Melinda-Pic-250x250 This event is taking place on Tuesday November 25th at 7 p.m. at Metro Hall, 55 John Street, Room 304. Free if you are a member of our Endorsing Associations. For a list of endorsing associations. Otherwise, we charge $30. All profits go to the Make A Wish Foundation. Please note this event is being held at Metro Hall, Room 304. Metro Hall is located at 55 John Street in downtown TO. John Street runs north and south between King and Wellington, west of University Ave.

A primary task of leadership is to direct attention. Leaders tell us where to focus our energies. But leaders need, too, to manage their own attetnion. Leaders who do this effectively can soar, those who do not will stumble. The reason is simple. “Your Focus,” Yoda reminds us, “is your reality.”

– Daniel Goleman What is your most valuable resource – the key resource that allows you to be an effective leader, to succeed in business, and to enjoy life? Some would say time. Others would say energy, or your network of relationships. These are all undoubtedly important. Yet they all require that you have mastered the deployment of a fundamental mental resource: Your attention. As Daniel Goleman suggests in the quote above, the difference between soaring and stumbling lies in effective attention management. Your ability to direct and manage your attention is at the root of everything you achieve. It determines the quality of the decisions you make, the quality of your relationships, your level of performance and enjoyment. Your effectiveness as a leader depends crucially on how well you have mastered the art of focusing and directing your attention productively. As a leader, you need to know when and where to direct your attention, why, for how long, and how intensely. Quite simply, Mastering the art of directing our attention is the key to success in leadership, in business, and in life. And this is where we run into a challenge: Managing our attention is quite difficult. There is the distraction of being pulled in mulitiple directions by the many demands made on us. There is the problem of focusing appropriately in the midst of vast streams of information coming at us at high speed. There is the spiralling down effect when our attention gets caught by bad news. There is the challenge of knowing when to focus in and maybe risk missing important information – or when to focus wider and maybe risk getting lost in too much information and too much complexity. On the other hand, managing attention is crucial for success. And on the other hand, managing attention is a challenge. No wonder that attention management is always on the agenda when it comes to the topic of leadership. In this practical hands on session, Melinda will be sharing wth you some key insights and practical tools that allow you to embrace your attention management capabilities. Here is what you will learn:

  • Five Key Features of attention every “attention master” needs to know.
  • Why it matters that you get the balance right between attending to what goes wrong and what goes right.
  • Practical strategies and tools you can immediately implement to upgrade your attention management capabilities.

About Paul Tobey

A professional jazz pianist for 22 years, Paul’s recording contract disintegrated in the aftermath of 9/11. Faced with the impending reality of bankruptcy, he was left with little alternatives on how he was going to provide for his family.

Armed with a Canada Council grant, Paul travelled to Spain on an 850km pilgrimage to compose a symphonicsuite. Instead, what occurred was a complete self-auditof his life and the discovery of a way to re-purpose his music to stop struggling and create some real cash flow.

In 2005 he took on the world of internet marketing and started selling online sheet music, downloadable music, piano lessons and even a self-help tinnitus program. Soon, businesses were requesting Paul to share his proven methods and marketing intelligence which, propelled him to become Canada’s top internet marketing speaker and trainer, with over 100 engagements a year.

Paul Tobey is currently CEO of Training Business Pros and has personally trained thousands of businesses helping small business owners and entrepreneurs make millions of dollars.
