This productivity and time management course will:

We all have the same amount of time each day, so why is it that some people manage to get more of the right things done and others don’t? This course won’t give you more hours, but it will teach you how to be mindful and deliberate about your time and to work with purpose.
During this hands-on workshop, you will learn the fundamentals of time management: understanding the value of time, using proven ways to get the most out of a day, balancing work and home, eliminating time wasters, conquering procrastination, and more.

We’ve facilitated the program dozens of ways onsite and, upon request, can tailor it to your group’s specific needs and goals.
