How to Get More with Less and Increase Your Productivity 

Participants will learn how to increase productivity, keep distractions from usurping their day, and learn where their time is currently spent and the importance of planning their day, week and life, both professionally and personally. We all have 24-hours in a day. The key is to figure out how to use those hours wisely so that we reap the benefits. 


  • Essential keys to planning your day, prioritizing, and turning those high priorities into goals
  • Fundamental habits that keep distractions and interruptions at bay to help increase productivity 
  • Guidelines to becoming consciously aware and engaged with every task you do to prevent a loss of concentration and too much multi-tasking
  • Solutions to getting out of the "fire-fighting" mode and focusing on what is most important
  • Understanding different personality types that either make or break your day and your productivity 
  • Appreciating the importance of organization and how that goes hand in hand with an increase in your efficiency and others
  • Managing the stress that goes with any job
