The Social Brain
"Ever since the Industrial Revolution, an engineering mindset has dominated management thinking, making it easy for managers to forget that, ultimately, productive work is human. This wonderful book reminds us that businesses are also biological and social: created by living beings who can – and want to – transcend individual capacity with collective intelligence. It could not be more timely, wise and useful."
The Social Brain at Work is the result of a long standing partnership between Oxford Evolutionary Psychologist, Robin Dunbar and Leadership and Organisational specialists, Tracey Camilleri and Sam Rockey. The book combines scientific research with interviews with over forty people, leading in diverse environments – government, orchestras, theatre, medicine, military, business and design, to name a few.
