History of Zeigler Training & Development

Zeigler Learning LLC was incorporated in 1996. We have helped thousands of employees at companies around the world improve their productivity, organizational skills, presentation abilities, writing skills, leadership development, and stress management skills.

Zeigler originally developed the time management course for the Hertz Corporation in early 1997. We were commissioned to interview their employees (and those of our other corporate clients) to develop a course that would immediately help employees more efficiently handle everything that was “bombarding them from all sides every day,” at work and home.  Mr. Zeigler ultimately discovered the missing piece to Franklin’s successful time management course and system. That piece was how to organize a day/week so that you could achieve the goals you identified in their course.  He was also the pioneer of the concept of writing down not just to-do’s but also thoughts, ideas, conversations, and things you didn’t want to forget to reduce that overwhelmed feeling. That concept is called the Master List. Other popular concepts he developed were the ‘veggie principle”, the “Ringmaster”, and the “Group Power Hour” (team productivity improvement).

Since his original book he has written five more. Mr. Zeigler’s research has become the basis of many new books by well known authors. Since the original development of the course, we have updated and modified it more than 12 times over the last four years. Our changes are based participant feedback and evaluations. This seminar truly addresses today’s “real-world” productivity and work/life balance issues.

    I picked up you book Organizing for Success and it changed my life for the better. Developing my own weekly Master List has given me the ability to emphasize large project tasks and archive all my work history. This is truly an invaluable method for becoming more productive in and outside of work. Thanks for sharing your ideas!
