TELL US A BIT ABOUT YOURSELF

My name is Adam Gieniusz. I work at my own business. I’m a coach and I’m a trainer and also a father of an 8 year old daughter.

 

HOW IMPORTANT IS TIME IN YOUR WORK?

I do a lot of 1 on 1 work with my clients and we work at time defined schedules so keeping the time is important for me and it’s important for my clients. Also in training sessions it’s important to time exercises. I mostly work from home so it’s important for me to focus and stop procrastinating. Having such a time management tool is greatly helpful.

This is not work related, but as a father is sometimes helpful to be specific with my daughter about the time she has for screen, reading books and other activities.

WHAT WAS THE PROBLEM YOU HAD AND DID TIMEQUBE HELP SOLVE IT?

This is interesting. I wasn’t aware about the problem I wanted to solve until I saw the Timeqube.When I saw it it was like “this is the solution to the problem I never realised to have” which is being able keep time without distracting noises and without awkwardly checking time on a clock or wrist watch when working with the client.

And it’s also a cool gadget. When I take it for training sessions , people ask me: “Oh what’s this? It’s green, yellow and red!”

WHO DO YOU RECOMMEND TIMEQUBE TO?

I really recommend it for people working on 1:1 basis. Even remotely. I use Timeqube for my remote sessions to keep the qube in front of me or somewhere I can see it. It helps me keeping time for myself. And for parents. It’s again interesting way to keep your child focused or keep yourself reminded about something your child does.

 

ANY TIPS ON RUNNING EFFECTIVE MEETINGS?

Well I think the first is : don’t run them at all. But then my worst nightmare is with people are late and we waste time because John is on the way or Thomas is in traffic.

Surprisingly effective was to write in the invite “We really want you to be on time because we want to start on time”. This really did the job.

 

Thanks for your time and good luck with your trainings!
