My dad was an accomplished guy. For years before he started his own assessment and consulting company, he directed management education at General Electric. In his mission to apply brain dominance theory to learning, he created a body of work that included two books and the Herrmann Brain Dominance Instrument (HBDI®). He also actively pursued his avocations—landscape painting and singing. In college, he majored in physics and music, and he once performed in an opera at Carnegie Hall.
One day I knocked on the door of my dad’s office and said, “Okay, level with me. How did you get all this done? What’s the real scoop?”
