Through his podcast series, Eat Sleep Work Repeat, and writing his latest book, The Joy of Work, Twitter’s VP EMEA, Bruce Daisley, has amassed a list of cultural killers of workplace productivity ahead of The Productivity Summit on January 31st, 2019.
LID Publishing is proud to partner with The Productivity Summit, taking place in London on 31st January 2019.
What is the Productivity Summit?
Britain is in the midst of a productivity crisis. The analysis shows that output levels have barely risen since the last recession, and there is a long-standing and now growing productivity gap between the UK and the likes of France and Germany. The Productivity Summit presents cross-industry case studies from UK businesses implementing productivity models and strategies, covering three main areas – systems and modeling, employee engagement and health and wellbeing. Living up to its name, The Productivity Summit offers an interactive and energetic programme intent on getting the most out of one day.
We hear from speaker and Twitter VP EMEA, Bruce Daisley about what to expect at The Productivity Summit and his views on productivity in businesses.
Can you give us a sneak peek about what to expect?
I’ve spent two years interviewing the most respected academics in the field of workplace psychology. It’s sent me on brilliant diversions. Who would have known that Frederick II – Holy Roman Emperor could have taught us a lesson about a sense of belonging at work or that we can learn a lesson about creativity from two knights from Manchester.
You’ll be speaking at The Productivity Summit on how to create a purposeful, healthy workplace culture. What are the core things that a business needs to address to achieve this?
We need to be more mindful of what works rather than what our gut instinct says. We’re all aware of the power of diverse teams, but when you study diverse teams the participants in studies often report that they started off feeling uncomfortable. While diversity is only one element of modern working this is a good reminder that if we’re doing what we think feels right it might not be the correct solution. Bosses making decisions about how things should e often acts as a barrier to us achieving breakthroughs.
What evidence is there to show that a healthy workplace culture drives productivity and outputs?
All of modern work is about achieving small everyday improvements. None of us are doing jobs where doing the same about as last year will be good enough for our bosses. We need to be achieving more. And it’s creativity that helps us do that. Simple ideas that improve on what we’ve done before. The evidence is really clear that stress kills our capacity to be creative. When we’re anxious our body moves the blood away from brain functions tasked with invention and into escape.
