In today’s overwired world, we are expected to be always on and always connected, but this approach has consequences. Workplace engagement is at an all-time low and complaints about work-life balance are at an all-time high. Now, there’s a solution—flow.
When we are in flow, we are up to five times more productive and up to seven times more creative.
The world needs flow now more than ever before. Flow allows us to organize our lives around practices of intrinsic value: habits and ways of being that we have decided are important, fulfilling, and have the capacity to change the world for good. This is the belief, premise, and promise of my new book.
When we are in flow, we are in the zone. When we are in flow, we are more creative and more productive. But flow isn’t just about unlocking engagement and impact in the workplace. Flow is about our ability to take care of our bodies, wellness, and work-life balance.
Create More Flow introduces the concept of flow, offers compelling evidence for its impact, and provides actionable strategies to start experiencing more flow more often. It’s a must-read book for anyone who craves more joy in their work and life.
Synopsis: In today’s overwired, social media dominated world, we are expected to be always on and always connected, but trying to always be connected has some dire and unintended consequences and side effects.. For example, workplace engagement is at an all-time low and complaints about work-life balance are at an all-time high. In the quest to optimize while restoring balance, more people than ever before are now ’embracing flow’. When we are in flow, we are in the zone. When we are in flow, we are more creative and more productive. But flow isn’t just about unlocking engagement and impact in the workplace. Flow rests on our ability to take care of our bodies, wellness, and work-life balance. In the pages of “Create More Flow: Igniting Peak Performance in an Overwired World”, speaker, author and renowned leadership coach Camille Preston introduces the concept of flow, offers compelling evidence for its impact, and provides actionable strategies to start experiencing more flow more often. Critique: Informative, iconoclastic, thoughtful and thought-provoking, “Create More Flow” will prove to be a truly life-enhancing and inspiring read that is unreservedly recommended for both community and academic library Self-Help/Self-Improvement collections. It should be noted for the personal reading lists of anyone trying to make a more effective and less stressful adaptation to our modern world that “Create More Flow” is also available in a digital book format (Kindle, $7.99).– Helen’s Bookshelf, Midwest Book Review
