Michigan Guardianship Association: Does Your Office Need an Intervention?

The Michigan Guardianship Association is gathering for its 22nd Annual Spring Conference at the Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City, Michigan May 12-13, 2011.

I've been invited to present "Does Your Office Need an Intervention?" to these wonderful, caring people who, like many of the rest of us, just "get too busy to get organized".

In addition to tips for better time management, some of the important questions I'll be answering include:
  • Where do you start when only a big dumpster will solve your program?
  • What about the paper?
  • What about interruptions?
  • What's the secret to planning for deadlines?
  • What's the secret to capturing more time and writing time entries that demonstrate value?
Much like other folks in the legal profession, Guardians have to keep track of their time and submit bills, usually to the court. I've been told that they only do this ONCE A YEAR! I don't know about you, but that would lead to big trouble for me -- monthly is tough enough.

Many of them also work from home offices where it's easy to let the piles of files and paper grow since no one else is looking.

It will be fun to share my ideas with this group and put them on the path to a more organized life that will, in turn, provide a more relaxed life.

See you May 12th!
