Work Smarter, Live Better
In an always-on world, it's very easy to get caught up in a work style that keeps us acting before we think, reacting to devices and others all day. It's an unsustainable pattern that leads to doing more than we can do well, stress, burnout, and reduced productivity.
There's a more productive way to work: managing demands, instead of having them manage us. This inspirational training shows your team how to do that, by using the latest research and best practices to make key adjustments to how they perform tasks and respond to stress, time frenzy, and other reflex behaviors.
They also get strategies to activate a fulfilling life outside the office, shown by the research to increase attention and success on the job.
The research shows that work-life balance
is an essential engagement tool, building proactive, committed employees. Gallup found that people who have good work-life balance are 21% more productive.
Give your team the best tools science has to offer, and the performance—and employee survey results—will make you glad you did. See Work-Life Balance
Managing Crazy-Busy Work
Brains are under siege in an unbounded world. This program gives your team tools to get the flood of information and interruptions under control and restore the chief productivity weapon: attention. From interruption management, to time management, to information management, your staff gets strategies proven by the science to produce smarter work and savvier self-management.
Productivity is not a function of rote racing full-blast or sheer endurance. It's about mobility, moving in the right direction for the outcome we want. That doesn't happen when we act before we think.
The program builds attention and prioritization skills and sets the terms of engagement with devices run amok. Your team learns how to get more done in less time by managing technology, qualifying urgency, setting boundaries, resisting distractions, and making adjustments to counterproductive time sinks.
In addition, participants learn invaluable refueling skills to keep minds and bodies at optimal performance levels. See Productivity page
Manage Any Challenge
Stress causes 40% of worker turnover, and health costs for people with high stress are 46% more expensive. Stress is also contagious, spreading through the organization, undermining attention and decision-making ability and driving conflicts.
There's no reason to put up with the huge downside of stress and the hair-trigger emotions it brings. This program arms your team with the most powerful practices to stop stress in its tracks.
They learn to contest the false alarms of fight-or-flight and turn off the danger signal. When that happens, the stress response stops in four minutes.
This program gives your team the best stress reduction tools, from reframing techniques, to belief challenge, progressive relaxation, and mindfulness. Controlling stress is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve performance and cut health costs. See Stress
Hidden in every organization is a vast untapped potential that can boost profits, teamwork, and performance. Engaged workers are 28% more productive (Conference Board).
This program gives your organization the tools to unlock that enormous engagement potential by giving employees the proper incentives and structures shown to produce the trust, competence, and self-initiative that leads to fully engaged workers.
This program is not business as usual. We use the latest motivation research to change the way leaders and employees interact. We follow the science to new relationships based on two-way communication, more shared decisions, and internally oriented goals.
If your organization would prefer to not leave effort and dollars on the table, and would like to create a cohesive, enthused, and involved workforce, this program can help you utilize your company's biggest asset to the fullest. See Employee Engagement
Control Email Overload
Information overload and constant interruptions are decimating attention and driving burnout and costly mistakes. The average knowledge worker is interrupted every three minutes. More than a third of the day is now eaten up by email for most employees. It's not sustainable.
Every email results in six emails. They're like rabbits. They proliferate. It's time to spay and neuter email with tools proven by the science to rein in the chaos.
This program shows how to rein in email abuse with a system that restores order to the chaos and time sink of unbounded messaging.
Your group will be able to dramatically cut the volume of messaging and interruptions with the strategies in this program. There is light at the end of the in-box. See Email Overload
