Time Leadership: Creating a Culture of Productivity
In this 1-hour thought-provoking seminar, Julie helps managers and leaders see the role they play in creating a culture of productivity. By consciously developing protocols around email, meetings, quiet time, interruptions and time off, good time leadership enables organizations to thrive.

Productivity Skills For Knowledge Workers
Employees today have a unique challenge—they must focus in a highly distractible environment, adapt to changing roles, streamline day-to-day responsibilities, and consistently carve out time for strategy and innovation. WorkSmart is Julie's signature, tried-and-true productivity workshop, that has been shown to effectively help workers manage their energy and brain power for peak performance. WorkSmart teaches high performers how to work smarter, not harder, by choosing the most important tasks and creating the time to get things done. Participants report an average of 50% increase in daily task completion, and 70% increase in time spent on high-level tasks each day, and long term retention of strategies learned. This is a course that will transform the way individual contributors, managers and knowledge workers throughout your organization get things done.
Participants learn to:
Manage competing priorities
Create the time to get things done
Structure days for peak efficiency
Streamline workloads to work smart, not hard
Results: More time on proactive vs reactive tasks, increased sense of control and contribution.
thriving at work and at home
In a high achieving work culture, employees can struggle to balance work and personal life. As much as they may crave balance, feelings of guilt, worry about perceptions, and lack of skills can keep them from getting the renewal they need. The cost to companies is huge: employee burnout, inefficiency and turnover. Smart employers recognize the need to provide both permission and a process for creating a healthy work-life balance that equips employees to go the distance and bring their best to work every day. WorkBalance provides participants the essential insights and tips they need to embrace a healthy work-life balance, that doesn’t take away from work productivity--but actually fuels it.
Attendees learn how to:
Identify and overcome what is holding them back
Resist technology impeding on time off
Routinize time off for maximum rejuvenation
Gracefully say “no”
Increase mindfulness in transitioning to and from work
