The Age of Distraction

The Age of Distraction

Curt Steinhorst is on a mission to help today’s workforce win the battle against digital distractions. Having spent years studying the impact of tech on human behavior, he now equips professionals across the world to work smarter and stronger in this constantly-connected age.   As a leading voice on strategic communications in the age of distraction and a certified speaker at the Center for Generational Kinetics, Curt speaks on average more than 90 times a year.

He has spoken to prestigious audiences across the globe that include Nationwide, McDonalds, Wells Fargo, Wyndham Hotels, J.P. Morgan, Marriott, General Motors, Raytheon, United States Naval Academy, Aspen Ski Company, Million Dollar Roundtable, and Young Presidents’ Organization.

As a business owner, entrepreneur, and founder of FocusWise, Curt sees how lack of focus impacts today’s workplace and its leaders.  Curt’s fascination with distraction is not simply professional.  Diagnosed with ADD as a child, he’s worked tirelessly to overcome the unique distractions that today’s technology creates.   As a father, Curt understands how profoundly digital connectivity is transforming people of every age.

Discovering a rare gift for capturing the attention of large audiences at an early age, Curt was elected President of his 10,000 member class at Texas A&M University, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude.  His personal experiences serving as a speaking coach and speech writer for top performers, from executives, TV personalities, and TED Talk presenters, to NFL hall of famers, Olympic gold medalists, and the Heisman Trophy winner, make him a powerful and entertaining communicator.  Curt is the founder of a communications consultancy called Promentum Group, which is still in existence today.  He is currently working on his first book.

Steinhorst's first book "Can I Have Your Attention?: Inspiring Better Work Habits, Focusing Your Team, and Getting Stuff Done in the Constantly Connected Workplace" explains how to cut through workplace distractions to increase productivity and is due to be released in October 2017.

BECOMING A FOCUS-WISE LEADER
Since most organizations today are passively going the way of distraction, the few who wake up to the gravity of the situation and learn how to take control of their attention will see their value in the marketplace multiplied.  You set the example for how to manage your attention in the workplace. You're also in charge of figuring out how to reach your distracted customer. This speech is directed toward leaders who watch as their bottom lines and employee engagement are negatively impacted by the always-distracted workforce.

In this leader-focused speech, Curt Steinhorst answers: How can you communicate with your team to create a focused environment at work? And how can you help your organization truly stand out from the noise?  What can you do to more effectively manage the rising demands on your own attention?

 

REACHING THE DISTRACTED CUSTOMER
Today's buyer is harder to reach than ever, and even harder to keep. Their attention drives their decision-making, and that attention is ever more divided.  To effectively reach them, marketers must radically alter their strategies. Your customer's brain been rewired.  What does that mean for your sales techniques? 

In this market-focused speech, Curt Steinhorst answers: What counterintuitive communication methods can you use to surprise and delight clients who have had everything thrown at them? What shifts in behavior and expectations must you conform to before you have any chance of reaching them?  How can you leverage your customer's distracted state to communicate more effectively with them?

 

SMARTER COMMUNICATION IN THE AGE OF DISTRACTION
With communication barriers removed, the demands on today’s employees have never been greater.  Unfortunately, the vast majority of today’s organizations are upholding values, setting expectations, and relying on processes that actually contribute to the noise, stifling the productivity they are trying to create. The results are costly: 70% of today's workforce is disengaged from their work. That's dire, but it also means there's a huge opportunity for your team if you fix the problem from the inside out.

In this team-focused speech, Curt Steinhorst answers: How do you create organizational habits for open communication and highly-focused work?  How do you create environments and processes that actually bolster your capacity for focus rather than harm it?  How do you engage with emerging technology without letting it exploit you?

 

CROSSING THE GENERATIONAL DIVIDE:UNLOCKING THE POWER OF GENERATIONS™ FOR YOUR STRATEGIC ADVANTAGE
For the first time in world history, four distinctly different generations are working side by side. Each of these four generations (Matures, Baby Boomers, Generation X, and Gen Y) is guided by a different set of values, beliefs, and expectations. In Crossing the Generational Divide, Curt entertainingly reveals each generation’s preferences and priorities to highlight what they bring to the workforce—and how to build on their common ground. Curt then shares The Center for Generational Kinetics' frontline-tested process which participants can immediately rely on to lead a culture of cross-generation communication, innovation, engagement, teamwork, and performance. Filled with surprising statistics, step-by-step strategies, and laugh-out-loud stories, attendees leave this presentation prepared to make their multigenerational workforce a competitive advantage.
