Three Strategies to Pull Your Team Out of Fire-Fighting Mode
Imagine you have the freedom to focus on what you do best - and at the end of the day, you know you accomplished exactly the right tasks in the most effective and efficient manner possible. When you understand and implement the A.W.E. Time Management process, your reality IS less work while still accomplishing more.

Participants will:

  • Learn how to easily identify your real fires and those of your team
  • Create strategies to minimize the amount of time spent in fire-fighting mode
  • Increase productivity (and income) by creating consistent thinking time

Get ready to reclaim hours each week as you build a strategy to attack each day proactively instead of reacting to every emergency.
NOTE:  This is an interactive workshop, so bring your calendar, to-do list, and willingness to participate!
Delegate Like a Pro
The way to really grow your business, without increasing the amount of time you work, is to stay in your zone of genius, doing the work that you excel at, and delegating the rest. After all, when you try to do EVERYTHING, something suffers. Delegating can be tough. How do you make sure you empower your employees and subcontractors without micromanaging the work? 

In this interactive workshop, participants will:

  • Know exactly which tasks are – and are not – worth their time.
  • Understand a paint-by-numbers system to delegate effectively.
  • Overcome the common delegating objection, “By the time I delegate it, I could have just done it myself”

Your current time management skills got you this far – now it is time to master the next level so you can flourish.
