Leadership Focus:
Dealing with Workplace Distractions
In an era of unrelenting distractions, demands and pressures, leaders now more than ever need to learn to sharpen focus in order to thrive in the complex world. Recent research suggests that as leaders move into more senior positions, their attention and social skills suffer. The hectic pace of leading appears to be contributing to greater stress, poorer focus and reduced productiveness. This course utilizes cutting-edge research to reveal how the ability to focus distinguishes “stars” from average performers.

Optimizing Change
We don’t actually manage change per se. At best, we manage to manage ourselves and a few of the variables that swirl around us. We can, however, facilitate change. That is, influence its speed, direction
and impact by our thoughtful actions,
and optimize opportunities that arise. Specifically for leaders in organizations to lead through change, this course will provide a few core models and practical skills in working effectively in the midst of ongoing, accelerating flux and change.
