podcast - attention training 1

Our capacity to focus is our most incredible skill as cognitive workers. However, attention has become a resource. We live in the attention economy, where businesses compete for our attention every day, following us around in our homes, through our phones, on public transport, at work and especially during our time off.

How has this impacted the way we use our attention, the way we self-regulate? Do we struggle to stay focused, get distracted by technology, or procrastinate more?

We are here today with Xenia Angevin to help us uncover some of the truths and myths about our attention. Xenia is a multi-lingual psychologist, expert negotiator & learning & development specialist who helps clients become more strategic in the environments impacted by globalisation, high pressure, ambiguity and volatility.

Xenia focuses on helping to develop a powerful sense of purpose, life-work balance and stress tolerance. In her work as an ADHD coach, Xenia uses cognitive psychology to increase her capacity for clarity, focus and productivity and get away from procrastination and the distractions of the attention economy.
