Great 2 minute read from PSYBlog!

A study (San Diego Supercomputer Center) said that by 2015 (and we are already 2016!), the sum of media asked for and delivered to consumers on mobile devices and to their homes would take more than 15 hours a day to see or hear. That volume is equal to 6.9 million-million gigabytes. Aagh! And that doesn’t include the information swamp at work.

People are trying to cope with this but without training – knowledge or key skills.

When I’m facilitating workshops one of the most frequent complaints I hear is “I want more time… with my family, to exercise, to lose weight…”. We all know that people too stressed can easily become poor performers – cannot deliver to their best, make more mistakes, are unfocused, unhelpful behaviours and communication.

The cost to the individual, Manager, team and business bottom line is huge yet frequently unseen or acknowledged.

Good news! There are two ready made high quality programmes available to help you and your people, already tried, tested and proven in various forms with many big corporates that work.
