We know that so many of you are feeling the pressure when it comes to getting everything done. Whether it’s skipping your lunch break, responding to just one more email in the evening, or feeling like you have achieved nothing when you have literally not stopped doing things all day, you’ve probably found yourself seeking out a productivity hack or two.
We’ve all been there! But this year we want to move beyond the hacks and learn to see productivity through a well-being lens. We want to learn how to structure our days in a way that aids our concentration and focus, rather than constantly detracting from it, so that we can spend our time more intentionally.
So, for our first webinar of the year, we’ve invited Dr Desiree Dickerson to share how to reset our relationship with productivity and build sustainable habits that will help us kick goals in 2024. As a clinical psychologist and former postdoctoral researcher in the neurosciences, Desiree understands the unique challenges of achieving work-life harmony while building a career within the health and medical research ecosystem.
During the session, we’ll explore:
- What it means to work smarter, not longer
- How to create a routine during times of constant change and find a rhythm that works for you
- Common thought patterns that hinder your productivity
- How to be more realistic when it comes to your to-dos
If you attended last year’s webinar on The Power of Saying No, you’ll be familiar with Desiree’s warmth and wisdom. For newbies, we think you’ll love her compassionate, evidence-based and practical tips.
This will be an interactive webinar and you’re welcome to participate as much or as little as you like. Feel free to listen in with little ones around, or use this opportunity to ask questions, share your own experiences, and connect with all the wonderful women tuning in.
