Books we’ve loved recently
These books are packed with masses of strategic and practical advice - we've picked out a couple of points on how some of the content can help with wellness and performance. If you read the books, let us know how they help you and your organisation.
Alive at Work
The neuroscience of helping your people love what they do
Daniel M. Cable
Applications for wellness: individuals and teams are keen for success so let’s be creative about how we work (and live and teach and coach and train) to create engagement where there’s resistance and motivation where there’s frustration. Focus on developing a sense of purpose and passion at work (and with living a healthy life).
The Leading Brain
Neuroscience hacks to work smarter, better, happier
Friederike Fabritius & Hans W Hagemann
Applications for wellness: update your thought patterns to focus on what you want to achieve rather than spending time reinforcing outcomes you’d rather avoid. Know when good is good enough for some areas of life leaving you more time to spend on what you love and where you excel.
