Achieving Success In Times Of Change

Your organization needs people who are not only change agents, but who have the ability to lead others through the uncertainty created by shifting priorities, processes and even attitudes.  This training equips your people with the tools to not only be more proactively aware of the need to change, but to create a blueprint to guide themselves and others to something better as they work through change. Half day or full day options 

Juggling Elephants-Managing The Struggle Of Too Much To Do

Too much to do and too little time. You have probably heard it from everyone around you at least once in the past week. In an era of “doing more with less” people are being crushed under the weight of managing multiple priorities. Built on key strategies from the award-winning book, Juggling Elephants, expect participants to leave this training better equipped to focus their time and energy to get more of the things done that are important to the organization and to their personal well-being. Half day training

Juggling Elephants-Getting Your Most Important Things Done-Now!

This training session takes a more intensive approach to time management, focus and productivity than the 1/2 day course previously listed. Participants are guided through six modules of learning to develop a concrete plan to create, execute, manage and work with others on accomplishing what is most important to the individual and the organization. Full day training
