Best-Selling Author, To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others, Drive and A Whole New Mind.
We all know that timing is everything. Trouble is, we don't know much about timing itself. Our business and professional lives present a never-ending stream of "when" decisions. But we make them based on intuition and guesswork. Timing, we believe, is an art.
In this provocative and entertaining presentation, multiple New York Times bestselling author ,Daniel Pink, will show that timing is really a science-one we can use to make smarter decisions,enhance our productivity,and boost the performance of our organizations.
Drawing on a rich trove of research from dozens of fields, Pink will show:
How the hidden pattern of the day affects our analytic and creative capabilities - and how simple work rearrangements can improve our effectiveness,
Why breaks are more important than we realize and what the emerging science reveals about the kinds of breaks that are most restorative for the modern workplace,
Why reaching the midpoint of a project sometimes drags us down and other times fires us up-and how to tell the difference.
The four ways that endings shape our behaviour and how to use endings to spark motivation, improve customer experiences, and deepen a sense of meaning and purpose in the workplace,
How groups synchronize in time - and how leaders can use the three rules of "synching fast and slow" to turbocharge team performance.
Deeply researched, packed with takeaways, and tailored to each audience, Pink's presentation will leave you looking at your work, your organization, maybe even your life in fresh and invigorating ways.
