Uncertainty is a part of life and here to stay; of this we are certain. Who knows when there will be another public health emergency, or for that matter, when this one will end? The economy is a roller coaster. One wonders what the stores will run out of next, and even the weather cannot be counted on to behave normally. This pilot presentation, given by Judith Kolberg - a respected industry thought-leader, will describe four organizing projects specifically designed to make your clients feel more secure and in control of the future despite the era of uncertainty. You need not be an expert in each project area. In fact, you will discover that all the projects utilize tried-and-true organizing principles professional organizer and productivity consultants are already familiar with. You can offer the entire selection of projects to your clients as an Era of Uncertainty© package or choose the projects most compatible with your business strategy.

Participants will learn:

  • How Uncertainty Undermines the Capacity to Be and Stay Organized, and the surprising opportunity it offers for innovation

  • Specific Tried-and-True Organizing Principles and Skills that support organization in times of uncertainty, and a couple of new ones!

  • Concrete Organizing Projects to undertake with clients right now to help them in times of uncertainty. These include: Managing Information Afterlife, Personal Supply Chain Management, Essential Disaster Preparedness, and The Closure Project.

Join Judith in this 2-hour pilot workshop to be there for your clients in this era of uncertainty.

She is credited with launching an entire field of professional organizing specifically dedicated to addressing the needs of individuals who are challenged by chronic disorganization. She founded the National Study Group on Chronic Disorganization in 1990 which is the precursor to the Institute for Challenging Disorganization (ICD). Her innovative organizing methods are described in four commercially-successful books. In collaboration with Dr. Regina Lark her latest book is entitled Emotional Labor: Why A Woman’s Work is Never Done and What To Do About It.

Respected by her peers as an industry thought-leader, she is the recipient of the organizing industry’s highest awards and has been honored with the creation of the Judith Kolberg Award. Judith is a former President of the GA chapter of the National Association of Professional Organizers, an emeritus member of NAPO, and a member of the ICD.
