"Daily, people spend over three hours on their phones. While ever-smarter digital devices have made many aspects of our lives more efficient, a growing body of evidence suggests that, by continuously distracting us, they are harming our ability to concentrate. Studies across the world show that students constantly use their phones when they are in class. A strong body of evidence suggests that media use during lectures is associated with lower academic performance."

What Google Learned From Its Quest to Build the Perfect Team - The New York Times
A 2088 study by "a group of psychologists from Carnegie Mellon, M.I.T and Union College found two behaviors that good teams generally shared.

"First, on the good teams, members spoke in roughly the same proporstion, a phenomenon the researchers referred to as 'equality in distribution of conversational turn-taking.' Once some teams, everyone spoke during each task; on other, leadership shifted among teammates from assignment to assignment. But in cach case, by the end of the day, everyone had roughly spoken the same amount. 'As long as everyone got a chance to talk, the team did well," {Anita] Woolley [the study's lead author] said.

"Second, the good teams all had high 'average social sensitivity' -- a fance way of saying that they were skilled at inuiting how others felt based on their one of voice, their expressions and other nonverbal cues. ...

"Within psychology, researchers sometimes colloquially refer to traits like 'conventional turn-taking' and 'average social sensitivity' as aspects of what's know as psychology safey -- a group culture that the Harvard Business School professor Amy Edmondson defines as 'shared belief held by members of a team that the team is safe for interpersonal risk-taking.' Psychological safety is a 'sense of condifence that the team will not embarrass, reject or punish someone for speaking up," Edmondson wrote in a study published in 1999. ...

"Google's data [on team performance] indicated that psychological safety, more than anything else, was critical to making teams work." So, how do you help people create psychologically safe environments? That's what Google researchers wanted to know. ...

"'Just having the data that provides to people that these things are worth paying attention to sometimes is the most important step in getting to actually pay attention ...Don't underestimate the power of giving people a common platform and operating language,' said Google researcher Julia Rozovsky.

... when companies try to optimize everything, it's sometimes easy to forget that sucess is often built on experiences -- like emotional interactions and complicated coversations and discussions of who we want to be and how our teammates make us fell -- that can't really be optimized."
