Attention Management Craven College

Attention Management Craven College - 364

This course is designed for any managers or members of staff who want to work more effectively. Attention management increases the ability to focus attention and can be at individual and organisational level. Managers are encouraged to deal with their own attention problems before trying to influence employees in their organisation.

Attention management is not time management, rather a skill that encourages us to focus on our work, enabling us to reach our personal and company goals. A distracted workforce is less than effective. When we don’t pay attention to our work we can waste valuable time and make careless mistakes.

Attention management allows managers and employees to increase their productivity and efficiency as well as their personal job satisfaction.This course covers:

  • Defining attention management
  • Difference between time management and attention management
  • How attention management could change how you work and your effectiveness.
  • The different types of attention, what they are and how they affect us
  • Importance of assessing where we focus most of our attention
  • How to identify which attention zone you spend most of your time in
  • How to set meaningful realistic (SMART) goals, creating strategies to achieve objectives
  • Tips for structuring their day to maximise time and increase your attention
  • How to identify attention stealers and how to take control of distractions
  • Attention management principles that they can implement into your working day
  • The importance of nurturing downtime

On successful completion of this course you will receive a Tyro Training Certificate of Attendance.

If your organisation is based in North Yorkshire it must be working in one of the following sectors to be eligible for funding through The Skills Service: manufacturing (except food), transport and logistics, digital and creative, business and finance, medical technology or retail.
