Intentional Focus:

Essential Leadership Skills for the Workplace

Time and energy management, productivity, communication, problem-solving, conflict management, and collaboration skills are more important in determining success and satisfaction among similarly trained colleagues than academic knowledge or technical skills.

Without these crucial behavioural skills, we are unable to fully leverage our education, talent, and experience in a sustainable manner. It is amazing what happens when you do!

For the first time in a long time I feel excited about the future.”

The Program:

During Intentional Focus you will learn and develop these essential skills and behaviours. You will also increase your energy, emotional happiness, mental focus, and sense of meaning and purpose in life. And you will have fun doing it!

You will also be encouraged and supported during Intentional Focus to take on a challenge that will change your perspective of what you are capable of, and you will test behaviour which will lay the foundation for your continued success.


Research in education and brain-based learning theory indicates that experiential education is the most effective method for accelerating meaningful behavioural change and skill development. When we learn through experience, inquiry, critical thinking, and interaction, our insight is more likely to lead to perspective shifts that will change our behaviour in a meaningful and lasting manner


You will attend seven full-day group sessions from 8:45 am to 4 pm, and you will test new behavior in between sessions. Lunch is on your own from approximately 12-1 pm.
