Boosting Productivity:
Gaining Back Time for Yourself and Your Team
May 8, 2019 with Helene Segura
Do you have employees or colleagues with access to your schedule who turn your calendar into a circus? Do you or your team ever have to put in frantic hours to finish projects at the last minute? Have you ever muttered a phrase like, “I didn’t get anything done today” or “I wish I had more time”? Busy professionals lose up to three hours per day from time leaks. Interruptions, procrastination, distractions, putting out fires, and battling overwhelm are all slow leaks that steal your time when you’re not looking. In the business world, this adds up to over ten thousand dollars of lost time per employee each year. In your personal...

Becoming Your Own Best Advocate
August 6, 2019 with Dr. John Daly
Successful advocates know how important it is to clearly communicate their ideas, how their reputations shape how people respond to their ideas, how they need to build partnerships and alliances with others in getting ideas adopted, how they must "pre-sell" any idea long before formal meetings, and how to be persuasive and influential in meetings.
