Focus: The Top Priority for Leaders

By BlessingWhite , a Division of GP Strategies

The importance of focus cannot be overlooked. In our work with leaders and leadership teams, we often hear that the inability to focus is one of the biggest challenges of high-performance leadership. Regardless of geography, leaders wrestle with how to maintain focus on what they need to accomplish. It’s hard to complete really important or strategic tasks because everything is urgent. The demands and technology of today have created the need for leaders to be accessible 24/7. Their teams are looking for consistent direction while others in the organization are shifting their demands and causing them to redirect their attention—rarely do they feel like they move the ball forward.


Focus is elusive, yet, at the same time, it’s something leaders desperately crave. During this webinar, speaker Mark Smith, author of Distinctions: 52 Lessons in Leadership, will share stories from his experiences working with successful leaders from across the globe and provide practical tips on how to ensure greater focus on the things that matter.
