This course is ideal for you if you have:

  • Too much to do and not enough time to do it
  • Shifting priorities that prevent you from getting things done
  • Many projects in progress, not enough getting done
  • Frequent interruptions or lots of time wasted on inefficiency

What you can expect from the Personal Agility System?

What really matters? Personal Agility is a simple coaching and leadership framework to help you get things done, deliver on commitments, and be effective at managing stakeholders.

Personal Agility is like a GPS Navigator for your life or project. You can figure out where you are, where you are going, and adjust your course to achieve your goals or become who you want to be!

This workshop will get you started with Personal Agility. After this workshop, you can get off of the treadmill and into the driver’s seat!

Frequently Asked Questions

Remote Participation

Q: What tools or accounts are required for online participation?

A: Our conferencing system is Zoom.us (client required). The session is recorded. This service is free but may require registration.

Q: Can I participate when I am traveling?

A: It is a full day class and you must participate for the entire class. I recommend a quiet, private space where you can talk in confidence and focus on the session. A reliable connection is essential. Trains and planes generally do not satisfy any of these expectations. If your hotel Internet is good enough, there is no reason not to participate from there.
