January 2021 Back to Business Session 4 – TIME and ACTION MASTERY!

Michael Charest | NAPO Houston

TIME and ACTION MASTERY!

Solopreneurs in general including professional organizers, are constantly bombarded with mixed messages about how to create a successful business. But few, if any, are provided with a SCHEDULE and ACTION BLUEPRINT of exactly how to spend their time to achieve their business goals. Professional organizers should wake up each day feeling inspired and confident knowing what exactly to do, when, why, and for how long to grow and sustain their business. When they do, the overwhelming peace of mind and confidence permeates their business and life.

Learning objectives:
1. NINE core activities you should be spending your time on weekly.
2. The “Optimal Time Allotment” for each on a daily and weekly basis.
3. How to schedule them into your calendar SO THAT YOU DO THEM!
4. Bonus: What not to be doing and a clever “ROI” for releasing them!

Outline:

  • “Stephen Covey” Time Management Overview (Demonstration or Video)
  • Organizer Big 9 Time Blocks (Callout participation)
  • Big 9 Time Allocation
  • Big 9 Time Blocking (Dyad exercise)
  • Weekly Calendar Template (Self-creation)
  • Action-Measure-Adjust
  • Delegation ROI
  • Time and Action Principles (Group review)

Transparent Power: Improve Client Outcomes through Direct Communication

Enhance your clients’ outcomes, improve sales, and ease “difficult” conversations with one powerful tool: transparency. Skills transfer and progress measurement become easier and obvious with processes so clear that clients can fully partner with you. Potential hazards evaporate with your candor at key junctures, including initial call, discussion (and enforcement) of policies and fees, follow-up, expansion requests, etc. This session provides specific language, tools, and strategies to take your practice to a clearly higher level.

She helps busy professionals regain control of their work and lives through coaching individuals and groups, leading workshops and webinars, and her book, The Productivity Chain: The Holistic Way to Spend Your Time on What Matters.
