What's KEEPING you
This workshop was very helpful. I was able to objectively consider my choices and the resulting reality in my life. I now have the ingredients and structure to be all that I can be.
The Retirement Asset Management Group
This workshop gave me the space I needed to think about what I want to accomplish for my firm. The framework we used gave me concrete steps without feeling overwhelming. And I now have a personal action plan with specific strategies to guard my margin and lead more like I want to.
The Bailey Group
This is like taking all the productivity books off your shelf and squeezing them into your own personal action plan. The ‘Margineering’ tool helped me clearly identify the behavior changes I can make to get more margin. That alone was worth the price of admission.
This workshop provided an excellent structure to see how to be more intentional, to have a roadmap, to be more powerful, and to gain more margin.
This workshop was full of real actionable meat. I walked away with four things that will change my life. Fantastic use of time.
I highly recommend this workshop! The relaxed style and the comfortable environment that Leary creates make it easy to get involved to get the very most benefit from the time. The materials are created in such a way that you will have no problem identifying areas where you can strategically increase your margin and also, what triggers you into reactive leadership. Then, if that wasn't enough, Leary gives you the framework to create an action plan to implement those changes.
A day well spent. Leary does a great job of weaving together psychological research, years of management consulting and richly meaningful stories of his own struggles to guide us through an exploration of what it takes to create the margin that we need in order to be more strategic leaders.
It is so important to find time to think, act, reflect, and focus on priorities that will make the biggest difference for an organization. This workshop provided several tools to help me be more effective and efficient.
As a Fortune 100 sales exec, I'm buried in the day-to-day and have difficulty creating margin. Leary gave me a number of strategies and tactics to change that.
Such a fun and engaging experience. It was very well put together and it taught me to think smarter and more strategic about how I invest my time. I know the exact changes I need to make to pursue my most important goals.
Just what I needed to force me to re-evaluate my structure, habits, thoughts, schedule, work/life balance. I look forward to re-engineering my life!
Trott Brook Financial
Helped me to better assess myself--the good habits from bad habits and how to identify changes to make that benefit me and my organization.
Really enjoyed the opportunity to reflect on personal development and foundational improvements that can be made to make a greater impact.
