Most of us work in a style that isn’t based on research or the science of productivity. It’s simply reacting all day, to other people, other people’s crisis mentality, devices, interruptions, and stress. It’s a retaliatory style that plays right into stress and the burnout model, which are all about reacting before we think. It undermines productivity and drives overwhelm.

It’s a more productive, healthier, road to success.

“As co-chair of the Fall Conference, I was very nervous regarding how my peers would receive the information from the training. We all work in fast-paced stressful work settings. Everyone kept commenting on how wonderful the training was and how interactive it was. Some told me about which tips they were going to use right away. I felt the same and, on my drive home after the conference I was speaking to my daughter and shared a few tools she could use in her everyday life as a college student. I highly recommend this training for everyone."
