TIP OF THE MONTH
Unplug to Connect
In a recent article from CNN, Apple CEO Tim Cook lamented the modern challenge employees face as members of the digital workforce — we use our phones too much. The need to stay connected can often overshadow other activities that require attention and focus, such as being present in a meeting. Meetings are perhaps one of the most important drivers of innovation and action a company can leverage. Getting your team in a room to trade ideas or drill down on a difficult problem can strengthen work relationships and hone a shared company language, but only if everyone in the room is unencumbered by distracting devices.
Companies such as Skift have gone the extra mile in policing device use at meetings by banning them from board and huddle rooms. The move highlights the importance of respect in the workplace — if you’re on your phone in a meeting, you aren’t fully engaged and are doing a disservice to your team. When workplaces make sure employees unplug to connect with each other, the benefits are almost immediate:
Unplug! Connect! Collaborate! Produce!
