‘Crazy Busy’ is not a Badge of Honor: Effective Time Management for Professional Organizers and their Clients

Lisa Montanaro, Productivity Consultant, Success Coach, Speaker and Author will show how to help stop the glorification of busy and start getting things done.

Topics include time management systems, prioritization, saying no, project and task management, overcoming perfectionism and procrastination, and creating meta decisions. Be prepared for mindset shifts and behavioral changes, and working on tools during the session. Improve your own skills as you juggle running a business while living a full life, and pass what you learn onto your clients!

Lisa’s presentation will help you…

1) Determine how your relationship with time plays into your time management skills and how to shift your mindset to improve those skills.
2) Review various well known time management systems and processes to familiarize yourself with best practices in the field of time management, and discover which are a good match for you, your personality, your business, and lifestyle.
3) Conduct a self assessment and create custom systems that you can use to be more productive using tangible tools like an Ideal Time Map, a Task and Project Management System, and more.
4) Discover how to overcome psychological time management blocks and habits like multi-tasking, procrastination, perfectionism, and not being able to say no.
5) Gain confidence to offer time management services to your clients, while improving your own time management strategies in the process.

So many organizers are moving into productivity, but lack the solid knowledge and content to feel comfortable adding time management on as a service. The public is still very much asking for time management principles and training. Organizers and productivity consultants will experience a boost in their confidence in talking about, learning about, and passing on these time management principles and skills to their clients. Many organizers struggle with their own time management as they try to juggle running their business with their full personal lives. Therefore, professional organizers will learn a popular new skill to add onto their services, while improving their own time management in the process. This session will be CEU eligible.
