Start 2017 Right – Get Organised and On Top Of Your Work!

Posted: 12th December 2016


Edinburgh based company, Positive People have launched a limited offer for Chamber of Commerce members. This will give 20% discount on workload coaching and team training.

David Longstaff, presenter at the company explains: “this work is not traditional time management but has been designed to help busy professionals be on top of their work, rather than feel buried by it. Most organisations are in a climate of change and doing more with less. Busy executives are finding their workload is increasing in volume and complexity, so methods and systems that used to work fine previously, now need refining. That’s where we come in.”

Themes are:

  • Employees spend their day swamped in email
  • Work encroaches on personal life
  • To-do lists feel depressing
  • Few get their inboxes back to empty
  • Many use organisational tools (Outlook, OneNote etc.) but know they can do more

Our group events allow entire teams to use the same language and systems to improve productivity and reduce workload stress.

Coaching offer for Edinburgh based members

While our coaching is provided throughout the UK (often via Skype) for any Edinburgh-based members, we offer face-to-face coaching at no extra charge.

Please note these offers are limited to bookings made by 7th January 2017.  To get the discount, quote “Chamber2017” in the booking form or when making contact.
