What is "Women and Time Management?"
A time management book for working women---based on what has worked well for the female clients of North America's top executive women coaches.
Year after year, we have heard working women’s frustrations, and we have helped them deal with massive internal conflicts. Both society and individuals struggle with countless expectations, too much to do in too little time, and the fact that they receive little of the support or recognition they want—and deserve.
Men with little insight into—or appreciation for—a woman’s unique predicaments, biology, and socialization patterns have attributed her problem as one of time management! They then have proceeded to write a number of articles and books suggesting how she “fix” her problem. However, their suggestions are based on what works for men—and those suggestions are largely unhelpful for women.
Is it any wonder that the self-help books currently available don’t work well in relieving the pressures working women routinely face?
Executive coaches Barb McEwen and John Agno, have documented over three years, proven coaching solutions that have worked well for their career women clients. These exclusive self-coaching secrets discovered by successful women clients are now, for the first time, available to all working women.
The concept for the book came about because of very real, very important needs that their female clients repeatedly express. The book is intended to help you understand and work with your unique inner compass. As you read the book, you will be amazed at what you learn about yourself.
“Women and Time” delivers proven time management tips that reduce stress and help you reclaim your time and life. This self-coaching book is fully loaded with unique insights for time-strapped women:

If your brain tells you there will always be more to do, then this book is for you.
Creating a more holistic paradigm of balance to your work and personal life will help you from thinking you are running between compartments. This new dynamic equilibrium is meant to allow all the parts of life to work synergistically in a highly interrelated whole. Life balance isn't an "either/or" but an "and."
The roles you play at home and work must be in concert...not requiring you to play different roles. Although there are distinct competencies attached to each role, it is to your advantage to create a powerful synergy among all roles.
Effective time management allows you to be more flexible, not less flexible. It facilitates you doing the things you really want to do and to become the person you want to be. When you put these newly adopted coaching tips into practice, everything that comes your way becomes organized.
This inter-role synergy saves incredible problem-solving time and energy.
