My Top Reads of the Past Week: Unbreakable Focus

I trust that you’ve had a productive week!

I’m very excited to share a great selection of articles on developing resilience, building a future-proof team, getting inspired, managing perceptions, reaching your goals, and improving your approach to sales. But first, I wanted to let you know about our upcoming public course: Female Leadership: Grow Your Influence and Impact.

There is a well-established link between a diverse gender-balanced workforce and better business performance. Across the globe, companies are looking for ways to attract, hire, promote and retain more women at all levels of seniority. This course helps female leaders to maximise their impact and showcase their value through effective communication techniques, enhanced use of networks and heightened self-awareness.

We are in the Skills Business!

Through recruitment, training and consulting, Timeo-Performance provides solutions for increased performance of companies, teams, and individuals. As our clients are in the center of global business and often serve the APAC region, our solutions need to be sustainable in a multicultural and remote context.

Our joint venture with Akteos, the European leader in intercultural training, and partnership with digital learning solutions provider CrossKnowledge have therefore been organic and logical additions to our service. Timeo-Performance has been helping companies in APAC increase business performance since 2008 with offices in Singapore, Malaysia, and Hong Kong.

We love what we do, feel the Timeo-Performance experience!

As busy professionals, our schedules are often filled to the brim with meetings and tasks to complete. We can get so caught up with work that we might even forget our all-important lunch and power through dinner as well. Alas, we can only do so much given the 24 hours we have in a day. While time management is vital, being productive is another matter in its entirety.Enter time batching.
