This book takes a new and different approach. A brain-savvy approach. The latest findings from neuroscience show us how to work with how brains have developed to better lead, harness energy and create organisations that work with our brains not against their natural functioning. The book lays out a number of principles gleaned from neuroscience and other behavioural sciences and shows, via practical examples of the science application how businesses and leaders can improve what they do and how they do it. Case studies illustrate what other companies have done and each section includes tools to apply the science in everyday business.
