Available Presentation Topics (click title to see details):
Enhancing Performance (without drugs) - Dare to be more organized, focused and productive
What would happen if you could walk into your workplace, sit down to a clean desk, know what your priorities are for the day, and have everything you need to do your job effectively at hand?
This seminar helps attendees develop sharper core time-management muscles including proven techniques for handling incoming items, prioritizing and overcoming self-defeating behaviors.
Email Exhale - exchanging bad habits for good
What would happen if you channeled your creative vigor toward your email inbox? Might you find ways to (you should probably sit down for this) consistently see white space? To retrieve ancient email in seconds? Exhale instead of hold your breath when you open the application?
This productivity workshop helps attendees uncover bad email habits and replace them with productive ones so they can experience more joyful moments.
Meaty Meetings - Carving Quality Time
Imagine showing up for meetings fully prepared, engaging in meaningful dialogue to arrive at clear decisions, leaving knowing precisely what is expected of you and of others, and then seeing these efforts result in delivering high-quality outputs on a timely basis.
This productivity workshop brings these concepts closer to reality.
Finding Focus - Concentrating Amidst chaos
Envision being able to concentrate on one thing at a time, having part of each workday designated for thinking and planning, and feeling ready to solve problems and handle the unknown.
This productivity workshop teaches practical tips on how to prevent the madness of chronic multitasking, so attendees can become more productive and work more efficiently anywhere.
Taming Tasks - Orchestrating the project circus
What is a project made of? A thousand smaller tasks. Imagine faithfully maintaining a single inventory of all the actions needed to complete those tasks. Imagine knowing roughly how much time those dealings will require and the sequence you’ll use to cross them off your list. Imagine trusting this system to trigger punctual completion.
This productivity workshop turns imagination into reality.
