The Decisive Brain
We are the result of our decisions; despite this most of us have more knowledge about how our smartphone works than our own brain. Isn’t that strange? In today’s society it is required that we are constantly developing and perform on top. But why is it so difficult to push yourself, face your fears, and dare to take on new challenges? With in-depth knowledge of how the brain works, we can better understand why we react as we do and how we make decisions in everyday life. How do we do to develop and motivate ourselves and our surrounding when familiar routines and habits feel so much more comfortable? Katarina Gospic reveal the secrets of the brain’s decision-making and gives advice on how you can make decisions that lead you towards your goals!
Work smarter – not more!
We look at our smartphone approximately one hundred and fifty times a day, that equals more than a thousand times per week! One study showed that we are interrupted every eleventh minute and that it takes approximately twenty-five minutes to regain the same focus as before we were interrupted. Sitting in an open plan office can reduce performance by up to sixty-six percent because of all the noise and distractions. Those sitting in great open plan offices also feel poorer and have higher sickness absence than those who have their own room. The way we work today is a disaster. We are constantly connected, most of us multitask and think it is a good idea and few people seem able to concentrate for more than a minute. From a brain perspective, the above methods and work environments are devastating.

During this lecture, Katarina Gospic, talks about what happens in the brain when we interact with others and how we can boost our personal brand by applying neuroscientific principles.
