Overview – The Thinking Styles Challenge is a fun, interactive way for teams to work together, gain insights into their own thinking styles and better understand how different people can work together for maximum effectiveness.
The Instructional Game – The first step is an interactive card game where participants trade “most descriptive” adjectives on playing cards to better understand the whole-brain theory and how it applies to team interaction. This is a fun introduction to the model, and a way for partici- pants to get to know themselves and their team mates better.
Learning Module – A short walk-through of the Brain Dominance Theory and content is presented to the group. Team members will better understand the 4 major processing areas of the brain and how they effect communication, creativity, brainstorming, problem solving and team success.
Application Phase – The final segment deals with practical applications of the whole brain model and how each individual’s contributions are essential to a successful team. The content is based on the focus of the program (teamwork, goals, change, etc.) and the specific needs of your group. Available topics include:
- Using Whole Brain Strategic Planning.
- Understanding the listener’s needs.
- Maximizing communication.
- Minimizing misunderstandings.
