Evidence-Based Tools

SEE VIDEO. Work-life balance leader and speaker Joe Robinson zeroes in on issues that undermine the chief productivity tool, attention, and drive rushing, crisis mentality, mistakes, stress, and overwhelm.


"Working with Joe was the best choice I made when I finally realized I had to do something about my feelings of burnout and stress at work. He quickly helped me pinpoint the main issues causing my stress and then provided practical solutions that I could use every day. Joe’s methods are a perfect mix of intellect and practicality that helps you get to the bottom of the real issues quickly. I can’t recommend him enough and I’m in a much better place mentally today because of our work together."

Alex - Digital operations

"Even if you love your work, Joe said, if you do too much of it, you'll hate it. That was me. Now I accomplish more in many fewer hours, and instead of being stressed to the point of quitting, I look forward to both coming to work and going home without feeling guilty."

Susan - Financial company

"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 - Environmental executive

"Joe's advice gave me the courage to take back my life, challenge my fear of imperfection, and realize that guilt is a choice. Thank you, Joe!"
