Taking your brain into 2010

Apple has announced the iPad, politicians are fighting over whether climate change is real, some countries have survived the economic crisis, some are in deep trouble, hundreds of thousands are homeless after earthquakes, wars are going on in over 30 countries, technology is moving faster than ever, and Roger Federer has won another Grand Slam...!

So what?

This is just a tiny sample of the complexity of our lives in 2010, and it's not going to get any less complex as time goes on! How do we make sense of it all, and how can we operate more effectively in such a complex environment? Given that everything we do starts with our brain and how we think, wouldn't it make sense to find out more, and help others to find out, how their own special brain operates and how they prefer to think and therefore how they operate from day to day?

The Neethling Brain Instrument (NBI) is the ideal tool to help make sense of complexity and manage your way through the confusion.

NBI Practitioners are ideally placed to help your clients and your staff make more sense of their own particular environment, whether it is at work, at home, in relationships, in learning, parenting, career choice, and even on the sports field.

There are thousands of untapped opportunities and potential applications for the NBI profile. In fact - I would dare to suggest that there are many more potential NBI applications than there are apps for the iPhone!

There are now 22 different NBI profiles available on-line:

General Adult
Teacher / Trainer
Young Child Indicator
Personal Negativity
Eating Habits
Junior Student
360 short assessment
Senior Student
Parenting Style
Leadership Style
Rugby Referee
Learning Style
Creativity Style
Tennis Skills
Relationship Style
Golf Skills

Some recent success stories include:

· A call centre operation that improved staff retention and shortened learning
times by 50%. NBI Job profiles were completed for 'exemplary' performers
and shortlisted candidates asked to complete the NBI Skills profile and the
NBI Preference profile. Candidates selected on matching profiles
outperformed previous recruits in learning time, job performance and

· A national sports team were ranked outside the top ten before a World
championship series. Every player in the squad completed an NBI profile.
The team was then taken through a series of workshop sessions, where
thinking preferences, positional play and strategy were the subject of intense
scrutiny and discussion. Significant changes were made to match players'
thinking, and new thinking patterns were developed, understood and adopted
as the changing game strategy demanded. The team reached the semi-finals
for the first time in their history!

· In a strategic planning session the top team completed NBI Preference and
Leadership profiles to examine individual preferences and to develop
leadership strategies that would take their personal and group thinking
patterns into account. As a result the whole team was more willing to adopt
'Whole Brain' thinking tools and techniques, to produce the business plan in
shorter time and to a much higher quality. Individual differences were seen
as a strength, rather than an opportunity for competition and point scoring
