Mastering Mental Focus: Training for Today's Attention Economy
Learning Lab

Presenter: Rebecca Johnson

Presenter: Michelle Spehr


Track: Show Up as a Leader

About the Session

Stressors, smartphones, to-do lists, interruptions, and distractions tug at our mental and emotional energy all day long, leaving us feeling overwhelmed and “crazy busy” but still without the sense that we’ve attended to what’s most important. If we’re not able to sift through the stimuli, create clarity and stay present, we end up at the mercy of others’ agendas, our environment, and our own frazzled inner state. In today’s attention economy, the ability to harness and direct our own mental energy is our most important resource. This training is designed to help participants reclaim their mental energy and time so they can bring more presence and focus to the people and things that matter most.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify personal obstacles to generating more presence, focus, and attention in daily work life.

  2. Learn at least two practical strategies for building focused attention.

  3. Learn at least two practical strategies for modifying your external environment to support greater presence, focus and attention.
