🧐 Focus & Flow
You can concentrate longer and better. You are more often in the flow, get more done in less time and also achieve better results.
Creativity and satisfaction in your work increases. You experience more self-confidence and receive more appreciation and recognition for your work.
You build resistance to distractions. It gets easier to distance yourself from smartphone, apps and email. You are in charge of your attention.
You find a healthier balance: between work and private life, between focus and relaxation. You'll be more in the moment and feel more vital in your work.
You have more control over your work. You experience more peace and freedom, and less stress. You focus on what matters for you and your goals.
👍 New behaviour
You maintain positive new behavior, even after the training. You learn to work in a different way, and you consolidate this with new habits and routines.
About the training
What is 'Deep Work'?
The training builds on the work of author Cal Newport, who gave prominence to the term in 2016 with the book of the same name. He distinguishes two types of work:
Deep Work: performing complex thinking at the limit of your cognitive capacities without getting distracted. This creates new value and is hard to reproduce.
Shallow Work: simple, often repetitive cognitive tasks that can be performed with little mental effort and that can easily be outsourced.
In the training, participants will work to permanently improve their deep work skill with new work routines that will benefit them throughout their career.
“To produce at your peak level you need to work for extended periods with full concentration on a single task free from distraction. Put another way, the type of work that optimizes your performance is deep work.”
Cal Newport, auteur van het boek Deep Work

I am Joris de Leeuw and I investigate the theory and especially the practical side of focussed work.
Being able to work in deep concentration ("Deep Work") is, in my opinion, THE most important professional skill of our time. As a designer, product owner and project manager, I know how important it is to find your focus. Yet in my daily work I notice that many colleagues still have difficulty bringing this skill in practice.
And that's exactly where I want to help!
I like to share my knowledge and insights about deeply concentrated work without distraction; with blogs, tools, coaching and training.
