Professional Development
Around 11 p.m. one night, you realize there’s a key step your team needs to take on a current project. So, you dash off an email to the team members while you’re thinking about it. No time like the present, right?

Wrong. As a productivity trainer specializing in attention management, I’ve seen over the past decade how after-hours emails speed up corporate cultures — and that, in turn, chips away at creativity, innovation, and true productivity.
We all know that developing good habits is essential for professional growth. Good habits are essential for personal branding, too. Publishers are peddling lots of advice about establishing productive habits, but only a handful of authors offer realistic approaches. I reached out to one of the best – my friend and colleague Gretchen Rubin – and asked her to share some of her wisdom from her latest book, Better Than Before.
Our bodies have a language of their own, and their words aren’t always kind. Your body language has likely become an integral part of who you are, to the point where you might not even think about it. If that’s the case, it’s time to start, because you could be sabotaging your career.
