Session Topic:

Recruiter Attention Deficit Disorder

Session Description:

In the manufacturing economy, time was the currency. Systems were designed for maximum efficiency and effectiveness was simply measured by how much time could be dedicated to the process. The assembly line was the perfect example of this. In today’s information environment, knowledge is critical and attention is the currency. Directing our attention in the right places and for the right amount of time is the key to effectiveness.

The checklist below allows for a quick self assessment:

· You are frequently distracted from your current activity by others or your own lack of focus

· You finish your day surprised by how little you actually accomplished despite the fact that you felt busy all day (i.e. You were on the phone “all day” but the phone report shows that you barely cracked two hours!)

· You have a to do list of important items but always seem to be distracted by more “urgent” activities

· You find it difficult to focus fully on another person without thinking of other matters

· You constantly check and respond to email, text messages, instant messages, etc.

· People get frustrated with you (verbally or nonverbally) because you answer your phone or return text messages in the middle of meetings or conversations

· You think you are a great multi-tasker

· You are addicted to emergencies and pride yourself on being the best “fire fighter”

· You love the feeling of being “in the “zone” / “in the moment” / “in the now” and the feeling of being effective and efficient during those times but are frustrated by how infrequently you are there

If you checked a majority of the boxes (or were distracted in the process) then you may be suffering from R.A.D.D. The good news is that it is curable and this session is in part the prescription. In this information packed session Jeff will share 10 best practices that when implemented will significantly increase your efficiency and effectiveness. This session is a must attend for anyone who wants to achieve peak performance on a consistent basis
