One thing common to nearly every HR role, is the need to juggle lots of different priorities effectively. Multi-tasking’s often a valued skill, and one in which we may take pride. But is it really productive?

In this session, we’ll explore when multi-tasking works best. You’ll learn straightforward ways to make the most of your mind’s capacity, and stop a few of its common habits from getting in the way of you performing to your best, especially when there’s a lot to get done.

During this session you’ll discover

  • Why 4 is your mind’s magic number
  • How to more easily clear your mind between tasks
  • Some straightforward ways to avoid getting overloaded
  • And how not to take on more than you can manage, without anyone feeling let down
