Red Brain Blue Brain

This is a book about how we are, how we got to be this way and how we could live differently to be more capable, self-determining and connected to others, ourselves and the wider world.

Back Cover:

We all have two mind states, the ‘blue zone’ where we are at our best – confident, collaborative and creative – and the ‘red zone’ where we become self-focused, impulsive and emotional, where we lack choice.

It seems we were born this way, but we weren’t.

The ‘red zone’ is a consequence of how we are brought up.  We learn to manage it to a greater or lesser extent, we all know we can do that.

But, we can also cause it to fade away.

A world in which this happens – a ‘blue zone’ world – is very different from what we experience now.  This book will help you to imagine what such a world would be like and will help to inspire you to work towards creating it.

Optimising Time, Attention and Energy

Do you think the way you think is ‘natural’?

It’s not. We have been shaped by our schooling to judge, compete and consider ourselves first. Our natural way is to accept, empathise and collaborate.

But we can change. Optimising Time, Attention and Energy shows us how to learn to open up new ways to become happier, healthier and more productive by exploring brain plasticity and understanding the specific roles of our left and right hemispheres.

Schools over-emphasise the development of the left hemisphere at the expense of the right. This book explains how to acknowledge the function of each hemisphere according to evolution’s design.

Through managing our attention well we can reshape the right brain’s role as first responder, providing a greater capacity to accept others and manage our own emotional responses. Managing our time effectively helps bring the left hemisphere back from the first responder role, allowing us to focus on the present and work efficiently without guilt about the past nor anxiety about the future.

Clearer direction reduces friction between two different worldviews thus boosting our energy levels. Now, that is natural.

Optimising Team Effectiveness

How do you know when you are participating in a ‘good’ meeting?

  • you feel the energy flow
  • the time flies
  • every participant learns something new during the meeting
  • you feel respected

Within companies, government agencies and schools, teams are now the fundamental unit of organisation. If an organisation wants to excel, it needs to influence not only how people work but also how they work together.

In the past, teams’ main functions were largely to do with coordination and management (‘vertical coordination’) and, although these continue to be important, teams are now expected to innovate and create the new.  Collaboration amongst diverse team members is fundamental to this shift (‘horizontal coordination’). 

It’s time to reinvent meetings for the 21st Century.
