Presentation Topics

I Used to Have a Handle on Life, But it Broke 

Working 24/7 and still can’t get it all done? Most of us feel that the only way to manage the mounting chaos in our lives is to take control. If only we could get a handle on life! No wonder we have overwhelming to-do lists that leave us feeling exhausted and powerless. In this heartwarming and funny program you’ll learn straightforward, innovative techniques for keeping your balance no matter what life throws your way.

Stop Screaming at the Microwave 

How to Connect Your Disconnected Life

You’ve organized, prioritized, delegated and simplified, and you still don’t have enough time for your family, your spouse, your friends, your boss – much less yourself. You’re a veteran of the time-management wars, fighting for the life balance ideal – and you are losing! In this humorous and fast-paced presentation you’ll learn a new approach for keeping your life in balance with the Connection Solution. You will leave armed with practical, innovative “works in real life” ideas you will want to implement immediately.

Keeping Your Life in Balance When Cloning Yourself Won't Work 

The old ways of balancing our lives focused on how to do more by working harder and faster. We’ve learned the hard way that what we have tried hasn’t worked. We are busier than ever. In this fun and idea filled program you will come to realize that even though life is whizzing by, there are specific strategies that can bring more harmony into your home and work life – strategies that work equally well with both men and women. If you are black and blue from juggling, it is time for the New Approach to Life Balance.

The Power of Paying Attention 

We are rewarded for overworking, overscheduling, and being overwhelmed. It’s a common approach but one that slows productivity, increases absenteeism, raises health care costs and causes us to ache. The only thing that can reverse this is to tap into our power to pay attention. In this unique twist on what really works, you’ll see a better way to reach your goals and feel good at the same time.
