 How was the NEED for Thinking Intelligence discovered?


What were they thinking?”

Thinking Intelligence® developed from our research into:

  • “How people and teams think”,  “Whole-Brained Thinking”,  and
  • “Why Strategies, Plans, Projects, Decisions, Innovations, and Communications GO WRONG”.

We found that the main reason for failures was avoidable thinking errors by leaders and teams at all levels of seniority, due to 10 root causes. For example:

  • failing to focus minds in the right ways at key stages
  • falling into any of the dozens of unconscious Thinking Traps (eg Biases)
