* GET THE EDGE: Leadership and Productivity Training for IT Professionals.
Guide your organization and train your engineers to communicate and lead with stress-free productivity.
Why do some IT professionals succeed at levels beyond their imagination, while othersstruggle? The Information Technology industry is constantly changing with new technologies coming every day; wouldn’t you want your engineers to adapt to the changes sooner than later? Wouldn’t it be nice to retain your best engineers by teaching them the art of stress-free productivity, rather than painfully replacing them when they can’t keep up with changes? Are your engineers negative and unsupportive of your innovative projects?Do you feel that your engineers are not taking ownership and leadership for the projects and actions they oversee? Do engineers often tell you they don’t have enough time for the most important projects that you want them to work on? But, you and I know that the truth is, there is one thing that all engineers have in common: time. Lack of time isn’t really the issue—there are professionals in your organization who can accomplish more in one week what others can in one month. It’s how they think about and strategize their time that makes the difference. And, no matter where your average engineers are today in terms of productivity, you can choose to help them achieve more. Like your best engineers, Ruble Chandy had huge dreams about what he wanted to do as an engineer himself, and he was committed to turning those dreams into reality. However, it seemed that the more success he had, the more demanding his life became as well. On the top of that, technology revolutionized the way we live our lives. Most of us have smart phones, tablets and laptops, in addition to our PCs. We have several email addresses that we need to monitor and respond to. We all have at least 1-3 social media accounts that overload us with information, whether we want it or not. Ruble was overwhelmed by the number of roles he needed to play and the sizeable amount of information that he needed to manage and act upon. So, he began to research a variety of time management tools and systems, reading more than 100 books on time management. However, for years, nothing he found really worked for him—they were all based on the premise of a “to-do” list or organizing “a project”. He kept on switching from one productivity system to another one only months later. (Sound familiar to you?) Nothing worked as efficiently as he wanted. That’s when he realized that we all needed a new framework—one that could remind us to focus our energy on what is most important.
