The key to being more productive isn't working harder. It's working smarter. And Huawei's all-new Mate 9 smartphone puts an entire boardroom in your back pocket
Some of the most accomplished CEOs in business aren't superhuman. They have just mastered a few tricks of the trade that lets them get a lot accomplished in a little time. While some are easy to figure out – like keeping your desk organized and sleeping eight hours a night – others require a little help. A personal assistant will certainly help you get more done, but you can't exactly walk around with one of those inside your back pocket. Instead, why not let Huawei - and its productivity-packing Mate 9 smartphone – take you and your business to the next level.
Work smart, not hard
The busier your work life becomes, the more crucial it is to have your agenda with you at all times. While keeping a to-do list on hand seems like common sense, writing a list of tasks you need to perform is actually more like taking notes – you need to filter external information, summarize it in your head, and then write it down. In fact, many studies show that taking notes allows you to distil information more proficiently.
This means that simply writing down a to-do list forces you to think about how best to perform that tasks, making you more productive overall. The Huawei Mate 9 makes this chore simple, thanks to its ground-breaking user experience. The EMUI 5.0 interface has been optimised for simplicity, giving you access to your to-do list (or the ability to take notes) in just three steps. It packs handy shortcuts too, which help you enable Wi-Fi, find apps and block pesky notifications faster and easier.
Bring out the best in others
As a leader, the most important part of your job isn't the results you strive for. Your job is to inspire your employees, and bring out the best in them. A study done by DDI and Harris Interactive found that 98 percent of employees who have good leaders are motivated to do their best. And the simplest way to do that is to lead by example.
Documenting your day is the quickest way to provoke action and connect with you employees, and the Mate 9 makes that as easy as taking a picture. Instead of telling staff what to do – show them. Not only does the Mate 9 pack a second-generation Leica Dual Camera (which provides unprecedented detail for images) but provides the perfect canvas to show them off - the large 5.9-inch screen is compact but pixel-perfect.
Stay connected at all times
It doesn't matter if you're overseas or waiting for your next meeting to begin, knowing what's happening back at the office is the first step to making informed decisions. Usually, that means packing your briefcase with a smartphone, laptop and tablet. Fortunately, the Huawei Mate 9 makes hauling around multiple gadgets a thing of the past.
With fantastic network support and integrated dual-sim (which is especially handy when on a business trip), the Mate 9 provides a stable internet connection wherever you are on the globe. It also has revolutionary battery life (with its large 400mAh battery) which – along with smart power-saving technology – means you get two-days usage out of the Mate 9 on a single charge.
