Think about creating spaces and opportunities for informal human connection. Can you start the day with a five-minute interactive process – even as simple as conscious breathing? How about reinventing the suggestion box – maybe a gathering in a ‘suggestion room’ – or ‘suggestion time’ to encourage collaboration and experiment? Remember your employees are at the coal-face of client and customer interaction – you as manager now more urgently need to optimise their experience and potential insight.
If you’ve ever ‘…gone with your gut’ to make a decision, or felt ‘butterflies in your stomach’ when nervous, you’re likely getting signals from an unexpected source: your second brain. Hidden in the walls of the digestive system, this ‘brain in your gut’ is revolutionizing our understanding of the links between digestion, mood, health, and even the way you think.
