Learn this neural self hacking at the workplace. Bill Duane shows how to focus attention, foster compassion & sustain high performance through mindfulness.
Bill Duane, Google’s Superintendent of Well-Being who leads many of the company’s mindfulness programs, walked participants through a reflective exercise to focus attention, foster compassion, and support sustainable high performance with neural self hacking at the workplace
As “descendants of nervous monkeys”, Duane explained that humans are wired to react to stress with either fight or flight reflexes – responses poorly suited to the modern workplace. Humans must, therefore, retrain ourselves through mindfulness exercises to respond with compassion, rather than react with defensiveness.
