Event description

Description

In a hectic work environment where leaders and team members are being pulled in multiple directions, increasing demands for time and attention can be a bottleneck to productivity. Without a game plan, confusion, procrastination and “busy work” dominates over moving toward higher goals. Research from psychology can provide effective strategies to choose priorities that separate signal from noise, focus attention to engage in deep work, and develop habits that invest limited resources on what really matters.

In this workshop, we will:

  • Explore how understanding the cognitive architecture of the mind leads to developing a working plan to handle daily challenges with optimized solutions
  • Develop a culture for productivity that promotes deep work and movement towards a goal
  • Learn about digital tools to integrate into workflows to shift our resources to important tasks like strategic planning which also deserve attention
