Webinar: Get More Done in the Age of Distraction
Wednesday, February 20, 2019 | 10 AM PT/ 1 PM ET
With our 24/7 communications and hyper-fragmented work environments, how do Google, Adobe, and Evernote optimize their teams’ productivity and creativity?
Using the latest scientific research, UC Berkeley neuroscientists Dr. Sahar Yousef and Lucas Miller will teach you the same method they’ve perfected with Silicon Valley tech companies. Their main principle is understanding that today’s abundance of tech and communication tools are actually making us more distracted, busy, and stressed than ever before.
Join us on February 20, 2019, for a conversation on how to increase workplace productivity with UC Berkeley neuroscientists Dr. Sahar Yousef and Lucas Miller. We’ll discuss why it’s harder than ever to get work done at the office and share decades of research to improve focus and productivity.
- Why your smartphone, email, and collaboration tools like Slack are distractions that need to be minimized in order to be more efficient, productive, and creative at work
- How to redesign your day to take advantage of biological circadian rhythms
- What the ideal environment for focus and productivity for all employees looks like in order to reduce stress, avoid burnout, and help create a healthier and happier workforce
Carving out time to focus and do quality work is a requirement for any leader in today’s world. Sign up today for a unique opportunity to hear from leading researchers how you can improve the lives of your employees while helping them become high-performing and efficient.
