News & Opinion: Focus Like a Laser Beam/Lisa Haneberg Interview

By: Dylan Schleicher @ 8:28 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

This week's podcast is with Lisa Haneberg, author of Focus Like a Laser Beam: 10 Ways to Do What Matters Most. You may have read her popular blog Management Craft. This is Lisa's third book and the first of two coming from Jossey-Bass. Check out High Impact Middle Management and she was a contributer to More Space (disc.- I was the publisher/editor).

My interest in interviewing was to find out why she choose the laser beam metaphor and to better understand the power of focus. I am not someone who is very good at focusing. Listen to what Lisa has to say on how relaxing, fun, and challenges all have to do with focus.
