Become Organized

Whether in a corporate setting or small office organization, using our simple time management systems, you become and stay organized as you manage all the work flooding into your office in various forms: paper, email, verbal requests, long-term projects. You will find what you need, when you need it, and stay focused on your highest priorities.

A Common System Throughout Your Organization

With our processes, it takes 60 seconds or less to prioritize your daily work. Managers, administrators, and staff can now be on the same page, using the same reliable system. Sharing a common framework for organizing work and setting priorities reduces confusion and maximizes efficiency.

By discussing together key items in their system files, managers and employees can quickly ensure that priorities match. This process also provides accountability within your department or company so that unanticipated absences by any staff member can easily be covered.

What to Expect

systems detail step-by-step processes that are easy to understand, easy to implement, and easy to maintain. We come into your corporate setting or help with small office organization, providing a half day or full day of training. We can also assist with implementation of our system within your department. In a few hours, your new work habits and organized workspace will display competence, confidence, and professionalism.

Our clients describe their results from implementing our training:

"Key Organization Systems brings you more than a neat desk top--Denise's method provides a comprehensive organizational plan that works whether you have 3 or 30 ongoing projects. Paper and electronic documents can swallow you up--the simple and highly effective organizational techniques one learns decrease stress, increase confidence and make accomplishing the work enjoyable and satisfying!"
Carmel Dyer, MD, AGSF, FACP, Associate Chairman of Internal Medicine
University of Texas Medical School
"I attended a session on organizing an office that you gave last year. At that time, my desk looked like some of the photos that you showed - piles and piles of stuff. My office manager's office looked the same, and I was worried that we were going to let something important slip through the cracks. I took your information and over the next 3 days, the office manager and I completely reorganized our offices. They looked BEAUTIFUL when we finished. And they still do a year later!! My office manager said that she now looked forward to coming into the office each morning. Your system met our needs perfectly. We can easily find things, we can keep track and accomplish a multitude of tasks each day, and importantly, if one of us is out the other can easily see what needs to be done that day and plan accordingly. Thank you for making this possible. I highly recommend your system to anyone."
Jane Harding, Executive Director
Executive Service Corps
"It's been one week today that I have been using your new system and I think you literally saved my life and career. My group that you met with has all begun working on their own offices, and everyone is happy with all the extra time they are finding. I just wanted to thank you for all you have done for me. I am now happy and getting a real life instead of staying at work trying to play catch-up. I even signed up for dance lessons today that I will take after work. You are my hero and my mentor! Thank you for what you do!"
Katherine Holley, Clinical Manager
Texas Children's Hospital
"I wanted to tell you how much I appreciated the seminar you conducted. I have implemented the system you recommended and must say it is wonderful! When I attended your talk I was looking for a way to get rid of my To Do list as I was writing and re-writing it several times per week. In addition, I was losing sleep because I was thinking of more to do's during the night that I had forgotten to document. I have had many peaceful nights since I implemented your system. I have adopted your main precepts, written those phrases out, and put them on my keyboard tray. Thank you for the great work you are doing."
Tommye White, National Director of Education and Community Relations
Money Management International
