Productivity Beyond the Information Age
Work-life in a complex, information laden environment requires us to re-define what we mean by “Productivity.” To truly be productive demands that we can manage our focus and attention amidst information overload and a constant stream of distractions. This short, highly interactive session defines the essential skills, tools, and techniques that strengthen the key abilities and mind-set necessary to function effectively.
Too often we get overwhelmed by complexity. Inundated with data and information flow, our decision-making process breaks down and we find ourselves in “reactive mode.” Our ability to be pro-active and strategic gets buried beneath the pile of data, and we can easily lose sight of what matters most. The presentation provides strategies that enable the ability to focus despite distractions, and take calm, clear action in the face of complexity.
- Identify conditioned behaviors which lead to sense of distraction and overwhelm
- Understand the pitfalls of distractions, digital addictions, and multi-tasking
- Obtain strategies to manage distractions more effectively
- Create the conditions that enable you to deliver results on time
- Define a structure that supports effective organization of all plans and action
