“Before I attended the In Control! Workshop, I felt overwhelmed and stressed. My day consisted of putting out fires, things falling through the cracks and not being able to get to important work. Through the In Control! Workshop I was able to develop a system where I make wise choices daily on how to handle emergencies and interruptions and get to the important work. My days now are less stressful and more rewarding.

“As the Dining Service Director working in a senior living facility I found myself struggling with productivity paralysis. I felt trapped, overwhelmed, and unable to accomplish anything. When I learned about the In Control: Personal Productivity Masterclass I jumped at the opportunity to attend. This class taught me how to organize, categorize, and prioritize my work. Since I attended this class, my productivity has improved dramatically. I no longer feel trapped in the day to day tasks and I am working on new and exciting projects. For once I feel like I am swimming rather than barely treading water which is an amazing feeling.
