Workplace Communication Frustrations Solved.

All you need is an Ally.

Working in a modern agency comes with great flexibility.

Modern communication tools, like email, instant messaging, and project management apps, have revolutionized how agencies work -- allowing great creative work to be done practically anywhere at anytime.

But unfortunately, that flexibility can lead to working everywhere and all the time.

When used incorrectly these same communication tools completely dissolve the boundary between personal and professional life, making it hard to unplug from work, and lead to feeling "always-on" -- where everywhere is the office and and hour is a working hour.

Left on its own, feeling always-on leads to stress and frustration due overwhelming inboxes, long nights working, weekend workdays, lack of sleep, and interrupted vacations.

The challenge (and opportunity) is to leverage the benefits of electronic communication without sacrificing balance and well-being.

Your agency has already adopted powerful tech tools, now you need solid workplace workflows and guidelines -- that clearly communicate best practices, boundaries, and expectations -- to help everyone work efficiently and effectively.

I'm the lady you call when you're ready to fix your workplace communication frustrations.

Hi, I'm Ada, your cheerful OperationsAlly!

Ada Barlatt, Ph.D.

Operations & Systems Expert

I'm a fun loving, freedom-seeking tech pro who geeks out over systems and loves creating ease with technology.

I have been studying the science of making things better my whole life. I passionately believe technology can create greater flow and more balance in our lives - if we use it wisely.

I help agencies, just like yours, design and implement impactful workflows and guidelines. The guidelines we create promote both wellness and productivity -- protecting your team's wellbeing and the company's bottom line. After adopting the new guidelines everyone will feel more productive, more balanced and less overwhelmed.

When you work with me, we'll uncover your team's electronic communication dysfunctions, bad habits, and blind spots, and use that information to develop guidelines that put the control back in your hands -- to create a sense of ease, increase productivity and protect your team's life balance.
