Joined-Up Thinking: Why Two Heads are Better than One
At a time of existential global challenges, we need our best brainpower to solve them. Two heads are clearly better than one, says neuroscientist Hannah Critchlow. She reveals the ways to work best collectively – how to cope with wildly differing opinions, balance our biases, prevent a corrupting force, and exercise our intuitive ability for the most effective outcomes. She shares compelling examples of success, at work, in families, and all team situations, and shows us how to work, play and grow with intelligence.
Hannah Critchlow is an internationally-acclaimed neuroscientist, best-selling author, broadcaster and science populariser explaining the science of collective intelligence. Critchlow is a Science Outreach Fellow at Cambridge University. She has been named ‘Rising Stars in Life Sciences’ by Nature, recognised as a ‘Top 100 UK scientist’ by the UK Science Council and as one of Cambridge University’s most ‘inspirational and successful women in science’ for her work in science communication. Her expertise spans topics from decision-making, morals and ethics, resilience, mental wellbeing, boosting brain performance, intuition and creativity, collective intelligence, to communication and recruitment strategy. She shows how to cultivate our best brainpower to solve existential global challenges collectively, boost group thinking, and create genius environments.
