NBI® Leadership Style Instrument
Leadership Brain Profile will give you an insight into your leadership style, issues that are important to you (but maybe not to your employees or colleagues) and even where there could be room for improvement!
Developing better relationships, making more dynamic contributions in the workplace and making sound and relevant decisions are but a few of the advantages of understanding your own thinking profile.
Because the focus is on thinking preferences the end result is neither good nor bad. The Leadership Profile is a descriptive, objective analysis of the individual’s thinking choices, with no profile being better or worse than another. Instead, the report gives a description of an individual’s thought preferences, and makes recommendations based on those.
The Leadership Profile measures thinking preferences, and not the skills or abilities necessary to execute those preferences. It is therefore possible that an individual could have a very strong preference for order, planning and organization, but has never had the opportunity to develop the skills to plan and organize. The recommendation in this instance would be that since the desire is there, the skills to support that desire should be developed in order to be effective in a given career.
NBI® Personal Skills Instrument
This Instrument identifies an individual’s skills. You may have acquired skills in a particular area that is not really indicative of your brain preference or you may have a very strong preference in one area, but have never had the opportunity to develop the necessary skills.
It could happen that your skills profile differs from your preference profile. The most common reason for this happening is that preferring (“liking”) something does not automatically mean you have the skills to execute or implement the preference. You may like singing but do not have any singing skills.
The opposite is also sometimes true. A person may have excellent skills for accounting but has little or no preference for doing the work of an accountant. It would be very difficult to sustain passion and energy, if the correlation between the preference profile and skills profile is low.
NBI® Wealth Instrument
The NBI® Wealth Profile identifies the thinking preferences of the individual. Gaining insight into the way we prefer to think, make us more aware of and sensitive to the preferences of others.
Developing better relationships, making more dynamic contributions as an individual or as a member of a team and making sound and relevant decisions are but a few of the advantages of understanding your own thinking profile. The premise of this particular NBI® Instrument is to determine the thinking profile of an individual when he or she has to make investment decisions.
NBI® Job instrument
The NBI® Job instrument is a descriptive, non-judgmental assessment that identifies the skills needed in every quadrant in order to succeed at a particular job. The profile report focuses the specific quadrant scores, and makes recommendations based on these scores.
This instrument which identifies the brain of the job replaces the old-fashioned job descriptions – you get an exact description of the skills and attitudes necessary to excel in the different kinds of jobs functioning within the organization. This instrument can therefore be used to design the job profiles of every existing and future jobs in the company – and an understanding of the type of people who should fill those jobs.
NBI® Creativity Style Instrument
The NBI® Creativity Style instrument provides insight into the way in which you are creative. Every human being is born with creativity at a superior level, but unfortunately the majority of us lose some of our creativity along the way.
This instrument identifies the type of creativity you prefer and apply. Since the focus of this NBI® instrument is on thinking preferences, the end result is not good or bad, right or wrong. The NBI® Creativity Style instrument provides a profile report which is a descriptive, objective analysis of an individual’s thinking preferences – no profile is better or worse than another. Instead, the report gives you a description of your thought preferences.
NBI® Personal Negativity Instrument
The NBI® Personal Negativity instrument will give you greater insight into your negative thinking. It identifies the processes most likely to cause your negativity and block your happiness and success. Once you (and the organization) have identified the essence of the negativity the right solutions become very possible.
Your NBI® General Adult profile (measuring your thinking preferences) and your NBI® Personal Negativity profile will not look the same. In fact, you will often have a high negativity score in a quadrant where you have low brain preferences.
For example, you may have low brain preferences for detail, organization and structure (the L2 quadrant). When working in an environment where these processes receive strong emphasis, you may experience high negativity towards these processes, and therefore have a high negativity score in this quadrant.
