Do you feel overworked? Stressed out? Burnt out? Not as productive as you could be? You're not alone. Statistics suggest that work is interfering more and more with people's personal time, and that stress and burnout are at near-epidemic levels. The cost to organizations and governments is in the billions, and the cost to workers comes not only in the form of lower job effectiveness, but often in their mental and physical well-being. Job demands, technology, and organizational norms and culture tie people to their work in a manner that is unprecedented in modern times, but the question is: Are we really working as smart as we can? In spite of recent advances in some countries (e.g., Sweden and France) the answer seems to be no.
In this talk, Prof. Trougakos will share ways in which you can work smarter, be more productive, and live a healthier life, while actually working less. 


Prof. Trougakos's presentation is part of an ongoing series of compelling lectures for alumni, hosted at venues across the GTA. U of T in Your Neighbourhood brings the University right into your community. Stay informed, inspired and connected, because together we are boundless.
