Synopsis
This highly readable and thought-provoking book outlines and illustrates very simply how the organisational structures which we have inherited, and within which we strive to operate, are largely out of kilter with the optimal way in which are brains are set up to function. Our brains are designed to operate holistically, yet we live in a world fraught with disconnection, where the big picture is often obscured.

Starting with a general overview of the structure of the brain, Rita Baker examines the mechanics of learning, cognitive development, and implications for teaching and the development of critical thinking skills. Taking the brain as a model she then further considers the implications for the systemic management of organisations, and the potential for individual autonomy and responsibility within them.

All the areas of the brain are interrelated and interconnected: they need to function in harmony. The same could be said for the many aspects of our daily lives. This book highlights the essential connections, and encourages you to explore them further.
