Reading this site –and the book it refers to: Brain Rules by John Medina– backs up my observations from years of working with children in classrooms, families, and adult clients.  Specifically, it details the ways our brains learn and function best, which is not at all how schools and work places are structured.  No wonder so many people struggle in these settings.  As we know from coaching, there is so much we can do to help ourselves create environments that are brain friendly.
