GrowBIG® Training Preparation and Information

1. Sign BIG’s Confidential Disclosure Agreement

Please sign the BIG’s Confidential Disclosure Agreement attachment prior to attending GrowBIG® Training and email the completed copy to Please also note we are only asking you to sign this agreement as an individual, not as a representative of your company.

2. Complete the HBDI® Assessment

The HBDI® assessment is an integral part of GrowBIG®. This 120-question survey results in a profile of your preferred thinking styles. By understanding your thinking style preferences you can achieve greater appreciation for how you learn, make decisions, solve problems, and communicate, and why you do these and other things the way you do. The survey measures preferences rather than skills. It is not a test; there are no wrong answers. Respond to the questions as authentically as possible, keeping in mind your total self, at work as well as at home.

The assessment should take you approximately 20 minutes to complete.
