Bernadette Lecerf-Thomas – Editions PEARSON /Village Mondial - August 2012 -
From individual talent to collective intelligence.
What is it about each of us that we are potentially talented at? How can we develop our own talents and mental agility? How can we articulate talents and cooperate with others?
In this book, Bernadette Lecerf-Thomas explains in a clear and accessible way how to use the discoveries of neuroscience to optimize our behaviors. Our reactions, our emotions, our decisions are the result of a long process that takes into account our history, our past experiences, and the fact that our brain is different from our neighbour's. So what happens when several brains collaborate?
Neuroscience is concerned with shedding light on the particularities and richness of human intelligence. Applied to management and learning, they allow us to better understand how everyone functions, individually and in teams. Knowing these mechanisms means equipping oneself with tools to develop talent, increase collective performance, reduce unproductive stress or increase motivation.
