What Message Are You Communicating?

IMG_1955Recently I was talking with a woman who made the difficult decision to leave her corporate job after 20+ years to begin a consulting business of her own.  She was considering joining our training program to become a Certified Productive Environment Specialist (www.BecomeaSpecialist.com). As I was explaining how our program works, I mentioned that my personal passion is “helping leaders create Productive Environments — intentional settings in which everyone can accomplish their work and enjoy their lives.”  I mentioned that in my experience many leaders (especially entrepreneurs!) have messy offices.  As a result they communicate to their employees that organization is not important, and even worse, fail to empower those employees to implement the very systems that would increase profit, productivity, and peace of mind.  She replied, “You’re absolutely right.  My boss’s office was always a mess, and I often wondered how he could run a business if he couldn’t even organize his own desk!”

That’s the bad news.  The good news!  After 30+ years, I have scores of testimonials from clients who have discovered that if they are willing to invest eight hours of focused attention with one of our consultants to implement The 8-Hour Miracle™, not only can they be a role model for organization, but they can empower their employees to do the same.

What message is your office sending to your employees, your team, your family, the world?  Does your office reflect the quality of products and services you provide?

What is Your Purpose on Earth?

600px-Globe.svgToday I am recording an interview for “Doing What Works” with Maureen Anderson (www.MaureenAnderson.com) about Less Clutter More Life. When I mentioned to her that I believe this book was the reason I was put on this earth, she commented, “That’s probably the best teaser for a show I’ve ever heard, so thanks again!”

I’ve been thinking about that comment, and my hope is that this book will be a catalyst to encourage all the readers to answer the question, “Why was I put on this earth?” When I was first asked the question nearly three decades ago, I had no idea! Through the years, I recognized that the physical and digital clutter with which I constantly struggle was a result of not being able to answer that question. The more physical and digital clutter I eliminated, the clearer my answer became.

My purpose is to help other women discover their purpose, and as a result, to be able to share what they know and learn with others. If you’re looking for your purpose, join us in Carolina Beach for our March 2-3 retreat www.BecomeaSpecialist.com/SOAR-march-retreat.
