When you describe what you do well or your top work skills, do you say you are a “multitasker?”
I see this term on so many resumes and LinkedIn profiles. People bragging about what great multitaskers they are and I’m going to share with you something about me and the people who work in my office. We don’t believe in multitasking. We believe that you should put your focus on one thing at a time, even in short bursts, to really do that task to the best of your abilities. Listen in to our recent Pillar Huddle for our thoughts about this and some supporting evidence on why you may no longer want to multitask or brag about this habit.
Want to watch the video we are listening to in our Pillar Huddle? Paolo’s presentation is very visual and you might hear us giggling in the beginning when we see his sweet mustache (you don’t want to miss that) so you may want to watch. Here it is!
