30 – 90 minutes
Clare sparks audience action through talks on sustainable performance, becoming more organized and successfully integrating work and life:
THE HIGH-PERFORMANCE WORKPLACE - ENABLING SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTIVITY
With a 2017 Gallup poll revealing that most employees are not engaged or worse, actively disengaged, concerns arise around lost productivity and the high costs of turnover. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Hear what it takes to empower your workforce and make room for them to shine. Ensure everyone in your organization can make their biggest contributions.
THE GREAT LIFE DECLUTTER - SIMPLIFYING FOR SUCCESS
Physical disorganization leads to mental disorganization, draining energy from important tasks, evoking chronic stress and often leading to feelings of failure. This is on top of wasted time, space, money and energy. Good news! There is a simple path towards creating greater order in life. Through real-life examples, be inspired to conquer clutter and step into a more confident, calm, easeful life. Have your team “pay themselves forward” so they can spend more time on things that matter.
FROM TIME MANAGEMENT TO LIFETIME MANAGEMENT™ - STRATEGIES FOR SUCCESSFUL WORK-LIFE INTEGRATION
Do you get excited thinking about time management? Not many people do. Instead, step up and take a bird’s eye view of your life and think about LifeTime Management. We often invest time in a methodical planning process to develop strategic plans at work, but how many of us have a process for regularly planning our own lives? Learn a simple, repeatable process to figure out where you are, where you want to go, and how to develop an action plan that will get you there. Step into being in charge of you!
The engagement starts with a discussion with Clare to explore your key objectives, format, theme and audience so she can tailor the talk for you.
Training & Workshops
Interactive events digging deeper into concepts and practicing their application through exercises, facilitated discussions, group interaction and personal application. A significant step towards changing behaviour.

OVERVIEWS (80 minutes)
From Time Management to LifeTime Management: Strategies for Successful Work-Life Integration
If employees are not clear about their values and purpose, and if these are not aligned with corporate values, engagement at work will likely suffer. In today’s busy lives, it is common to keep responding to the demands of external stimuli and omit pausing to check in with the self to be sure of what is truly desired. If living off course, resentment can build, sometimes slowly over time, which can erode productivity.
"C" stands for Compass in my Productivity CPR™ model for sustainable performance and is about purposefully setting individual direction. After this workshop, attendees will be able to employ a repeatable methodology for self-reflection and intention setting.
Clarity can stimulate either further natural alignment with corporate initiatives resulting in greater engagement, or possibly prompt a pivot. No matter what, you’ll enjoy a workforce with a stronger commitment.
Manage Your Mojo: Mastering Body, Mind and Environment for Optimum Performance
After suffering her own burnout, Arianna Huffington suggests that, “We are not paying people for their stamina, we are paying people for their judgment.” We ought to be paying people for their soundness of judgment to ensure sustainable contributions over time, without fear of burning out. One might think of this as long-term stamina.
The "P" in Productivity CPR™ stands for Performance. In this overview, explore 8 Productivity Table Stakes™, must-haves for ultimate individual performance, in the areas of mind, body, and environment. Leave ready to claim what you require to show up and serve at your best.
Knowing our individual Productivity Table Stakes is one thing. To invite the best performance from our teams, we ought to be creating compassionate work cultures which cultivate, facilitate and celebrate the ability to sustain performance. It starts with respecting the fact we are human animals and that we must take time to care for ourselves. It means accepting that people deserve to have rich, broadly fulfilling, healthy lives.
Cultivate Happy Habits: Unique, Reliable Rituals to Perform at Your Best
Do you think of the word habit and groan, thinking it’s going to be onerous and unpleasant to create? What if we can re-frame the concept of the undesirable habit as an act of honour to help you achieve your intentions? Even the simplest things such as filing papers, sending email, ironing clothes, cleaning the kitchen counter can be full of reverence. If we can look at all of these acts as gifts to ourselves and others, doesn’t that change the perspective?
What’s often challenging is a lack of time, energy or interest. These can all be dealt with using different strategies.
The "R" in Productivity CPR™ stands for Rituals. These are honourable acts which you choose to complete in service of yourself and others. In this overview, we’ll explore the key rituals you need to stay on top of tasks, feel in control of your time, communicate effectively and deliver with less stress. We’ll explore helpful skill sets and tackle tricky saboteurs. You’ll identify strategies you can implement right away to be both more efficient and more effective in your day.
The Great LifeDeClutter: Simplifying for Success
Organization is a foundational element for staying productive. Adding structure to space, time and information helps our brains find what we’re looking for. But everyone’s brain is different, so we may all need to find slightly different ways to work. And, that’s okay.
In this overview, we’ll explore four different organizing types in the Organizing Personalities Matrix™, which will be extremely useful in helping you share your space successfully with coworkers or housemates.
Explore the Four Step P.L.A.N. to Get Organized™, an easy-to-remember model you can count on to help you simplify your life.
You’ll be armed with a new perspective on how different people view organization, and a simple approach to guide you forward.
