Learn how to master your calendar, prioritize your tasks and change your work patterns to overcome overwhelm. Find the time to think, plan and work without burnout!
I'm an executive coach to leaders in the tech industry. The single most frequent issue my clients work with is overwhelm: a calendar that is booked from 8am Monday to 5pm Friday and leaves no time for thinking strategically, planning carefully or just taking some personal time off.
About Time is a five module, self-paced course that distills my experience, my reading and learning to provide you with the tools that work to get your time back. I keep the teaching direct and practical, and the exercises challenging to make sure you practice what you're learning as you take the course.
A COURSE IN FIVE MODULES
TIME, ATTENTION, DOPAMINE AND BEING BUSY
Learn about why getting a handle on your time is so hard: the difference between time and attention, the tricky mechanisms of Dopamine, and why being busy may just feel "natural".
A PRIORITIZATION MODEL AND HOW TO USE IT
Get introduced to the "Eisenhower Matrix" - a classic prioritization method - but more importantly, the mindset change you need to make it work in a fast-moving tech company.
TIME MANAGEMENT SUPERPOWERS
Learn about the two time management "super powers": delegation and ruthless calendar management. Both are easy to understand, but hard to do. Learn how to do them.
FINDING, KEEPING, AND USING THINKING TIME
Understand how to set aside time for thinking: strategy, planning, team growth. Then how to keep it, and most importantly how to use it when you've got it! (You may think this is impossible - it's not).
DEBUGGING: MAYBE IT'S YOU?
Learn how to debug what you've learned so far. And more importantly, how to dig into your deeper patterns of "being busy" or "being overwhelmed". What do you gain from them? How much are they your "comfortable place"?
WHAT'S IN THE COURSE
Over a dozen video lessons teaching practical, proven tools from a lifetime of management experience and leadership coaching.
An extensive workbook so you can track your reflections and exercises and deepen your learning.
Homework exercises to promote reflection and practice so you actively build your skils.
Access to an ongoing online community of leaders and learners in the tech industry.
2020 BONUS: access to TWO group coaching sessions specifically on Time and Attention with Joe Dunn, a leading Silicon Valley Executive Coach.
I'm Joe Dunn.
I joined my first startup before college, my second immediately after graduating, and never left the startup world through my operating career from junior engineer to SVP at a successful public company.
If you are at any stage of growth from Series A to a public company, I've been there.
In the current phase of my career, I coach startup leaders in San Francisco and worldwide, guiding them through the journey of scaling and growth.
Head of Eng, Plaid
My growth as a leader has benefited tremendously from Joe's coaching.
I recommend Joe to leaders of any level who want to make a step function change in their leadership capabilities.
Hollie Wegman, Technology Marketing Leader
As an experienced Marketing exec, Joe was a joy to work with.
I would strongly recommend him as a coach if you are looking to scale your executive presence and leadership.
Tido Carriero, Chief Product Development Officer at Segment
I worked with Joe as I began my VP Eng role at Segment. He was incredibly helpful in solving some of the most challenging problems I was facing.
If you get a chance to work with him, you should do it!
Larry Gadea, Founder and CEO, Envoy
I’ve loved working with Joe. I know that I can always count on him when having any form of management questions or ‘is this normal’ scenarios that come in my Founder/CEO position at Envoy.
I’d definitely recommend anybody going through extreme company growth to consider him — he’ll just make it that much easier!
