If you want to beat procrastination and have the best year in your life and in business, then come listen to this presentation. Ask yourself “What would you want to achieve if you and/or your team didn’t procrastinate?”
Imagine getting you and your team together, staying on track and focused to do more than has ever done before!
Imagine living in a world filled with innovative people and businesses. A place with adventure around every corner, peopled with those who accept personal responsibility and have an awareness of their personal power. That is what Rachel is here to help you see. That a world like this is possible.
Congratulations to Hiro Hirashiki who is our Volunteer of the Month for August!
Hiro joined our Mentor Program last year and wanted to try out new project management skills in a safe environment. We assigned him to the PMO to develop a Disaster Recovery Plan for the LA Chapter. He stepped up enthusiastically to the leadership role and started using his skills – developing a charter, tracking action items, keeping sponsors informed and the team on track. Hiro never wavered from his goal (through holiday times and absent members) and went above and beyond to successfully complete the plan (with a risk register). He also suggested process improvements for the document and the content. And now the Chapter is ready for any future emergency. Thank you for a great job, Hiro!
And now a few words from Hiro that he would like to share with you....
