Better Business Brain

Actively focus your business brain for best performance in your accountancy firm

Multi-tasking…

If you ask most members of your team, they will say they multi-task regularly – they want to sound productive, efficient and effective in their role.

This is your brain telling you that you cannot deal with these 2 competing forces – if you leave the radio on, your brain will not be at full capacity to deal with parking your car.

It’s the same at work – when you focus on 2 important jobs at the same time you will not achieve the high level of accuracy expected…
