because you can’t get back time

Transforming the way work (and life) gets done.


Every day, we’re so inundated with complexity, information, data, and physical stuff that our attention is exhausted. The emails are nonstop, the phone is ringing, there are constant back-to-back meetings, and yet another fire drill. We are overwhelmed, which translates into an inability to reach our full performance potential. With each day busier than the last and a neverending to-do list, time is the most precious commodity we have.

By overcoming the constant disruption and chaos so prevalent in today’s workplace, Effective Edge essentially creates capacity by managing focus so that individuals and teams can get more done. It’s more than an email management system.  It’s a proven approach to take care of everything that comes at you in a day, allowing you to achieve success and balance. Effective Edge is one of our core offerings at InteraWorks and central to focus, time and task management.

Everything in One Place


The easiest way to improve quality of life and employee performance potential is to get organized. When we know what our priorities are and have all our actions in one centralized location, we can focus and apply our attention and energy to accomplishing the things that are most important to us.

We also integrate learning about how the brain functions and why that is key to managing digital addictions and distractions, as well as reducing multi-tasking, so that we can sustain focus and performance over time.

Workshops that Work

Effective Edge can be used as a standalone program or within existing corporate initiatives such as a Leadership Development Program or Employee Onboarding Programs. This program uses your technology, making key methodologies easy to implement in a step-by-step process resulting in a productivity dashboard to manage work and life flow. Effective Edge can also be tailored for specific roles or functions such as Professionals, Leaders, Executives or standardized and scaled via our Edge Connect Program.

Just some of the results you’ll see

  • Fully integrated, system with all email, voice mail, and meetings, in one centralized location

Mastery Practices Continue the Transformation


As with all our programs, Effective Edge also includes Mastery Practices — monthly learning sessions that are complimentary and facilitated live. These 1-hour micro-learning bites help support implementation and integration of what’s been learned. It’s amazing what a difference one hour can make.

What Our Clients Say

“Our employees highly value the “EDGE for Professionals” training they received.  Several of our Business Unit Presidents are strong champions of the workshop and recommend it to their teams.  The Edge workshop is our highest-rated workshop conducted by an outside vendor.”

I mean this with 100% sincerity – for the past few weeks, my life has changed.  I have two children under two years old and work nearly constantly based on the nature of my job, whether I’m in the office or at home.  Using Effective Edge, my inbox is empty at the end of the day, my tasks are set, I’m delegating and holding my team accountable as a Leader, and most importantly to me – my family is getting the benefit of having me plugged in fully as I’m less worried about work and keeping up when I’m home.
