BOP 6. Understanding chronological and compass time management principles.

How we manage our time is one of, if not the most critical and important aspect of our life. If we are just spinning wheels and getting no traction, then we are wasting our time and life. Time is the one commodity we can’t get back so making the most of each day is essential. Chronological management means ‘minutes matter’ and our months are planned with purpose. Compass management means we know where we are going and why. There is no benefit in being the richest person in the cemetery or rich enough to afford your own divorce. If we plan a life we want to live in we will love living life! Chronological and Compass time management is Critical.


Duration 1.5 hours 

We also run this in group session throughout the year for $55.00

BOP 7. Engaged Learning Styles. Understanding your Conflict Resolutions Styles

Many times people will teach subordinates from their learning style. The older tradie that turns to the young apprentice and says “ Ya cant teach these kids Nuffin nowadays” or the senior leader in an organisation who is trapped in their role due to not having competent and confident subordinates emerging, may be teaching from their learning style rather than using the learning style that would be most effective to their trainee.
Conflict can arise from Internal staff relationships, discipline, customer relationships and relationship with suppliers. Knowing and managing your conflict resolutions style is a key indicator in helping all staff have a more fluid and dynamic relationship in the business space.

Your business has a cycle it will follow through a year depending uniquely of your type of business.

Budgeting and financial analysis should be paramount to all businesses.

BOP 11. How to set CLEVER and SMART Goals.

This course is about putting filters in place before you run headlong into new directions that may overload your personal or professional capacity.
Over my life I have set some really dumb SMART goals, purely because I set off to do something I should have never attempted or pursued. I could use the SMART Goal setting process, but it was never a CLEVER thing for me to pursue. CLEVER was developed mid 2017 and has changed my life and 100's of others lives forever. If we discover whether something is CLEVER for us to do, before we make it a SMART goal, we will line ourselves up for a dynamic and powerful life. This Course has several goal setting templates that can be used to take your goals from conception to completion in a way that empowers your life without overloading or overwhelming your life. This allows you to PLANALIFE you want to live in.

BOP 13 How to build an Active Layered Business Plan.

This course will allow you to create a dynamic, pwerful and strategic business plan. When we help our clients build an Active Layered Business Plan [ALBP] the whole point is to first identify where a business needs to grow and how to create an effective strategic plan for that to happen. If we don’t thoughtfully diagnose then strategically plan where growth is possible we can end up with an idealistic plan that sits in the managers filing cabinet and is never referred to or actioned upon. Information is never as important as implementation! Most MD’s or GM’s complete a business plan as a compulsory exercise for a board or a loan application then rarely refer to it. When we work through a ALBP you will use and refer to it regularly because it will be relevant and dynamic and essential for you to reach you short medium and long-term objectives in a practical, do-able way. We call it a layered plan as we encourage you to place it in the hands of everyone who will be critically connected to its success.

POA as this is unique to every business

Often this will be over one day or two half days. There are some homework exercises and preparation outside the face to face time.

BOP 14. Understanding Stress Management Principles.

There is a questionnaire we will begin with to identify the current stress level you are living under and the factors that contribute to that. Then we can have a one to one meeting in a private session to discuss stress management principles that can alleviate stress and help you move from tipping point to optimal potential. We also conduct small seminars and group sessions with teams, groups, churches, gyms, and other groups to help people understand the factors that cause stress and the principles that reduce stress. If you deliberately implement stress reducing factors into your life on a regular, planned and in a purposeful way you can plan a life that moves more towards your optimal potential rather than living life almost at your tipping point where
