Your Brain at Work.
Dr. Rock is also the founder and CEO of the NeuroLeadership Group a global consulting and training firm with operations in 24 countries.
David’s programs synthesize the large body of scientific research on cognitive neuroscience and interpret the results in ways that help his audiences understand how the brain works and how to make it function more efficiently.
People ultimately become more open to changing the behaviors which hold them back when they understand the brain science behind it. David Rock shows participants not only how their brains are wired, but also how to optimize and build performance, helping to produce the most successful (and well-adjusted) teams and organizations possible.
Academically, David Rock is on the faculty and advisory board of Cimba, an international business school based in Europe.

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.
Dr. Rock’s programs synthesize the large body of scientific research on cognitive neuroscience and interpret the results in ways that help his audiences understand how the brain works and how to make it function more effectively. His presentation topics include the neuroscience of leadership, performance leadership, collaboration and influence, coaching with the brain in mind and quiet leadership.

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.
