Reclaiming Your Day: How Successful People Manage Collaborative Overload

The collaborative intensity of work has exploded over the past decade. Collaborative time demands have risen by more than 50 percent over the past decade, and most knowledge workers or leaders now spend 85 percent or more of their work time on email, in meetings and on the phone. To help address this critical issue, Rob's team conducted both quantitative and qualitative research over the past several years looking into collaborative overload.

Download this article, kindly shared with CRF by Rob Cross, to find out how top executive can reclaime 18 - 24% of their time spent on collaborative tasks.

With the use of jazz as an analogy, Alex demonstrated the collaborative process that can be drawn from jazz musicians: the improvisational mindset, responsiveness to change and disruption, accepting new and novel ideas, managing ambiguity and finding confidence in uncertainty.
