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. Celebrated author and speaker Neen James 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.

Register now to discover what makes attention valuable and why paying attentionin very specific ways drives productivity and profitability.

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

Recorded February 8, 2018

Accountability is more than just reprimanding poor performance. If leveraged fully, it can be used as a powerful motivator and benchmarking tool for growth. This holds equally true for direct reports as well as your own development. How would you rate your responsibility to and for others on your team? Join in this conversation to reflect on your level of accountability and develop this skill to create a work environment built on encouragement rather than punishment.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Gain self-awareness of the levels of accountability at work and in life;
  • Understand how to change accountability conversations – both internally and externally;
  • Explore accountability as a leadership tool in managing others.

Building Adaptive Capacity: A Living Systems Approach to Change

Traditional approaches to change are driven by a desire to predict and control with machine-like efficiency. But our world is increasingly complex and calls leaders to think differently about ourselves, each other and the world around us. Workplaces are multigenerational, industries are consolidating, and new technologies force leaders to rethink the nature of business itself.

What if we looked to the genius of living systems for their strategies to thrive in ever-evolving, interconnected environments?

As leaders in our own human ecosystems, we can learn and apply lessons from Nature. A living systems framework can turn any organizational member into someone who uses inspiration from nature to transform teams and tackle their most challenging initiatives.

Welcome to the flourishing evolution!

Executive Level Distance Learning Series

Mindful Teambuilding

Trust is a foundational principle for successful teams. When team members have mutual appreciation and recognition of each other’s contributions, they set aside their personal interests for the sake of the greater good. Honest, compassionate and mindful communication from a leader who provides constructive feedback balanced with appreciation creates an atmosphere where team members empathize with each other and build strong bonds.

In this webinar, presenter Pandit Dasa, mindful leadership expert and former monk, addressed the importance of creating an environment where ego battles aren’t responsible for stifling the team’s progress. This approach encourages individuals to appreciate the contributions of their co-workers instead of feeling threatened by them.

During this one-hour webinar, participants came to understand the scientific research on mindfulness and how it can improve and enhance workplace cooperation. The session closed with a guided mindfulness practice that participants can take back to their teams to reduce stress, improve productivity and boost emotional intelligence.

Drop the Ball: Achieving More by Doing Less

Once the poster girl for doing it all, Tiffany Dufu, a renowned voice in the women’s leadership movement, struggled to accomplish everything she thought she needed to in order to succeed.

Like so many driven and talented women who have been brought up to believe that to have it all, they must do it all, Tiffany began to feel that achieving her career and personal goals was an impossibility. Eventually, she discovered the solution: letting go.

In Drop the Ball, Tiffany recounts how she learned to reevaluate expectations, shrink her to-do list, and meaningfully engage the assistance of others—freeing the space she needed to flourish at work and to develop deeper, more meaningful relationships at home.

Join us for this one-hour informative and inspirational webinar. Tiffany will help you understand how you too can embrace imperfection and expect less of yourself (and more from others), enabling you to devote the necessary energy to achieving your real goals.
