BRAIN-BASED TIME MANAGEMENT:
A brand new perspective on GETTING THINGS DONE
In this world of 24/7, we feel compelled to work faster, multitask, and squeeze productivity into every open moment.
Add in the COVID adjustments and by the time the day is done, we’re exhausted and fed up trying to get everything done.
- Do your employees complain about distractions?
- Are they overwhelmed?
- Is it challenging to complete tasks that aren’t “on fire”?
- Can they prioritize effectively – and follow through with their plan?
A few Reviews from spring 2021
“I just wanted to say thanks to the HR training/education team. This was one of the most useful classes I’ve taken. I would highly recommend offering it again in the future for other employees. One of my employees was with me in the class and also had positive feedback.“
“Great class! HR should offer more trainings that are like this.“
“Would love to take more classes from her.“
“I would take the class again, especially if it was in person.”

Mary Ellen is wonderful! She created trainings for us that were relevant, engaging, and applicable, and she is an absolute pleasure to work with. She’s responsive, organized (of course!), flexible, and really committed to doing excellent work. We will absolutely work with Mary Ellen again and can’t recommend her highly enough.

I personally found her science evidence-based approach on how our brain works and how it relates to time management fascinating. My colleagues and myself were engaged throughout the whole session. We were able to go back to work with realistic and effective tools to help better plan and manage our workload. We are already looking forward to the second phase of the time management series next month!

I got a lot out of the class, both for work and home. Mary Ellen clearly explained the class structure so we knew what to expect of the 3 hours class. She explained the complicated topic of brain science in an understandable way, utilized the many styles of learning, visual, auditory and kinesthetic. Included many relatable examples, and offered many different practical and useful tools to try out to help manage your time. I think everyone came away with something they could try!
