Start Thinking with Sense to Solve

This highly engaging, experiential process is designed to develop self-awareness, personal growth, relationships with others and as a result, stronger teams and more effective organisations.

Start Thinking is based on the globally acclaimed Whole Brain® model and the Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI®). The process begins with each delegate completing the HBDI® survey online. From this we generate an individual HBDI® profile and/or a team profile of the learning group.

This is followed by a Start Thinking workshop, during which we explore how different thinking preferences drive behaviour and shape relationships. The process drives self-awareness and enables us to open people up to thinking and learning better, by using their whole brain.

Whole Brain® activities encourage participants to embrace diversity by welcoming collaboration with people that have thinking preferences that are different to their own. This works well with the overarching themes of self-awareness, relationship building and social intelligence.

The tools and activities provide the basis for content that can drive on-going learning initiatives between classroom sessions. In addition to workshops, Sense to Solve offer one-on-one consultations for those who would like to explore individual, pair (personal relationships) or team profiles in more depth.

We can also help you to further integrate the process with Learning Circles and internal engagement campaigns that are designed to deepen learning and integration.
