    Leverage Creates Results!

    in Business

    Productivity is where efficient and effective meet. Winning Strategies build upon a Championship Psychology to create leverage. Leverage is the multiplier effect. It is where we achieve dramatic growth. Leverage is what allows you to achieve more than your working hours allow. It is working smarter. Clearly leverage is different for an entrepreneur in a service business in comparison to an employee or professional in a large organization. Would you like to know how? On this show we will talk about how to create that leverage to take your business to new heights of success. We will talk about the approach, the sequence of events necessary to make this happen as well as the basic questions that open up the pathways for dramatic success and satisfaction.

    Planning to Plan

    in Business

    Strategies take our vision and create an approach that will enable us to realize that vision. A strategy is a way to create value and leverage to achieve out outcome faster with less effort. When we think of HOW we do something we understand that there is a sequence no matter if it is about baking a cake, building a house or making a sale. Things have to be done in a particular order to achieve the best desired results. A critical component of getting the results we want is planning. There are different levels of planning effecting the different levels of productivity. On this program we will talk about the various levels of planning, the frequency one should plan and how to overcome some of the biggest challenges around planning.

    Get It Together and Succeed!

    in Business

    If I've said it once, I've said it a hundred times: The number one thing you can do to blast your productivity and sucess to the next level is to have a Championship Psychology! I have worked with hundreds of extremely sucessful business leaders and entrepreneurs and in almost every case the only thing between them, and the results they knew they were capable of was themselves. We can be our own greatest support, or our own greatest enemies. This week I am joined by Karyn Beach to talk about her work motivating women to "get it together" and live the lives that they deserve.

    Karyn Beach is the founder of Get It Together Girl Media, and is a game show winner, a produced screenwriter, author, and radio host. After losing her mom at the age of 15, she learned that tomorrow isn't guaranteed and focused on living her life to the fullest. Detirmined not to wait for the perfect job or perfect man to be dropped in front of her, she took charge. Karyn is passionate about educating women the world over about the importance of now, why multitasking doesn’t work, the power of 15 minutes, saying ‘No’ gracefully, and why self-care isn’t selfish.

    Competition vs Collaboration

    in Business

    This week we are talking about Winning Strategies, which is the second blade of my windmill.  Working smarter, not harder, is how you take your business to a new level. Winning Strategy helps you to become the owner of your business and get out of the role of operator. As an operator, you are easily lost in the day-to-day responsibilities, and are not able to provide strategic direction and positioning for your business. My Quantum Productivity Program reveals the best practices behind three elements that make up Winning Strategies, Planning, Process and Priority.

    We will rerun this amazing interview with the founder of CEO Space, Berny Dohrmann to discuss the power of collaboration and the pitfalls of competition.
