Benefits of Whole Brain® Thinking and HBDI® Profiles

Whole Brain® Thinking when used wisely can impact your entire life in ways you may not even realise. Did you know certain thinking types will tend to be on time, every time, whereas others will rarely be on time? By understanding how you think, you can make changes to the way you think, you feel and what you do! Completing an HBDI® Profile, debrief and training with us will help you in all areas of life and business!


Effective communication

Learn how to communicate with others to win them over (in a good way). When you know how you think, and how others do, the communication process becomes a lot more manageable!


Always running late?

You may be surprised, but your thinking preferences play a huge part into whether you’re ‘naturally’ on time or late. You can learn to curb nature, once you understand why you do it!


More thoughtful planning

Some people love to plan, and others fly by the seat of their pants. Yet most of us recognise a failure to plan is a plan to fail. Learn how to plan for a better outcome!


Make more sales

When you talk in someone’s language you can find sales are so much easier to make. Give them what they need to hear, not what you want to say to suit you.

Frequently asked questions about Whole Brain® Thinking and HBDI® profiles


What is Whole Brain® Thinking?

Whole Brain® Thinking is a way to segment your brain and use it for understanding how you and others communicate, approach problems etc. It was developed by Ned Herrmann in the 1970s and has been assessed many times since. It’s validity and use cases are extensive! Please view the brief explainer video from Herrmann below.

Yes I would LOVE an HBDI® Profile and debrief session

If you are interested in receiving an HBDI® Profile debrief then we’d love to provide this for you. The button below allows you to buy straight from our online school – the assessment, the online course and the debrief session. Alternatively please contact us and we can fill in any additional questions for you. Please note these are non-refundable due to third party costs incurred.


HBDI® Profiles and Debrief sessions are typically conducted one-on-one, though we can also offer in small group sessions (with random others, or a group of your choosing – but still reviewing individual profiles) to lower the cost. We will use a test profile to explain the HBDI® profile and you will all receive your own. Should you choose to and are willing to share with the group you can share your profile so you can ask any specific questions about it. These will only be offered on demand (so please get in touch with us).


We can also offer Pair Profiles (great for partnerships), and Team Profiles. All participants must have an HBDI® profile first. These pair and team profiles are excellent to help you work together more effectively. Please contact us for these additional profiles
