Q. My wife wants me to attend The Brain Program with her. As a corporate VP, I need a logical reason to attend.

A. Of course your brain would want a logical reason. Attend to hone your management skills. A recent news broadcast reported the average boss spends 19% of the working day resolving employee disputes (up from 9% a decade ago). Brain function information is, hands down, the best management tool (personal and professional) of which I am aware. It has certainly changed my life for the better!

An understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of each of the four thinking styles (to say nothing of sensory preference and extroversion-introversion) can potentially enable you to avoid some conflict situations, to resolve others more quickly, and to more effectively match employees to job descriptions and specific activities. Time is money! As participants, you and you wife will also receive a couple’s analysis that outlines some of the risks and benefits of your relationship. Many have found this information to be invaluable.
