Priority Management System

Chances are your company has a Performance Management System, including written vision, values, mission, goals, etc.  This helps guide decisions and efforts toward a common “preferred future”.  But the system breaks down when individual people are managing their work from the “heap system? If you (or others on your team) are using the “heap system”, more than likely you are putting out fires and reacting to the latest interruptions, rather than focusing on the activities that link to the team goals. Our Priority Management System will give you the tools and processes to control your work more effectively and efficiently.

The solution is to help managers and individual contributors develop a system for managing work – from a clear desk, one-thing at a time, first things first. 

Priority Management System

Our online program will help improve productivity 1-hour per day, feel in better control of a heavy workload, and help you reduce stress caused by too much to do and not enough time.

Creating a Priority Management System for Managing Individual Work

A system is a set of tools and habits that will focus attention on key activities … moving you more quickly toward your goals.

Managing Your Calendar

Not just for managing meetings, your calendar is a visual that will help you say “NO”.

Managing Tasks

“Date-Activating” tasks is key to following through on promises and commitments, and goal-related activities. Also helps suppress procrastination.

Clearing the Clutter

Messy desk is a messy mind.  Sames goes for 400 email in your Inbox.  Silent distractions from clutter promotes fire-fighting and key activity suppression.

Managing Goals

Having goals focuses attention on key tasks, and highlights lower value tasks for elimination or postponement.

Weekly/Daily Planning

10-minute routines will help you protect time for key tasks – weekly and daily.


Even with a plan, you will need to make decisions as new opportunities and distractions appear. Having a plan will help you choose when to pivot, and when to stay the course.
