Nancy Kruschke & Sara Genrich

As members of the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals, we’ve known each other for years.  At a national conference, over dinner, we discovered we had similar business models and goals for our clients.    With the synergy we felt, we started Productivity Training Academy to bring our tools and techniques online in an on-demand training format.  Our mission is to bring time management, productivity and technology training to you in a format that is easy to follow and use.  The goal for you is to be able to use our training to help you build a productivity system with the tools you need to successfully manage everything in your workplace.  Our partnership combines over 50 years of productivity experience and enables us to share our knowledge, skills, and talents with you as your guides.
