The Multitasking Myth - Making the Shift Together

November 26 - 8:30AM - 10:00AM

More and more people are recognizing – thanks to research and popular discussion – that the idea we can “multitask” is a myth. But even for those who’ve recognized this reality, there’s a problem: multitasking is still an expectation in many workplaces, and it’s become a habit in day-to-day life.

In this presentation, we’ll review the brain research that has shown us what’s really happening in our brains when we think we’re multitasking, and what the short-term and long-term effects are on our ability to focus. We’ll then turn to an interactive discussion about how we can shift the culture of multitasking that has taken hold in our workplaces and our homes, so we can recover our ability to focus and our ability to interact with colleagues, and with loved ones, in meaningful ways.
