The Productivity Myth
- Encourage team members to proactively block off chunks of time to be productive. This could be done systematically as a team, e.g. Every day from 10-12 is a meeting and e-mail free zone for the entire team, or recommend each person block 6-10 hours per week for “work” time.
- Block productive time before scheduling meetings. Many will plan meetings first and then try to find productive time with what’s left.
- Dissuade team members from multitasking (or in other words, allow email to interrupt focused work time). It takes about 25 minutes to return to the original task with the same concentration level after an interruption. Prioritizing email constantly throughout the day is a productivity killer!
