Attention and Focus – skills on maximising course


In this day and age of multiple distractions, the average person can have between 50,000 and 70,000 thoughts in a 24 hours day – whether awake or asleep. And in the age of multiple distractions and devices, it’s no wonder that attention and focus are at constant risk of depletion – it could be argued we are all facing some degree of ADHD. It can affect your work, your relationships and progress. Our course will give valuable insight, tools and strategies to help you be more attentive, vigiliant and focused in your daily life to achieve the goals you want.

In all our business courses, you get access to around six hours of e-learning that you can watch, listen and read. There are usually 100 questions and at the end of the course you will receive a certificate of completion that you can use against any personal or professional development requirements. As well as the course, you also receive a FREE e-book that you can read on your Kindle or other e-reader. You also get a FREE audiobook of the course so you can listen to the whole course uninterrupted on your device.
