Recommended Read: Noise (ebook)
This week we're recommending Noise: Living and Leading When Nobody Can Focus by Joseph McCormack
From the publisher: In the current digital age, it is becoming increasingly more difficult to stay focused. Smartphones, tablets, smart watches, and other devices constantly vie for our attention. In both business and life, we are constantly bombarded with tweets, likes, mentions, and a constant stream of information. The inability to pay attention impacts learning, parenting, prioritizing, and leading. Not surprisingly, attention spans have gotten shorter. Already being pulled in a dozen directions every minute, managers and business leaders often struggle to address important issues and focus on everything that needs attention.
Noise: Living and Leading When Nobody Can Focus teaches managers and leaders how to help themselves and others sharpen their focusing skills. In this follow-up to his first book Brief―the proven, step-by-step approach to clear, concise, and effective communication―author Joseph McCormack helps readers cut through the static and devote their attention to what is important.
