Emergenetics: A Whole Approach for Businesses

Emergenetics – a dynamic psychometric tool that we, at Wholeness Healing EAP, are excited to use for  business and organizational development, management, communication, team building and leadership development. Based on the research of left-brain/right-brain by Dr. Roger Sperry and the triune brain research of Dr. Paul MacLean, the creators of Emergenetics have developed a profile that is built on four thinking and three behavioral attributes.

There are separate measures in the Emergenetics Profile which identify behaviors and thinking which are calculated by answering one-hundred questions designed to provide scientifically-based results. Often times assessment tools are based primarily on psychological factors with some addition of brain-research. However Emergenetics is built on over 30 years of
brain research. The profile has been given to over one-half million people and is renormed every two years. It is also gender
specific, due to the fact that women and men think differently.

What people see first about you is related to the behavioral attributes and because people can’t see what you’re thinking,  often times what goes on in your head may seem mysterious to them. Everyone has both preferred behavioral and thinking characteristics that are directly unique to their own personality. In identifying preferences in analytical, structural, social and conceptual thinking styles, coupled with the behavioral attributes of expressiveness, assertiveness and flexibility, the profile provides you with a better understanding of yourself and others in a meaningful, easy-to-understand format.

This program fits into the way you work and how you interact with others, including family members. When you understand
your thinking preferences, you get a better sense of how your thinking preferences impact what you do and how you do it – plus, you understand others in the same way. By applying Emergenetics in the workplace, you’ll be able to create stronger, dynamic teams as well as increase communication skills. By experiencing the process of Emergenetics through a “Meeting of the Minds” workshop, participants gain increased trust and more creative problem-solving within their team or organization.

The benefits of using Emergenetics are extensive and the knowledge gained about yourself and others is invaluable. Both Janie Pfeifer Watson and Susan Milner are certified associates of Emergenetics International and have completed an  extensive certification process.
