One of the first books I read when I became serious about organizing was Organizing from the Inside Out by Julie Morgenstern. Despite the explosive growth in the industry, to this day, I can’t think of a professional organizer who is more well known.
Just imagine what it would do for your skill level, your credibility, and your self-confidence to be trained by the Julie Morgenstern Organizing Institute! Julie has developed cutting-edge training courses to teach her methods to both new and experienced organizers, including the following two programs scheduled for the fall.
Organizing Clients from the Inside Out – Friday, October 21 and Saturday, October 22, 2011
To earn your clients’ loyalty, you need to understand how they think and function. Knowing how to make things look good just isn’t enough! Based on the Organizing from the Inside Out book, this workshop will train you to organize people rather than things, and to design systems that are customized to your client’s unique habits, style and goals. After two days, you’ll know how to provide exceptional client service that will increase your referrals and help you stand out from your competition.
Conducting a Needs Assessment – Sunday, October 23, 2011
This workshop was designed to develop your analytic, diagnostic and closing skills, which are completely different than those required for hands-on organizing. It provides focused study and practice of each stage of a two-hour, billable needs assessment, from the first 5 minutes through the presentation and close. You’ll learn to walk into any new organizing project and map out a winning plan of action based on the client’s unique needs.
I conducted a lot of free 30-minute consultations before I realized it wasn’t giving me a good return on investment, and switched to a longer, billable assessment. I’d have saved myself a lot of time and energy if I’d taken this one-day workshop, and it would have paid for itself very quickly!
These workshops will be held in Midtown New York, and you can save $200 if you sign up for both. This is an amazing deal, especially if you’re traveling in from out of town for the weekend. Sign up before September 15 and get a 10% early bird discount!
