Building a Focused and Productive Team in Turbulent Times +

Leaders at every level are navigating a staggering amount of change with an unrelenting flow of information to process daily. Your attention, which Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella calls today’s scarcest resource, simply can’t be wasted.

How do you make decisions about what deserves attention? How does your team know where to focus?

In “Building a Focused and Productive Team in Turbulent Times,” attention expert Curt Steinhorst introduces leaders to the critical lens of focus and attention by helping you understand the science of how the brain works as well as the practical wisdom and essential tools required to build mastery level teams.

In this one-hour session, Curt will equip leaders to:

  • Eliminate the hidden and costly distractions that destroy productivity
  • Clearly communicate what your team needs to know now
  • Conduct more effective virtual meetings
  • Build a team alliance that prioritizes the important work
  • Create a space to think and unlock innovation

A must-hear talk for these times, Curt shares insights garnered from years of advising some of the world’s top leaders, CEOs, athletes, and entrepreneurs on how to create focused and successful teams. Every leader will leave the session equipped to build resilient teams and to respond to rapid change with the speed and efficiency that only comes from focused attention. --

Can I Have Your Attention? Focus Your Team and Get Stuff Done In the Distracted Workplace +

For the first time in history, we live in a world without any barriers to connection or communication.  This has fundamentally altered the way people work, engage, communicate, and relate to one another.  The same technology that simplifies processes compromises our focus and makes it ever more difficult to reach increasingly distracted customers.  Attention resources have never been more competed over, or more depleted.   We are asked to process four times the information that Americans dealt with in 1986, but with less space and time to actually think. Advertisements, alerts, emails, constant notifications—no wonder the average American struggles to make it three minutes without being interrupted!

In this intensely practical and informative speech, Curt Steinhorst discusses the great challenges we face in a constantly-connected world.  He pulls back the curtain to reveal: How did we get here?  How deep does this distraction issue go?  And where do we go from here?

Curt’s speeches provide customized solutions for the distinct challenges facing each unique audience. --

Can I Have Your Attention? Reach the Distracted Customer +

Today’s buyer is harder to reach than ever, and even harder to keep. Their attention drives their decision-making, and that attention is ever more divided.  To effectively reach them, marketers must radically alter their strategies. Your customer’s brain been rewired.  What does that mean for your sales techniques?

In this market-focused speech, Curt Steinhorst answers: What counterintuitive communication methods can you use to surprise and delight clients who have had everything thrown at them? What shifts in behavior and expectations must you conform to before you have any chance of reaching them?  How can you leverage your customer’s distracted state to communicate more effectively with them? --

What Clients are Saying

We want to take a moment to thank you for your help with our COVID-19-inspired work-at-home webinar. The first one went so well that we can’t wait for the follow-up in a few weeks.

We were very impressed with the amount of custom-tailoring you put into the program as well as your willingness to be flexible to incorporate our needs. More than that, our participants felt inspired and energized by you personally. They took away many actionable insights and attitudes that are particularly useful while we are all isolating and juggling responsibilities for our homes, our families, and particularly educating and managing (or trying to manage) our children.

With your webinar oriented specifically for this coronavirus chapter in our history, and the extraordinary changes, challenges, doubts, shifts, and responsibilities that our people face because of it, your message resonated with our culture. Fortifying our focus, managing our attention, and deflecting distraction, could not be more timely or necessary subjects to realize as we address a reshaped future.

The participation was at all-time high, the message was inclusive, and feedback we gathered after the webinar was positive.
