The Invisible Enemy: Can you name it?
September 29, 2016
Hosted by Gwendolyn D. Galsworth, Ph.D.
There is an enemy in your company—and it’s 100 percent invisible. You can’t see it because it literally is not there. Yet its impact is massive on every level of the enterprise, from board room to marketing to operations to the field staff. And the only way you have even the smallest chance of destroying it is by focusing on what it causes…its footprint. Can you name that enemy? Can you name its footprint? Join us this week as Gwendolyn Galsworth, your host and visual expert, reveals that enemy and shows you how to find it, stalk it, and destroy it. Hint: It takes 8 to 10 minutes to recover from an interruption, any interruption, no matter how long or short? To recover doesn’t merely mean to get back to the task-at-hand. It means: to get back to the level of focus and attention you had before the interruption. And some of us get interrupted so often that we are convinced interruptions are a part of our job description. In some companies, we are called supervisors. Tune in-Learn more.
