Let us reinvent the way you work!

Streamline & Simplify.

The Wall Street Journal reported that most employees waste one hour per day due to inefficient time management skills and/or a disorganized workspace. Depending on the size of your organization, the number of unproductive work hours can be staggering!

The economy is forcing businesses to do more with less. Being more efficient and increasing productivity are not only a benefit, they’re a necessity. Managing time and priorities and maintaining an organized work environment are skills that increase productivity and have a direct effect on the bottom line.

Our lively and energetic training sessions captivate participants while motivating them to change old unproductive habits and create new routines to realize an immediate boost in productivity. The more your employees understand the basis for change and the process for making change stick, the more likely you are to see long-term productivity improvements.

      Janet Wren
      Life changing!

      The Managing Time & Priorities Workshop was life changing for me! This is the first workshop that actually showed me how to physically set up systems, manage e-mail, piles of papers, phone calls, people interruptions and deadlines. I am able to handle more work as a result and feel a huge burden has been lifted. My co-workers call my office “The Zen”.. Any employer interested in efficiency and getting more from their employees should host this workshop. Thanks Deb.

      Efficient and productive.

      I was more than pleased to see the motivation that Deb Cabral sparked in all my staff. Many workers started the next work day clearing out paper clutter. As a team we will work on organizing our time to be more efficient with all the tips that were presented to us. What I had hoped to stimulate for my staff by providing this workshop happened to a greater extent than I imagined. I am looking forward to a more organized work environment and for staff to be more efficient and productive. Thank You Deb!

      I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop on How to Become A Rock Star Speaker!

      Thank you Deb! I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop on How to Become A Rock Star Speaker! It has given me better clarity and a better process to create trainings and hold meetings. I am using the tools and information you have given me to develop staff training (I refer to the handout quite a bit!). I am really excited about the upcoming trainings you will be doing for the YWCA. I have also asked my supervisor to take a few other workshops that you offer. Thank you for giving me such great information!

      We enjoyed the educational session and know that the participants walked away with tangible lessons.

      Deb recently conducted a training session with the faculty and staff at Roswell Park Cancer Institute and provided a great presentation, engaging the audience with humor and a lively discussion. We learned about our habits, heard wonderful hands-on tips using both digital and paper, while learning to balance our work and personal lives. Our class participants set goals, both personal and professional, and made a commitment to ourselves to improve our time management with proactive processes. We enjoyed the educational session and know that the participants walked away with tangible lessons, tools to use to improve their responsiveness to “customers” and insight into making their lives more productive.

      Deb was very personable!

      Deb delivered a presentation entitled The Multi-Tasking Myth that our staff really enjoyed. After realizing the amount of time that can be wasted when you are not focused, many of our staff said they will be trying the Pomodoro Technique and other strategies that Deb taught us. Deb was very personable and staff were eager to ask questions and share their own experiences.

      Deb’s contagious optimism kept our staff engaged and her flexibility and responsiveness made her a reliable ally in achieving our training and development goals!

      “Over the last two years Deb delivered a comprehensive Leadership Training series for our organization. The monthly half-day classes were strongly attended and offered an excellent learning pathway for our current and emerging leaders. Deb also conducted on-site hour long sessions at each of our locations, allowing our staff to receive convenient training without compromising our availability to our members. When we were searching for micro-learning training options, Deb and her team created and let us pilot her Learning on the Go! modules. This library of short videos brought Deb’s energy and knowledge to a platform that could be utilized by all our staff whenever they had a short window of time to work on their development. Deb’s contagious optimism kept our staff engaged and her flexibility and responsiveness made her a reliable ally in achieving our training and development goals!
