  • “Rip Out the Rear View Mirror”

    45-75 minutes

    Where Our Focus Goes... Energy Flows

    Rip Out the Rear View Mirror is about being present, focusing all our energies on our day, and doing great work.  It’s time to stop looking back, having regrets, and trying to change the past. This is time we will never get back and the more we focus on the past the less we are focused on the here and now.

    How do you “Rip Out the Rear View Mirror” and never look back? You focus on the here and now, you determine what you want and you go after it. When we aren’t focused on the here and now and don’t know what we want is when we wander. Wandering allows us to live in the past, dwell on our failures, and waste energy.

    Focus– Focus all your energies on accomplishing your goals and objectives

  • “Working in the Moment”

    45-75 Minutes

    Work Safety

    In today’s fast-paced world, we are rarely working in the moment.  We are reflecting on the past, or thinking about the future, and this lack of working in the moment is a major cause of accidents.  Every year, un-focused acts costs billions of dollars in damage and injury. 

    “Working in the Moment” combats this problem by giving audience members the tools to operate in the present moment, concentrate better, and heighten their attention to detail while effectively managing distractions.  Distractions include being sleep deprived, hungry, along with the digital distractions that keep our focus on us rather than the job we are doing at that moment. 

    Outcomes

    • Breathing Techniques to slow down and become present ˆ
    • Stop distracting thoughts by shifting one’s focus off of oneself
    • Learn how to make spontaneous decisions with thoughtful consideration
    • Experience and express emotions in a safe and healthy fashion
    • Strategies to help other people focus, including co-workers, family and friends
  • “Masks”

    45-75 Minutes

    Focus on the 93%... Not the 7%

    Taking off the “Masks” allows for:

    Transparency 

    Improved communication

    Accountability

    Strengthened relationships

    Fierce conversations

    • Stop Throwing Stones- By suspending judgments cultures go from negative to positive
    • Manufactured Realities- Escape a negative manufactured reality that creates fictitious stories with a beginning, middle, and an end
