The 5 Choices to Extraordinary Productivity

The demands our careers sometimes place on our shoulders can be overwhelming. Combined with distractions caused by an unending influx of information, our lives can become downright exhausting. Our ability to think clearly and make wise decisions about what’s important may suffer – and the goals in our professional and personal lives get shortchanged, or worse, not accomplished at all.

This seminar combines current neuroscience research with proven productivity principles to help you better manage your decisions, attention and energy. Learn to apply a process and maximize the use of Microsoft Outlook to dramatically increase your ability to achieve life’s most important outcomes by consistently making choices that create extraordinary value.

Benefits of Attending:

  • Learn how to better manage technology
  • Recognize how to achieve true and consistent work-life balance
  • Apply the latest science on brain health to maximize your productivity
  • Utilize a language with others to ensure you are aligned with others to ensure you are aligned around “important and urgent;
  • Create personalized, practical system for prioritizing and managing your goals

TOPICS COVERED
Choice 1: Acting on the important instead of reacting to the urgent
Choice 2:  Going for extraordinary instead of settling for ordinary
Choice 3:  Scheduling the big rocks instead of sorting gravel
Choice 4:  Ruling your technology instead of letting it rule you
Choice 5:  Fueling your fire instead of burning out

($150 materials fee).

Leading at The Speed of Trust

Leading at the Speed of Trust is a highly interactive workshop that engages leaders at all levels in the real work of identifying and closing the trust gaps that exist in your organization. Instead of paying outrageous “Trust Taxes,” your organization can begin to realize “Trust Dividends.” Doing business at the “speed of trust” dramatically lowers costs, speeds up results, and increases profits and influence. ($120 materials fee).
