Work/Life Effectiveness: Work Smarter, Live Better
10:00-11:00 a.m., LBJ 2590
Tasia Moye', consultant
IN A CRAZY-FAST PACED WORLD, it's very easy to get caught up in a work style that makes us act before we think, reacting to devices and others all day. It's a pattern that leads to doing more than we can do well, stress, burnout, mistakes, and reduced productivity. There's a more productive way to work: managing demands, instead of having them manage us. This session will help participants make key adjustments to how they do their tasks and respond to stress, time frenzy, and other reflex behaviors.
