Productivity advice is ubiquitous, but also far too generic to be useful. Books and courses tend to focus on ‘one size fits all’ solutions that clearly don’t fit anyone 100%.
This workshop focuses on establishing what it is to be productive for you, in your work context. We explore the common productivity traps we can fall into, we cover the benefits of planning and how to create an impactful and efficient productivity workflow that suits your working style.
With demands for our attention coming from all directions, understanding where we should direct our attention and energy is a critical skill. If we do’t set our own priorities, someone else will! So this workshop focuses on both the tactical, day -to-day prioritisation of tasks, but also the strategic prioritisation of how we invest our limited time, attention and energy.
The Proactivity Habit
We all procrastinate from time to time, pushing important tasks into tomorrow, for our future selves to deal with. It’s an unproductive and unsustainable habit, yet we can easily keep telling ourselves that it’s not a problem!
This workshop is designed to give delegates the skills required to replace procrastination with a proactive perspective. We look at the root cause of procrastination and how to persist at tasks through to completion – despite how we feel about them.
A core skill for team leaders and managers, delegation frees them up to focus where their skills and experience are best used. However, delegation can either be ignored as an option or poorly executed while we’re stuck in the habit of ‘busy’. This workshop explores what prevents us from delegating and shares a simple but effective approach to identify work to be delegated, while also considering who to delegate it to.
