Mobile technology – and smartphones in particular – are an amazing window on the world; a portable connection to billions of people and access to the sum of human knowledge.
You want to have the best window that you can, of course, but the real power comes from what you do with the opportunities that window offers.
Choosing the right smartphone is only the start of improving your performance; it’s just as important to make sure you’re using it in the most effective way, and that’s what Smarter Everyday is all about.
Smarter Everyday is a new programme from Nokia, which will inspire you with cutting edge ideas about productivity, collaboration and technology adoption, from business leaders and innovators who bring a unique view on creativity, leadership and management, as well as stories from within Nokia.
We’ll be looking at four key themes. The first is ‘Designing your day’, in which we’ll look at how we work in an age where we can be always-on, where we choose when and how to access our work and our world, and how this enables us to achieve more than before.
The other themes will be:
Can your device make you smarter? Used badly, can it make you dumber? Whether it is social networks or disruptive technologies, debate rages as to whether the power of the web available everywhere, anytime is really good for the way we think and work.
Teams that flow
Teams need to establish a productive, supportive culture around using technology in order to get the most from it. Expectations of always-on communications and myths of 24/7 super-workers can be corrosive and harm productivity. So how do teams reach peak performance?
Much is made of organisational resilience and responses to the ‘new normal’, sometimes called VUCA – Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity.
According to new research by psychologists, being more flexible in our behavior can help us embrace change. This can enhance our ability as individuals, teams and organisations to adapt and succeed in an unpredictable world.
