"Technology allows us to rethink companies, organizations, how we run them and how we manage them. However, the most essential element in achieving success will not be technology, but whether we humans can adapt, cope and thrive. This inspiring book is a brilliant field guide on how to use the power of our minds to harness the power of flow and build organizations for resilience." Peter Hinssen, entrepreneur, keynote speaker and author of The Day After Tomorrow. How to Survive in Times of Radical Innovations.
Every crisis is also an opportunity. We know what we need to do to make our lives and work more brain-friendly, but somehow, we are still not putting that knowledge into practice. Covid-19 has forced us into one of the biggest experiments in resilience of all time. What if we see this crisis as an opportunity for a genuine transformation? A chance to adopt new habits that will make us stronger than ever and help us face a volatile future? In her ground-breaking new book, Elke Geraerts shows us how we can all be ready for the many challenges awaiting us in a post-covid-19 world. Her approach takes the brain as the starting point and inspires you to make brain-aware choices in work and in life. She shows how hybrid work can both increase your productivity and reduce stress, how you can chase your dreams even in times of crisis and why - in an increasingly digital world - focus is the new IQ. The old normal will never return... but perhaps that is not such a bad thing!
