Despite our best intentions, it’s all too easy to get distracted. It might be a notification on screen, a noise in our work environment or a persistent thought that simply won’t go away. This workshop is all about developing a ‘focus muscle’ that allows us to direct our attention with intent. We’ll look at some effective focus-building habits, as well as ways to minimise the distractions that trip you up.
Productive at Home
Whether it’s an occasional day at home, a regular number of days or a permanent way of work, many more employees are benefitting from home working. This session has been designed to cover the essentials of home working, to support employees to maintain their focus, while also nurturing their wellbeing. We’ll cover the practicalities of home-working, the importance of communication and the benefits of routine and structure, so the focus can be on outputs – not where the work takes place.
While it’s common to hear people discuss their work-life ‘balance’, we prefer to look at this important aspect of life another way – the challenges in integrating all of our roles into an intentional and manageable way of working and living. Work is part of life and feelings of ‘balance’ are only very temporary. Instead, it’s an ongoing and dynamic area of focus. In this session, we look at how to get clarity on your life’s roles and invest in them in a way that’s both meaningful and realistic.
Dealing with Overwhelm
Even the most organised of us will feel overwhelmed from time to time. And this is because we’re not in total control of the work and other demands life throws at us. In this session, we’ll explore how we automatically respond to overwhelm, how it impacts our thinking and behaviour, and some alternatives to deal with the situation more effectively.
