TIME MANAGEMENT FOR LANDSCAPE PROS
virtual event

March 16, 2022

Who It’s For: Landscaping company owners, HR managers, recruiters, and operations managers

The 100 days that lead up to July 4 have affectionately been called the “100 Days of Hell” by landscape professionals for years because of the chaos that normally fills them as we scramble to get all the work our clients want done by their timelines. Companies across the country struggle with effectively managing their time, and team members often work long hours to make up for it. There are plenty of challenges, but there is also tremendous opportunity if we're able to use this time wisely, join us to learn strategies for prioritizing, managing disruptions, and keeping control of your calendar so you can turn the 100 Days of Hell into the 100 Days of Victory.
