Mastering Information and Communication Overload®
Data, data everywhere, but not a thought to think! Do too many interruptions, too much reading, or too much to keep pace with plague you at work and diminish your enjoyment of life? If so, go from glut to gain. Learn how to become your own information highway, use information for maximum gain, and keep the din at a manageable level, so you can spend more time doing the things you enjoy. This program, designed for organizations whose key staff members face a daily glut of too much competing for their attention, offers essential tools for continual improvement.
Mastering Your To-Do List
To-do lists have been with us since the earliest days of humankind. Everyone has one, in one form or another. In this riveting section, mega-author and professional speaker Jeff Davidson discusses how to master your daily to-do list, how to construct it, what it should contain, what it should not contain, how to transfer what’s left to the next day, and, most importantly, the psychological strokes you need to give yourself for accomplishing the items on your to-do list. If you’re like most career professionals, you face unending interruptions and the unrelenting burden of having to handle one thing after another. As a result of attending this session, you’ll feel more at ease and much more confident in tackling what needs to be done.
Managing The Pace With Grace®
Is today’s typical working professional: Overworked, Underworked, Energetic or Lazy? The best answer is “none of the above.” The root of the time-pressure we feel and the leisure we lack is not “too much work.” There are larger, more basic, converging issues. We can handle longer hours; it’s unending interruptions and everything else competing for our attention that leaves us feeling overwhelmed, hence feeling overworked. We can, however, maintain the pace with grace — even under pressure! This action-packed program lays out Breathing Space strategies and techniques for effectiveness that anyone can quickly master.
Managing Multiple Priorities
We live in an era of belt-tightening, where shrinking budgets are a long-term, non-cyclical, phenomenon. Many career professionals today are asked and expected to do more while not being afforded any greater organizational resources. Such efforts can take their toll. Learn innovative ways to manage multiple priorities, including hand tools, power tools, and cerebral tools; the multiple-priority grid system; conditioning your environment; and more to achieve high productivity and notable results.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the presentation you made at our management meeting. As you may be aware, your presentation was on our agenda with the heading “Time Management,” and I was prepared for another boring lecture on how to better manage my time and pack more things into my day. Your approach to Breathing Space and the realities of trying to do business and have a personal life in the ’90s was refreshing and confirmed the approach I have been implementing in my own life. I look forward to seeing you again in the future and wish you continued success.

Lisa Long, USAA, San Antonio, TX
Thank you for your presentation. I like your style. You come across as fully knowledgeable on your chosen topic, with a great sense of humor and a relaxed confidence. The points made were clear, yet thought-provoking. I hope you are the one who reads this, and not someone else I haven’t even met. You must get thousands of letters!
