Webinar: Managing Distractions at Work

How many times do you think one of your employees was interrupted yesterday at work? Multiply that number by 25. That’s how many minutes of concentration one employee is losing. Distractions at work not only hurt an employee’s productivity, they can derail mental progress for up to a half hour afterward and they also have been shown to have negative emotional effects – higher stress and a bad mood.

Join Big Think Edge for a 30-minute webinar with Carson Tate as she explores the critical strategies and tools leaders can use to ease the impact of distractions on their employees.

Key Takeaways of the Session:

  • How our brains are wired to distract us and the impact on individuals, teams and organizations.
  • Why shaping physical space is essential for managing distractions and attention at work.
  • Three essential steps organizations can take to mitigate the impact of distractions on its employees.

Carson will speak for 20 minutes, followed by a brief Q&A. Registration is complimentary but space is limited- sign up now to reserve your place.
