The HBDI® instrument has been used by over 2.2 million people around the globe in different languages and from different cultural backgrounds. It has been the subject of more than 32 books, and over 100 articles. The organisation that use the HBDI® extensively include IBM, Coca-Cola, Kraft, Goldman Sachs, and Target.
What does thinking have to do with results? Everything.
How we think and process information directly influences productivity, communication, decision making and problem-solving. A workplace culture that celebrates diversity of thought allows people to voice their thoughts and opinions with confidence whilst also having an appreciation of the different perspectives and thinking preferences of others.
