Leadership requires us to deploy our attention in flexible and fluid ways to create change in a complex business world. When our attention becomes trapped, it limits our ability to see how to create change and to be present to what wants to emerge. These attention traps create a narrow filter through which we experience the world and, as a result, can keep us repeating patterns in life that don’t really move us and/or our business initiatives forward.
How each person pays attention is different. Unraveling the unhelpful lessons we have learned about attention in the past takes time, but rewards that investment many times over.
