You are doing a great job managing your time and life. Congratulations! Coaching may help you achieve even higher levels of performance.


You are managing yourself and time to a considerable extent. There is still room for improvement. You will benefit from taking a Time/Self-Management workshop. Consider coaching to help you further develop your self-management skills and learn new strategies.


Things may be spinning out of control. You need to change certain behaviors and learn new skills. Don't walkRUN to a Time/Self-Management workshop. Strongly consider coaching.
