HBDI Cognitive Diversity Workshops
HBDI Cognitive Diversity Workshops
There is a strategic advantage to understanding and leveraging the cognitive diversity within a team or organization. The Hermann Brain Dominance Instrument, or HBDI®, identifies each individual’s cognitive thinking preferences. These workshops build abilities to use “Whole Brain®” Thinking. Once each person has a clear understanding of their own style, teams and individuals use this knowledge to guide how they work and interact with one another. These sessions build communication skills, help teams operate more effectively, and drive a clear understanding of the value of diverse thinking. The Whole Brain Model® is a time-tested framework to decode and harness the cognitive diversity of individuals, teams, cross-functional or working groups and organizations.

People from up to five different generations are working in today’s workforce. Individuals in each generation have fundamentally different life experiences and influences than those in generations before or after them. These distinctive life experiences lead to differences in how we express values, in our sources of motivation, and in our preferences for communication. Help your participants gain a better understanding of the generations and how their unique experiences and expectations impact their view of the workplace. They will be able to identify the challenges and learn techniques that foster respectful communication and positive interaction with all groups.
Diversity is growing in the workplace. As organizations turn to hiring employees from many parts of the world, there in an increased need for cultural understanding. Culture is the shared values, traditions, norms, customs, art, history, folklore and institutions of a specific group of people. Cultural Competency teaches the willingness and ability to interact respectfully and effectively with individuals and groups, acknowledging the common and different elements of our cultural identities. The result is words and actions that recognize, affirm and value the worth of individuals and communities and protect and preserve the dignity of each.
