Brains @ Work
What’s happening in our brains when we work
With Jean Gomes. Neural and cognitive sciences made some remarkable breakthroughs in the last years when it comes to understanding how the brain actually works. We talk about some of the new insights, e.g. why the brain’s predominant purpose is NOT thinking, but the focus of this episode is on understanding better what’s happening in real-world working situations. We talk about the effect of hierarchies on our brain, why we sometimes do not speak up although we dissent, and what conflicts do to our brains. But we also share some practical hints like when is the best time to tune into your body and brain or what to do in stressful situations.
