 Chaos and change are a part of our lives.  In the FM community, we face quite a bit of it every day.  We can either choose to flail about or drown in the chaos, or we can learn to surf the big waves that keep coming at us.  If you have the sense like you are “never caught up” or you are overwhelmed, or worse yet, you wake up in the middle of the night thinking about work, then you need surfing lessons.  This is not a Zen, philosophical approach.  This is a practical nuts and bolts training to give you the skills you need to embrace chaos.

Program Length:  1 Hour

Learning Outcomes:
Learn an airtight system that does the following and more:
1. Increase your productivity
2. Reduce your self-inflicted wounds
3. Prevent you and your staff from “dropping the ball”
4. Gain clarity and mental freedom
