5 Choices to Extraordinary Productivity
COST: $289- Intended Audience: General. The 5 Choices program is an engaging productivity program offered by FranklinCovey, the same company that gives us the world-famous Seven Habits of Highly Effective People program. The two-day 5 Choices seminar is an interactive workshop that will introduce participants to five key choices that if made consistently, will render dramatic results in productivity and achievement! Today’s culture experiences a barrage of information from multiple sources such as texts, email, and social media. Combined with the demands of our careers and life, we are consistently overwhelmed and distracted. The volume of information threatens our ability to think clearly and make wise decisions about the best way to spend our time and resources. If we react to these stimuli without clear discernment, we are unable to accomplish the goals that matter most in our professional and personal lives. The 5 Choices seminar provides a solution that inspires participants to apply a five-step process that will dramatically increase their ability to achieve life’s most important goals. Supported by research and years of experience, this solution not only produces a measurable increase in productivity, but also provides a renewed sense of engagement and accomplishment. Participants will receive the following FranklinCovey materials: • Participant guidebook • Access to assessments and instructions to apply content to smartphones, tablets, and web-based applications via the 5 Choices website • Technical guide with instructions on how to maximize use of Microsoft ®Outlook®, Lotus Notes ®, Google Apps ®, and more; • Take-home tools DVD • The 5 Choices monograph • Three bonus modules entitled “Wildly Important Goals”, “Office Nirvana”, and “Brain-Care Basics.” Certified FranklinCovey facilitator Johanna Owenby will be your guide through this engaging, timely seminar. Reserve your seat today! Cancellations for this seminar must be made 10 business days before the first date of the seminar.
