Dr. Karolien Notebaert and Peter Creutzfeldt have worked together on a new book project. Published in April 2015, it provides guidance on how to handle the increasing challenges of everyday business in a more stress-free manner, while still improving one's own performance. Dr. Karolien Notebaert and Peter Creutzfeldt are part of HGS Concept's neuroscience project team. There they work on the development of methods to make the findings of current brain research available to companies. The publisher writes: "Does this sound familiar? Getting up at 6 am. Checking emails at a red light, and hoping not to catch too many green lights in a row. Has anyone responded to the proposal from last night? The day is fully booked with meetings. An important lunch with a colleague who wants to take over a project. That shark! In the evening, going out for dinner with business partners. Then checking emails again. Falling asleep quickly after one or two glasses of wine and waking up with a start at 3:30 am because the presentation for the next day is still pending. Stop! Are you quite exhausted just from reading this? Do you often catch yourself thinking that performance can be continually improved? How can this come to any good? With the help of brain research and many years of management experience, the neuroscientist Karolien Notebaert and coaching expert Peter Creutzfeldt show how to handle increased efficiency, increased accessibility and permanent multitasking using 'mindfulness'. In addition, they show how this method can also positively influence physical and mental fitness. Simple exercises, scientifically proven, cause structural changes in the brain that improve its function. These are convincing methods by which you can increase your productivity and reduce stress." We recommend this book for all those who want to learn more about their brain, its potential and how to boost it.
