When I see a red flag, I feel like working one week more every week! (Straight Talk [Soulaima Gourani’s own newsletter], July 2011)
Despite my natural political stance as a businesswoman, I would agree that all of us should work one hour more per week—at least. However, opposition parties have forgotten to tell the voters that we don’t need to spend more time in the office—we just need to work more while we are there. A day in the office is oftentimes a long series of interruptions. Phones are ringing, e-mails are ticking in, questions from colleagues are being thrown, counter orders from bosses are coming, meetings are being held, etc. We don’t have real work days but rather work moments. Here we run into a paradox. Across political parties and business communities, most people agree that we must live by innovation and development in the future. However, all studies show that creative work requires a period of undisturbed concentration. Thus, it isn’t possible to just be creative for fifteen minutes in between a meeting and a deadline. In every respect, it is necessary to have peace and quiet to do a good job. So how do we increase productivity without increasing our work hours? Listen to my contribution to the debate here!
