The Neuroscience of Helping Your People Love What They Do

Daniel M. Cable

An interesting book of short stories about how managers activate what is known as “the seeking system” in their employees. The seeking system is basically a neuroscience term describing the state of pleasure and curiosity generated when we do certain work. I cannot stop relating this to some moments happening to me in the past when I was as if hypnotized by an unknown force and ended up spending several hours working (designing a website, making a logo or drafting a story) without any awareness of time.
.
Even though the book is managers-oriented, I think it is helpful reflecting on how our brain works and apply the knowledge to self-trigger our own “seeking system.”
