  • manage and reduce conflict,
  • plan and solve problems collaboratively,

What participants say about Intentional Focus:

For the first time in a long time I feel excited about the future.”

“Before taking Intentional Focus, I was experiencing a lot of self-doubt and was allowing other people’s behaviour to negatively influence my own. I wanted to be more confident, clear-headed, and focused, not only in my work but also at home with family and friends. And now I am.

I am now working out every week, eating better, getting more sleep, approaching conflict directly with an open mind (and a few deep breaths), and doing my best to recharge away from the screen. I am focusing on what makes me feel good now and in the longer term.

I’ve taken on a new challenge as a result of the program and it is one of the best things I’ve ever done. I’m so amazed that something I thought I could never do, I’m actually doing!”

Intentional Focus gave me the confidence to take on new challenges. I applied for and was successful in obtaining a new role with my employer even before the end of the program. It gave me the confidence to take on more challenges both personally and professionally and a desire to continue to grow and develop my skills. I now continue to look for new opportunities for personal and professional growth.”

“Before Intentional Focus I was tired a lot and felt spread very thin from the constant barrage of priorities, issues, demands and to do lists. As a result of the program, I am developing and enhancing skills that leave me feeling at the top of my game, calm and in control. The influx of information and demands has not changed, however, my ability to manage it and to maintain, and even increase, my productivity has! I am going forward with a much better awareness of what I can do to maintain clear, intentional focus and achieve all my goals.”

Fully Leverage Your Skills and Talent

Time and energy management, productivity, communication, problem-solving, conflict management, and collaboration skills are more important in determining success and satisfaction among similarly trained colleagues than academic knowledge or technical skills. Without these crucial behavioural skills, we are unable to fully leverage our education, talent, and experience in a sustainable manner. It is amazing what happens when you do!

You will also be encouraged and supported during Intentional Focus to take on a challenge that will change your perspective of what you are capable of, and you will test behaviour which will lay the foundation for your continued success.

Approach

Research in education and brain-based learning theory indicates that experiential education is the most effective method for accelerating meaningful behavioural change and skill development. When we learn through experience, inquiry, critical thinking, and interaction, our insight is more likely to lead to perspective shifts that will change our behaviour in a meaningful and lasting manner.
