Leader/Manager/Supervisor can increase focus to grow their people and drive business results. The ability to manage distraction is the most important characteristic of high performers. The problem: Employees are bombarded with internal and external distractions or interference (anything that prevents performance) that can take them off course, impacts productivity, and results. Sometimes Leaders/Managers create distractions that reduces or prevents optimal performance.

Learner Objectives
In this session, attendees will learn:

• Identify what’s at stake when employees lose focus and how focus impacts the success
• Describe the impact focus has on individual and organizational success
• Use a simple, repeatable coaching approach to help reduce interference and increase focus
