Smarter Faster Better: The Science of Productivity

In this webinar, Charles Duhigg looks at what separates the merely busy from the genuinely productive by exploring how Google sought to build the perfect team, how West Side Story became a hit, and how an airline pilot landed a critically injured plane.

What will I learn?

Productivity is often measured by the speed at which we tackle our to-do lists. Real productivity, however, comes from thinking differently: Managing how we identify goals, construct teams, direct our focus and make decisions.

In this webinar, Charles Duhigg looks at what separates the merely busy from the genuinely productive by exploring how Google sought to build the perfect team, how West Side Story became a hit, and how an airline pilot landed a critically injured plane.

At its core, productivity is about pushing ourselves to think more deeply - and building the communities that help us avoid becoming busy, and rather doing what is meaningful and real.
