Attention training

Support your people: train their minds to focus on the right priorities

The case for attention training: in this world of information overload and short term targets, our ability to be fully present is under siege. Millennials especially have grown up with non-stop distractions by multi-media, without learning how to cope.

Recent neuroscience research shows how non-stop distraction shapes the brain, leading to a form of ADHD called Attention Deficit Trait. Symptoms are: a scattered, stressed mind; feeling ‘always on alert’; restlessness; shallow emotions and making impulsive choices.

Sufferers seek relief in multitasking or changing jobs, but remain unable to focus, prioritize or connect to purpose. 

The answer: not time management but attention management.

Attention training builds mental muscle to resist being pulled in all directions and stay fully present. Support your (young) people to train their mind to focus on the right priorities and act from presence and purpose.

Attention Training Program

Overview

Learn to act from presence & purpose – Attention Training

Attention Training Program - Modular - employees (6x 3 hours)

Goal of the training:

Build attention muscle to successfully work from presence and focus on purpose.

Why:

Our minds are wired to follow distractions and react from habit, especially under pressure. Our digital, ‘always on’, profit driven world has the daily power to pull our attention into distractions, targets and short term gains. Making it hard to keep mind and heart-space for what matters most.

Strong attention skills are fundamental for all of your employees if you want them to navigate the current VUCA world with presence and focus on purpose. A strong stable attention can – and needs to be – trained!
