Learn a systematic approach to create focused attention and sustained concentration.

Due to the pandemic, we are all coping with heightened anxiety and constantly changing expectations. We are tired, stressed, and easily distracted. Another thing that affects our concentration is trying to think of too many things at once. We can overload ourselves in seconds.

Our core brain is hard-wired to switch our attention to noise or movement. It's one of our many survival mechanisms. In an office, it could be the ping of an email or a flashing light on your phone. Once your attention has been distracted, it takes real effort to re-focus.

This CPA Ontario course, will help to complete important work more quickly, with less effort.

There will be a final quiz which will help you implement your new insights immediately.
