2019 Training

This is a 2-day practical workshop to better manage your energy, not time!
From the Harvard Business Review’s “Manage Your Energy, Not Your Time” article: The core problem with working longer hours is that time is a finite resource.  Energy is a different story. Defined in physics as the capacity to work, energy comes from four main wellsprings in human beings: the body, emotions, mind, and spirit. In each, energy can be systematically expanded and regularly renewed by establishing specific rituals—behaviors that are intentionally practiced and precisely scheduled, with the goal of making them unconscious and automatic as quickly as possible.”  

In this practical two-day workshop, we will cover human energy management using the Karate Project Management Guide book written by the facilitator himself.
