Work Smarter, Not Harder

Work Smarter, Not Harder

Overwhelmed? Stressed out? Frazzled? Life today is busy! We tell ourselves that if only we could make better use of our downtime (read email in the elevator? At a stoplight? In line for coffee?) or multitask more cleverly (I can do this conference call and walk the dog and pick up the laundry,) we’d get ahead of the busyness. As we work harder and harder, we invest more hours and energy fighting a losing battle. Something has to give. It is time to stop applying a one size fits all approach to overcoming our busyness. It is time to get personal about our productivity.

In this self-paced online course, productivity expert and coach Carson Tate will help you to identify your Productivity Style and learn how to:

  • Invest your time wisely so you can work fewer hours and have more time and energy for the people and projects that are important to you.
  • Redesign your to-do list so you can get more done and complete your tasks and projects with ease.
  • Build a personalized productivity system that actually works for you.

WORK WELL WITH OTHERS

WORK WELL WITH OTHERS

Working with a team can be one of the great joys in life. But it can also be one of the biggest sources of frustration. Is there a colleague in your office, a member of your volunteer committee, or a parent on your child’s sports team who makes you want to pull your hair out in frustration? The reason we find other people so challenging to work with is usually very simple: when your work style, or what I call Productivity Style, and the work style of others clash, the misunderstandings and tension that result can prevent you from completing your best work. It is time to work well with everyone.

In this self-paced online course, productivity expert and coach Carson Tate will help you to identify your Productivity Style and learn how to:

  • Identify the Productivity Style of your colleagues, significant others and friends so you can understand how they work and the impact their Productivity Style has on your ability to work well together.
  • Leverage your colleague’s Productivity Style strengths so you can enhance your ability to collaborate and work well together.
  • Minimize your colleague’s potential Productivity Style blind spots so you can eliminate interpersonal and team conflict and keep your projects on track.
  • Communicate to be heard and understood so you can effectively and efficiently achieve team goals and promote an engaged, collaborative team culture.
  • Delegate effectively so you can harness the productive power of your teammates and complete projects with ease.

RECLAIMING LIVESCLIENT STORIES

Senior Vice President | Carolinas HealthCare System
Martha Whitecotton
I was missing emails, important information, deadlines - material critical to the way in which I did my job and managed my team.
MY STORY
Carson Tate is down-to-Earth and authentic; she’s good at what she does, and she’s fun to work with. Her solutions – powerful, practical, and possible.

Before I started working with Carson, I felt a lot of anxiety – I was missing emails, important information, deadlines – material critical to the way in which I did my job and managed my team.

Together, we carved out baby steps that were part of a larger solution, or transformation, in my productivity. Baby steps like utilizing an email’s subject line properly and creating an email filing system that made sense for not only me, but also my assistant. Carson even spent time with my assistant teaching her how to use the new system in order to support me and my role.

Since working with Carson, the greatest effect I’ve felt personally is less stress, less anxiety. The calm that comes from knowing the important information is there and organized – and my assistant and I both know how to access it – is priceless. An equally important result has been my ability to reclaim control over my time and my productivity.

Carson is good at pushing you outside your comfort zone – but never farther than you can go or want to handle. When you allow her to create a solution for you, what becomes even more possible is a new peace and calm that will transform your life.
Wells Fargo
Lisa Decarlo
In our business, we work fast and are juggling many priorities – and we needed someone who understood that.
MY STORY
While planning the global webcast for Wells Fargo Wholesale Women’s Network, we were searching for a presenter who would engage a webcast audience pulling from all over the world, deliver a message that resonated immediately, and provide us with tangible and real information as well as clear, action steps. In our business, we work fast and are juggling many priorities – and we needed someone who understood that. Carson Tate was our perfect fit. Her presentation was engaging; her stories were relevant; her energy was infectious. Because she understood the corporate culture and lifestyle, she designed her content so that it struck a chord with a lot of different people in the Wells Fargo organization – from junior analysts to senior executives. (That’s hard to do.) She provided not only good, strategic productivity tips to help manage our respective lives, but also the action steps to take on our own productivity to create new value at work.
Director of Talent Management | Belk
Judy Bamping
From there, she asks the right questions to get to an outcome-based solution quickly. As a result, our teams are using their productivity tools with a stronger impact.
MY STORY
I met Carson about six or seven years ago. I was impressed with her immediately – she grabs your attention; she brings topics to life. I not only enjoyed her spark and ability to connect, but also her broad range of productivity strategies that I knew she could bring to the Belk community. Having working with her in two different contexts at Belk – The Leadership Program for High Potential Employees and Human Resources’ Development Days programming – I’ve experienced her strong, consistent approach that’s anchored in her natural ability to listen to our struggles – and also hear what we’re not saying.

From there, she asks the right questions to get to an outcome-based solution quickly. As a result, our teams are using their productivity tools with a stronger impact. Personally, I am using Microsoft Outlook more efficiently and utilizing Carson’s strategies to be more disciplined in my productivity routine, turn off email notifications, and write new rules that allows me to focus more on my impact. Carson understands the context of our environment, our culture, and our people. So much so, that she stays in touch with me and continually offers to us fresh ways to stay efficient.

With Carson, I have a deep, valuable knowledge set, but, more importantly, a partner in my success.

BOOKS BY CARSON TATE

Many of us try popular productivity solutions and tools only to find ourselves falling further behind and more frustrated than ever. We end up spending more time managing our calendars and to-do lists than doing actual work.

Productivity expert and coach Carson Tate says that’s because our brains often don’t work the way the experts assume. She has helped thousands of men and women become better at time management and productivity by using a unique assessment tool that helps people discover their individual productivity styles.

In Work Simply, she explains the four major styles – Prioritizer, Planner, Arranger and Visualizer – and offers invaluable tactics for leveraging your personal style instead of fighting it. She makes it much easier to manage your attention span, get more done, tame your inbox, set and reach goals and much more. She also coaches on how understanding the different styles can improve workplace relationships with bosses, colleagues, and employees. For instance, you’ll find out why it’s more effective to e-mail a Planner, but deliver the same message in person to an Arranger.
