\We know more about our cars than our brains. David Rock wants to fix that.

He believes that learning about your brain can have similar benefits to practicing mindfulness, without the sitting quietly part.

Take a walk through what we know about the brain that everyone should know, what we’re still unsure of, and what is still a downright mystery. You’ll find this talk full of sciency-insights and surprises, and it might just possibly make you a smarter human.


David Rock is the author of four books, a researcher, and the CEO of the NeuroLeadership Institute, whose vision is to make organizations more human through science.

He coined the term NeuroLeadership and has written dozens of research papers on the deeper science of leadership development, learning, and change. He is one of the leading thinkers influencing how organizations everywhere manage and develop their people, with over 4,500 companies following his work including 30% of the Fortune 100.

Originally Australian, he lives in NYC and where he heads up a team of around 200 scientists and consultants.
