Course overview

Wrangle Your Time – Find Peace

😫 Triple booked.

😫 Eating through Lunch. Skipping Lunch.

😫 Checking email in the evenings.

😫 Feeling overwhelmed.

😫 Unable to say NO to more work tasks.

If this is you, the time to act and reclaim your time ⏳, energy 🌟 and focus 🔎 is right now. The future of work is evolving, and we all need a reset on how we plan and protect our time.

Through two hands-on workshops led by Alison Gretz, an Executive Coach and Facilitator, you'll redesign your calendar within the week long course.

A blend of Time Management techniques, radical prioritization strategies, suggested calendar rituals, and assertive but kind boundaries will set you up to wrangle your time once and for all.

PLUS! Alison is gifting everyone a complimentary Calendar Audit & Reflection Workbook ($95 value) to check in with your progress and habits a month later.

You've lost control over your calendar, your days are not your own, with little room for your needs.


You think you are experiencing burnout in your corporate job.


You have a hard time saying "no" to other's, and then resent them later.


You are neurodiverse (or neuro-spicy) and want to harness your unique strengths
