FAQs About Neuro-Agility

  • Neuroscience (or neurobiology) is any or all of the sciences, such as neurochemistry and experimental psychology, which deal with the structure or function of the nervous system and brain.
  • It is a multidisciplinary science that combines research from many fields – physiology, anatomy, molecular biology, developmental biology, cytology, neuropsychology, occupational therapy, remedial education, computer science, and mathematical modeling – to understand the fundamental and emergent properties of neurons, neural circuits and its influence on cognitive functions of the brain and how people learn, think and process information.
  • To understand the biological basis of learning, thinking, memory, behavior, perception, consciousness, human error, as well as how people process information.
  • Some neuroscientists may also investigate what happens to the nervous system and brain when people have neurological, psychiatric, and neurodevelopmental disorders.
  • Neuroscience anchors our understanding of the behavioral sciences into the hard sciences such as physiology, neurophysiology, genetics, chemistry, etc., and validates it.
  • Neuroscience is inclusive of culture, race, gender, and generations. It should be the starting point for any people development initiatives.
  • It is the most comprehensive brain-based framework for cognitive flexibility and performance optimization yet.
  • Neuroscience provides better return on investment (ROI) results for users/clients
  • It separates facts from fiction.

“You can’t improve what you can’t measure”
  • By completing an online Neuro-Agility Profile™ (NAP™) questionnaire.
  • Receiving a 29-page report that illustrates 6 drivers that impact your overall brain fitness and 7 elements of your neuro-design that will help you increase the ease, speed, and flexibility with which you think, learn, and process information.
  • Being debriefed by a certified NAP™ practitioner and/or receiving an automated video debriefing.

“You can’t improve what you can’t measure”
Your neuro-agility skill set can be improved as follows:
  • Complete a Neuro-Agility Profile™, abbreviated as the NAP™, to identify which brain-based elements need to be improved to improve the ease, speed, and flexibility with which you think, learn, and process information.
  • Complete the Brain Agility Booster Program Part 1 to learn how to optimize the drivers that increase the ease and speed with which you think, learn, and process information, as identified in the NAP™. These drivers are brain agility, stress coping skills, movement and exercise, mindset and attitude, effective sleep strategies, brain food, brain ergonomics, and brain power skills.
  • Complete the Brain Agility Booster Program Part 2 to learn how to increase your mental flexibility by integrating the brain-mind elements that impact how flexibly you think, learn and process information. These elements are relative/functional lateral preference, expressive/receptive preference, figurative thinking and learning languages, rational/emotional preference, information processing style, sensory learning preferences, and multiple intelligence preferences.
  • Do a post-assessment to remeasure these elements to determine how you have progressed and in which areas you have to focus to optimize your neuro agility further.
“We make the world work better by developing neuro agile people”

The Neuro-Agility Community is a fast-growing global community of people and organizations who use our NAP™ assessments and learning solutions to develop themselves and improve their brain health and performance. Furthermore, it also consists of practitioners and business partners who are trained to debrief and sell our neuro-agility assessments and learning solutions across the globe.

FAQs about NAP™

  • As accurate as you are honest in your responses!
    The NAP™ is accurate if you:
    • Are brutally honest in your responses
    • Followed instructions to complete the questionnaire correctly by responding to your preferences and not how competent you are. The NAP™ is an indication of the full range of your mental preferences that impact thinking, learning and processing information, but not your competence. The NAP™ is a preference questionnaire, not a competencies assessment.
It is a new construct that fills performance gaps.

The NAP™ fills performance gaps in agility constructs that do not sufficiently address the brain-mind elements that impact how uniquely people learn, how they are talented, and why some learn faster, easier and are more flexible than others, shedding light on issues such as learning problems, potential neurological processing hindrances and risk for error.

Holistic neuroscience framework for performance optimization.

Neuro-Agility offers a holistic framework for performance optimization from a brain-mind perspective, which has not been offered before. It takes into consideration the interplay between the drivers that optimize brain performance and elements of cognitive flexibility. This framework brings about new insights and implications for people in education, learning and development, talent development, and health and safety industries.

An interdisciplinary approach to mechanisms influencing brain function is followed.

NAP™ integrates the understanding of the mechanisms that influence brain function from other scientific disciplines like education and psychology, which offers new insights, implications, and solutions to performance improvement professionals like teachers, lecturers, coaches, sports coaches, psychologists, counselors, and people development professionals

A holistic approach to drivers that optimize brain performance and brain health.

The holistic approach to drivers that increase the ease and speed with which people learn and think in the NAP™, offers fresh insights on elements that increase people’s overall brain fitness. This has novel implications for professionals responsible for mental performance optimization and/or brain health of others.

Neuro-design is a new construct for brain-mind elements that impact cognitive flexibility.

The neurological design framework forms part of the holistic construct of neuro-agility. It is referred to as neuro-design. The neuro-design framework consists of various cognitive elements that impact people’s mental flexibility. It is the most comprehensive, multi-dimensional framework yet, and has not been offered in such a holistic manner.

Brain agility has not been measured in professional formal assessments for adults.

Brain agility is about how well the hemispheres of the brain communicate across the corpus callosum and process information simultaneously. This has not been measured sufficiently in professional formal assessment for adults before, which offers new insights and solutions for people doing educational, psychometric, physical, and sports performance assessments and optimization.

New insights for understanding and minimizing an individual’s risk for error.

NAP™ indicates how the interplay between stress, fatigue, and people’s unique information processing style influence their potential risk for human error and mistakes. Reducing risk for human error is essential in any situation where people do dangerous jobs, operate dangerous machinery, or have to make accurate split-second decisions during stress, to minimize or prevent the occurrence of mistakes, accidents and most importantly save lives. This is crucial to industries like the military, manufacturing, mining, and competitive sport where 0 error is required.

Yes. Yours!

One of the most appreciated aspects of the NAP™ is that it illustrates how you are OK, whatever your profile. All people are OK, but in different ways. The NAP™ is an instrument that helps you to understand your neuro-design, and how you can improve your performance. You can then develop strategies and skills to learn competencies in the areas you are naturally talented in, to increase your competence, moving from OK to good, from good to great and from great to excellent. By following this journey, you become an even better version of yourself.

Yes, if there is a reason for change

The purpose of being neuro agile is to change from functioning mostly in your preferred default mode, to being able to execute any learning and thinking function required of you in a new, first-time changing situation. The main purpose of your brain is to help you survive and adapt to any change you may encounter. Change can take place if there is a reason for it. It takes place over a period of time, if you have the desire and willingness to change, or with a change in your life’s circumstances, or as a result of a significant emotional event. However, if nothing has happened to you and you continue to do the same things in the same way, your profile will remain the same.
