More and more people are recognizing that the idea that humans can “multitask” is a myth. But even for those who’ve recognized this reality, there’s a problem — multitasking is still an expectation in many workplaces, and it’s become a habit in day-to-day life.

Join Debby Herman as she reviews the neuroscience that shows what’s really happening in our brains when we think we’re multitasking, and what the short-term and long-term effects are on our ability to focus. She’ll discuss how to shift the culture of multitasking that has taken hold in both workplaces and homes, in order to recover our ability to focus and interact with colleagues and loved ones in meaningful ways.
