Podcast with author and Results Coaching Systems founder, David Rock

"When to do deeper work... the Goldilocks of the brain... we're talking about the most complicated thing in the non-universe: the brain... one of the things that activates strong emotions in a big way is uncertainty..."

Meet Emily and Paul, the parents of two young children. Emily is a newly promoted executive in a large corporation, while Paul has his own business as a consultant. Their lives, like all of ours, are filled with a bewildering blizzard of emails, phone calls, yet more emails, meetings, projects, proposals, and plans. For them, just staying ahead of the storm has become a seemingly insurmountable task.

Welcome to a Leadership Channel Podcast on TotalPicture Radio with Peter Clayton reporting. David Rock is the founder and CEO of Results Coaching Systems, which has operations in 15 countries across the globe. David works with Fortune 500 clients specializing in embedding internal coaching capacity within organizations to develop leaders, retain talent, improve performance, and change culture.

David Rock is one of the thought leaders in the global coaching profession. The integrated coaching system he developed in the mid-90's has been taught to over 10,000 professionals in more than fifteen countries.

He is the author of 'Personal Best', 'Quiet Leadership' 'Coaching with the Brain in Mind' , and 'Your Brain at Work: Strategies for Overcoming Distraction, Regaining Focus, and Working Smarter All Day Long' published in October, 2009 by HarperBusiness.

In 2004, David founded the brain-based approach to coaching, which has gathered momentum as a theory base for coaching ever since. In collaboration with several leading neuroscientists, David is working to explain the neural basis of issues like self-awareness, reflection, insight and accountability.

In Your Brain at Work, we travel inside the brains of Emily and Paul as they attempt to sort the vast quantities of information they're presented with and figure out how to prioritize, organize, and act on it. Fortunately for Emily and Paul—and for readers of Your Brain at Work—they're in good hands: David Rock knows how the brain works—and more specifically, how it works in a work setting. Your Brain at Work explores:

  • Why your brains feels so taxed, and how to take full advantage of your mental resources
  • Why it's so hard to focus, and how to better manage distractions
  • How to maximize your chance of finding insights that can solve seemingly insurmountable problems
  • How to keep your cool in any situation, so that you can make the best decisions possible
  • How to collaborate with others more effectively
  • Why providing feedback is so difficult, and how to make it easier
  • How to effectively change other people's behavior

Rock shows how it's possible not only to survive in today's overwhelming work environment but to succeed in it—and still feel energized at the end of the day, with a sense of accomplishment.
