Employees today face many pressures in the Age of Overload: doing more with less, accelerating speed and the global 24/7 demands of always being ON. They’re fooled into thinking they’re more productive than ever. But is that really true? Overloaded populations grow accustomed to their discomfort. But upon further investigation, it’s clear their results are suffering.
In this fast paced and thoughtful session, we examine the critical difference between activity and true productivity, between cramming in more tasks and selectively choosing to dive into the right ones with thoughtfulness. We also meet and arm ourselves against The Thieves of Productivity, a group of positive assets that often run amok and trap us into performing low-value tasks. By examining the surprising downside of these attributes, we create a customized road map towards more WhiteSpace at the individual, team and organizational level.
Lastly we explore The WhiteSpace Simplification Questions – four simple inquiries that provide endless insight and positive reframing around even the toughest individual and organizational hurdles.
