Untie the Knots® of Time Management Woes
( Freeing Yourself from Toxic Time Management Habits, Choices, Systems,
        People, and Relationships )

Are you sabotaging you time management efforts?

Managing time effectively is an essential skill for today's professionals. It seems as if Time is always shrinking: organizational change initiatives, up and down priorities realignments, technology overload, reduced staffing situations and a greater emphasis on flawless performance, and more! As the workplace changes as a result of current events, we are all finding ourselves required to accomplish more in less time, with limited, reduced or no resources.

The key to time management is knowing ourselves, as we can't actually "manage" time; all we can manage is our own habits (behavior).

The challenge: The work you do or the way you do it may not always align with your instinctive habits, requiring more effort on your part. This increased effort reduces your productivity, tires you out quickly, and takes more time than necessary to complete your tasks and projects.

The solution: There are 6 Time Management Personality Types, or approaches to handling time, that contribute to how you manage tasks and activities. By identifying and understanding your personal Time Management Type, you can identify the approach to Time Management that can work best for you.

In turn, affecting everything, including, building successful cohesive work teams, communication, strategic planning, dealing with change, employee morale, managing, recruiting, retention, diversity, inclusion, and maintaining and increasing productivity.

Building Successful Cohesive Work Teams Across Generations is dynamic and engaging training session grounded in the understanding of what makes each generation tick, respond differently, be inspired to do meaningful and passionate work, and why. This shift in demographics does not have to be a "threat" to your organization's long-term health, performance, stability, vision, mission, or success. The shift can be understood, prepared for, and managed. This session provides the most up-to-date researched-based lens for how today's employees handle differences, communication, engagement, conflict, trust, emotional intelligence, leadership, success, and cohesiveness among multi-generational coworkers.

Ty Howard, veteran instructor and consultant, offers specific, practical guidance for overcoming and synergizing multi-generational differences using solutions, strategies, exercises, assessments, and real-world examples. He will skillfully take your group of executives, leaders, managers and employees on a journey into honestly examining and answering the questions that all teams must ask themselves: Are we really a team? How are we currently performing? Do we accept, embrace and value one another's differences? Are we prepared to invest the time and energy required to become and be a great team across generations? If you truly want members of multi-generational teams to get to know how they each think - and willingly come and stay together in successful cohesive work teams - here is a proven approach that produces more substantive results than the purely lighthearted 'rah-rah' fun events.

The session will be customized by Mr. Ty Howard to meet your specific leadership, organizational, work team(s), and growth needs.
