Attention PaysHOW 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. Join speaker, author, and sassy little Aussie, Neen James, and discover what makes attention valuable and why paying attention in very specific ways drives profitability, productivity and accountability.
Folding TimeHOW TO FOCUS YOUR TIME, ENERGY AND ATTENTION TO MAKE AN IMPACT
What if we’ve been thinking about productivity all wrong? As leaders we are constantly being asked to do more with less. So we focus on being more ‘productive‘ and trying to get twice as much done in half the time. But no matter how productive we get, our calendars are triple-booked and our 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. To do that, we need to not only manage our time, but focus our attention, and leverage our energy.
Idea ShapingUSE CONTEXTUAL MODELS TO BRING YOUR IDEAS TO LIFE AND MAKE THEM SPREAD
Stephen Covey’s four quadrants. The Food Pyramid. Simon Sinek’s Golden Circle. These ideas spread and impacted millions of people. Your ideas are powerful and they deserves to spread. But before they can spread, people need to understand them. And one of the most powerful tools to help people understand your ideas is a contextual model. For years, Neen James has been helping speakers, leaders and visionaries translate their ideas into powerful, spreadable, repeatable contextual models. Today, she’s here today to help you do just that.
