Herrmann's Core Idea:
Whole Brain® Thinking

Everybody thinks differently, but few organizations are able to leverage cognitive diversity as a strategic advantage.

The ways individuals think guide how they work.  The ways groups of individuals think guide how the teams they form work. The ways that groups of teams think and work will make or break the success of the organization.

To put it plainly, the success of an initiative depends on the ability of its management teams to drive communication, innovation, and productivity within and across functions.  In 40 years of working with Fortune 100 clients, we've found that understanding and applying a diversity of thought is the key to strategic success. 

The Whole Brain® Model (below) is our time tested framework to decode and harness the cognitive diversity of individuals, teams, and organizations.

Better thinking: The building blocks of success

Every organization already has cognitive diversity. Our software and expertise helps your team decode and harness it to add speed and effectiveness at scale.



Individual Awareness

Individual Thinkers are the first step of value creation with Herrmann, using our Whole Brain® digital assessment and learning apps to decode their own thinking. In turn, they understand how cognitive diversity and their own biases impact their happiness and productivity at work.



Interpersonal Collaboration

Productive collaboration requires effective communication, decision-making and problem-solving. Our platform helps people understand what makes their relationships "tick," whether among direct reports, clients, or leaders in succession. Wherever two individuals need to deliver more than either can alone, our digital tools help them stretch to meet the needs of their collaborators and the situation


Team Effectiveness

As they say, "team work makes the dream work." Teams are at the core of any organization's productivity. Our platform provide powerful insights and application tools directly to teams and their managers to decode cognitive diversity, measure effectiveness and identify obstacles. 


Organizational Agility

An organization is only as good as its individuals and teams, but can also be more than the sum of its parts. Deploying Herrmann across the organization means you'll build in-house capabilities to get the ongoing, exponential benefits of everyone speaking the common language of Whole Brain Thinking® to adapt to change and achieve better outcomes at scale.
