KP promised that Office 365 would make your work easier. I can help you make good that promise

Has it yet?

KP has switched to Office 365, and your work really can get easier

—but what does that take?

Here’s the secret:

It takes thinking differently.

There are plenty of help docs on how to use Office 365.

What about how to think about Office 365?

Thinking differently (about what you know, how you work, and which tools you use)—this is the key to achievement.

To me, achievement is getting your most important things done and leaving work on time.

How can I help you think differently for achievement?

For starters, I can give you a powerful, simple principle (which I shared with KP Mid-Atlantic leadership in October 2017) to think differently about your work:

Value Created = Knowledge x Methods x Tools

Understanding that these things multiply together is the first step to achievement.

Here are some resources I offer, applied to Office 365 and oriented around my simple principle:

For achievers who want to achieve more

KP promised the way you work would get easier with Office 365. While this has come true for a few, for most others, this is not yet the case.

I firmly believe it can and should, but that takes thinking differently about how you work, what you know, and the tools you use.

To help you do just that, I've developed this guided Thrive with Office 365 Coaching Program for MAPMG. In this program, I will walk you, step-by-step, through how to:

  • Set up Office 365 to suit how you work
  • Set up OneNote to manage your action and reference material
  • Manage all the information and commitments coming your way
  • Keep focused on what’s most important

This program builds on my 15 years of experience implementing my eProductivity software solution, 20 years of working with David Allen's GTD methodology, and my past 5 years working with people at MAPMG. Coming from this background (and having recently helped people at MAPMG navigate the transition from Lotus Notes to Office 365), I have a unique perspective on what people need in a productivity system. You can change the way Office 365 works for you.
