Title: Maximizing Work Productivity with Self-Care Science: An OBM Guide for Professionals to Make the Most of Their Day
How many times have you sat in your chair at work and thought, “I have no idea how I am going to get all of this done.” Or, “I have taken on more than I can handle”. I am sure that for most people the answer to both of those questions is “Yes.”. Unfortunately, life presents all of us with a series of difficult challenges throughout the workday that can make or break how our day turns out, and more importantly how much we get done. Moreover, it sometimes feels like our work has completely consumed our lives as we can never figure out how to get ahead, or at least not be behind. That’s the bad news, the good news? You can do something about it. You can change the way you view each day, how you use your time and interact with others, and ultimately how you create solutions to dealing with setbacks that will boost your energy and get you excited about the next day. This talk will discuss self-management tips, tricks, and strategies using organizational behavior management (OBM) to help you design your environment in a way that will improve how you deal with those challenges on a day-to-day basis and eventually improve your behavior so that you can make the most of your day.

- Pinpoint single-tasking and multi-tasking performances and the contingencies that shape and maintain them
- Pinpoint procrastination behavior and the contingencies that shape and maintain it
- Pinpoint work-overload performance and the contingencies that shape and maintain it
- Identify and explain OBM strategies that effectively manage tasks during the work day
- Identify and explain OBM strategies that increase productivity and reduce procrastination during the day
- Identify and explain OBM strategies that prevent and reduce work-overload during the day
