Donius, Linkedin, William (Bill) Donius or Twitter @bdonius.<br /> <br /> <strong>Thought Revolution</strong> demonstrates how to tap into the right brain -- the place where intuition and creativity exist -- in a simple, easy and dramatic fashion. The author takes readers on a journey that will set them free -- and it all begins a unique methodology from tapping into the right brain, "on demand." Donius' method draws upon the work of Nobel Prize winning Roger Sperry, MD, who, in the mid-fifties, demonstrated the lateralization of brain functioning.<br /> <br /> In order to compete in the global economy of the 21st Century, it is imperative that we think creatively to boost innovation. The problem: Neither the neuroscientists nor the thought leaders are giving us what we really need -- <em>the how to</em> -- how to think differently -- how to use our innate creativity -- <em>how to tap into our inborn intuition</em>.<br /> <br /> <strong>Thought Revolution</strong> becomes the guidebook for all those who become paralyzed at hearing the word "creative." Donius is a frequent speaker on the topic of innovation and ideation and takes his Ideation methodology into Fortune 500 companies as a problem solving tool. <br /> <br /> Donius rose through the ranks of corporate America, ultimately becoming Chairman and CEO of a major St. Louis bank. He was appointed to a year year term to the U.S. Federal Reserve Board-Banker's Council in Washington, D.C. He served on a number of boards including America's Community Bankers, St. Louis Art Museum, Barnes-Jewish Hospital, Forest Park Forever, ARCHS, and Maryville University. <br /> <br /> Donius attended the A.B. Freeman School of Business at Tulane University and CEO Program at the Kellogg School at Northwestern University.
