OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE:
The Art of Effectiveness

This program gives your organization the tools to work smarter and more effectively. It arms leaders and staff with the best research tools to control chaos and overwhelm and enhance the chief productivity tool, attention.

Autopilot is not a strategy for effective performance. It drives false urgency, stress, and rushing, which kick attention down to the lowest floors of the brain.

Increase performance with a system that brings full engagement to every task, allowing your team to get more done in less time, with more focus, better results, and less distractions and stress. 

This lively, interactive program offers easy-to-learn, proven processes to control information overload, cut stress, redesign task bottlenecks, improve prioritization, create focus zones, and upgrade project management. Click here for more presentation information...

PRODUCTIVITY Management

Productivity gets a caffeine boost 

Get More Done with Less Caffeine

If it's hectic where you are, you're not alone. Most organizations are caught up in a tide of overwhelm and distraction that is draining performance and driving a host of unproductive habits, from quick fuses, to chronic stress, to attention deficit trait. Five-Hour Energy and caffeine-binging only makes the frenzy worse.

A recent LexisNexis Workplace Productivity study found that professionals “feel overwhelmed, demoralized.” It cited the toll of information overload in bringing people and systems to their knees.

Performance, and the chief productivity tool, attention, are taking a beating in the process. Some 91% of Americans say they delete work emails without fully reading them, while 60% are having trouble focusing on the task at hand from all the interruptions. 

We Build a More Effective Work Style

Our Productivity Management programs build a style of work that's actually based on something productive—the research. Your team learns how to do tasks and solve challenges with proven tools, not raw emotion and triage—and think before they act.

The goal is full engagement, absorption in the task at hand, which brings more control over the work environment, less stress, better results, and more satisfaction with the finished product.
