Agile, Fast-Flex Meetings (As-You-Work Workshop)
Teams and organizations wanting rapid team empowerment, culture transformation, and meeting effectiveness. Suitable for on-site, virtual, and hybrid teams.
Fast, Focused, Fun, Forever (in One Week)
Are your company meetings exciting? Astonishingly effective? Do you look forward to participating? Or do you look for excuses?
Priacta specializes in rapid change that transforms teams and lives with the least possible effort. In one week you can move your meetings from boring to brilliant, then watch your organization start to transform itself.
How We Do It
We teach you new, powerful meeting principles, empower team leaders to facilitate in radically new ways, introduce you to new software tools and new ways of engaging, and drill your team in their new methods. We do most of it during your actual meetings, so you change as you do your work.
The entire change takes about a week from start to finish for a single team, with as much coach follow-up as needed over a month to ensure permanent habits. Members of other teams can listen in and begin adopting the changes on their own, with mentoring from your charter team to reinforce and spread their new habits. Or our coaches can step in to transform them as well. You decide.
- Team Leader Discovery and Training
The transformation begins with a Priacta coach interviewing your team lead(s) by phone or webcam. We ask precise questions to assess your team’s unique needs. We also assess your team’s IT environment to recommend appropriate meeting support tools. Then we train your team leaders in the principles and skills behind agile, agendaless meetings so they are ready to facilitate brilliantly.
- Team Training
Next, your coach meets with the team via private webinar and trains them on the new approach and tools. All questions are answered and new tools set up during that session. The team feels excitement and hope as they grasp the benefits of the new meeting format, and they are anxious to begin.
- First Agile Meeting
Change starts now! The team immediately dives in to hold their first meeting using the new approach. You lead the team while the coach assists you. Your team tackles easy issues first, then jumps in to solve the most difficult problems you now face. As success unfolds, everyone feels exhilarated! The meeting ends on time, and people leave energized to continue working.
- Post-Meeting Mentoring
Right after your first success, you and your coach wrap things up. You are trained and guided through post-meeting steps, and you choose and train the person who will handle that in the future.
- Second Agile Meeting
The next time you meet (one week later in most cases), you repeat your prior successes and take it to the next level. You learn how to follow up effectively, and you solidify your new approach. Once you start down this path, your team will never want to go back!
- A dedicated business analyst/coach.
- A customized agile, agendaless meeting template you can use throughout your organization.
- Coach-led training session with team leader(s).
- Coach mentoring for meeting leader(s) and team(s) in two meetings.
- (Rarely, if needed.) If additional personnel and team issues come to light during this process, you will receive recommendations for optional training services to implement a complete transformation. (Could include 1-1 coaching, training, employee turnaround, leader onboarding, consulting, or interim management services to address personnel issues for a complete transformation. Use us or do it yourself, you decide.)

Best Money You Can Spend
“Kevin Crenshaw has changed my professional life. I am a busy congregational rabbi whose desk was always covered with papers, and whose stress level was always high. Kevin has taught me to be an organized person. My desk is clean and my stress level is down. He is a bargain compared to those providing similar coaching on "getting things done." Factor in the fact that you will succeed with Kevin and Priacta (how much have you spent on books or courses that did not help?) and you'll see that hiring Kevin is the best money you can spend.”
Eliminated My Stress
“My stress level ... was quite high. TRO has eliminated that stress and given me a way to achieve my goals at work and at home.”
The TRO Method is Brilliant
“The TRO method is brilliant. It is the best online training website I ever came across. That was nearly a decade ago, and still it is unsurpassed in my experience.”
TRO was a Life Changing Process for Me
“Kevin was the first person to make time management work for me. He showed me that it was more than just cleaning your office. It is a system using technology. Priacta's TRO was a life changing process for me. I have never looked at task management the same again. If you are feeling overwhelmed by your work, call Priacta!”
Got the Results That Were Promised
“Exceptionally service oriented, Kevin took the time to ensure I got the results that were promised.”
Highest Recommendation, Life Changing
“I give my highest recommendation for Kevin Crenshaw.... He deeply understands process, leadership, responsible delegation, and day-to-day pitfalls that keep a manager from performing at their highest level. His advice and systems are, quite literally, life changing. Since I hired him, I am substantially more efficient in managing and delegating tasks, have a holistic top down view of what I am choosing to work on (and why), and feel relaxed and on top of things.”
“I am loving it! All the little things I knew about organization now make sense.”
Cuts Through the Blather
“Cuts through a whole mountain of time management consultant blather.”
Used to Jump from Tool to Tool
“I used to jump from tool to tool. But now I have learned that the system is much more important. I am getting more done and fewer things areslipping through the cracks.”
Transformed a School—Results Were Miraculous
“I hired Kevin Crenshaw as a professional organization, time-management, and productivity coach while working as the Director of Education for a small private school for troubled teen boys. The challenges we faced were great. The challenges of running an education program are overwhelming enough. Throw in 30 to 40 openly disrespectful teenage boys and it can seem impossible.Immediately after each coaching session with Kevin, we implemented his suggestions. The results were miraculous. Through the direct implementation of Kevin's advice, we were able to transform our school from a non-accredited program that used paper correspondence courses as our main curriculum to a fully networked computer and internet based school system accredited through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. I cannot express enough the impact Kevin had on our ability to achieve these lofty goals. The accreditation process took almost two years. It would have been impossible to achieve without the implementation of the techniques I learned from Kevin. He may now know the indirect impact he had on my student's lives, but impact them he did. He helped us structure the foundation upon which we build our school system. He changed the way we organized our projects, choose which tasks to complete each day, and even how we communicated with each other. I am forever grateful to Kevin for the work he has done. I hope to continue to learn from his expertise well into the future. Thank you for all you've done Kevin. Thank you.”
