This Week's Challenge - May 29, 2012

The APP Icon
This Week's 1% Edge Portable Coach Challenge 
This week's challenge is in two areas.  I'm aware that those who are actively getting their coaching-training via the app are individual contributors as well as managers.  So I want to make sure there is a challenge for each category.

Challenge Choices:
1. Personal Productivity - Tracking time...the theme "recapture to reassign."
2. Management Effectiveness - Feeding Employee Motivation - Are You Making Deposits?

To work with these challenges - download the app - here is a link to the info. - click here. When you do so - it's important to say yes to the "push notification" because that is part of the coaching experience. I promise you will only get on average 1 message every few days.

As a reminder: the whole point of this blog and now the app is to help you gain and maintain your professional edge with the proven theory of focusing on simple behaviors and knowledge points that are embedded into your everyday - real time experience.

I've demonstrated through my training and coaching practice that you don't have to spend a lot of money or learn huge amounts of information at one time to gain competency as a manager and/or individual contributors.

What is required is...
...continuity - learning that builds upon itself
...continuous - or consistency of learning - ongoing vs. sporadic - a lifestyle so to speak
...ease of access - can find easily - virtually anywhere (the app is the ultimate in ease of access)
...ease of use - the "bite-size" format makes it easy to understand and implement
...repetition - our mind only absorbs so much at one time - repetition if essential for the most effective learning.
