Work Without Walls- An Executive's Guide to Attention Management, Productivity, and the Future of Work


SYNOPSIS | In the knowledge economy, your team’s brainpower—their intellect, creativity, learning capacity, and decision-making ability—is the key factor in their success at work. And their scattered focus dilutes that brainpower, hindering your organization’s ability to succeed.

Today's "always-on" work culture too often prevents your staff from producing what matters most: ideas, innovation, and meaningful results. How can you and your team be successful when exhaustion and frustration from 24/7 communications, changing priorities, and constant distractions are the norm?

Executives must protect their teams (and themselves!) from the high cost of chronic stress and burn-out. To achieve this and improve your company’s results, you must invest in how well you and your teams manage attention. When employees master attention management, they are more successful, engaged, and productive.

In Work Without Walls, Maura Nevel Thomas describes how to create a culture that improves productivity by focusing on:

  • Attention management
  • Efficient communication strategies
  • Achieving the most significant results
  • Off-site work with healthy boundaries
  • Office design that supports collaborative and focused work
  • Vacation and downtime
  • Work-life balance
  • Holistic well-being

In this book, you will discover specific action items you can implement now to make personal shifts and organizational changes that will support the well-being and long-term success of your team and your organization.

"If conventional wisdom now says that constant work is necessary for professional success, I can't think of a more important time to buck convention." ~Maura Nevel Thomas
