How has your week been? Many of the leaders we speak to say they have had a week where they are tired, forgetful, short-tempered and don't really enjoy what they do. Sound like you?

We call this being brain-fried. It describes how your brain feels when it is being overloaded, and is usually explained away as 'stress' or 'having too many things on my mind'. But there is another way. Some leaders are discovering how to be 'brain-friendly' using learnings from neuroscience to change their working habits.
