REFLECT – Apply newly acquired communication skills as you reflect on your Emergenetics profile.
Emergenetics is a brain-based assessment of how a person thinks and behaves. The company, Emergenetics International was established in 1991 by Gail Browning, Ph.D. and Wendell Williams, Ph.D. The science behind the Emergenetics assessment was based on the Nobel prize winning theory of Roger Sperry, with his discoveries in neuroscience concerning the functional specialization of the cerebral hemispheres.
Through a series of 100 well thought out questions, the Emergenetics profile tool combines the core principals of effective learning, communication styles, and team interaction. The 100-item questionnaire may appear simple; however it is actually the product of extensive social research proven to reliably capture the major thinking and behavioral preferences people commonly use.
Your Emergenetics Profile
Your Emergenetics Profile will be created by the 100 question assessment test. Your profile is a shortcut to a deeper understanding of yourself and deeper understanding of others around you who have also taken the test (family, co-workers, peers, board members, etc.). Emergenetics will produce a report based on your seven thinking and behavioral attributes.
The program facilitates an increased understanding of how thinking and behavior affect people in the work environment— including productivity, team effectiveness and creativity. Individuals learn to leverage their own strengths and develop awareness of what others bring to the table. Additionally, through our workshops and interactive exercises, participants learn how to work through their strengths to improve their least preferred attributes. Teams discover how to communicate and work more effectively by harnessing diverse perspectives. Companies around the world have used the Meeting of the Minds Workshop to experience a multifaceted approach for building knowledge, fostering understanding and bolstering organizational capacity.
Our signature Meeting Of the Minds Workshop reveals individual thinking and behavioral preferences through experiential and interactive learning. It is a customizable, results driven, and engaging workshop that focuses on building communication skills. Each participant will learn how to use Emergenetics in their every day lives. As they are increasing their self-awareness, they are building more effective team skills.
Throughout the workshop, participants learn and benefit from their Emergenetics Profile assessment results, as well as through the action-oriented exercises. Below is a list of some of the exercises that we select from based on the make-up of the workshop participants.
