Do you…

  • Feel overwhelmed by everything you need to do and don’t know where to start?
  • Let tasks fall through the cracks that later turn into emergencies?
  • Keep thinking about work, even when you are trying to spend quality time with your family and friends?

This workshop will start you on the road to moving from too busy and too stressed to accomplishing more in your day, working smarter, and having more time, energy, and presence in your life.

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • How to avoid the biggest mistakes that keep you from accomplishing more each day so that you can get more done in less time.
  • The two key questions you must ask about everything that has your attention so that you can feel more in control of your work.
  • A simple framework for managing the details of your life and work so that you can stay focused, work less, and accomplish more.

In addition, you will have the opportunity to apply these strategies to your own work during the workshop and create a starting point for a system that will help you get more done in less time with a full sense of accomplishment

Prior to launching his consulting business, Chris worked in various corporate finance roles, including strategic planning, cash flow analysis, and performance management and reporting.
