IN THIS SUMMARY

The modern workforce is made up of increasing numbers of knowledge professionals: people employed to solve problems, make decisions, and be creative. These people can benefit greatly by understanding the brain’s workings and the techniques that enhance its efficiency. In Your Brain at Work, David Rock explains why the brain can feel overburdened, why certain situations hinder focus, how insight can be gained more easily, and how to maximize mental assets. Using the examples of two professionals who go about their daily tasks, Rock sets up scenarios where cerebral limitations result in poor performance. He then describes the neurological workings behind each scenario and recommends mental techniques to achieve better results, repeating the scenario to illustrate the benefit of these techniques.
