What does it mean… Attention Pays?

To pay attention to what really matters. Each day to be in awe and wonder and say ‘that’s ah-mazing!’

  • Attracting and engaging top performers so they are ready to conquer the world! 
  • Getting more done and increasing productivity. 
  • Increasing sales, improving customer satisfaction and creating significant moments that matter.

Sounds great, right? We all want those things! Only it’s not easy to focus on what matters when we feel like we’re juggling a million different things at once. It’s hard to keep up that excitement for life—and for being our best selves every day—when we’re overstressed, overwhelmed and overtired.

Attention pays is all about focusing our attention on what’s important in our lives so we can create those moments that matter. It’s about growing our impact and influence, both personally and professionally, so we can create more significance every single day for our team and our customers.

I meet so many people in my line of work, and I am being entirely sincere when I tell you that Neen James is at the top of my list of speakers. Not only is her energy contagious, she takes a potentially dry topic (productivity) and makes it interesting and achievable. Neen’s goal is to help clients “get on with it” so that they can “spend more time with the people and things in their lives that matter.”

In addition to helping learners find and maximize their own individual “productivity style,” Neen shares best practices on email, social media and meeting management, as well as workflow process improvement and leadership.

I have very high expectations, and Neen exceeded all of them. I look forward to working with her for many years to come!

Answer yes to any of those? It’s time to learn how to “fold time”! This productivity keynote and support resource is a must for leaders and high-volume sales pros who are sometimes scrambling to manage their time, focus their attention, and motivate their teams to achieve at the highest level.
