Our Mission: Helping Consultants to Successfully Develop and Grow Their Businesses and Effectively Serve Their Clients
Effective Time Management - The Power of Focus
Are you stressed by having too much to do and not enough time to do it? Would you like to be more effective in your work, reduce the stress of over-commitment, and achieve greater balance in your work and your personal life?
As consultants, we help our clients survive, thrive and lead more successful lives … but often we face challenges in managing our own time successfully. In this presentation you will learn how to identify and understand your specific time management challenges, how to focus your time and attention on your highest priority activities while still handling your lower priority tasks appropriately, and how taking five key steps can reduce the time-wasters in your life and deal with your most common time management problems.
Maryann Murphy is a professional organizer, speaker, and time management consultant who has spent over 25 years helping people learn new skills and be more organized. She holds a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, a Master’s Degree in Social Work (MSW), and a certificate as Specialist in Chronic Disorganization from the Institute for Challenging Disorganization. A former psychotherapist, Maryann has also worked in business and government, and so is able to speak to the challenges of organizing both time and space in a variety of settings.
Maryann has appeared on television and radio, and spoken to small groups, large rallies, and everything in between, helping people manage their time as well as their living and work spaces. She is an active member of the Town of Mashpee Task Force on Hoarding, and has appeared on the TLC TV show, “Hoarding: Buried Alive”.
Participant Feedback On Our Meetings:
"I went to my first meeting of the SPC last night, and came away very impressed! Not only did I get great advice on my brand-new consulting business, but the panel presentation was an excellent discussion on the Massachusetts economy past, present and future. The panelists were extremely knowledgeable, informative, and provided useful information to me both as a general citizen and for my budding consultancy. I look forward to participating in such productive events in the future".
