A BrainMap for your team?

The BrainMap is  a tool to help us understand ourselves – and to understand that not everyone else sees the world the way we do.

For instance if you are a visionary like me then you can cope with detail up to a point but in many ways you’d rather not.  So if you’re talking to someone who’s seriously analytic you won’t normally give them all the detail they want and they may see you as a bit of a light weight.

If  however you know that this is what is going to happen you can take the trouble to prepare.

The BrainMap model suggests that we each have an individual balance point where we feel most comfortable between exploring, analysing, hunting and building relationships.  Sometimes it’s instructive to do it for the whole team so that you can see which bases are well covered.  It can be a really good ice-breaker at your next away day – particularly if you draw the BrainMap on the ground and get people to stand on their own positions.  Then you can see whether you’re an accountant short of a management team – to coin a phrase.

Here’s an example to give you the flavour of how it works.

Team BrainMap

Do you have a balanced management team?

The Green blob is me  the others are an imaginary team – as you can see we’re a bit thinky and a bit right brained. We could do with a strong results driven salesman to put some fire into the team – maybe.
