Show Topic:
In business, we have information coming at us a mile a minute. Some of it’s useful, some of it not-so-much. At the same time, each of us (and our employees) have lives outside of work.

Big things, little things, old things, new things, all the things that we carry with us that makes us who we are–but which also can interfere with productivity and general ability to be “present” at work.

In this episode of HR Power Hour, join host Tawny Alvarez, as she talks to Dr. Amy Wood, psychologist, about ways that high performers can defy disruption and improve their focus.

From understanding the effect technology has on our lives–both how it helps and hinders productivity–to how clutter in the work environment is adversely affecting our ability to think clearly, this show will be packed with helpful tips to improve your and your team’s focus.
