Why are thinking preferences important?

 

Thinking preferences have an impact on virtually everything we do, including communication, how we like to learn, make decisions, solve problems, communicate and manage others.  Awareness of your thinking style preferences will give you a new perspective of yourself and the people you deal with everyday.

Understanding people’s thinking styles and how people process everyday business activities when under stress is invaluable.  Individuals and managers who can appreciate the differences in thinking style are able to develop increased flexibility and work more effectively.

Presenting information in a way that recognises, respects and is compatible with different preferences is crucial to meeting co-worker, customer and client needs and expectations.
