Understanding how the brain influences our behaviour is key for leaders to be able to build and grow their teams to realise their potential. Bringing this to the work environment, which is exactly what this book does, is a good recipe for success for ourselves, for our teams and for the organisation.

Through practical examples and exercises, she takes the reader on a journey of self understanding and motivation. Essential knowledge and skills for all leaders in developing high performance teams. Honourable Susan Lenehan, Board Chairman, former CEOand Government Minister Gail explains the latest knowledge from psychology and neuroscience providing executive leaders with powerful tools for managing their own behaviours and understanding the behaviours of others. Jon Isaacs, Fellow of the Australian Institute of Company Directors (over 17 years as a professional Executive Coach and Mentor) This book is practical and focused. What is particularly helpful is the structured approach, brief organised chapters and 'real world' examples. I found the tools for understanding ourselves and our environment helpful and challenging. I got more 'now I understand moments' reading this small volume of condensed wisdom than any other book in many years. A definite read. Shaun Browne, Director and CEO of AME Group This is an essential book for us all, particularly those involved in the coaching world. It reminds us that to succeed we must manage our thoughts. This book leaves me feeling joy as we can learn from the insights of modern research and use new skills for leadership, without an MBA. Phillip Hart, Director Phillip Hart Consulting, Master Coach, Mentor, Facilitator As an avid reader of leadership literature, I sometimes despair at the 'impracticality' of some books. The Brain's Business is different in that it contains plenty of tips and tools that a busy leader can apply in all aspects of their life. Ian Schubach, Co-Founder Peak Teams The Brain's Business brings to life the ever-increasing research on the importance of our brain and its plasticity to leadership. Thank you, Gail.
