Strengthen your brain’s executive skills

Strengthen your brain’s executive skills

This is a free textbook offered by BookBoon.

Sometimes referred to as” habits of the mind”, a person’s “executive skills” are those brain-based skills required to execute tasks – that is, such things as getting organized, planning, initiating work, staying on task, controlling impulses, regulating emotions, and being adaptable and resilient.

Up to twelve executive skills have been identified, according to recent books, and these skills primarily reside in the front part of the brain called the prefrontal cortex. In this book, Harold reviews each of the twelve skills, providing descriptions, the impact of weaknesses, and ways of both coping with any weaknesses and strengthening them – so that you can excel at managing your time, your professional achievements, and your life.
