“It’s like taking all the productivity books off your shelf and squeezing them into your own personal action plan.”

“The Strategic Margin Workshop is like taking all the productivity books off your shelf and squeezing them into your own personal action plan.

“Never confuse motion with action.” — Benjamin Franklin

This workshop will give you tools to tap into the capability you already possess to gain strategic margin. This is not hyped-up pablum about four-hour work weeks nor is it mystical practices for holistic living. Instead, you’ll receive practical—use it today—know-how based on cognitive science to unleash your creative best for your business and for your personal life.

StrategicPower_300x280You’ll discover how the five elements of strategic power (willpower, delegative power, reciprocity, creative power and structural power) can improve how you think about your business. You’ll work through practical exercises—including how to create space to add new projects without sacrificing your most vital commitments—that you can apply right now.

Following these principles may not make you less busy, but they will help you think more strategically, creatively and less reactively.

What you'll learn

  • Why merely offloading tasks doesn’t create sustainable strategic margin

  • How your proficiency may actually hinder creative and strategic thinking

  • The triggers that most often keep you in reactive, fire-fighting mode

  • Five practices that will enlarge your capacity for strategic and creative thought

  • How to create your unique personal action plan to increase your strategic margin
