This You? Who SWS Serves
Smart WorkLife Solutions (SWS) serves a diverse population of individuals. Clients include business leaders, executives, middle managers, consultants, doctors, nurses, therapists, law enforcement, account executives, writers, stay-at-home entrepreneurs, new college grads, stay-at-home moms, empty nesters, retirees and more.
SWS clients are smart, committed to personal excellence and they are experts within their own area of pursuit. The expertise they lack is the ability to eliminate clutter, simplify routines, and/or manage some area of their life to get the results they want.
My clients have shared the following situations . . . do any of them fit you?
- You have a room
out of control with clutter. There are piles of papers,
knick-knacks, old clothes, and/or excess furniture.
Embarrassed, you close the door when friends and family
- You waste time looking
for files, important documents and other items. You look
for materials and they’re not where you thought
you left them. They’re not in the file and not
in the stack of papers on your desk. You hope someone
else might have a copy, right?
- You don’t have enough
storage or space to work in your office. You’ve
tried putting things in order but you get stuck trying
to decide what to keep and what to eliminate.
- Your assistant is
gone and now you’re lost. You relied on a helper to take
messages, do filing, answer e-mails, and keep things
in order…now he/she is gone. You have no clue
how to find anything, much less do your work and his/hers.
- You’re incredibly
busy and hard working but not as effective as you could
be. You get sidetracked with e-mail and phone calls,
react to endless interruptions, and rush from one meeting
to the next. At the end of the day, you’re mentally
and physically exhausted and the priorities that needed
your attention aren’t completed.
- You’ve been accumulating
things for years and now you’re faced with downsizing
to a smaller space. You feel overwhelmed trying to
sort through decades of memories and decide what to
take to your new place.
- Your life is chaotic. You
take care of a home and family. You hold down a job.
You worry and feel anxious no matter what you’re
doing. You have no time for yourself. Nothing is working
the way you want and you’re stressed!
- You are in a career
transition. You know there are self-help tools available on-line
and in bookstores but you want personal feedback and
support in your job search. You want help with your
resume, preparing for interviews and/or negotiating
a good salary. You could go it alone but you don’t
Are You Likely To Be Successful
Using The SWS Approach?
My clients typically share many of the following characteristics. If these fit you as well, you are likely someone I can help:
- You know you have
a problem. In the
words of Dr. Phil, “You got to face it
to replace it.” You accept responsibility for
the way things are working . . . and you acknowledge
they are not working very well.
- You consider your
problem a priority. No more procrastinating. Eliminating the
problem is high on your list of things you want to
- You are motivated
to make changes. It’s one thing to want something; it’s
another to do whatever it takes to get the thing you
want. You are ready to devote your time and energy
to get rid of the issue. You have no doubt you can
accomplish whatever you want with the right support.
- You are willing
to experiment with new ideas and try new things. You like learning
new things, especially those that can make a big difference
in your life. You’re ready and open to try new
approaches to old behaviors.
- You view organizing
and/or coaching as an investment in your future and
quality of life. You’ve figured out the problem you’re
putting up with doesn’t have to be a life sentence
and the cost to remedy it will be well worth the peace
of mind and dramatic, positive changes you will experience.
You know you are the benefactor of this process.
- You are committed
to long term maintenance. Your intention is to make serious
changes in the way you approach your work and/or life.
Once you implement the solutions you’re not about
to backslide and let your hard work go to waste. You
will continue to practice new behaviors long after
our work together is completed.
If you fit the
profile above, you can be successful organizing your office,
your home, and/or your life. Next, learn more about how Smart
WorkLife Solutions works.
