“To make attention pay, it has to be to the right people, the right things, the right way.”
In this episode, I speak with repeat guest Neen James and we talk about her latest book, Attention Pays: How to Drive Profitability, Productivity and Accountability. Neen’s new book spotlights the power of attention and absolute focus. Personally: WHO we pay attention to. Professionally: WHAT we pay attention to. And Globally: HOW we pay attention in the world—and to the world.
Neen and I also talk about the biggest misconception businesses have when it comes to attention, how to deal with people who want to have their cell phones out in meetings and the difference between each generation and how they understand attention. Neen shares that “In business we think we’re paying attention, but we’re not. We’re paying attention, but we’re paying attention to the wrong things.”
