This seminar ended up being scheduled at one of my busiest times and I attended thinking, ‘How am I going to take time away from business?’ It was just what I needed! A mental vacation, a time to move out of my ‘professional’ box and live in my ‘personal’ box for a change! I learned that it is not only important to lead your employees by professional example but personal as well. If you have a balanced life and fun, you are setting the same tone for your team as well.

Advanced Time Management & Personal Productivity

Work Smart, Live Smart


Busy professionals live complex lives. Leaders routinely remark that the high volume of daily tasks, meetings and obligations they face limit their effectiveness and productivity, often leading to burnout. In this always-on, multichannel world, it is a challenge to be fully focused and present in the moment. This leads to interrupted thinking and impacts our ability to prioritize. More time spent working isn’t the solution; professionals need advanced tools to manage this increasing complexity and achieve more while caring for their health and lives. Advanced Time Management & Personal Productivity draws from our decades of research on how and why highly-effective individuals set goals, plan their days, prioritize their time and organize their lives. As a participant, you will discover and investigate the personal obstacles preventing you from achieving your highest level of performance, in every facet of your life. At the completion of the program, you will have a plan to increase your personal productivity while leading a healthier, happier life.

You will learn to:

  • Analyze your current time management practices and uncover the anchors that prevent you from achieving more.
  • Identify and set clear, focused goals for yourself, in your work, health, relationships, finances and other essential areas.
