HRDQ-U Webinar | Being Present and Productive

Being Present and Productive When There is Never Enough Time

This On-Demand event was originally presented on April 13, 2016 (60 min)


All too often, people go through life without truly connecting – and can, as a result, miss out on experiences and relationships that have the power to bring them great joy. Learning how to be productive with the ‘5 Gears’ presented in this engaging webinar can improve your ability to connect with the world around you.

Join the authors of 5 Gears: How to Be Present and Productive When There Is Never Enough Time as they teach you to shift into the right gear at the right time so that you can grow in your relational intelligence and increase your influence. In this engaging webinar, we will introduce you to the five different gears, or mindsets, that carry you through various facets of your day.

  • First gear: when you fully rest and recharge
  • Second gear: when you connect with family or friends without the involvement of work
  • Third gear: when you are socializing
  • Fourth gear: when you are working and multi-tasking
  • Fifth gear: when you are fully focused and ‘in the zone,’ working without interruption


Using these gears consistently allows you to bring a new level of relational intelligence to your life that offers a competitive advantage in our task-driven world.

Attendees will learn

  • How to be in the right gear at the right time.
  • How to be relationally connected in several spaces.
  • How to create trigger points to change your mindset when shifting gears.
  • Why recharging and bonding add to productivity.
