Let’s face it: We’re all guilty of working on “autopilot” from time to time. Occasionally, it’s even beneficial! But when autopilot is your primary mode of operation, it becomes extremely dangerous. You can end up missing important details and opportunities, which can lead to bad decisions, wasted time and energy, and other (more disastrous) career consequences. If you’ve been sleepwalking through your workdays lately, it’s time to re-engage your brain! Being physically present isn’t enough to succeed; you also need to be mentally present.
In this session, you will learn…
- The pros and cons of “automatic” thought and action (it’s not all bad!)
- How and when to use autopilot to your advantage—and the brain science behind it
- Signs that you may be unintentionally stuck on autopilot and how to quickly shift out of it
- Simple strategies to stay mentally engaged with your work, without exhausting yourself
