Jones Loflin is the co-author of the award-winning book, Juggling Elephants. The book is a simple but profound story about a universal problem: Too much to do, too many priorities, too much stress, and too little time.
Programs available range from a 1 hour keynote to a 1 day competency-based training. Scroll down the page to review some general descriptions of what Jones delivers when he helps your people start running their circus-instead of the letting the circus run THEM!
Here's a video clip of Jones talking about one of the strategies in the book:
Juggling Elephants-Be The Ringmaster Of Your Work and Life
In this 45-75 minute presentation, Jones offers keen insight on how we seem to be constantly struggling with too much to do. He offers the timely solution of using the blueprint of a circus to help your people get more of the things done that are important to them and your organization. In this humorous and thought-provoking message, Jones shares five key strategies based on concepts in the book, including:
- Better prioritizing what needs to get done so not everything is a “crisis”
- Taking more conscious control of your time and energy
- Creating a concrete plan to transform ideas and goals into part of your daily tasks and activities
- Improving your relationships with others to increase their engagement on what is most important to you and the organization
- Discovering ways to sustain productivty in today's "always on" work environment
Half/Full Day Training
Juggling Elephants-Getting Your Most Important Things Done!
The half or full day training based on Juggling Elephants follows a 6 step process to equip participants to get their most important things done both at work and in life. The six steps are:
- Stop Trying To Juggle Elephants
- Be The Ringmaster
- Create The Lineup
- Work With The Performers
- Take An Intermission
- Plan For The Next Performance
While the half-day training delivers strategies, insights and applications for each section, the full-day training is a deeper cut, allowing more time for application exercises and additional learning. We work with you to design a program that best meets your needs, adding additional content where needed and spending less time on areas not as critical to your people.

Thank you for an absolutely outstanding event for our management team! I can't tell you the number of people who expressed how much they enjoyed it and how this was the best speaker we had ever had!
