ATD GOLDEN GATE CHAPTER EVENT: Managing Your Attention in a World of Distraction

Cost: ranges from free to $20, depending upon ATD membership status.

Please see more details and register (required) on the ATD (Association for Talent Development) Golden Gate chapter website BY 5pm PT FEBRUARY 2 using the URL/link below. The Zoom link will be emailed to you by the morning of the event. (RSVPing here on Meetup is NOT sufficient for registration).


Do you find it is often difficult to pay attention in the way you would like to? Would you like to improve your ability to manage your attention? Would you like to be more “present” in the moment? Would it be helpful to find ways to help others in your organization better manage their attention?

Take a fresh look at managing your attention, a superpower that can be cultivated.

- Learn a new “geography” or “landscape” of your attention. (Many participants will forever experience their attention in an entirely new way.)
- See how to come to the present moment “on demand.”
- Receive a summary handout with key learning points and recommended practices to apply the lessons learned in your life and ongoing personal and professional development.
- Ideas and best practices from the group on helping employees manage their attention.
