Keeping Cool During the Proposal Process

Recorded On: 05/16/2017

Wondering how to stop getting sucked into that perpetual deadline craziness? Rushing, stressing, and being exhausted after each proposal or client submittal, over and over again? Join us to learn about the overwhelm cycle—what it is and how to stop it. If you are an entry- mid- or senior-level professional with responsibilities during the proposal process, this webinar is for you!

Each of us has a cycle of overwhelm that is specific to our own personality and style. With today's fast-paced, ever-demanding work environment, understanding and overcoming your overwhelm cycle is key to maximizing productivity and creating a sustainable career experience. Participants will gain an understanding of the 5 Zones of the Overwhelm Cycle (i.e., Escalation, Overwhelm, Recovery, Ramp Up and the Zone) and will identify their own overwhelm cycle. Participants will learn practical ways to manage and interrupt their overwhelm cycle for greater productivity and job satisfaction.
