Truly generative and adaptive leadership today requires whole new levels of self-awareness and self-facilitation for integrating head-based intellect with heart-based values and gut-based instincts.

Curious what THNK is? Check this video out. THNK is a School of Creative Leadership and I joined THNK in March 2016. One of my motto’s is that Life is One Big Experiment, during THNK FSTVL I’ve interviewed several people about their connection with their Mind, Heart and Gut. Where this blog and my session @THNK is all about. Check the video out ánd read this blogpost to understand more about it!

THNK is one part of my journey where magic happened a few years ago and where magic still happens because I allow it to happen 🙂

This year I had the honour to host a workshop at THNK FSTVL. I was asked to use all my inspiration, motivation, knowledge and edginess to create something that would give THNK’ers an unusual kind of experience. At THNK FSTVL there are always sessions where you can step out of your comfortzone, one way or another. From fundamental subjects in relation to where the world is currently and how to solve societal problems, to the more personal Quest sessions where you will be challenged in allowing yourself what kind of transformation is necessary to grow.

I took the challenge and knew that it should be about mBIT (Multiple Brain Integration Technique). This methodology connects Ancient Wisdom to our current understandings and is proven by neuro scientific research and I wanted to be the one who would introduce this to my fellow THNK’ers.

“In the increasingly complex and volatile social and business environments that organizations operate in, leaders who are unable to tap into and harness the full intuitive and innate intelligence of their multiple brains (head, heart and gut brains aligned together) are at a distinct disadvantage. A new field of leadership development is emerging, known as mBIT (multiple brain integration techniques) and it provides organizational leaders with practical methods for aligning and integrating their head, heart and gut brains for increased levels of emergent wisdom in their decision-making, and for developing an expanded core identity as an authentic leader.”

mBIT is a suite of tools and techniques for communicating with, integrating and harnessing the power of your multiple brains Head, Heart and Gut brains.


Since I finished THNK in september 2016, I come back to THNK FSTVL every year. The reconnection with peers, my classmates of class 9 and meeting new bright minds is a very intense and joyful gathering to experience every year again. Starting THNK one of my own personal quests was to step more out in the open with my beliefs and the subjects I’m working on. So I truly belief that sharing my journey and the content of mBraining could be of help for THNK’ers that are in the midst of making decisions in their Endeavor(s) or life challenges. Because it helped me make some fundamental decisions in my own workife.

In developing mBIT, what we discovered in essence, is that each of your brains has a competency that is its ‘highest expression‘ and that the three brains, when operating via these competencies, produce synergistic effects and bring greater wisdom to decision making, relationships and life. –

I prepared the session and actually I found it quite scary to do this for THNK’ers, because they’re so bright, intelligent and straightforward. So for myself it was a great training to step out of my own comfortzone and to actually do it. In becoming a MBIT Master Coach I even more felt my mission: Inspire and Scale Change. I’m integrating this powerful method in my daily work: bringing the heart back into business. How I do that is in creating, manifesting and integrating multiple possibilities for the people and organisations who I work with and making sure they are able to tap into their own greatness aka highest expressions. I also really believe that I can be of help in this great community of worldwide THNK’ers. When we are able to integrate this wisdom within our own system, THNK about the impact that it could have on all the people we interact with, the environment we live and work in, the projects that we work at. Yes, multiple mind-blowing if you ask me.

The highest expressions are Compassion (heart), Creativity (head) and Courage (gut). When all three work together they produce amazing results! –

The session itself was an introduction to the first phase of the mBIT roadmap: the communication phase. Already that experience gave people the experience where they are at in this moment. The beautiful feedback and the joyful connections made sure that I knew I did the right thing at the right moment. And with this comes the introduction of a new era for Heartcore. In 2020 I’m going to host intimate group sessions, starting with THNK’ers.

How to harness the intelligences of your multiple brains through the process of ‘mBraining’. –

Stay tuned because more cool stuff will follow soon.
