About mBIT and mBraining

mBIT - Multiple Brain Integration Techniques 

mBraining - Using your multiple brains to do cool stuff

“The complex issues and adaptive challenges facing organisations today require a far more generative response than simply devising innovative strategies and new business models. New strategies developed and executed from conditioned ways of being and thinking predictably end up back in status quo. What is required is a new form of leadership. Not a new approach to leadership, but a new form. This new form is not about a particular leadership style or ‘type’ of leadership. It’s about the leader themselves and their ability to emerge new levels of consciousness and wisdom in their decision making.”

Neuroscience and the Three Brains of Leadership

 

mBIT introduces a whole new field of behavioural change techniques and frameworks for living life and leading others with greater wisdom and authenticity. It is based on the study of over 600 scientific research papers, cross-referenced through behavioural modelling and aligned with many esoteric and ancient spiritual practices. mBIT merges ancient wisdom and modern neuroscience. 

What is mBraining?

Head-based logic, rationale and reason are highly valued in today’s organisations. But logic alone does not create great leaders. We know through the extensive research into emotional intelligence that heart-based connections with others are vital for effective leadership. But if leaders only use logic and heart-based connection, that is not going to get them mobilised, assessing risks and preserving ‘self’ – that energy comes from the gut. 

mBraining is the process of tapping into and integrating the intelligences of all three neural networks or brains to generate new levels of consciousness and wisdom.

Each of the brains has its own highest expression and prime functions.

  

Brain

Highest   expression

Prime   functions


Head   - Creativity
The ability to envision new things, invent and develop new ideas, new ways, new knowledge and new understandings. Imagination.

Cognitive perception, thinking, making meaning


Heart   - Compassion
The intentional caring, connecting, reaching out to others to contribute to their happiness or alleviate their suffering.

Emoting, holding values, relating to others


Gut   - Courage
The ability and willingness to act in the face of fear, adversity, challenge and danger.

Core identity, self-preservation, mobilisation

   

Failure to tap into these prime functions, or attempts to use one brain for a function that should best be done by another are just two of the barriers to generative wisdom that can be avoided through mBraining.


 

What if your leaders don't tap into these intelligences?

If your leaders are missing one or more of these intelligences, or not listening to the messages from one or more of the neural centres, they are likely to be experiencing the following –

 

  • Missing or misusing Head intelligence – failure to recognise the wider landscape, errors in reasoning and logic, mistakes in reading signals from the environment, errors in judgement about relative importance of data.
  • Missing or misusing Heart intelligence – failure to connect emotionally with team members, customers, stakeholders, and the media; lack of engagement of team members; missing or misreading cues and signals from others; failure to consider the impact of their actions and attitudes on others; lack of empathy
  • Missing or misusing Gut intelligence – failure to implement plans and take action; failure to identify and respond to risks and threats in the environment; a vulnerability because of a lack of sense of self and self-confidence; taking inappropriate risks

 

 

Note that we use these terms interchangeably: brains, neural networks, intelligences


How can you use mBraining in organisations?

 

  • Decision making – We teach people how to tap into their multiple intelligences so they can make wiser and more sustainable decisions, particularly in today’s environment of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity.
  • Leadership development programmes – As part of an integrated suite of modules, we can teach people to tap into their multiple intelligences to increase their self-insight, self-awareness and self-control. Confident use of the mBraining processes also enhances self-esteem and self-confidence as better quality decisions are made and consciousness is increased.
  • mBIT Coaching – We can train your internal coaches to become certified in the mBraining approach, leveraging their existing coaching skills to bring a higher level of consciousness to their coaching interactions. While existing coaching skills are not a pre-requisite to this certification, an ability to work effectively with people is.
  • Personal mastery – We can help your people grow and develop through the two-day Evolve Your World programme designed for individuals to expand their consciousness, awareness and ability to manage their own state, and thus live a more satisfying and rewarding life - a life 'on purpose'.
