Virtual Book Club, The National Council Jeanne is leading this book club series featuring the works of keynote speakers at the National Council Conference, including President Bill Clinton, leadership guru Patrick Lencione, and others.
Strategic Leaning Wary of launching another ("Oh will this ever end ...!") strategic plan? Strategic Leaning's new approach unleashes the power of true strategic intent and creativity.
Stellar Customer Service - Inside Out Want the real secret to stellar front-line service? It's organizational excellence (NOT politeness-training 101). Jeanne helps you identify & fix your organization's weak spots.
Sowing the Seeds An entire generation of public & non-profit leaders will be retiring soon. Is your organization attracting and keeping your future stars? Jeanne can help you take "workforce development" to a whole new level.
Merger Bliss Considering strategic partners, joint affiliations or merger? Success depends on both (straightforward) practicalities and (trickier) emotions. Jeanne's training & consultation handles both.
It's Weird & It's Wonderful Let's face it, alternative medicine is steadily creeping into the mainstream, full of foreign concepts, odd techniques, and wild debates about efficacy. Jeanne can help make sense of the noise by summarizing different systems & methods, suggesting what's relevant, pointing to trustworthy (and questionable!) research, and offering some solid next steps. While admittedly a fan, Jeanne doesn't proselytize about any approach -- instead she gives you the resources to decide for yourself.
I knew multi-tasking was wiping me out, but seems it makes me wildly unproductive, too. A Stanford University study says those of us who work, answer emails & texts, and talk on the phone at a frenzied pace ....
... can't pay attention because we're constantly distracted by irrelevant information.
... can't remember things.
... and can't focus on the immediate task because we can't keep things straight in our minds.
As a result, I've turned off all those notification beeps. I'm silencing my phone when I work. I'm not checking email or sorting paper when I talk on the phone. And as hard as it is, I'm trying to do one task at a time until it's done.
I'm definitely less dizzy & exhausted. And I'm actually accomplishing something.
