Coaching: "Your Brain at Work" by David Rock

Our recommendation for anyone who has always wanted to find out how our brain functions is the book Your Brain at Work by David Rock. If you neglect the rather unspectacular title of the book, the author actually succeeds in illustrating what happens in one of our most important organs while we work. It becomes clear, why there are certain things that we are capable of doing in parallel, and other things, that demand our full concentration. Why we are exhausted after a regular office day, even though we haven't really done "much". Why our mental capabilities decrease by an average of 10% due to the permanent flood of incoming E-mails and SMS - by almost as much as if we consumed hashish.
David Rock not only gives explanations, but also offers solutions, how we can efficiently unfold our our intellectual potential.

The book is divided into four dimensions: Problems and Decisions,Dealing with Stress, Cooperation with Others and Enabling Changes 
Why is that of interest to you as an HR developer? It enables you to take part in the promotion of potential development on an individual and collective level. Individually, e.g. within the scope of specific coaching offers, collectively, e.g. by a conceptual incorporation into existing talent management programs.
