TOPIC: Finding Focus & Improving Productivity in an Age of Distraction
. Technology and globalization have caused us to be always “on”. Fragmented focus saps creativity, diminishes productivity, breeds miscommunication and error, and boosts stress. How can we rekindle attention and create efficiencies in an era of multi-tasking and overload? At this session, join award-winning author and columnist Maggie Jackson as she shares provocative findings from her groundbreaking book Distracted: The Erosion of Attention and the Coming Dark Age. We also welcome Deborah Lovich, a former partner and executive committee member of the Boston Consulting Group, who will share her work with Harvard Business School professor Leslie Perlow that is improving work/life balance and productivity for thousands of BCG professionals around the world. Kaye Scholer litigation partner Lori Leskin will help us bring the conversation to the legal profession to uncover how the lessons learned can be applied and where the challenges will persist. Attendees will leave the session, inspired to examine strategies and steps in their own lives and workplaces to determine how to thrive in a high-tech, 24/7 world while rediscovering the powers of connection and reflection.
The first Law & Reorder® event was in November 2010. The first Law & Reorder® event for anyone who wants to attend in November 2010 or later is free with no commitment to join. If you've previously attended Flex-Time Lawyers LLC events or been a Flex-Time Lawyers LLC member before November 2010, your attendance at your first Law & Reorder® is still free. Once you attend or have attended your first Law & Reorder® program for free as of November 2010 or later, you can pick and choose the programs you want to attend for a $50 program fee per program. Or, you can choose to purchase a $150 membership fee that will cover your attendance for four consecutive programs, including the first free one you attended. If your firm or company is interested in learning about corporate memberships, entitling different representatives to attend the programs, e-mail Renee Newell at firstname.lastname@example.org
