What Makes HBDI® Certification Different?

Master Trainers and Future Training

Our master trainers use the latest techniques to build each candidate’s knowledge and confidence so they become ‘multilingual’ in the language of the Whole Brain® Thinking Model and four different thinking preferences.

HBDI® Certified Practitioners can attend additional training days and workshops to refresh and further develop their facilitation and delivery skills – and give you the confidence to run our programs with the most challenging of groups.

Access to Tools and Resources

Participants get the tools and practice to prepare them to implement Whole Brain® solutions at the individual, team and organisational levels.

Our Practitioner Portal is a dedicated on-line resource library of case studies, articles, videos, images and white papers along with a comprehensive range of marketing and presentation material that you can download and incorporate into your programs.

Creating a Culture

Creating a culture of Whole Brain® Thinking requires an intimate understanding of the HBDI and how it can be applied within your organisation.

Herrmann Certification gives you this understanding – and it’s a highly cost-effective option for any organisation wanting to widely embed Whole Brain® Thinking within its people, processes and strategies.

Use, interpret and apply the Whole Brain® System, concepts and programs, including the HBDI® family of assessments

Don’t take our word for it. See what others have said about it!

HBDI is the foundation of the product that I have developed because I continually receive feedback on the quality of insight that the profiles and team report provides.  This is a unique way of looking at how effective a team is and the potential within the team for their return on intelligence.

I really enjoyed the HBDI Certification course last week!  Andy was a very competent presenter and added a lot of value to the course.  I particularly enjoyed the individual debrief session and will be using the instrument and the whole brain thinking methodology in the design of our induction course ongoing. Overall,  it was a great use of my time and very practical.

The training for certification was informative and enjoyable and helped me to fully appreciate the benefits of the Herrmann Whole Brain model. I love the feedback sessions with our Firbank Grammar staff, enabling them to understand their own thinking and appreciate differences within their faculties. We also use the HBDI with our Year 11 students to prepare them for VCE. This is a fun activity highlighting the students approaches to study and understanding how to use the whole brain to enhance their potential. The Herrmann team are supportive and very keen to solve any administration concerns. A truly great instrument.

Working through the accreditation process using the HBDI model really helped to cement in my mind the potential of this tool.  My personal preferences were accommodated and challenged in the right measure, which really helped me to get the most out of the session.  Since returning to the business, I’ve been able to apply my knowledge in my day-to-day work and am working with others in the business to grow their understanding of how our thinking preferences support us in our work.  I would highly recommend gaining your HBDI accreditation if you want to learn more about how you can improve the way you work, support others to reach their full potential and support teams to work well together and increase their effectiveness.

My HBDI Certification was an enjoyable, valuable learning experience – a great balance of theory and practice and I left the workshop full ideas for practical application and implementation. The certification process was well communicated, straightforward and I’ve felt supported throughout the journey.
