Description

HSBC and Guardian Labs present: Workshop 1 - The art of the pause: Mastering attention in a distracting world

Fuel: The Ambition Series. Get ahead of the rest.

A series of three workshops uncovering the tools for success for the ambitious in the 21st Century.

Are you finding it hard to focus in this distracting world? These workshops explore how our global epidemic of short-termism is changing our neural pathways, and explores strategies for deeper engagement to enable us to pursue our ambitions with renewed focus.

Workshop 1 will:


● Examine the issues of the distracting world we live in, including myths and truths.

● Explore how technology can actually be used to relax.
● Give participants opportunities for hands-on work in class to relearn 'deep learning' and how not to ‘skim and skip’. Participants will have a greater understanding of the art of concentration as a key to success.
● Help to foster a sense of community for the group.
