Just when I thought I’ve read enough articles on the perils of our never-ending work weeks, I came across this gem. You won’t be surprised to learn that time spent on email, IM/chats, phone, and video calls now consumes 85% or more of most people’s work weeks. No question that these invisible demands are hurting organizations’ efforts to become more agile and innovative. They can lead to career derailment and burnout—not to mention declines in physical and mental well-being. Most helpful, though, are the author’s organization suggestions to alleviate the negative effects of collaborative demands: using storytelling to enable others to envision where you need to be; capturing hearts and minds by sharing why something is important; and allowing for questions and reflection. Please reach out to me to discuss your organization’s performance and retention challenges as we together navigate these difficulties.
