Sophie Chiche, CEO of becurrent joins eHealth Radio and the Health and Personal Development Channels. Her company has developed a system that not only allows people to be more productive, but helps them decide the most important areas to which they should devote their time. She calls it “productivity with a purpose.”
Listen to host Eric Dye & guests Sophie Chiche discuss the following:
Being overwhelmed with tasks, whether work-related or personal, can take a toll on your health. What are some of the issues that can arise from an overloaded schedule?
Your becurrent system helps people achieve “productivity with a purpose.” How can that improve a person’s physical and mental well-being?
It isn’t just health per se that’s affected. Workplace stress also has been shown to lead to an increased risk of engaging in unhealthy behaviors, such as cigarette smoking, alcohol and drug abuse, and poor dietary patterns, is that correct?
One of the concepts of your becurrent system is learning how to say “no.” Although it’s a little word – and may take a little courage to use - tell us how it can improve people’s mental health and overall outlook in the long run.
While we used to admire people who could multitask, it’s a concept that is losing momentum. Focusing on too many things means you’re really focusing on nothing. How does feed into the cycle of damaging people’s mental and physical health?
An August 2017 study carried out by the University of California Riverside found that companies offering employee wellness programs saw a significant gain in productivity among workers. In fact, it was found that all employees who participated improved productivity an average of one full workday per month. You work with corporations quite a bit – if you look at your program as a form of “productivity wellness,” do you feel that becurrent can have similar results in terms of overall productivity and wellness?
TIP: It’s no mystery that people, in both the professional or personal settings, who aren’t as productive as they can be – or are overwhelmed by the volume of tasks on their plate – can suffer a range of maladies, both physical and mental. It can also lead to a number of destructive behaviors, as well as lowering a company’s overall productivity – and the bottom line. In the becurrent system, people are taught to prioritize tasks, to separate what needs to be done from what can wait, and to ditch projects or tasks that simply don’t need to be done at all. In doing so, people can focus more time on the things that matter, which – in both a professional and personal setting – creates happier and more productive people and employees.
