    Managing digital distraction may be the most important work-life balance/productivity skill that we aren’t talking about. Digital distraction undermines work performance, and even stresses intimate and family relationships. This session will include a discussion of digital distraction and its effects on performance and personal lives, and offer several concrete tips for managing digital distraction.
