Use your brain. Really.

I find myself enthused by the growing body of research examining the human brain.

Understanding brain functions directly parallels an athlete’s understanding of how muscles and joints and cardiopulmonary systems work – and can be improved.

Bruna Martinuzzi’s discourse on how knowledge of your brain can make you a better leader. I applaud the reference to Your Brain at Work, an excellent book by David Rock (nifty lecture at Google), and also encourage you to consider Dr. Joann Deak’s Girls Will Be Girls. [I met Dr. Deak at gcLi in 2008, and she spoke at the SAIS conference in fall 2009. You can check out Dr. Deak’s group here.]
