Time Management vs. Energy Management
“A power plant doesn’t have energy, it generates energy.” – Brendan Bouchard
In the last decades, time management has been synonymous with productivity. And yet, time management has created unbelievable amounts of stress for most of us. Now, the greatest thinking and research on this subject takes a shift, claiming that when we control our energy we get a new lease on how time affects us and our productivity.
In this presentation you will discover that:
- Rather than working long, concentrated hours, your brain functions at a higher capacity when you work in “pulses” or intervals.
- Great athletes learn to completely rest and renew and our personal, team and organizational productivity functions in the same way.
- The brain is more productive when we give ourselves time to be creative.
- Our emotions, connection to others and sense of security are important indicators of productivity.
Rather than living with fatigue, stress, and frustration you will walk away from this presentation creating simple, sustainable rituals for yourself and your team that create:
- Sustainable physical energy,
- Emotional security,
- Self expression,
- Spiritual significance
Regain your sanity. Get rid of outdated, traditional productivity disciplines and learn that Energy Management is the new normal. Learn how our personal and organizational productivity, your well-being and your happiness will soar.
A New Way to Hire
Hiring is the Definition of Insanity!
That is why she has worked with dozens of companies and organizations implementing a revolutionary new way to hire which she calls the Fail Proof Hiring System.
This is not just a new HR or interviewing theory. It is a business solution designed to save time, money and the sanity of anyone who has employees, wants better employees or wants the right employees.
Turnover can cost your organization between 150% to 300% of the annual salary for every person that leaves your company. Hiring people who are capable, solve problems and help you run your organization, is not a daydream. You can make it happen with ease. But you need a better System.
In this presentation you will discover:
- The crazy thing: We hire for skills but we fire for behavior: The way we hire does not address behavior at all. Learn to quickly create a job profile that includes behavior, skills, experience and culture match.
- How to save time and screen for skills, behavior, drive and acumen before you even meet your applicants.
- How to take an uncomfortable conversation, the interview, and turn it into an enjoyable, relaxing and productive meeting.
- How to replace hiring by gut instinct with a system that works every time.
In this fast paced, highly informative presentation, Ruth will give you all the tools and concepts you need to revolutionize your hiring process today and stop bad hires, panic hires and wasted time and money.

We invited Ruth Schwartz to present, "Its not you. Its the Hiring System that's Flawed", as a breakout session at our recent COSE Annual Small Business Conference. The attendees of that session were engrossed by both the unique material that challenged their thinking and by Ruth's compelling and inclusive presentation style. They walked away with actionable steps and many are putting the material to use, right away. Ruth's session allowed for lots of participation and plenty of Q&A. We'd love to bring her back to present again. " - Adina Magda, Event and Program Coordinator,COSE 2014 Small Business Conference

One of the best speakers we have had was Ruth Schwartz. What a dynamic speaker she is! I love how she engaged with the audience, the eye content, the whole presentation was captivating. The information she shared was very interesting and any person in business could learn how to deal with different personality types to increase sales. Most everyone was taking notes and totally present with her. I would take a workshop with her and I would never hesitate to recommend her. Thank you for bringing her to our chapter! --Debi Gaul, HeartfeltHands, EWomen Sacramento
