Gab and Rob–One Brain, Three Minds

Gab and Rob Talking Risk – One Brain, Three Minds

imageIn this video, we introduce a model developed by Dr Robert Long from Human Dymensions called One Brain, Three Minds. This model helps explain how we make decisions using both the conscious and non-conscious parts of our brain. This video is a little longer than usual (around 7 mins) as we talk you through the model as well as explain how this has significance in the world of risk and safety. We hope that this helps explain things for you in a simple and practical way. As always, we’d love to hear your feedback and questions.

Cheers, Gab & Rob

Gab and Rob would like to make a lot more of these videos in the near future and would love to know what people would like to hear more about and topics they’d like to hear them discuss.
