We now know more about the brain than in the last 100 years of brain science research. There is an average of about 1 brain science study coming out every 3 hours. The US Government just funded a massive and complex research project to study the brain and to map its neural pathways. European counterparts in science are looking at how to mimic the human brain using computing technology. All this coupled with the vast strides we are making in the various affiliated neurosciences (evolutionary biology, experimental philosophy, neuroeconomics, performance based psychology, social cognitive neuroscience), computing technologies (exponential improvements in price per computing power per size of chip), nanotechnology, biotechnology and artificial intelligence – we are facing an age where it may be possible to not just understand the brain, but also figure out how to use the brain effectively for the most important parts of our lives.. and for our business.
The applications of brain science to business are clear and almost stupefying. We have turned our previous understanding of the brain (some closely held notions of the brain) into ancient superstition. For example, we used to think that the brain stopped developing past the age of early adulthood. We now know that that brain retains its plasticity (ability to grow new brain cells) right through old age. We are understanding the unconscious more so than before, leaving some of Freud’s and other luminaries’ ideas in the dust. Why is this relevant to business and professional work life? We now understand the following better:
b. How to coach people in your team more effectively with less chance of having them feel threatened?
c. How to emotionally regulate i.e. manage and resolve emotions like fear, frustration, anxiety, worry etc.?
d. How to relate better and more effectively with gender differences and .. similarities?
e. How to make better decisions with the increased awareness of how your brain works .. and does not work?
f. How to optimize your brain functions through proper health and stress reduction practices?
g. How to manage and increase your willpower over time?
h. How to manage and lower your stress over time?
i. What is the relationship between improved brain performance and having breakthroughs in creating More Money, More Free time and Less Stress?
