Most CFA Charterholders today struggle keeping up with the flood of "stuff" in their world (e-mails, phone calls, meetings, reports, and commitments) that far exceed their mental and emotional capacities. As a result of this flood, they lose track of their goals and experience stress, worry, and guilt – and are far less productive than they could be.
The Managing Me (MM) workshop takes the latest research about personal productivity, makes it practical, and creates an engaging experience that helps people apply the life-changing principles. MM teaches six foundational skills that people need to succeed in today's knowledge intensive world. Our research shows that people who develop these six skills will be more focused on the right priorities, meet their commitments more faithfully, have a greater sense of accomplishment about both personal and professional goals, improve relationships at home and work, reduce stress, worry, and guilt, be healthier emotionally, mentally, and physically -- and get more "good things" done.
