Do you feel you are “always-on,” continuously checking email, and working long hours? Most organizations have created always-on work contexts that burn people out and hurt performance rather than delivering productivity, innovation, and engagement. Collaborative work consumes 85% of employees’ time and is drifting earlier into the morning, later into the night, and deeper into the weekend. Through in-depth stories and tools, bestselling author and leadership expert Rob Cross will show you how to break your work addiction and reclaim close to a day a week by:

  • Identifying and challenging beliefs that lead us to jump into collaborative work too quickly
  • Imposing structure in our work to shield from unproductive collaboration
  • Altering behaviors to create efficiencies in collaborations
  • Cultivating and then mobilizing a broad network – not a big one – for innovation and scale
If you will need special accommodations, please contact the event organizer.
