Calmly execute your most important work.

Are you burned out from fighting fires at work?

Learn how to put ‘em out for good.

The all-too-common problem of fighting fires at work has a lot of professionals asking, “How do I prioritize all of the tasks I need to get done?  Does work really need to be so stressful and demanding?  Is there a way to get ahead of all of my emails, meetings, and interruptions so I can work on the things that really matter?”

Performance Improvement Toolkit is a hands-on, actionable online course that enables you to solve the biggest problems in your organization—not just getting a lot done, but getting the right stuff done.  That means identifying what will make the biggest difference and saying no to the rest.  Learn how to calmly execute your most important work.

We should all be fighting fewer fires at work.  (Except for actual firefighters, of course!)  That’s why I developed the Performance Improvement Toolkit. There is a way for you to reclaim your freedom at work, to create space in your schedule and generate immense value for yourself and your organization.  Hundreds of employees have tested these ideas and proven that you can do great work without all the stress and frustration that usually comes with it.

A Productivity Effectiveness Course
without the Rah-Rah!

This is not a productivity course.  The goal is not to work faster, harder, and longer.  It's more about effectiveness and getting the best stuff done, the essential projects and activities that account for 90% or more of the results.

As a professional instructional designer, I developed this training program with deliberate emphasis placed on skill development and practical application.  The focus is for the content to be useful to you instead of motivational. (I am sure you will appreciate this aspect.  I am not trying to excite you do to great work here.  I am just teaching you how to get there.)




Self-paced course.

12 lessons.

The learner is encouraged to practice the skills learned in each lesson.

Lifetime access to course content.

Videos, PDF worksheets, diagrams, and job aids that enhance learning.  

This isn’t a “sit and sip from the proverbial training firehose” experience.

This is an online course, so all you need is an electronic device (computer, tablet, or smartphone) with internet.  The course is optimized for all these devices.  The lessons are structured in a consistent, easy-to-follow format.

The course tracks your progress as you go, and you can get any support you need from me along the way.

You don’t need to go to a seminar across the country to learn and grow as a professional.  I have formatted this learning experience as an online course instead of a face-to-face workshop to provide an affordable professional development opportunity that you can’t get anywhere else.

Stop fighting fires.

Slay dragons instead.

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that your job is to answer emails, fix things that break, and react to fires all day.  As you know from my book, Put Out the Fires!, your job is not to be a firefighter.  Become a dragon slayer instead.  Get ready to calmly execute your most important work.
