Whole Brain® Thinking is a scalable framework which provides a lens for improved understanding and insight. It acknowledges that different tasks require different mental processes, and different people prefer different kinds of thinking. Whole Brain® Thinking helps organisations get better results when they can strategically leverage the full spectrum of thinking available.

Everyone has access to all four quadrants but to varying degrees. Our database indicates that 5%of the population have a preference for one quadrant, 58% have a preference for two quadrants, 34% have a preference for three quadrants and 5% prefer all four equally. Applying Whole Brain® Thinking means being able to fully leverage one’s own preferences, stretch to other quadrants when necessary, and adapt to and take advantage of the preferences of those around you to improve performance and results.

It is the framework which underpins the highly validated Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument® (HBDI®), the profile at the heart of the Herrmann Whole Brain® Thinking System.
