In Work Simply, renowned productivity expert Carson Tate helps you discover your personal working style, so you never have to feel overwhelmed again. Ever feel like you spend more time managing your productivity system than doing actual work? Carson Tate has worked with thousands of men and women - corporate managers, entrepreneurs, government officials, busy parents - to help them find their unique working style and usher in a new era of calm productivity. In Work Simply she gives you the tools you need to find the same. Through her unique Productivity Style Assessment, you'll discover whether you're a Prioritiser, Planner, Arranger or Visualiser - or a combination of some or all. Where the Prioritizer sees the big picture and wants to know "why", the Planner wants deadlines and details. The Arranger is sensitive to the needs of others, while the Visualizer thinks holistically about one cohesive whole. Whether you tend towards one or identify with bits of them all, Tate will teach you the strategies you need to banish the stress and strain; like why it's more effective to email a Planner, and deliver that same message in person to an Arranger.By knowing yourself - and those around you - your work will become more productive and more effective. It will become Work Simply. Carson Tate's mission is to bring productivity with passion back to the workplace. She is the founder and principal of Working Simply and serves as a consultant, coach and trainer to executives at Fortune 500 companies.
