Engaging the Fickle Mind

Date: 
21 Mar 2016 - 18:00
Event Details: 

The mind is fickle now due to the engagement in Facebook, Candy Crush Saga, Farmville, Instagram, Snap Chat and varying other interests. The mind keeps wandering around and attention spans are reducing drastically. As a result, the focus and attention on work reduces as the constant movement of mind from work to other aspects of interest affects quality of work. This is a big challenge for managers to keep them focused in achieving strategic business results. In today's competitive business environment, it is important that team members are fully focused in their work as quality outcomes can be created only by focused work. Engaging the fickle mind need an engaging corporate culture.
 

An engaging corporate culture requires creating the right attitude and behaviours of all team members and such attitudes and behaviours are created only when leaders walk the talk, dance the dialogue and practice what they preach. Leaders require methods to make work interesting so that they engage the fickle mind and get it directed towards work, at least during working hours. Ranjan De Dilva with his experience of helping CEO'S and senior leaders of Multinational and local companies in over 22 countries will create an engaging learning experience to help the delegates experience how to engage the fickle mind of their team members.
