Networking and relationship building are undoubtedly the most effective means to get a job, promote your brand, or help someone find opportunity.

The 10T’s Of Time Management: How to Use Time as a Strategic Partner!

Time Out! Have you ever wondered why some people get so much done and why you may be struggling to cross one thing off your to-do list? Time management is a critical driver of success and accomplishment. When you look at time as something you need, you will use it as something you value. However if you let time “happen,” it too will pass you by leaving you with a question of “what happened?”  The 10Ts of Time Management covers ten effective principles to help organizations increase workforce productivity and individuals to increase their ability to get things done.  In this workshop, Mobray offers the philosophy that if you can convert passive time to active value, you will develop habits that give you more energy and create greater outcomes. The principles are practical, actionable and designed to drive immediate results. 

The 10I’s of Innovation: How to Think on Your Feet and Generate Ideas That Win!

In today's fast paced environment organizations are looking to get the most out of their people while providing a challenging environment that promotes growth, mobility, and learning. All too often however, leaders and employees see a drop in their productivity because of the nature of how work gets done and the need to “put out fires” in being responsive to complete multiple tasks. When leaders create a culture that rewards new ideas and fresh approaches to problem solving, they create "signature moments” that elevate the performance of their teams and increase employee satisfaction. This workshop is designed to help professionals increase the time and processes that drive innovation and growth in meeting strategic business objectives. Highly interactive, the workshop incorporates brainstorming exercises, benchmarking and improvisation techniques to help attendees bring innovation to their roles and unexpected value to their clients.
