Bill Donius: Unlocking Your Brain's Hidden App

Bill Donius: Unlocking Your Brain's Hidden App

William Donius spent the past nine years conducting research with hundreds of test subjects to determine if his methodology for unlocking innovation, intuition and creativity could be applied to corporate America. The research findings were conclusive and led to his New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestseller, Thought Revolution.

Donius spent thirty years in corporate America in a number of industries, including health care, television production, and banking. Nearly twenty of Donius’ thirty years were engaged in the corporate world. Donius rose through the ranks of corporate America to become Chairman and CEO of Pulaski Bank in St Louis. During his tenure the bank grew eight-fold in size to $1.4 billion in assets. 

Thought leaders agree that in order to compete in the global economy of the 21st Century, it is imperative that we think creatively to boost innovation. The problem is that neither the neuroscientists nor thought leaders are giving us the “how to”: how to think differently, how to use our innate creativity, and how to tap into our inborn intuition. 

Donius was a left brainer for most of his life. The left hemisphere is known as the place where linear, analytical and logical thinking take place. Eighteen years ago, however, Donius discovered how to tap into his right brain and it revolutionized his life. He gained important insights about his personal life and was also able to apply his new skills to his professional life. 

Curious if his approach could apply to others, Donius departed banking. He interviewed hundreds of test subjects to determine if they could apply his methodology to break through barriers and gain insights about both their personal and professional lives. The journey resulted in many of the stories that make up Donius’ bestselling book that dispels the mystique of creativity and intuition. 

Since the book’s initial release in 2012, Donius has appeared as a guest on both National, as well as local television and radio shows. As a banker he was a frequent speaker at industry conferences. Currently, he speaks at business conferences about breaking through complacent conventional thinking to think differently about innovation and problem solving. His methodology offers a literal, “How To” “Think Outside the Box.” Additionally, Donius has adapted the methodology from the book into a strategic Ideation process he deploys to help both small and Fortune 500 companies produce innovative solutions.
