mBraining for success

mBraining for success

Multiple Brain Integration Techniques (mBIT) are now core skills for leadership and many other areas of professional practice – and New Zealand is leading the world in this new field.

The evolution of leadership from ‘Great Man’ or Trait Theory, through behavioural and contingency theories, to newer complex adaptive, systemic and follower or relational theories all show how complex leadership is. What is also clear is that leadership is no longer just the domain of those in positions or role which have leadership in the title. Leaders are across the whole of any organisation and individuals lead formally and informally to generate desired change. And they need skills to do that effectively.

There is a clear call for a different type of leadership, yet often people are not empowered with information and skills as to how to lead differently.

mBIT offers a brand new approach to leading with impact: from managing self, through to connecting with self and others in a way which offers real and transformational change. mBIT offers gentle yet profound change opportunities.

Using the very latest knowledge of neuroscience, mBIT Coach Certification offers a set of skills which will take your leadership practice to a whole new level.

Dr Suzanne Henwood and Grant Soosalu presented the theory of mBIT at the International Leadership Association Conference in Auckland in April 2013 and will be presenting again at the Global Leadership Conference in San Diego in November 2014, sharing this exciting new field in the context of leadership. And, you can access that training right here in New Zealand. (They have also
shared the technique in the conclusion of Suzanne’s new book: Practical Leadership in Nursing and Health Care: A multiprofessional approach by Taylor and Francis, 2014) showing its application in a health care context.

Suzanne says “The skills we teach allow you to understand that you have three complex neural adaptive networks (or brains), each of which has a specific role and each of which works to a highest expression. What is amazing is that when you communicate with and align the three brains and ensure each is working to their highest expression, a whole new level of wisdom emerges that was not available to you previously. That makes mBIT an essential tool in any professional practice where you make decisions, need to lead and influence other people, where you work with and connect with others through coaching, development, management, leadership or education.

It is also a powerful personal development programme. In short – this is useful for anyone who wants to be more successful”.

If you want to find out more – get in touch and book your place on up coming courses in Auckland.
