We have all had to make changes to adapt during these past months and we have done our best job possible. Now, as we look forward and adjust to this new reality, we can take time to reflect on our way of working to proactively set up positive routines that help us to be more productive and to feel good about ourselves.

The Power of Habits
Introduction to the habit loop (routine, cue, reward) and how quickly bad habits can form. Data on professional habits that impact our ability to lead. Following, we will each select a habit to analyze (I will use the habit of distraction) and consider ways to hack the habit for more effective behavior that will positively impact my productivity and leadership.

The Science of Willpower
We will briefly consider what willpower is and ways to increase our will power to positively support decision making in making habits stick, quickly touching on the importance of setting up positive and productive basic routines (sleep, diet and exercise)
