In this TEDx talk, Dr. Rock shares something he discovered five years ago, “Teaching people about their brain had a profound effect on their ability to understand themselves and understand others,” he says. “Teaching people about the brain made them far more effective at whatever they wanted to achieve.” He goes on to provide four reasons why he feels this is true.

The first reason he provides is what he calls the “novelty effect.” He explains that when you speak to anyone you are giving them a “novel perspective,” and this can be very useful. “It does get people’s attention,” he says. “The novelty effect is powerful, but it is so much more.” He continues by discussing the network of the brain, and how the novelty effect “opens up new connections” in this network.

    Your Brain at Work: Strategies for Overcoming Distraction, Regaining Focus, and Working Smarter All Day Long
    Meet Emily and Paul: The parents of two young children, Emily is the newly promoted VP of marketing at a large corporation while Paul works from home or from clients′ offices as an independent IT consultant. Their lives, like all of ours, are filled with a bewildering blizzard of emails, phone calls, yet more emails, meetings, projects, proposals, and plans. Just staying ahead of the storm has become a seemingly insurmountable task. In this book, we travel inside Emily and Paul′s brains as they attempt to sort the vast quantities of information they′re presented with, figure out how to prioritize it, organize it and act on it. Fortunately for Emily and Paul, they′re in good hands: David Rock knows how the brain works-and more specifically, how it works in a work setting. Rock shows how it′s possible for Emily and Paul, and thus the reader, not only to survive in today′s overwhelming work environment but succeed in it-and still feel energized and accomplished at the end of the day.
