceptually.
Neither is ‘right’ or ‘wrong’ and, in fact, all styles of thinking are essential to getting the best outcomes from a collaborative team effort but, if they are not understood and managed appropriately, communication breakdowns, delays and frustrations are often the result.
When that happens, we end up with non-productive meetings and the waste of valuable brainpower.
Without an understanding of the thinking aspects involved
and a process to leverage difference, we hit a wall.
David Rock’s quotes...
(Dr. David Rock coined the term ‘Neuroleadership’ and is the Director of the NeuroLeadership Institute)
- Performance is drived by our behaviors and habits, but those are driven by our feelings, which in turn are driven by our thoughts.
- Organization need to instill in their leaders and managers the ability to transform performance by improving thinking.
- It’s time leaders learned how to improve people’s thinking. Thinking is what many employees are being paid to do after all.
- Yet if you want to improve performance, the most effective way to do this is to start at the bottom-to improve thinking.
