Brain On!

Mental Fitness Strategies for Sharpening Focus, Boosting Energy, and Winning the Workday

If you want to be more mentally prepared for each workday, then BRAIN ON!

The most powerful technology ever known is already in place—your brain. As incredible as that organ is, it hasn’t received an update. Your brain is meant to keep you safe (and it does that very well!), but you must improve your operating system to reach your goals, find joy, and get results at work.

Negativity occurs when you’re not conscious about how you use your brain. This leads to overwhelm, distraction, burnout, and other workplace stressors. In Brain On!, Deb Smolensky is your coach to retrain your brain through strategies that will help you improve your mental fitness and find your way through the complex and changing world. As one of the leading authorities on human performance and workplace well-being, Smolensky knows that just as we need to work out our muscles to get physically stronger, our brains need exercise to be more resilient and aware. 

Whether you are an ambitious individual wanting to stay energized, efficient, and fulfilled or an organizational leader who wants to elevate your workplace culture, Brain On! is your manual for improving your mindset and being victorious each workday.
