Attention Pays: How to Drive Profitability, Productivity and Accountability

To get the results you want, you need to get attention. But most people don’t know how to get it and keep it.

People often see attention as a transaction, something to trade, but it’s much more than that.

Neen has identified that people pay attention at three different levels; personal, professional, and global, and she’s designed a powerful methodology that makes it easy to leverage all three.

Neen’s “Intentional Attention Model” helps individuals and organizations be more deliberate about the choices we make and the actions we take.

You’ll learn:

  • Why we get attention wrong (and how to get it right)
  • The three types of attention, Personal, Professional and Global and how to master each
  • Strategies to design work and personal environments for optimal attention and focus
  • How to turn your technology and devices from frustrating distractions to powerful levers
  • A simple framework to get your team aligned, focused and executing faster than ever

Folding Time: How to Focus Your Time, Energy and Attention to Make an Impact

What if we’ve been thinking about productivity all wrong?

Leaders are constantly being asked to do more with less. So they focus on being more “productive” and trying to get twice as much done in half the time. But no matter how productive they get, their calendars are triple-booked and their inboxes are overflowing.

The goal isn’t to get the most work done. It’s to get the most important work done, efficiently, and effectively.

In this program you will learn:

  • How to choose your most strategic time window based on your personal productivity style
  • How to identify and eliminate distractions and “attention killers”
  • How The 15-Minute Rule can help you increase your sense of control and move all your  projects forward
  • How to “make time in time” and turn unproductive windows into magical moments
