- Learning and retaining information more efficiently
- Improving complex decision-making

From Publishers Weekly

Dec 05, 2016 – In their first book, neuropsychologist Fabritius and leadership expert Hagemann take a cogent, intriguing angle on leadership development. Leadership has long been treated as an art, they write, when it should be treated as a science based on a nuanced understanding of current theories about the brain. The authors, who run business seminars and coaching sessions based on their research and work, argue that understanding the neuroscience behind leadership is the best way to help business leaders and employees achieve their full potential. Fabritius and Hagemann cover the neurochemistry behind motivation, optimal stress levels, regulation of emotions, muscle relaxation, cultivation of gratitude, sharpening focus, the dangers of multitasking, and more. Where they truly excel is in their ability to translate complex neurochemistry into concrete actions that readers can take to make long-term adjustments, manage their habits, and foster a focused learning environment. Concrete, energetic, and accessible, this is a must-read for anyone who takes a science-backed approach to business.

Customer Reviews

An excellent read on personal and team performance enhancement

I really enjoyed reading this book, it is nicely laid out quite to the point with good sets of examples and resonates with me quite a lot.

I tried the exercises prescribed and the worked wonders, I also saw how teams operate effectively and with “flow” and how amazing the results can be and this book captures it all.

I would recommend this book to any leader who wants to both improve his personal and his team’s performance.

I am taking the lessons form this book with me to my work environment and I am confident I will see great results.
