I love leadership, laughs (and yes) libations.  I also love learning.  Although I've been in leadership roles for over 30 years, I love talking to leaders that are in the trenches and learning what works, what doesn't and what I can do differently.

This podcast is for everyone out there that is working to lead better, get more done and leave a legacy.  Leading others is a deliberative act and we can always get better.

Pop yourself open a cold one, sit back and enjoy!

Are you paying attention?  If not, you should be!  Time is never on your side unless you're paying attention to it.  My guest this week is attention expert, Neen James, CSP.  She is the author of the new book, Attention Pays, and is (quite frankly) one of the smartest people I know.  Every time I have the opportunity to talk to her, the insights she shares completely blow me away and I never leave the conversation without a shift in my own mindset.  And this conversation is no different....and (lucky for you) you get to be privy to it!  In our interview, Neen shares some key concepts from her book on how attention pays, the power of quality conversations and strategies for strengthening your relationships through attention.  This is a great one so get some material to take notes!

More on Neen...

Neen James is the author of nine books including Folding Time™ and her most recent, Attention Pays™. In 2017, she was named one of the top 30 Leadership Speakers by Global Guru because of her work with companies like Viacom, Comcast, Cisco, Virgin, Pfizer, BMW, and the FBI, among others.

Neen earned her MBA from Southern Cross University and the Certified Speaking Professional designation from National Speakers Association.  She has received numerous awards as a professional speaker, is a partner in the international education company Thought Leaders Global, and is a member of the prestigious League of Heroic Public Speakers.

Neen is a leadership expert who delivers high-energy keynotes that challenge audiences to leverage their focus and pay attention to what matters most at work and in life. Audiences love her practical strategies they can apply personally and professionally, and meeting planners love working with her – they often describe Neen as the energizer bunny for their events.

With a strong background in learning and development and managing large teams at various corporations, Neen is the perfect fit for organizations who want implementable strategies that will help their employees avoid distractions, stop interruptions, prioritize daily objectives and say ‘no’ to requests that steal time and focus from real goals and priorities.

Oh, did we mention that Neen is Australian? Why does that matter? Well, it means that she’s a bit mischievous, is pretty witty and a little cheeky.  She also considers herself an unofficial champagne taste tester … and a really slow runner.
