How busy are you? In the daily struggle to get it all done, what are you forgetting? Is your mind constantly racing with lists of all the things you could and should be doing? And how about the people for whom you are responsible? Are you concerned that they aren’t always focused on the organization’s most critical priorities? If so, it’s time for you (and them) to get to IT-the most “Important Thing.” Define IT. Focus on IT. Even get excited about IT.


Your staff or association members have arrived and are ready to begin another meeting or corporate retreat. But are they focused on improving their professional skills and their individual performance? Using witty examples and a high-energy style, Jones assists individuals in embracing the need to make the most of their time away from their normal routine.

Key Objectives

  • Teaching others to develop a "gardeners" mentality toward change
  • Discovering the 4 key elements required to start the growth of any change
  • Identifying the “3Ps” that must be addressed to help any change move forward
  • Determining where resources need to be reallocated to nurture the continued growth of a change
  • Leveraging the motivation that comes from small wins in the change process


Take a survey of the people in your organization about topics they would rather NOT talk about, and one of them will be change. They may have dutifully followed the steps outlined by the organization, only to experience a negative result when the change process was over. Others may have felt forced to change, led to believe the current contributions they were making were completely unacceptable. Still others may have felt overwhelmed by the thought of change when they were already working at capacity with their time and energy. A fresh approach is needed for individuals and organizations of the 21st century. Jones Loflin says that new approach is built on four words: Plant, Cultivate, Prune, and Harvest.

Key Objectives

See if this sounds familiar? Too much to do, too many priorities, too much stress and too little time. If this sounds like you, maybe it’s time to run off and join the circus...well mentally, that is. Using the engaging metaphor of a circus, Jones equips participants to take more control of their time and energy resources to accomplish what is most important to them and their organization.
