P.U.M.P.™ – Pump Up My Productivity  (alternative title: The Productive Leader)

Unpacking the 3 P’s to productivity!

Time Management is a misnomer and wishing time would stand still or having another few hours in your day is just wasting valuable energy.

Time is precious: there are only so many hours in the day. Yet there has never been more pressure to do more, amp up results and deliver. Interruptions, distractions and bad habits all throw our productivity and potential into chaos.

We’re on 24/7: It’s a cruel irony that in a world of immense connectivity, we feel increasingly disconnected and unproductive. The incessant emails, phone calls and social media alerts steal precious family and leisure time. it can seem impossible to “switch off”.

The Productive Leader knows how to achieve more. They reduce stress, maximise their time and stay focused by leveraging their skills, people and resources. They are in control, inspire others and are happier. In this presentation Sally show you the why, what, and most importantly, the how of becoming a productive leader.

One day workshops also available for The Productive Leader and The Productive Team

Every Day Is A Big Day In Business

Shifting from surviving to thriving is easier than you may think.

In a world that is demanding you to deliver more and find ways to deliver better, to be connected 24/7, it simply means that every day becomes a high powered, high pressured BIG day!

Through my own stories, I’ll inspire your audience to take stock of the status quo as in order to prevent burnout, costly mistakes, fractured workplace (and potentially family) relationships and lost business. I’ll show how multitasking is the thief of time and how your audience can be more productive by not multitasking, being truly present, and finding focus.

This is an engaging session with a fun twist in which attendees will take away some simple put powerful tips and tools for greater productivity. Your audience will shift from just surviving to thriving!

  • The world of work and you
  • Every Big Day starts with you
  • Being productive needs your presence
  • Focus so you shift from survive to thrive
  • Multi-tasking isn’t multi-tasking, it’s theft
  • How you can get more done in the same time you’ve always had
