The Great Headcount Unlock: Expand the Power of Your Team for a Fraction of the Cost

The American worker needs a witness. Two and a half years ago, there was a crisis. Like most good people do in a crisis, they dug in. Then, the sprint they signed up for changed. The race became a marathon in duration yet maintained the intensity of that sprint formonths and eventually years. Read More >

Now, as burnout has become latent and ingrained—where employees’ tanks are empty, the fumes are faint—it’s time for a recession-wary lockdown on headcount and resources. It’s no wonder people are quitting and disengaged; leaders are sandwiched between the teams they love and the goals they’re given.

The solution is to aggressively increase team prioritization skills; learn models and formulas for eliminating projects that don’t have direct benefits; and reduce wasteful work, emails, and meetings so that 10 workers can go back to doing the work of 10. In this session jam packed with tools, techniques, and usable frameworks, Juliet will show you how.

  • Adopt the powerful tool of the Reductive Mindset
  • De-crapify your workflow by reducing emails and meetings
  • Reallocate expensive talent time to high-value work
  • Learn models and techniques that keep quality work out in front

Feed The Fire: How Taking a Minute to Think Changes The Nature of Work

Today’s global workforce is so fried that it belongs in the food court of a county fair, and 3:00 a.m. insomnia provides the day’s only unscheduled time to think. What we need in our lives is the missing element of white space—short periods of open, unscheduled time that, when recaptured, change the very nature of work. White space is the stepping back, the strategic pause, and the oxygen that allow the sparks of our efforts to catch fire. It’s yours to reclaim, and this session based on Juliet Funt’s popular book A Minute to Think will show you how.
