Manage Workload, Sleep Better, Set Boundaries

HUMANS ARE NOT BORN TO BE STUCK. Our brain neurons want progress and movement. What would you like to make progress on? Manage stress and anxieties about what will happen next? Sleep better? Deal with a setback? Handle a difficult person? Create a happier life? Break the burnout cycle? Deal with deadlines better?

I enjoy coaching, because I get to work with people determined to push past the roadblocks and realize their potential. Like the real estate agent whose stress was so severe, she could only sleep three hours a night. Or the systems engineer who was overwhelmed by workload. Like the CEO who had a heart attack and didn't want another. And teachers, nurses, engineers, and everyone in between.

Here's what one of my clients said about her coaching experience with me:

"I was looking for a workplace expert who could help me develop skills to better manage stress at work. I didn’t think anyone could relate to, or understand, my situation. Joe was fantastic! I now understand the triggers for burnout and have learned what I can do to prevent it happening again. Joe helped me develop better boundaries, which have created a healthier work-life balance. I strongly recommend Joe. His sessions were affordable too. It was a win-win!" —Jill, manager at environmental company

The Latest Tools for Success at Work and Home


MY PROGRAM USES AN ARRAY OF TOOLS and strategies that are available in the research, but that we never hear about. It's based on proven practices that I've brought to organizations from Genentech, to Budweiser, and the University of California at Los Angeles Counseling Center and written extensively about in books, such as Work to Live and Don't Miss Your Life, audio programs, such as The Email Overload Survival Kit, and in articles for publications from Entrepreneur Magazine, to Fast Company, to the Los Angeles Times, and many blogs on this site,

Coaching is as convenient as it gets. I work with you in phone or Skype consultations wherever you are in the world to identify your goals and challenges and chart a path to the work and life you want. We zero in on key adjustments to work style to manage demands and difficulties. We clarify goals, set boundaries, and activate a happier life. It's effective, affordable, and fast. 

"You Are So Lucky - You Get to Live Every Moment"

Dont_Miss_Your_Life_cover_sm.jpgTHE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORK-LIFE HYPHEN, life, often gets overlooked, but it is key to work, and, of course, it's what the work is all about. How we recharge and engage with our world off-the-clock fuels performance on the job, connects us with family and friends, and provides the gratification of a life well-lived.

In my book, Don't Miss Your Life, which shows through the science ahow to activate the fullest life, a brave Texan named Heather Burcham put it into perspective. She was diagnosed with a terminal case of cervical cancer in her twenties and set out to live as much as she could in her remaining months. She said, "You are so lucky. You get to live every moment." And we do—if we act.
