GIFT #2: The Art of Saying "No"
Many faculty (pre and post-tenure) find it incredibly difficult to sort out when, why and how to say "NO". In this monthly training call, you will learn: 1) the biggest mistakes faculty make in responding to requests, 2 ) how to identify and disrupt problematic patterns, and 3) our favorite strategies that you can implement immediately so you can add "no" to your vocabulary this semester.
GIFT #3: Zero Inbox
Are you overwhelmed by email? Here's a quick explanation of how I achieve ZERO INBOX on a daily basis:

Some of you expressed interest in our 12-week Summer Boot-Camp. You can read more about the program by clicking here. It's not for everyone, but if you need to make some radical changes in your productivity and/or work-life balance AND you know that you'll be most effective working within an intense community of support and accountability, then consider enrolling in our next session.
In this 60-minute workshop, learn how to create an irresistible offer, how to position your FSP participation as a win-win situation for your college, and how to secure a commitment from your university that will provide you with the tools you need to thrive in your department!
The 14-Day Writing Challenge is an opportunity for you to experiment with daily writing in a supportive environment for free, and with a little daily dose of electronic love from me.
Our next challenge is from April 11-24, 2016.
The challenge is simple: write for at least 30 minutes every day (Monday through Friday) for two weeks. At the end of that time, you can evaluate for yourself: 1) did daily writing increase or decrease your productivity? and b) did participation in a community increase/decrease your enjoyment of the writing process?

I greatly enjoyed working with you and am looking forward to hearing about all of your success.
