The e-learning course materials are intended for use by people that want to make e-learning an additional part of their learning and development offering.
The e-learning is very flexible and can be added to an organisation’s intranet or learning management system, ready to be used by their employees. The benefits are huge, and you only ever pay once for the package making it extremely cost effective.
One of the biggest and perhaps saddest trends in our era is that attention spans are shrinking. It is primarily fuelled by the explosion of online content, rise of social media and the ever-increasing range of things to obtain and experience. It is great to be living is such a rich world, the like of which we have never had in the entire history of mankind. However, there is a price to pay for anything good and in this case, it seems to be our shrinking attention spans, increased stress and the feeling that there is so much to do in so little time.
At only 60 minutes long (e-course version – 1 day for a workshop), the Attention to Detail Online Course is a comprehensive and easily digestible overview of attention to detail and how to improve it whether you are in finance, accounting, sales, operations, marketing, or technical fields. Course videos can be viewed on any computer, tablet, or phone.
Who The Course is For
Anyone who wants to increase accuracy, make fewer mistakes, increase productivity, and generally be better at what they do.
- Employees/Individuals: If you want to improve your own attention to detail for improved work performance, this is an excellent course.
- Managers/Supervisors: If you are a manager who wants to help an otherwise strong employee improve his or her attention to detail, this is an excellent course for him or her.
- Leaders/Executives: If you are a company leader who wants to develop a more detail-oriented workforce and culture, this is a great course for you.
Why Attention Management Is Crucial
Scrolling through social media, fast browsing, rapid link following and article scanning rather than reading seems to be destroying our attention spans.
To be able to enjoy our world to the fullest, we need to address this unfortunate trend. If unchecked it can lead to serious psychological issues such as depression, burnout and reduced self-esteem. The media has numerous stories of people who have become social media addicts with serious psychological consequences. On top of that, the current geo-political trends also indicate that our collective attentions are getting hijacked for the benefit of others—usually politicians or the very rich. From Facebook filter bubbles to the ever-increasing invasion of personalised ads, everywhere you go your attention is under threat. We need to fight back, not by technology because that’s usually controlled by someone else, but by psychology which is mainly under your control.
The way things are going, attention economy and attention management will be key fields and every individual must learn how to manage their attention. It is an important resource just like your other important resources such as money and time. Just as you are likely to care about protecting your money, you must also take steps to protect your attention or will be at the risk of it being hijacked by others.
The exercises included here are intentionally designed to be simple and easy to follow. They are mental exercises and should be treated much like stretch exercises or yoga moves. In principle, they are simple; though in practice, they can be quite effective.
Think of these exercises as mental exercises that will strengthen your ability to control your attention. It is like going to gym or doing yoga to become stronger or more flexible. Once you are fit and go to play your favourite sport such as tennis, you will be better equipped to handle the needs of the game. The same applies to attention management. The better you are at concentrating and self-discipline, the better you will be in navigating the physical and digital world with your attention under your control.
You can also consider using these exercises in the context of a training course on attention management. You can explain the exercises to your delegates and ask them to perform the easier ones. The most important consideration is to minimise external interruptions or noise that can disrupt any thought process. For best results, make sure the delegates form a circle of chairs and sit on these chairs looking outwards as to minimise distractions caused by looking at each other.
