We’re on a mission to solve the most common problem in the workplace—teams are drowning in work and burnt out because they’re working in ways that are unsustainable and inefficient.

By combining tried-and-true productivity principles with modern collaboration tools, we help teams of all sizes come up for air, eliminate waste, increase profits, and create a better workplace culture.

Our Clients' Success

$60M CONTRACT WIN

“Thanks to the way we now use Asana, we were able to win a bid for a $60 million contract. The client was blown away by our organized and professional process.  It has truly transformed our business.”

20% INCREASE IN PRODUCTIVITY

“Leverage has been a game-changer for us. Without their advice and support in implementing Slack, the pandemic would have been chaotic.”

$700,000 ANNUAL BUSINESS-WIDE SAVINGS

“I used to have a three-hour meeting with my assistant each week to keep track of everything in my business. Now, I can get a 10-15 minute update from Asana and I know where everything is at any given time. I can offer assistance, I can prioritize, and I can de-prioritize.”

Our Process

We serve as consultants for teams looking to get the most out of their collaboration tools. Our process provides immediate upfront time-savings so teams can quickly come up for air, then focuses on more long-term efficiency improvements.

Step 1: Email

We start by optimizing email—the most frequently used tool by far—to quickly save time and get you out of your inbox. Learn how to get to "Inbox Zero," a method that saves many of our clients 5+ hours per week.

Step 2: Internal Communication

Next, we outline a clear system for communication. Optimizing internal communication tools like Slack and Microsoft Teams improves collaboration, enhances company culture, saves time, and makes information easier to find.

Step 3: Work Management

Work management tools like Asana are the missing link that help drowning teams come up for air by organizing and prioritizing all their work. These tools also increase transparency, collaboration and set clear ownership of work.

Step 4: Documentation

We help you document processes and knowledge with the right tools, so work can always continue and everyone can quickly find what they need. A key step that mitigates risk and sets teams up for long-term efficiency gains.

The CPR™ Framework

We help teams maximize their performance and reduce overwhelm by teaching and implementing the foundational principles of the CPR® Business Efficiency Framework.

This Framework eliminates the pain points most teams experience by optimizing the three operational areas foundational to every organization:

All Organizations need:
Regardless of size or industry, all organizations need to Communicate with their team and external parties; Plan and manage the work that needs to get done; and document all of their proprietary Resources and knowledge to ensure the business runs like a well-oiled machine.

Leverage implements the CPR Framework by educating teams on when and how to use the common tools within each component in the best ways possible.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Reviews

Marissa Andrada

Culture Thought Leader, Independent Board Director at Krispy Kreme Donuts, and Former CHRO of Chipotle Mexican Grill ​​

“The CPR® Framework is a simple, repeatable guide for aligning teams and organizations that drives immediate results and creates sustainable, meaningful change by empowering all people to utilize their full talents and catalyze new ideas. It’s the foundation for building a resilient organization that will enable companies to successfully navigate through uncertain times now and in the future.”

Nicole Story

SVP of Marketing & Creative at Pourri​​   “Leverage has been a game-changer for us. Without their advice and support in implementing Slack, the pandemic would have been chaotic.”

Jon Levy

Behavioral Scientist and New York Times Bestselling Author ​​   “I’ve spent my life creating a community of Nobel laureates, Olympians, CEOs, celebrities, and scientists—so when it came time to design our system it had to be both flawless and human. That’s where Nick Sonnenberg excels. He obsesses over the right technologies and habits that ensured my team was effective and my community was taken care of. That’s why, after almost a decade, I still work with him.”

Marc J. Bodner

CEO of L&R Distributors​​   “Thanks to the way we now use Asana, we were able to win a bid for a $60 million contract. The client was blown away with our organized and professional process. It has truly transformed our business.”

Bo Kimbrough

Founder & CEO of Skyepoint Decisions   “I used to have a three-hour meeting with my assistant each week to keep track of everything in my business. Now, I can get a 10-15 minute update from Asana and I know where everything is at any given time. I can offer assistance, I can prioritize, and I can de-prioritize.”

Anthony Crissie

Former COO of LineDrive   “We probably gave everybody somewhere in the neighborhood of two to three hours of their day back. Just because they’re checking their email less frequently and they’re not living out of their inbox.”

Blake Eastman

CEO of The Nonverbal Group   “Personally, I was stubborn and thought I did things the wrong way. Sitting down with Nick and his team, they showed me these little things that compound. Something saves five minutes, another saves ten minutes, and across my organization we’re all of a sudden saving hundreds of hours per month.”

Meet Nick Sonnenberg

Nick Sonnenberg is an entrepreneur, author, Inc. columnist, and guest lecturer at Columbia University. Before founding Leverage, he spent eight years working as a high-frequency trader on Wall Street where he developed a love for (and obsession with) efficiency.

The CPR® Business Efficiency Framework is the culmination of Nick’s unique perspective on the value of time, efficiency, and automation that he’s developed over nearly a decade of working with teams of all sizes and across all industries. It consistently results in greater output, less stress, happier employees, and the potential to gain an extra full day per week in productivity per person—just by using the right tools in the right way, at the right time.
