your phone rule your life?
Can’t resist checking
your smartphone or mobile device? Feel like you are “always on” at work?
Sure, all this connectivity keeps you in touch with your team and the office—
but at what cost?
In Sleeping with Your Smartphone, Harvard Business School professor Leslie Perlow shares with us
the cost of being always connected not just on our personal lives but on our
work lives and our broader organization’s productivity. But more
importantly she shows how you and your team can all disconnect at predictable
times and become more productive in the process. Yes - you can devote more time
to your personal life, have more predictability and control, and accomplish
more at work at the same time.
Join us as she gives us
the good news that this doesn’t require a grand organizational initiative or
buy-in from the CEO. All it takes is collaboration between you and your team—working
together and making small, doable changes.
She will be joined by
Debbie Lovich, a former partner at the Boston Consulting Group (BCG) who worked
with Professor Perlow at BCG to deploy the techniques she describes in her book.
who embraced these techniques were:
- 30% more likely to be satisfied with their work life balance
- 34% more likely to say they were working
efficiently and effectively
- and most importantly, 75% more likely to plan to stay at the firm for the longer term
based on Professor Perlow’s experience at BCG and beyond on how to launch the
process with your own teams. Join us to learn just how to not sleep with
