What Does He Do?
Jim Muckle specializes in showing leaders and managers how to take care of their most important assets – their brains and the brains of those around them. He speaks, coaches, trains, and facilitates to support individuals, teams and organizations in:
a. increasing their capacity – which helps them to reduce their stress and improve their performance. Would you like to be using more of the capacity you’re already paying for?
b. using that increased capacity to be more productive – which helps them to produce more of their desired work/life results, including in their workplace goals and ‘bottom line.’
c. taking great care of their brains – which helps them to enjoy better overall health for longer. Could you and your colleagues be ‘living younger?’ Do you have a longevity plan?
