Jose Cuervo and the United Nations?

21 Aug

This e-mail just appeared in my Inbox . . .

I’m contacting you with a new story idea on how to achieve more by doing less–and other paradoxical truths of success.  

The big idea: Productivity expert Karlin Sloan sees increasing evidence that workers who strive too hard actually perform worse than their laid-back counterparts.


Sloan says being smarter, faster, and better is today’s ticket to personal and career success–but the paths to getting there are counterintuitive.


She has coached individuals and teams, from Jose Cuervo to the United Nations, on paradoxical ways to boost their performance, and can discuss:

  • Why perfectionism leads to low-quality work
  • How to get smarter by asking everyone else for answers
  • How to solve a vexing problem by daydreaming
  • How to meet a pressing deadline by taking a nap
  • How to lead your field by giving aid to the competition


Sloan is a nationally known executive coach and leadership consultant, and author of Smarter, Faster, Better: Strategies for Effective, Enduring, and Fulfilling Leadership (Jossey-Bass, $24.95). Founder and CEO of Karlin Sloan & Company, an executive coaching firm for individuals and organizations in the U.S., South America, and Asia, she was recognized by Fortune Small Business Magazine for her exceptional work with NYC organizations following the 9/11 attacks.


Please let me know if you would like me to arrange an interview or email you her 10 strategies for being smarter,faster and better.
