CSU’s Got Talent Online Training: INDISTRACTABLE How to Control Your Attention and Choose Life

What could you accomplish if you knew how to improve concentration and overcome distractions? What if you had the power to stay focused and become “indistractable? ” Nir Eyal reveals the hidden psychology driving us to distraction. He describes why solving the problem is not as simple as swearing off our devices. In this session, based on his book, Indistractable, he reveals the key to getting the best out of technology, without letting it get the best of us. Inside, Eyal overturns conventional wisdom and describes: Why distraction at work is a symptom of a dysfunctional company culture – and how to fix it. What really drives human behavior, and why “time management is pain management”. Empowering and optimistic, Indistractable provides practical, novel techniques to control your time and attention – helping you live the life you really want.

This course will take place Wednesday, September 30 from 10:00 am – 11:00 am. All CSU Faculty & Staff are invited to attend this free webcast.

We recently updated the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) section of the CHRS Recruiting webpage. We encourage you to review this information prior to the July 8, 2020 go-live of the new recruiting system for faculty and staff.

One of the questions we get regularly is, “What does CHRS stand for?”

CHRS stands for Common Human Resources System. In the next few years, all functions currently managed in SJSU @ Work (PeopleSoft HR) will be merged into one consolidated systemwide HR database, CHRS. CHRS Recruiting is the first module of the consolidated system to be implemented.

If you have additional questions, please submit them via email to chrs@sjsu.edu.
