As an executive coach I utilize brain based research to coach clients on how to use their brain more effectively in getting "stuff" done and having the life and career they have always dreamed of. I realized this is an excellent reference (and a very engaging read) when I have underlined so many ideas listed. At the end of each chapter there is a section that bullets how the mind works optimally, actions to take, and top tips for work-life balance making it easy to find just what you are looking for fast!
This is a book that everyone can use. You don't need a background in neuroscience. It is well organized, lots of good tips by using a story chronicling three people and their coach specializing in neuroscience coaching.
Excellent read!Make Your Brain Work: How to Maximize Your Efficiency, Productivity and Effectiveness
I really enjoyed it, but I also love learning about how our brain works and how we can use it to our full ability. The book is written in an easy-to-understand language, while still giving enough details and background information to sustain the claims made.
Make Your Brain Work covers such diverse topics as how our brain prioritizes, how we absorb new information, the way we deal with stress, controlling feelings and emotions, distractions, making decisions, focus, habits, conflicts, work-life balance, control, time versus energy, goals, motivation, meetings, presentations, leadership, sales and management. And all in less than 300 pages.
Of course books could be written, and have been written, on each of these topics, but for a quick insight with loads of practical tips and ideas I greatly recommend Make Your Brain Work by Amy Brann.
Broadly it is broken into three major sections with many chapters and many topics inside of chapters. The first section covers what you can do individually to change and is the largest in the book. The second section is a little shorter and deals with other people, things like motivating others, meetings, presentations, etc. The third section is much smaller and covers the company you work for.
This book is extremely well organized with many small topic sections and it needs to be because there is a ton of information in this book - it is very content dense. The book has summary bullet points at the end of each chapter that are very well done and effectively summarize the contents and the actions you need to take. There are a large number of references to scientific research. Due to the broad range of content this book is best digested in small doses and not long reading sessions.
