Safety Client Program

PUSHED TO THE LIMIT!

Busy- The New Badge Of Honor is Costing Canadian and US Companies over $188 Billion Dollars per Year in Stress-Related Illnesses and Accidents.

We’re all just so “BUSY” these days. “Slammed.” “Buried,” in fact. Desperately trying to “keep our heads above water.” “Up to my ass in alligators.” While all of these are common responses to “How are you?” Oh, and if you don’t want to say any of the above, “fine,” is usually the runner-up response. It’s a constant exchange, even a one-up attempt of just how much we have on our plates when we communicate to others about our work and home lives.

Breaking Busy – Why busyness, our new norm, is making us sick, depleting our energy and literally causing accidents in our workplaces and our homes.

In Linda’s presentation you will learn:

  1. What got us here.
  2. What busy is doing to us.
  3. How we can strategically step off the Busy Treadmill.

In more detail:

  1. Change, what’s really getting in the way of you moving forward? Change has never been this painless!
  2. Clutter, how we sabotage our success with terminal piles!
  3. Fatigue, tools to re-energize and re-engage.
  4. Clarity, get down to what you really want, and become more accountable (No is the new Black).
  5. Laughter, this may be the best laugh you have had in a long time.

Thanks so much for your wonderful presentation at our conference! Fantastic and insightful: great, helpful info delivered through humour, just fantastic!

–Atlific Hotels

Linda Edgecome has the uncanny ability to deliver a message that is timely, relevant, and engaging to a breadth of people within the organization. Speaking about the topic of change to an audience comprised of teachers, maintenance workers, custodial staff, teacher assistants, librarians, psychologists, and so on, is challenging. Linda turned this challenge into an opportunity. Her motivating and energetic approach to talking about change inspired a lot of people to reflect on their own lives, the lives of their family members, as well as co-workers and consider the long held beliefs that drive what they do. Her delivery is imbued with passion and humour. People in this organization still refer to her program many months later.

Linda was absolutely terrific!! I can’t remember when I last laughed so much in one day ... She is truly an inspiring personality and is extremely good at what she does. 'Dynamic' would be the catchall word.

The feedback from our Conference was absolutely amazing. Thank you for exceeding all expectations and delivering the perfect message to our delegates. While we were uncertain whether a person of your gifts and talents would be fully appreciated by our audience, you were definitely the right choice at the right time. We were especially pleased by the positive feedback received from the family members who joined us for your closing remarks. It is very rewarding to know that we have helped improve the lives of our members and their families – THANKS A MILLION!

–International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers

Linda was an overwhelming success for our organization. Everyone had a wonderful time listening to Linda's words - she made us think and renew ourselves-all the while laughing and enjoying every minute of her presentation!! "Energy, perspective and fun" - those are the resounding feelings that we received from Linda.

–Shell Oil

Because Linda delivers her message with such great humor, it has allowed our staff to get introspective in light of the major turmoil we are experiencing at this time. She has delivered this presentation to our management team as well as our frontline staff.

–Telus Communications

As a meeting planner it is always a great relief to have speakers that are easy to work with and provide exceptional content and value to your conference. Linda was that and more! The attendees at IFMA's World Workplace 2010 conference and expo "LOVED" Linda. We offered Shift or Get off the Pot in a Power Speaker series twice for our nearly 5,000 conference attendees and we had participants attend the session twice "it was THAT good." Moreover her book SOLD OUT in our onsite bookstore within minutes. Linda did an amazing job for us and we will definitely bring her back.

–International Facility Management Association

The audience was engaged in Linda’s presentation immediately. Following the presentation, this is what some of the attendees had to say. 'Absolutely awesome speaker. What a positive attitude and view of the world. Thank-you. I laughed until I cried, then laughed again! Excellent speaker.' We recommend Linda and she was a delight to work with.
