Driven to Distraction at Work: How to Focus and Be More Productive

In this Keynote, Dr. Hallowell identifies the underlying reasons why people really lose their ability to focus at work—where many of today’s adults feel distracted and unproductive. He explains why commonly offered solutions like “learn to manage your time better” or “make a to-do list” just don’t work because they don’t address the deeper, underlying issues of mental distraction at play.

Through a set of reliable techniques, Dr. Hallowell will show how anyone can regain control of their attention and most productive mental state. By identifying the most common patterns for how and why people surrender their attention, Dr. Hallowell will provide solutions on how to break the habits that undermine their effectiveness.

SHINE: Using Brain Science to Get the Best from Your People

Your job as a manager is getting harder all the time. But your most critical responsibility–especially in today’s world of intensifying competition and economic stress–is how to help your people shine their brightest. What do you do when your most talented employees fall short of their potential? How do you inspire a solid contributor to strive for more? What should you try if a star player falls off their game?

In his presentation on Shine, Dr. Hallowell offers a 5-step plan for bringing out the best in people in any organization or other work setting. Rooted in his 30 years of experience in promoting peak performance, this simple, but highly researched and evidence-based plan can lead a person from mediocrity to achievement at the highest level.

Brimming with Hallowell’s trademark candor and warmth, Shine is a vital new resource for all managers seeking to inspire excellence in their teams.

THE MIND OF THE ENTREPRENEUR: Maximizing Productivity

Dr. Hallowell delved into his 30 years of working with entrepreneurs around the world, both as a consultant and as a psychiatrist, and developed a keen appreciation of how the magical mind of the entrepreneur operates. In this presentation he shares what separates successful from frustrated entrepreneurs is their ability–or inability–to capitalize on their massive psychological strengths and minimize the carnage that can be done by their weaknesses. The difference between success and frustration in entrepreneurs is mental–but it is not I.Q. or being a whiz-kid. The great entrepreneur learns how to harness and direct his mental power, while the frustrated entrepreneur spends his life trying to learn how.

THE HUMAN MOMENT (Business Audience) Note: This presentation, based on “The Human Moment at Work,” an article published in The Harvard Business Review (1/99), is designed for the business audience.

In this presentation, Dr. Hallowell defines the powerful concept of the human moment and shows how vital it is to any deal, transaction, or entire organization. In its simplest terms, the human moment refers to any live, human interaction. This is in contrast to a virtual or electronic moment in which the people involved are not physically present. While technology has given us the great blessings of voice mail, e-mail, teleconferencing, and other means of not-in-person communication, there remains a special place for the on-site meeting. Drawing upon his knowledge as a psychiatrist and his experience in consulting with corporate leaders, Dr. Hallowell is able to bridge the worlds of brain science, psychology, and business management. His call to make use of the human moment wisely, and to tap into the power of emotionally rich connections, offers a strategic advantage to businesses and organizations of all kinds.
