Zena Everett's Biography

Zena Everett is an international leadership coach and sought-after speaker on leadership and organisational productivity.  Productivity isn’t about working more hours; it’s about having a laser focus on the tasks that matter then executing them without distraction. Zena delivers a range of masterclasses and keynotes on the subject.

Zena has introduced the concept of the Lawn Mower Leader who clears the path to productivity.  How many of your managers clear complexity rather than add to it?  If your teams say they have so much to do that they can’t get anything done, then book Zena to cure their crazy busyness and make them happier and more productive.

Crazy Busy is an engaging, highly interactive talk that will blow up the roadblocks to personal and team productivity.  After it, your schedule will reflect your values and priorities and your time will be focused on tasks that move the needle.  Crazy Busy is crammed with practical solutions and new models and ideas to accelerate workflow, boost team communication, cluster distractions, manage curveballs, track meeting efficiency, stop ‘switch-tasking’ (what you thought was multi-tasking) and focus your attention.  You’ll become like a lion, and only chase high value antelopes, not low value ‘fieldmice’ activities like emails and meetings.  Suitable for all, including leaders, perfectionists and procrastinators.

Zena is the author of ‘The Crazy Busy Cure: A productivity book for people with no time for productivity books’ (July 2021), which has been shortlisted for the Business Book Awards 2022. This book is for anyone battling with feeling busy, overwhelmed and unproductive. She provides readers with practical tips to help focus, fight distractions and to find more head space.
