BECAUSE TIME IS NO LONGER OUR MOST VALUABLE RESOURCE; ATTENTION IS!

 

THE BUSINESS PSYCHOLOGIST

WHAT:

Changing culture at scale, developing leaders and managers, building teams.

HOW:

Apply the latest research, with creative design and world-class facilitation. A big focus on attention, energy, and behaviour.

WHY:

Attention matters because in today’s economy,

• Success is a team sport whose currency is insights and ideas
• It’s about energy, because momentum is everything
• It’s about shifting habits, because learning without behaviour change is pointless

ATTENTION: VIDEO

Here’s a video Tony did for Oprah Winfrey’s Super Soul Sunday on attention and busyness. It explains that the opposite of busy isn’t relaxation, it’s focused attention. It also explains the psychological reasons we are so busy.

‘Busy’ is an international best-seller, translated into 13 languages and sold around the world.  It was chosen as one of the top 3 business books of 2016, globally.
