Can I Have Your Attention? Focus Your Team and Get Stuff Done in the Distracted Workplace
Category: General, Attention Management, Team Productivity

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 even 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 within 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.
