Neethling Brain Instrument (NBI™)

Before the escape room, each team member will take an assessment from the Neethling Brain Instrument (NBI™) suite of assessments.  The NBI™ combines neuroscience and creativity research to provide insights into unlocking your whole brain.  When done at the team level, it allows you to gain insights into how to best utilize the collective team brain to solve your organization’s most challenging problems.

“The fear of being wrong could be significantly impacting the conversations we are having as a team.  If we can shift that fear, we would be more creative and effective at solving problems.”
