Keynote Topics

Get Work Done Without Killing Your People

As a leader or manager, you request projects and outcomes; but what comes back is surprisingly not what you intended. Your team is clear as to who is responsible for what but they feel an unbalanced workload. Your people use lists to get tasks done but the distinction between a project list and a task list has people wasting time. And imagine another year goes by with things moving as they are, is that good enough?

Execution is not what you think. The key to effective execution lies in the preparation. The more energy and focus you put into the intended outcomes, allocation of resources and gaining of commitment, the faster and successfully any project will come to fruition.

This program is strategically designed to anchor the 8 simple, clear and implementable steps that take the uncertainty out of getting projects done, keeping everyone engaged and energized, and moving companies agendas forward.

*(This keynote / masterclass may be titled to reflect the theme of your conference/ meeting.)


  • Attendees will get the “EX tool” that will insure everyone knows the when, where, why and who is responsible for any part of any project.
  • Through this powerful decision-making tool, audience members will leave knowing which projects are important for moving the business forward profitably and productively, and which are just busy-work.
  • Learn how effectively completing one project before beginning another can help retain and keep the best employees.
  • Carolyn is a certified WORKING GENIUS facilitator, and she can bring this powerful productivity assessment tool to this program.

Most leaders and managers spend their hours at work reacting to demands and requests on their time and attention. Yet there are projects and deadlines that require them to be pro-active. How do you structure your time and priorities to effectively manage your responsibilities? This entertaining and informative session addresses breakdowns around interruptions, communication failures and boundaries, and creates opportunities to optimize time and relationships. After 15 years of delivering this program, all of the content in this program is applicable and practical and will be tailored specifically to the needs of the organization.

*(This keynote /masterclass may be titled to reflect the theme of your conference/ meeting.)


  • Attendees will get a visual representation of exactly where they are spending their time

  • Learn a tool that increases productivity and leads to higher DPMs (Dollars per Minute)

  • Tested methods of responding to requests and demands will be explored

Human beings instinctively make judgements about others based on how they look. Does the first impression you make match what you want others to see, think or know about you? Incongruence or disconnect because of your appearance are obstacles easily overcome with the right guidance.
