Briefings Podcast #2: Brains Back to Work

Science shows a sharp drop in worker brainpower, reducing productivity and innovation. How leaders can help get it back. 

The latest science says people’s ability to think continuously on one topic (i.e., pay attention) has fallen sharply—almost 70% in two decades. That’s a real threat both to day-to-day operations and innovations that come from the deep thinking that companies thrive on. Our host discusses this attention crisis with Korn Ferry Institute Research Manager Amelia Haynes, exploring what can be done to bring focus back into the workplace.
