Take Five #31 // The myth of multitasking w/ Mala Hemnani
Time & Location
About the Event
About the Session:
Do you find yourself increasingly unable to focus on only one thing for a long period of time? Do your fingers itch to check your phone in the middle of a movie or conversation with someone? With the increasing number of distractions around us, we’ve lost the ability to focus on one single thing. Single-tasking, a conscious awareness of our tasks, allows us to ignore the irrelevant, conserve energy and create a way of thinking that supports creativity, possibilities, and solutions.
Although there is a healthy need for both multi and single tasking, we’ll explore how we can incorporate an impactful dose of single tasking into both at work and personal lives.
About the Speaker:
Having lived in the Middle East, West Africa, and Europe, Mala Hemnani moved to India 12 years ago where she started a fashion business. Her passion, however, has always been in coaching of assertive skills and professional etiquette, and is the Co-Founder of Markss Impressions, an image and soft skills consultancy.
Vast exposure to different cultures and behaviours, have given Mala the experiences that have invoked the curiosity to explore trends where one can further display their innate creativity and potential. Single-tasking has organically and holistically become the ‘natural’ go-to skill, and after research, exploring and testing, Mala herself is convinced by the strength of this art.
