Why does Beyondness elude so many people and organizations?

We are all born Beyonders but then stay with our brain preference through out our lives.Beyondness is to experience our ‘Whole Brain’

Who is a ‘Beyonder’

Dr. E. Paul Torrance(1915 – 2003), one of the fathers of modern creativity and innovation, coined the word “Beyonders” to describe those at the very high end of creative achievement. Beyonders share characteristics like passion, courage, an innovative spirit and emotional intelligence. Beyonders live above their circumstances, they do not see themselves as victims, they face their fears and- they work hard at what they want to achieve!

What is ‘Beyonder’ 

BEYONDER begins by giving leaders and teams  an opportunity to put a finger on where are they and their organization “ORDINARY

Focus of the Beyonder program would be to move you from  

Ordinary to Stretch to Beyonder outcomes

  • Beyonder focusses on the process to attain the essential amalgam of innovative thinking (a thinking to go beyond traditional and default thinking)
  • Its not meant to be an academic programme with the focus of research results and long reviews of the literature. There are a number of such programmes and books which will meet this need
  • The content of Beyonder is based on more than 20 years of creativity experience, thinking and action across US , South Africa, Japan, Europe, Australia, India , UK and African countries

Beyonder is drawn from:

  • Leading-edge research in last 30 years on Whole Brain Thinking by Dr. Kobus Neethling & Dr. Paul Torrance(University of Georgia), who is known as one of the fathers of creativity.
  • Research on brain preferences of “Ordinary” vs. Beyonder” individuals, teams and organizations
  • 10 critical factors of the ‘Innovative and Learning environment

The programme presents 3 models on ‘Beyonder’ and techniques on Whole Brain Thinking, that will assist in seeing beyond the ordinary and stretching the participants to produce the ultimate personal and organisational performance so that they can move from ordinary to beyond in the field of creativity, business strategy, relationships and decision making.


The programme requires that you lift your thinking to remain above the line (the line that divides above-the-line positive thinking and below-the-line negative thinking), freeing yourself from negativity:

  • to become a whole-brain(4 quadrant, 8 dimension) person
  • to apply whole-brain thinking to get to personal and organisational solutions
  • to gain insights into whole-brain creativity techniques
  • to develop strategies to give you and your organisation the creative edge


Client Stories

MD, Very large furniture company

A few years ago the consensus was that we would follow the national and international trends and show substantial losses. The opposite happened. Kobus Neethling and his team introduced the Beyonder Innovation Programme and the turn-around was remarkable. All our managers and sales teams were trained and profiled and started applying the learning immediately. We showed profits of 28%–unheard of in these tough economic times.’Beyonder Innovation’ is now our culture

Director, Tele Marketing Company

This was the best training we have ever received. The results were immediate. The focus was on finding solutions and to move away from a problem-oriented organization and this worked for us. Our profits went way above our expectations; we are opening new offices all over and there are just no limits anymore. There is aliveness amongst all our employees and the clients are now more positive towards us than ever before. We are keeping our association with Kobus Neethling. We have the policy in our company that every employee must attend the Kobus Neethling Creativity Training Programmes. An in-depth audit of our company showed very clearly that the positive turning point for our company came immediately after our senior management team returned from their first Kobus Neethling Innovation Training Course. I believe you cannot reach levels of excellence in our kind of work if you have not been trained in the NBI —as simple as that

Director, Large Phosphate Company

We were so inspired by the training we received from Kobus Neethling and his colleagues that we eventually sent more than 200 of our managers to be trained. This training did not only increase our ability to think and do creatively but had a positive effect on relationships, customer care and the general climate in our company. I believe that Kobus Neethling’s Innovation Approach and understanding how to apply the NBI instruments opens up the mind in a way that no other training does. It is not something that disappears overnight –the effect lasts for a very long time.

Director, Large Cosmetic Company

It was not long after implementing The Kobus Neethling Innovation Programmes when we started to experience positive results on many fronts. Our sales people were able to communicate remarkably better with our clients; we all understood the needs of our clients so much clearer and the ability to use our 4 and 8 dimensional thinking in problem solving changed everything for us. Six months after implementing the KN programme and applying the instruments our profits rose by 54 percent
