“Creating a Culture Where Everyone Brings Their Best Thinking to Work: 5 Steps to Inclusive Leadership” with Ann Herrmann-Nehdi

“With Whole Brain® Thinking, your business will have an improvement process that does for people and the organization what Lean did for manufacturing and Agile did for technology.”

Ned Herrmann and Ann Herrmann-Nehdi, The Whole Brain Business Book

Because every business runs on thinking, optimizing thinking is the key to better performance and better results in all areas including communication, leading and managing others, work productivity, working collaboratively in teams, planning and executing strategy, innovative and entrepreneurial thinking and change management.

Drawing on 30 years of brain research and current studies, she will explore the connection between thinking preferences, performance and business results, showing how to develop inclusive leadership that engages diverse thinking and encourages everyone to put their best thinking to work.

“Ann is bright, fun, humorous, interactive and provides practical tools 
for immediate application, not philosophical theory."
~Gale Mote, Gale Mote Associates
