Consultants Friederike Fabritius and Hans W. Hagemann call upon their decades of helping organizations understand and leverage brain science for better performance and productivity. They describe the influence of neurochemicals on human performance and detail scientific techniques and insights that can induce peak performance. The authors have created an engaging guide that will appeal to business leaders, teachers, parents, coaches and others interested in applying the latest neuroscience to improve individual and team performance.

About the Authors

Friederike Fabritius and Han Hagemann consult and lead leadership development training using lessons from neuroscience.  


Neuroscience Performance Lessons 

Fabritius and Hagemann understand that recent discoveries in brain science apply directly to business and leadership. They plumb new insights from neuroscience to guide more effective organizational decisions, whether in personnel, finance or other areas.

A better understanding of how your brain works can guide you toward achieving peak performance more often or even at will. People reach peak performance in different ways. Unfortunately, Fabritius and Hagemann find, very few people know how to put themselves into that zone. When you experience just enough stimulus to narrow your focus on a task, but not so much that it causes extreme fear or anxiety, you’re ready to enter the zone.
