Improve Your Attention – Work Smarter


Do you find that whilst you have the best intentions of getting through that mountain of paperwork, or backlog of emails, you’re staring into space much of the day?
Would you like to learn how to channel your energy and complete tasks, listen to co-workers, and stay awake in meetings?
In this course, you’ll learn ways of improving your attention, activating to work, coping with mood interference, and managing your working memory. You’ll be introduced to techniques that will help you gradually build up your attention capacity, and reduce distractibility, which will enable you to achieve the previously unachievable. With our expertise and your efforts, you’ll be able to make best use of those four times in a day when your attention is at its peak. In addition, you’ll learn how to focus your attention the rest of the time and be successful at work.
