Our Brains Are Built For Connection

Human connection. That is what this episode’s guest loves.  He has spent two decades of research taking him from the Pentagon to Fortune 50 boardrooms to the rainforest of Papua New Guinea.  All this in a quest to understand the neuroscience of human connection, human happiness, and effective teamwork. He is now deploying neuroscience technologies to solve real problems faced by real people.

In this episode, Kevin Withane speaks with Dr. Paul Zak (aka Dr. Love) about:

  • Whether work should be an experience
  • The lesson learnt from spending time with a tribe in Papua New Guinea; and
  • Being a good leader sometimes involves listening to the employee gripes.

Paul is the author of Trust Factor: The Science of Creating High-Performance Companies.  You can get your copy from Amazon or Barnes & Noble, and all other good book stores.
