Intentional Focus

During Intentional Focus you will learn and develop essential skills and behaviours which will increase your focus, energy, productivity, confidence, happiness, ability to handle stress, and ability to collaborate, communicate and manage conflict.

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.

During Intentional Focus you will learn and develop these essential skills and behaviours. You will increase your physical energy, emotional happiness, mental focus and sense of meaning and purpose in your life. And you will have fun doing it.

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.

Impact – You will leave this program filled with a new sense of possibility and the ability to make it happen… 

What participants say about Intentional Focus:

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

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.”

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.
