Why the NBI?

This neuroscience-based assessment focuses on the eight dimensions of thinking. It helps you activate your whole brain for maximum impact, and it helps you communicate more effectively with your team. As a team learn how to unleash the power of collective problem-solving. 
The current world of work depends on knowledge workers–building the capabilities to harness the skills, knowledge, and insights of employees, teams, and clients is the only true competitive advantage any organization has. 
It is a diagnostic survey that indicates your personal thinking preferences. Your preferences influence the way you communicate, make decisions, solve problems, and interact with others. 
The Neethling Brain Instrument (NBI) provides insights into personal thinking preferences and when done with teams- the “team brain.” Insights from the assessment can be applied and add value across many areas of your organization.
