Juggling elephants - Success Without Getting Squashed!

Feel like the circus is running you instead of you running your circus? Seem like the performers in your circus are less than enthusiastic about being a part of your lineup? If so, it's time for you to stop juggling elephants. In this humorous and thought-provoking message, we offer a unique perspective on the struggle to "get it all done," and some of the less-obvious reasons behind this universal problem.

Key takeaways include:

  • Realizing the fallacy of trying to get it all done
  • Following a process to accomplish your most critical tasks and ideas
  • Taking more conscious control of your time and energy
  • Discover ways to sustain productivity and execute a plan for continuous improvement


Getting Your Most Important Things Done!


Training based on Juggling Elephants follows a 6 step process to equip participants to get their most important things done both at work and in life. The six steps are:

  • Stop Trying To Juggle Elephants
  • Be The Ringmaster
  • Create The Lineup
  • Work With The Performers
  • Take An Intermission
  • Plan For The Next Performance

To receive a more detailed description of each step and the benefits to the people in your organization, contact us.

Training programs are customized to the length of time available – whether a 90 minute breakout session or up to a full-day training program. While the shorter training programs deliver strategies, insights and applications for each module, the full-day training is a deeper cut, allowing more time for application exercises and additional learning. We work with you to design a program that best meets your needs, adding additional content where needed and spending less time on areas not as critical to your people.
