Nr 1 in the Netherlands - bestseller 2021
For 99% of its existence, humankind has lived as hunter gatherers in small groups. Our brain is mostly the product of millions of years of life spent on the African savannah. We’re not nearly as rational as we think, and it’s time
to take the subconscious of our brain more seriously. Everyone seeks safety, belonging, appreciation, autonomy, and self-expression, and has to learn to deal with boundaries.
Successful leaders provide for these basic needs. They know that leadership styles and management theories don’t penetrate beyond the surface portion of our brain, a brain programmed for group survival, and have happy employees as a result. Investing in our psychological DNA leads to strong teams, job satisfaction, and organizational success.

- How you can create more safety, openness, cooperation, innovation, and ownership starting tomorrow, by using the tips from this book.
