The key to success in the knowledge economy is quality employee experience.
Executives must protect knowledge workers (and themselves) from stress and burn-out. How can you and your team be creative when exhaustion and frustration from 24/7 communications, changing priorities, and constant distractions are the norm?
Today's "always-on" work culture actually prevents you and your team from producing what really matters: ideas, innovation, and meaningful results.
According to Maura Thomas in Work Without Walls, "(in the knowledge economy,) the most important individual and corporate resources are neither time nor money, but body and mind." Her research and 20+ years of experience in the productivity field confirm that relationships and productivity suffer when people are stressed, and that greater employee happiness creates success and productivity, and is essential to deliver great customer experiences.
Author Maura Thomas describes how to intentionally create a workplace culture that nurtures creativity and improves productivity by focusing on high-quality employee experience through:
Attention management vs. time management
Effective communication strategies
Office design that supports both collaborative and focused work
Vacation and downtime
Off-site work with healthy boundaries
Each chapter provides personal shifts and organizational changes through specific action items you can implement now to support the well-being and long-term success of you, your team, and your organization.
"If conventional wisdom says that constant work is necessary for professional success, I can't think of a more important time to buck convention." (Maura Nevel Thomas)
