6 ways to increase focus and performance
We all want focused, high-performing employees. But before we can expect our teams to complete their tasks with efficiency, accuracy and creativity, we need to first train ourselves to perform at a consistently high level.
Ken Sundheim, CEO of KAS Placement Sales and Marketing Recruiters, discusses on the Personal Branding Blog six ways we can train ourselves to constantly perform at a high level. His list includes:
- Define your goals and prioritize tasks accordingly. What do you want to accomplish today? ItÃ¢ÂÂs helpful to write down your objectives and how they will help you meet your overall goals.
- Slow down. Ã¢ÂÂWhen you work with a deliberate slowness, it allows you to more effectively pay attention to the task at hand,Ã¢ÂÂ Sundheim says.
- Conquer negativity. Negative thoughts can impair your productivity.
- Confront procrastination. Sundheim suggests using self-imposed deadlines and breaking a project into smaller ones to combat procrastination.
He mentions a couple more training tips here.
If we maintain a strong focus and adopt good practices that lead to heightened effectiveness, our employees will follow suit.
