After a couple of years of showering her team with tangible gifts of appreciation to keep morale going, Elaine came across a quote that challenged her assumptions: “Attention is the rarest and purest form of generosity.”

Now, she’s on a quest to be generous with her attention instead of gifts—and she's looking to apply this concept across her professional life. Elaine will break down some best practices from Atomic Object and guide us in engaging exercises. You’ll have no problem paying attention to this session!

Takeaways include:

  • Tools to be more self aware when offering attention—even over Zoom.
  • A process for bringing structured attention to employees' career aspirations.
  • Ways to create a culture of active listening among fellow leaders, employees and clients.
