The Low Down
What’s your ROI?
The average American worker loses up to three hours per day because of
- Poor concentration
- Overwhelming to-do lists
We don’t lose these three hours all at once. I call these “time leaks”…losing 10 minutes to procrastination here, 5 minutes to a distraction there, 20 minutes to an interruption….
All of these leaks add up to lost time. How valuable is that three hours of lost time per day? An employee earning $50,000 loses $17,307 of time in one year. If you have 10 employees, the lost time in one year is $173,000. When you invest in my training and consulting, you’re regaining that lost productivity time and money.
What are you getting for your investment?
*My expertise: I can assess clients and point them in the right direction during the first session. Your ROI (see the $$ above) begins immediately.
*My focus on your team: I spend approximately 20 hours of prep time before I arrive onsite. Where is that time spent?
*Discussion of your objectives and needs with your company/organization liaison
*Pre-assessment of attendees: The company’s liaison will be sent a link to a poll to distribute to the staff who will be involved. Pre-assessment may also include phone interviews.
*Preparation of customized training content: The answers to the aforementioned poll questions will be used do design the curriculum for workshops and one-on-one sessions.
*Handling all of my own travel arrangements (less work for you!)
*Arriving the evening before and participating in a “meet and greet” or dinner with your leadership
*Arriving onsite on the day of the consulting by 7:30 AM to run through sound and screen checks and participate in breakfast activities (meet with the board, leadership, VIPs, special attendees, etc., for a private Q&A)
*Presenting a customized 60- to 90-minute training/workshop from 8:30 – 9:30/10:00 A.M.
*Consulting with individuals after the morning training
*Participating in lunch activities (meet with the board, leadership, VIPs, special attendees, etc., for a private Q&A)
*Facilitating a debriefing session from 3:00 – 3:30 P.M. This will include sharing observations and recommendations based on the day’s intake, as well as a Q&A session to field questions after attendees have had the chance to start implementing what was learned in the morning training.
*A written debrief of observations and recommendations, delivered within two business days following the site visit
*Aftercare: Copies of The Inefficiency Assassin: Time Management Tactics for Working Smarter, Not Longer. Some folks take a little longer to absorb the information and learn it well enough to implement on a daily basis. I would be happy to present follow up workshops and consulting, but this book will help fill in any gaps when I’m not present in your office. In a nutshell, I spend approximately 40 hours on your team for a “one-day” training and consulting combo. Factor all of this in with the solutions delivered to your team, and you’ll discover that I don’t charge enough for the benefits you’ll get!
Are there cheaper alternatives?
Yes. You can hire a training factory for about $1,000. These are companies that offer training for every business topic under the sun. They use standard materials, hire people who know how to speak, and then send these folks into the field to present the canned training. They have no experience developing theories and processes. They have no experience implementing these theories and processes with clients. They can’t assess clients and present customized solutions because they simply present what they’ve memorized. But they sound really good!
What exactly do I teach?
That’s going to depend on your objectives and the needs based on polling your staff. Visit the links below to get an idea of the possibilities: 43 different learning modules (For customized training and consulting, I pick and pull from here to give you solutions for your biggest pain points.) Media interviews (I give this information out for free, so just imagine how much more you’ll get when you’re a paying client!) Sample videos (Same comment as the one for the media interviews!)
What can you do if you want quality, but it’s truly not in your budget?
You can retain me for consulting only, with no prep time before arriving onsite. You can experience distance learning and have the workshop via a webinar. It’s not nearly as smooth as having me there in person (you know, technology glitches and streaming delays), but at least your people will be getting the information. You can license an on-demand webinar library for one year. You and your employees would have 24/7 access to 43 webinars with 10+ hours of video. You can do a book study with your employees. The Inefficiency Assassin: Time Management Tactics for Working Smarter Not Longer contains every piece of information your team needs to gain back lost time. When I present trainings, I’m picking and pulling material from there to customize the learning for your team. With the book, you’ll have all of the information in the palm of your hand.
Where do you go from here?
