Discovering The Power of Pause

/

By taking the time to stop and think, team members can gain a better understanding of their role in the team's success and identify areas where they can improve. Research shows that teams are more effective when they harness cognitive diversity by doing things outside of their comfort zone and pausing to stop and think about what they are doing.

In a recent webinar, our Chief Thought Leader Ann Herrmann-Nehdi, and our Head of Content Ashley Blackburn shared evidence-based strategies for creating high-impact stop-and-think moments to maximize your team's effectiveness.

These strategies can help you create a more cohesive and productive team by encouraging individuals to pause and reflect on their work and the team's goals.

How Stress Affects Rational Thinkers and What You Can Do About It

/

According to the Whole Brain®framework, workers who prefer experimental and analytical thinking styles tend to be more rational. They take a more logical and cognitive approach to problem-solving, using facts, figures, and statistics to guide their decision-making, rather than relying on gut instinct or intuition. Rational thinkers tend to be more organized than intuitive thinkers, and they may feel uncomfortable with chaos or ambiguity.  So when it comes to handling stress – whether that’s a heavy workload, unrealistic timelines, a lack of support, or workplace culture – rational thinkers will react and respond differently to someone who is guided by their emotions. For rational thinkers, managing stress and decision-making under pressure is all about structure, certainty, and transforming the complex into the simple.
