How to engage the people you lead or need to influence. Based on five proven principles of brain science, ‘The Brain-Based Boss’ is a book of practical workplace-ready tools for leaders who want to motivate their staff to motivate themselves and to contribute to their own personal and professional success. Written in a user-friendly and engaging style, ‘The Brain-Based Boss’ aims to teach leaders how to encourage their staff to: exhibit greater self discipline; develop a growth-oriented mindset and a goal focused approach to their work and to spend a greater proportion of their working day in an optimal productivity state of “flow”.
Getting Better Buy-In
A leader's motivational handbook. Practical things a frontline leader can do to make a difference. The thing about behaviour change is that you can’t do it for them, nor can you always be around when the going gets tough. For those people doing the actual moving towards behaviour change, they need to: want to do it, think they need to do it, think they can do it, and think they should do it now. The combination of all those conditions is what we label ‘motivated’. What can you do to make that more likely to happen? This book gives you tools, techniques, systems, structures and environment design ideas to make that happen.
Live Work Love
Our longevity, health and quality of life are due 30% to genetic luck and 70% to our choices and behaviours. We’re dealt some cards and this book is about how to play the best hand, given those cards we’ve been dealt. No one wants to live forever but most of us would like to get the most out of whatever we’ve got coming. The vast majority of us would like to keep on going until we don’t, not taper off to a long unhealthy tail of life. Regardless of how long we have, how do we stay healthier longer, optimise our happiness and productivity, and make it all worthwhile?
