The most important (professional) skill …

is the ability to manage yourself.

More fun, lower absenteeism, higher productivity, less staff turnover.

We often think we are pretty good at it, however as Seth Godin states in his famous blog The Worlds Worst Boss; “odds are you are doing poorly.”

  • You have to manage your time and energy. So you need to manage different dimensions at the same time!
  • You cannot learn this from reading books. You need to learn from real life situations.
  • You cannot rely on your memory. You need measuring tools for factual insights. To measure is to know.

Fortunately, ForeF can help.
ForeF mate is not:
  • Time Registration. These tools are made for control and invoicing, not for learning. Furthermore the scope is limited to time.
  • A set of courses. The focus is not to learn from external sources, but to learn from yourself.
  • A coach.
