This fun and engaging workshop will help you learn new ways to approach your work that will empower you to work not harder, but smarter. You’ll accomplish more in less time, with less effort and less stress.

The workshop provides breakthrough techniques for managing your time and priorities as well as organizing your to-do lists, email and documents. Goals include learning to:

    For those of you who have jobs where you are constantly juggling many projects at once, or if you are continuously interrupted during your work day this is a great opportunity to learn tricks and skills to help you stay organized.

    I took this class from Pierre through my last employer and gained a great deal from it. Pierre is very helpful and insightful in his approach.

    I highly recommend you take this class, if it is not already filled up.
