William Alan Donius: Groundbreaking Work That Dispels the Mystique of Creativity and Intuition with Instant Results. Publicly traded bank
CEO and former U.S. Federal Reserve Board member.
Donius demonstrates how to tap into the right brain – the place where intuition and creativity exist – in a simple, easy and dramatic fashion.
Donius has worked with this technique for a number of years.
Major thought leaders agree that in order to compete effectively in the increasingly global economy of the 21st Century, it is imperative that we think creatively to boost innovation.
Neither the neuroscientists nor the thought leaders are giving us
what we really need – the
HOW to do it –
HOW to think differently –
HOW to use our innate creativity –
HOW to tap into our inborn intuition.
The process in Thought Revolution is straightforward and simple. It involves using an individual’s non-dominant hand as the neural pathway to the right brain. It takes away forever the tired refrain, “I could never do THAT because of THIS.”
He is your guide for all those who become paralyzed at hearing the word “creative,” and who think that only a few specially anointed people have access to their intuition.
The participant poses a series of questions.
They could include “Am I lying to myself about anything?” or
”What is the highest and best purpose of my life?”
The question is answered first with the dominant hand and then with the non-dominant hand. The results are almost magical. In almost every case, the non-dominant hand (right brain) answer is totally different from the dominant hand reply (left brain) and begins to offer valuable insights into everyone’s multi-layered and textured personalities.
These exercises work the same way for right-handed and left-handed people.
Donius rose through the ranks of corporate America, ultimately becoming Chairman and CEO of a St. Louis bank, taking it public, and was responsible for its dramatic growth over a 20-year period.
He served on the U.S. Federal Reserve Board-TIAC Council in Washington, D.C. with Ben Bernanke.
Donius concluded that while he had used intuitive writing successfully in his professional and personal life, he felt the need to help others in mainstream America think different in the way that Steve Jobs and the folks at Apple had done so effectively.
Bill surmised that if he, a successful banker and confirmed “left-brainer” could unlock his own creative ability and intuition, then he wanted to help others to do it too.
He has conducted hundreds of interviews which proved to be an eye-opening “proof of concept” that resulted in writing
Thought Revolution: How to Unlock your inner Genius.
”After doing all the exercises that Bill suggested, I can attest that he delivers on his its promise: You can change the way you think and find your truth in whatever challenges you…THOUGHT REVOLUTION will set you free.”
Bill explained that by using your non-dominant hand that you can tap into new neural pathways between analytical and creative sides of your brain to use your intuition. He says that this has helped him to discover new things about himself, work out issues, foster revolutionary thinking, and improve his overall life. Then end of the exercise detailed how one answer to the question is aspirational and the other is representational.
Bill Donius has brought his thought revolution to hundreds of people through interactive conferences and speaking engagements that sometimes begin like this:
“Hello, my name is Bill and I’m a recovering banker.”
Bill begins his speech by introducing the audience to their right brains. His presentations tie together 50 years of research by neuroscientists in the field of split brain research and the practical applications of their work to tap into the independent consciousness of the brain’s right hemisphere.
He engages his audiences with real life examples and interactive exercise to demonstrate how our left/right brains work.
“The opportunity within the speaking arena is to alert people to what this work is actually about,” says Bill. “I introduce them to the methodology of right brain, left brain dominance but what is important is that the audience walk away with something tangible and specific to discover groundbreaking ideas and insights to rewire their perspectives.”
For Bill, this process is greater than an esoteric secret.
“This is more than just an interesting presentation about the brain’s complexity. The real objective is to apply this knowledge about the right brain and apply it now in our daily lives, and to be more intentional about how we can use these discoveries to turbocharge our thought process.”
Bill begins his presentations by highlighting historical, real life examples of how other thinkers have tapped into their right brains. He brings in the work of artist and author Dr. Betty Edwards with her revolutionary book Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain that explored the brain’s preconceived notions about drawing. He highlights the work of Lucia Capacchione, author of Recovering Your Inner Child, who explored how to heal childhood traumas by accessing the right brain to assist in the psychotherapeutic process. Bill also delivers more personal accounts of the hidden genius of the right brain through a story of his own.
“When I was the CEO of Pulaski we were looking at making a very big decision about expanding our operations,” he explains. “I did the traditional Benjamin Franklin rational analysis of pros and cons which is a very typical left brain thought process. That outcome resulted in a YES and confirmed everyone else’s thoughts to expand. When I did the right brain process, I got the total opposite result that expansion at that moment was not a good idea. Now, this was a very unpopular decision but I trusted my intuition that it made more sense to postpone expansion. Seven months later, we found that expansion for us became reasonable but only after a series of specific, timely opportunities. I’ve learned that it is hard to listen to our intuition because it isn’t quantifiable. With this process you can literally see your intuition on paper. It shows up in black and white.”
Milford, author and editor, agrees that Bill’s speaking methods allowed her to listen to her own inner genius. Milford had already successfully published several books but has found herself creatively blocked.
“After hearing Bill Donius speak about the non-dominant hand writing process, I was utterly captivated and wanted to learn more,” she says. “While I think of myself as a right-brain-creative-type, I knew Bill’s thought revolution was just what I needed to get ‘unstuck’ from my creative rut. In just 45 minutes, he helped me uncover the idea I was waiting for.”
Donius says. “It’s not just the simple act of writing with the non-dominate hand. There is a process behind it. Much like learning to ride a bike, this is a new process that is different and requires practice. This process is about transformation and helping people experience their creative and intuitive side sometimes for the very first time. They receive these ah-ha moments and it’s a mix of shock, awe, relief and validation that they aren’t going crazy and that this idea has been in the back of their mind all along.”
