For centuries, we've grappled with the meaning of intelligence and the best way to measure it. We now know that intelligence is not fixed and each of us can increase intellectual capacity. Over the last few decades, advances in technology and neuroscience have illuminated fascinating discoveries about how the brain works and our capacity for learning, decision-making, problem-solving, communication and creativity. Scientists can now peek inside the brain to observe the factors that influence how we learn, process emotions, make decisions, and interact with others. 

Explore the amazing human brain and discover the neuroscience and behavioral psychology of stress, optimism, gratitude, mindset, and unconscious biases that influence our personal and professional lives and shape the mental models we construct of the world. From employee engagement and organizational culture to goal-setting and procrastination to relationships with others, Dr. Hughes mines recent brain-based research to deliver simple, applicable strategies that improve performance and outcomes in our professional and personal lives.
