Manage Your Energy Rather Than Your Time

How much time do you allocate to managing your energy every day?

Time management alone, doesn’t always allow for contingency, emergency or bushfire planning. Like, the call from your boss to meet in their office “right now”, or the key staffer down with the flu, the “drop everything” urgent report that was originally due next week or the “he said, she said” that you have been asked to step in and sort out with your usual impartial efficiency etc.

It’s no surprise that many managers and teams go home from work stressed, grumpy and exhausted from basically managing a world of distractions from the main game ie getting the job done to the best of our ability. That deflation and perhaps a little letting off steam about the work day may not bring much joy to the family dinner table.

This workshop practically focuses on how we use our energy and provides tips and insights into how we can be more productive by better managing our energy rather than our time.
