    Event Description:

    Welcome to our Lunch & Learn sessions: These 1.5 hour sessions are combined with networking and a light lunch, and are designed around key learning outcomes to help your businessand your skill-set grow.

    Presented by the Mission Community Skills Centre, our sixth seminar is all about "Attention Management, Controlling the Distractions" with Jason Wong, Group Therapist Specialist. Researchers indicates an interruption of 2-8 seconds doubles the errors made when you returned to a task, and with the 4.4-second interruption, the error rate quadrupled. This workshop goes beyond time management. It teaches the ability to control distractions, how to single task for higher-quality results, and how to engage in sustained, focused attention when necessary.

    Key learning outcomes include:

    ·         What are unproductive behaviors
    ·         The truth about multitasking and reactive behaviors
    ·         What is a distracted work environment
    ·         Work environments to support focused and single-tasking

    *WiFi available 
    *Light lunch provided
    *Seats limited!
