The Age of Attention

“If I want to shift someone’s reality, I just have to shift their frame of reference.”

René Rodriguez’s opening keynote of AMPCON 2022 live at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas is presented here as a taste for podcast listeners. In this keynote speech, René outlines the generational shift we’ve undergone that has hollowed out our connection with our supervisors/managers and leaders. Overcoming this “narrative gap” is an inherent effect of using the AMPLIFII™ formula, as René makes plain.

Whether you were in attendance or not, this speech is a call to action for each of us to center our values and beliefs in our actions and messages to better cross that divide for your employees, clients, customers or even your family.
