Why We Do What We Do is an interesting read for anyone facing personal or business challenges and wanting to discover how to better respond to today’s climate of sudden and fast-moving change.

Originally self-published in collaboration with author, Dr. Helena Boschi, a psychologist specialising in applied neuroscience, the latest edition is published globally by renowned publisher Wiley with new content providing insight into neuroscience, brain-gut health and behaviours relating to the impact of COVID-19.

“It is human nature to seek clarity and answers amongst the plethora of information provided. Never has it been more important to forge a path through this ambiguity and feel in control. ‘Why We Do What We Do’ provides valuable insights into human behaviour and helps answer questions around our natural responses to environment”
- Dr Helena Boschi, author and neuroscientist

Why We Do What We Do combines scientific research with concrete examples and illustrative stories to clarify, in an easy-to-understand way, the complex mechanisms of the human brain and how it affects our behaviour every day.

A wide range of topics are examined, unveiling different facets of the brain with practical tips and ideas for understanding our behaviour, physical and mental health, communication and decision-making.

We've partnered with Helena to launch Neurocomms, an enhanced communications offering which applies neuroscience to communications strategies for Lansons Change & Transformation Communications services, facilitating the application of key messages contained in the book. Through an understanding of the human brain and the science behind what we do, Lansons can enable organisations to create the right communication strategies to make people feel respected and engaged.
