You’re busy. You are already feeling overloaded. You’d like to build greater capacity in the members of your team, but where would you find the time? In short, you want to take your leadership to the next level, but the question is “How?” You need a fresh and practical blueprint. Jones Loflin says that new approach is built on four words: Grow, Cultivate, Prune, and Harvest.

In this innovative and engaging presentation built on timeless principles, Jones equips leaders to identify where change is needed in their daily activities and take productive action. It’s time to get “growing” and harvest something better for your people and your organization.

This program is perfect for:

  • Emerging leaders
  • Senior leaders

  • Leaders leading in a time of change

  • Understand how to create the environment for their team that delivers their best work.
  • Learn the three specific areas they need to address daily as a leader or manager.
  • Explore what is limiting their success as a leader and what’s holding their team members back.

Stop Juggling Elephants and Start Being The Ringmaster Of Your Circus!

See if this sounds familiar. Too much to do and too little time. Feeling overwhelmed with non-stop stress. This dilemma is not only negatively affecting your performance, but your lack of time to lead and manage effectively is limiting the productivity of others. And you have zero time to nurture your own personal well-being! If you’re tired of feeling like you’re juggling elephants, Jones Loflin has a fresh solution for you… run off and join the circus to improve your work-life satisfaction!

In this powerfully practical presentation, Jones offers 5 simple strategies to begin getting your most important things done more often. Using the analogy of a successful circus, expect to learn how to more effectively manage your own workload and develop routines that provide for your personal wellness and richer relationships. When Jones is done, you’ll be equipped to get more standing ovations from everyone… including yourself!

Key objectives of the presentation include:

  • Recognizing the fallacy of trying to “get it all done”.
  • Learning how to take more conscious control of your time and energy.
  • Following a 4 step process to experience greater productivity and results.
  • Identifying key distractions and interruptions limiting your productivity-and how to better manage them.
  • Leveraging the insights from 3 circus acts to more fully engage the energy of others to help you accomplish your highest priorities.
  • Creating a plan to increase the focus on your own personal well-being and lower your stress.

Strategies are based on Jones’ award-winning book, Juggling Elephants.

Your Days Need To Be Full Of “It!”

How busy are you? In the daily struggle to get it all done, what are you forgetting? Is your mind constantly racing with lists of all the things you could and should be doing? Does your day often feel like you are treading water in an ocean of rushes and deadlines, trying to keep from drowning while handling increasing work demands? If so, it’s time for you to get to IT-your most “Important Thing.” Define IT. Focus on IT. Even get excited about IT.

In today’s presentation, Jones Loflin, co-author of Getting to It, provides the necessary tools for you to accomplish the important, handle the urgent, and get rid of the unnecessary. Want to have the room to explore new opportunities and achieve better results? Jones says, “Let’s make IT happen!”

Now We Go Home… So What?

You have packed the bottles of shampoo and lotion from your room, taken one last gaze out your hotel window, and started thinking about how far behind you are at work. But have you “packed” the right strategies to achieve better results when you return home? How will you take all you have gained at this event and implement these ideas into an already overloaded schedule? Jones Loflin says the answer lies in 5 simple words: Who, What, Where, When, and Why.

This program can also be modified to fit for the opening session of a conference or event. The suggested title then becomes We Are Here… Now What?

Connecting Workaholics, Whiners, and Slackers On Matters Of Productivity

While much time has been spent on how to create a diverse workplace, little attention is often given to how work can best get done with so many different backgrounds and perspectives in an organization. Failing to address these differences only serves to limit individual productivity and diminish the ability of diverse teams to work cohesively and get the best results.

In this powerfully practical presentation, you will discover how to bridge the productivity gap between different populations in the workplace to ensure that both individuals and the organization are accomplishing what is most important.

How To Talk Your Way To A Stronger Team

In today’s technology-driven, fast-paced work environments, it’s so easy to forget the human element that is the key to building cohesive teams. We’ve become so busy trying to get work done that we sometimes neglect to invest time in fostering healthy work environments that help each team member deliver their best work.  Our ability and willingness to listen is limited, we take a “one size fits all” approach to communication, and we rarely think about how to build a higher degree of trust with others using our words

In this program, you will explore the significant impact your personality can have on how you communicate with others.  Learn what it means to be an “aggressive listener,” hearing both the content AND intent of the words spoken by others. You’ll also discover the negative power of “trigger words” and how to reduce them in conversations with team members. Expect to gain fresh insights on how to motivate individuals across all generations with your words. Most importantly, you will leave better equipped to express your own thoughts with greater clarity, confidence, and competence to those around you.

Any of Jones Loflin’s programs can be customized to fit your specific needs.
