Optimize your agile teams
In agile teams, people have to switch a lot and achieve immediate results with colleagues they often do not know. That does not always run smoothly.
In a long-term project it takes 2 to 9 months before you know how everyone works. Even in short occasional teams, inefficient collaboration takes time and energy. Miscommunication, delays, clashes between people - you don't want that.
BreinStijl helps you speed up. A valid tool that understands your new way of working: an online platform witth profiles of all of your colleagues, and tracks, tools, and tips to make the most of your different work styles.
Your brainstyle is your 'work style'. Style matters. Because your work style determines how you - and your colleagues - express your competence and skills. Indispensable to know about each other at work. And - this is unique: BreinStijl @ Work is the only "profile" in line with neuropsychology and thinking systems. What we measure is true. 95% of people recognize themselves in the results and want to get started right away.
Teaming as a skill
We believe in teams, but even more in teaming: the effective behavior that brings everyone on the team together to great results.
You learn teaming for yourself and take it with you to all your teams and projects. They are therefore also becoming increasingly effective. That is good use of your energy and your budget.
We make collaboration easy - all information, tips and tools are online. Are you stuck in a meeting? Quickly find the Handout Effective Meetings. Do you have a presentation tomorrow? With our Better Presentations tool you effortlessly captivate all styles in your audience.
We will send you emails full of inspiration and tips - of course only if you want to.
BrainStyle. Practical solutions. For your work, at the moments that matter.
You know the natural strength of all your team members. You can easily divide roles and tasks. You quickly choose the right people for new projects.
You understand your colleagues better, and they understand you. You appreciate differences and use them in a positive way. You complement each other and empower each other, even when there is stress.
You create a safe workplace, where every style is appreciated. That brings out the best in people. They feel happier, take more risks, and cope with change more easily.

Answers to your question
Here we answer frequently asked questions. Is yours not listed? Please contact us!
Yes, because we introduced a so-called disruptive innovation that has proven itself and the start-up phase is already over. Large and medium-sized organizations are already using the platform and we have only just started.
No, because the [email protected] method has existed for over 15 years, and renowned companies have been working with it for years. We have a network of (team) coaches who apply the method and several thousands of brainstyles have been determined.
A brainstyle is a neural network - connections of nerve cells in the brain - that is partly hereditary, and partly acquired. If you don't do anything, your preference won't change anytime soon; if you want to cultivate new preferences, you can do that with the tips we give (you have to persist to anchor them).
We display your mix of preferences in your BrainStyleProfile, see the image on the site. We call your highest preference your BrainStyle and the report describes this in 8 areas: thinking / acting, planning, deciding, communicating, energy, dealing with stress, learning, and pitfalls & solutions.
We also know that as human beings we naturally don't like difference - we think everyone is like us, and we believe that everyone should be like us. Usually we find out the hard way that this is not the case: miscommunication, irritation and clashes between people are the result. We want to help people to know and appreciate difference. And that in a sustainable way. Everyone knows the problem of "the fun workshop with the colors" and after that we do nothing in practice with the insights in each other. We think that is a shame. That's why we have an online platform with tips and tools and 100 other ideas!
We are constantly looking for new ways to serve you better, to allow your team or organization to collaborate and communicate even better. Do you want to think along with us? Gladly! Give us your comments at [email protected]
