This course focuses on a minimalist - or essentialist - approach so that important goals may be brought to the forefront of our lives. This approach assures that the choices made move you from a multitasking environment to one of choice that emphasizes limiting and setting goals, defining those goals clearly, setting everything else aside and refraining from taking on additional responsibilities.


Leaders can make use of the essentialist principles by identifying a clear focus and clearly defined roles for team members. This approach facilitates clear communication, removal of obstacles to the goals, and choosing the best team members.
