“A primary task of leaders is directing the attention of others to where it needs to go. To do so, leaders need to learn to put aside distraction and focus their own attention first” says Daniel Goleman in his latest book ‘Focus’


Managing Mindfully…

Being focused – the ability to set aside the attraction of distractions, see what matters most in a situation and give it your full attention – is why mindfulness matters. It’s a hugely beneficial practice leaders need to cope more calmly and constructively with the constant challenges we face - unrelenting busyness, pace, pressure, overload, stress and a deluge of distractions that keep us in a state of continuous divided attention  [more on Finding Focus]

Practical mindfulness is a way to develop a raft of must-have traits that can help leaders:

x      Lift their level of personal productivity

x      Stay calm, connected and emotionally balanced

x      Manage distractions and mind wandering

x      Dampen down anger and disruptive emotions

x      Make better decisions and take wiser action                                        

x      Think with more clarity and less cloudiness

x      Be more present, in-control and open-minded

x       Ease anxiety, curtail confusion, be less stress-prone

“I was getting easily distracted and loosing focus at work. This training was excellent to help me gain more clarity and presence in performing my-day-to-day role - I always like Bill’s style of training. I find I can relate to it easily.” Kelly H - Regional Manager
