    Participants of this study identified that their relationship with their teams and subordinates improved and so did the overall moral of the teams after undergoing Directive Communication Psychology based training with various focuses such as leadership, communication, conflict management… The results did not significantly vary based on the training focus, but on the common denominator which was the awareness of brain psychology within those courses.

    An additional group who were considered good leaders by their peers and were in the top 20% of the sample in both employee engagement and achieving objectives in their teams or departments, but did not undergo this specific type of training, also proved to be more aware of themselves and their effects on others than the group which was under-performing.

    A related study applying the Colored Brain model indicated the genetic vs. the environmental influence of Brain Psychology related to 3 factors that affect group dynamics and ultimately, Organizational Culture.

    1. Influence Related to Habits

    • 32.5% Genetic
    • 67.4% Environmental

    2. Influence Related to Communication

    • 62.1% Genetic
    • 37.8% Environmental

    3. Influence Related to Interpretation

    • 52.6% Genetic
    • 47.3% Environmental

    Understanding the depth of these influences helps us identify the facets required in the leadership development of our people and becoming a great organizational change leader in the process.

      Western models are based on Empericism of David Hume.Can you define/postulate AWARENESS/CONSCIOUSNESS based on empirical statistical methods?They seem to have many unknown components especially from SPIRITUALISM.

      The study does throw up significant applications of the Coloured Brain Model. Two areas stand out : i) Organisations introduce ‘change’ through people. ii) Change invariably leads to conflict, with the established habits, of the person.

      Awesome. The discovery reaffirms the power of knowning your brain color and those of your team members. Also, our emotional drivers. The better we know of our pepople, the easier we get along with them. “Control” is tp be able to predict the actions and reactions of your team. DC Psychology says it all. Cheers!

      Just finish your BA or BS, and then major in Educating Children with Behavioral Disorders for your MA and get a PhD in Educational Psychology. Then, you can obersve children, do testing, write up reports or start your own school. Along the way, you will do much research and much observing. One caveat is that you will have to take real statistics and pass the GRE. I think you will like this line of study very much.
