Working from home is the new reality for many of us. We’re surrounded by distracting technology. Our kids or spouse may need something in the middle of a task. We see a notification and feel pressured to respond immediately. Does this leave you unfocused, unhappy, and struggling to find time? This two-part session will introduce a new tool and provide a hands-on experience to working more productively individually and with your teams and clients.

Part One introduces the neuroscience behind the Caveday methodology for overcoming distraction and pushing past internal resistance. This includes a short Cave “sprint” applying the methodology to a task.

Part Two provides best practices and tactical tips to maintain and build strong work cultures on remote and hybrid teams.

You will finish this 75-minute session and get some work done!

Session Assignment: Bring a short task (about 10 minutes to complete) and materials to complete it. Example: E-mail response or organizing files.

Key Takeaways    

•    Explore the science behind why it’s so hard to focus and what we can do about it
•    Apply the Caveday methodology to avoid distraction, overcome procrastination, and minimize decision fatigue
•    Discuss ways to keep ourselves, our teams, and our clients motivated when working remotely
