Today’s always-on work culture is full of constant meetings, calls and emails that make it nearly impossible to get focused work accomplished. Dr. Yousef and Professor Miller, UC Berkeley neuroscientists and founders of consultancy Becoming Superhuman, will share what behavioral science tells us about optimizing our experiences to regain focus and become more productive. Learn how to manage distractions, find time for your most important work, and stay connected in a balanced way. To make sure you get the most out of this session, Dr. Yousef has generously offered for every session participant to take a Biological Chronotype Assessment (5 minutes). The assessment allows a person to receive their individual energy profile and learn how to optimally schedule their day for peak performance (ideal times for focus, collaboration, and creativity). Complete the assessment at mychronotype.com with the project code: ‘ATTUNE’ and you’ll receive your individual results via email, as well as recommendations on how to optimally design your day for peak productivity.
