Liberating Time Management for Leaders
If time is life, what are you doing with yours?
Time management? Forget it.
It’s a rusty relic of the Industrial Revolution. Its cheap tricks and quick hacks exhaust you in trying to get more stuff done … and never getting there. At the One Moment Company, we take a different approach. We are liberating time management for leaders.
We want to ease the burden of the working world.
We want to help leaders like you enjoy your life and have time to truly lead.
Going right to the fundamentals—the physics, philosophy, and history of time—enabled us to develop radical new principles and practices that are fit for the 21st century, for how people live and work now.
But to do that, we first had to determine what went wrong with conventional time management. We had to figure out why, despite centuries of “saving time”, the whole world is still “crazy busy”.
Using our blended expertise in strategy, consulting, accounting, depth psychology, and mindfulness, we can offer full-spectrum solutions to your problems with time.
Our conviction is that effective transformation of the human relationship with time requires two things: practical change (the outside) and a mindset shift (the inside).
And what we wish for you is simple:
A life that is time well spent.
We Start with You
Don’t forget: Getting a grip on time is not just good for you – it impacts everyone you work with.
As a leader, you are the metronome for your people. You set the strategy, budget, prioritization, deadlines, and pace for your whole organization. You also model time for others – your own time habits have a huge impact on your people. If you are spending too much time on the wrong things, everyone else is, too. Liberating time management for leaders is critical to the success and happiness of your team. At the end of the day, it starts with you.
And then your team
Time is a significant, often hidden, factor in every aspect of organizational life. from strategy and priorities to meeting time and deadlines. Failing to be proactive about your organization’s “time culture” creates and perpetuates conflict, stress, disengagement, and burnout. Isn’t it time to stop passively accepting “it’s just like that around here”?
And that means: Once we’re finished with you, we’re just getting started.
We help your team develop healthy new time practices, and we enable you to resolve business problems—how things don’t get done—that are actually being caused by a toxic time culture.

How we help
Global Pharma Business
We helped a team shift focus from everyday execution to future strategic direction.
This Finance Leader in a Global Pharma business needed his people to be more strategic. Throughout COVID, his leadership team was relentlessly focused on the short-term crisis but losing sight of the long-term vision. And his planning sessions were poorly-attended; failing to engage people. Using TimeFraming, he completely reframed the planning process as vital to the health of the organization. Far from being boring—just numbers and spreadsheets—his meetings are now full and lively, re-branded as “North Star” time. They’ve become unmissable.
Global Investment Firm
We helped this organization shift gear from “always urgent” to a more sustainable pace.
This senior leadership team was painfully aware that everyone in their business was crazy busy, with even the most routine “asks” badged as ‘urgent tasks’. This way of working had become unsustainable. We diagnosed their unique version of this universal problem. In their case: a major reorganization had left people unclear about roles and responsibilities. To compensate, team members had developed a culture where everything was treated as urgent; everyone was consulted on everything and FOMO abounded. We rapidly created and delivered training programs at scale to help them get an immediate handle on urgency. We provided 1:1 Calendar Coaching to senior leaders to get their priorities (and schedules) in order, and provided their leadership team with a new framework for clear decision-making. The result? They dialed down the compulsive urgency and breathed a sigh of relief.
Leading Environmental NGO
We helped this busy leader find the time to do his own best work and, intrigued, the team followed suit.
An Exco Member of this influential organization complained that, ironically, his working day gave him no time to work. His day was filled with meeting requests, and, in a highly collaborative organization, operating in a very open-plan office, he just didn’t get enough time to dig into the work that he loved and that only he could do. With our support, he began to use TimeFraming explicitly to set time in his day for “Work Time” … even adding this to his calendar. After a while, people began to notice these stretches of time he had blocked out and ask what he was doing in this time he called “Work Time”, to which he simply replied, “working.” This crazy idea caught on. Soon, “Working Time” became a team practice. Productivity rocketed and engagement followed.
