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 ever more difficult to reach increasingly distracted attendees. Attention resources have never been more competed over, or more depleted. We are asked to process four times the information that people dealt with in 1986, but with less space and time to actually think. Advertisements, alerts, emails, constant notifications—no wonder the average person struggles to make it three minutes without being interrupted!
In this intensely practical speech, Curt Steinhorst shares communication insights that help you rise above the noise and focus strategies that help you block it out. He addresses questions such as:
- How do you create environments and processes that actually bolster your capacity for focus rather than harm it?
- How do you balance between staying informed on trends though connectivity and seeking to create the trends through focused ingenuity?
- How do you engage with emerging technology without letting it exploit you?
- What communication strategies will help you reach a customer in constant distraction?
