WHAT:  Team Accelerator Tools
Within the Herrmann Thinker Portal

High-performing teams are those that can achieve exceptional results by leveraging the diverse strengths and perspectives of each team member. Whole Brain® Thinking helps teams recognize that each individual has unique thinking preferences and encourages teams to draw on the full spectrum of these preferences to drive innovation and problem-solving.


HOW: Access the Team Accelerator Tools

Ask your Herrmann Representative how your organization's teams can be "turned on" to the advantages of Whole Brain® Thinking and how our team accelerator tools can help your team collaborate effectively and achieve outstanding outcomes quickly!  It's easy!

Team members use the team accelerator tools to develop high-performing teams through a sequential and on-demand learning journey (Activate/Align), leading to ongoing application value (Accelerate/Adapt).

Team accelerator tools are available in the Herrmann Thinker Portal and within each "Team" view.  You will need to be a member of a Team on the Portal, in order to see these new tools.
