Change, what’s really getting in the way of you moving forward?  Dealing with ambiguity and the “in between.” Change has never been this painless!


  1. Clutter, Chaos and Clarity, how we sabotage our success with every type of clutter. And how to get down to what you really want and become more accountable.

  2. Fatigue, tools to re-energize and re-engage yourself and your teams.  What resilient living looks like and how to model it.

  3. “Can I give you some feedback?”  Coaching and communication with humility and authenticity.

  4. Leading with Values or don’t lead at all.

  5. Choose a slice of the planet.  Giving Back, It’s good for you and your business. Believe me your customers are noticing…

  6. Laughter, this may be the best laugh you have had in a long time.  Why you simply must have more fun at work.


 

We’re all just so “BUSY” these days. “Slammed.” “Buried,” in fact. Desperately trying to “keep our heads above water.” “Up to my ass in alligators.” While all of these are common responses to “How are you?” Oh, and if you don’t want to say any of the above, “fine,” is usually the runner-up response. It’s a constant exchange, even a one-up attempt of just how much we have on our plates when we communicate to others about our work and home lives.

Breaking Busy – Why busyness, our new norm, is making us sick, depleting our energy and literally causing accidents in our workplaces and our homes.

In Linda’s presentation you will learn:


  1. What got us here?

  2. What busy is doing to us.

  3. How we can strategically step off the Busy Treadmill.

  4. Laughter, this may be the best laugh you have had in a long time.

BREAKING BUSY | Finding Peace in the Chaos - Book

“Honestly, how are you doing?” Would your answer be “fine” and the conversation ends there? Based on “Busy Audit” research, Breaking Busy sorts through the effects that just being “fine” is having on us, and why if we’re not saying we’re “fine,” we’re “BUSY!” (the second most common, and I believe the more important, response to how we’re doing). If the sentiment “Holy crap I’m BUSY!” strikes a chord, then this book is for you. Our Busyness has become an epidemic. Have you ever wondered how in a single generation, we have become helicopter parents, taxi drivers, professional party planners and fundraisers? Not to mention being fulltime employees and part time business owners on the side? We’ve forgotten how to fuel that  part of ourselves and our lives that really matter, as we HOVER through our days. What is it that has caused us to “lose that lovin’ feeling?” It’s time to rediscover our happiness and what we REALLY WANT in life. It’s time to say, “You know what guys, it doesn’t get any better than this!” Join me in Breaking Busy, as we dive into: How did we get so Busy? What being Busy is doing to us? How to step off the BUSY Treadmill and Find Peace in the Chaos.
