In their first book, neuropsychologist Fabritius and leadership expert Hagemann take a cogent, intriguing angle on leadership development. Leadership has long been treated as an art, they write, when it should be treated as a science based on a nuanced understanding of current theories about the brain. The authors, who run business seminars and coaching sessions based on their research and work, argue that understanding the neuroscience behind leadership is the best way to help business leaders and employees achieve their full potential. Fabritius and Hagemann cover the neurochemistry behind motivation, optimal stress levels, regulation of emotions, muscle relaxation, cultivation of gratitude, sharpening focus, the dangers of multitasking, and more. Where they truly excel is in their ability to translate complex neurochemistry into concrete actions that readers can take to make long-term adjustments, manage their habits, and foster a focused learning environment. Concrete, energetic, and accessible, this is a must-read for anyone who takes a science-backed approach to business. Agent: Jeff Herman, Jeff Herman Agency. (Feb.)
