Friend or Foe?

18
Jun 2011

In his audiobook ” your brain at work” David Rock shares some helpful insights about why we act as we do in meetings at work. Our initial brain wiring sees new colleagues as threats, initiating the ” fight or flight” response.
Building trust comes from shared hardships and opening up on common challenges and past experiences. Then these individuals become business friends rather than foes and more can be achieved together.

Good luck in turning foes into friends
Warm regards Jonathan
