LEAD Summit Afternoon Breakout Session: Overcoming Toxic Multitasking
This session, based on the book: “Make your Brain Smarter” by Dr. Sandra Bond Chapman, will demonstrate our inability to multi-task effectively. We will present nine strategies for maximizing our brain’s capacity for performance. Students will become aware of the dangers of multi-tasking and how to lead their teams (and themselves) away from this toxic habit. Through the session, students will learn to engage our creative capabilities to formulate innovative strategies and solutions, provide others with necessary empowerment, resources, support, and motivation to take action, and hone their question asking skills.
