How The 3 Minds Model and Thinking Can Make you a Better Leader

The Three Minds is a tool created by Ashley Chiampo to help leaders become more aware of their thinking patterns.  Effective leaders need to be able to shift between mindsets to suit the needs of the moment. The three minds– critical, constructive and the dreaming mind – can help leaders understand their thinking tendencies, and then make active choices to meet the needs of a situation.


Here's is a round-up of the 3 Minds Model by Ashley.
