Are your work days busy yet unproductive? Do you struggle to make progress on your most important projects? Do you have so much on your plate that you’re having a hard time setting priorities? Want to discover how simple yet powerful changes in your daily routine, habits, and mindset can enable you to get more traction on the tasks that count?
This workshop is for professionals whose work environment demands a high level of self-direction, agility, and creativity such as project managers, knowledge-workers, entrepreneurs, and creatives. You will learn to apply principles from design, agile and entrepreneurial thinking to cultivate laser-like focus, gain more control over your day and increase your productivity. This one-day workshop blends practical insights and tools with a powerful reflection into your individual habits, beliefs, and processes.
The workshop starts by enabling you to identify your value-adding work and distinguish it from support activities. You will also uncover hidden distractions (beyond the obvious, such as social media), non-value-adding habits and dysfunctional beliefs that are deeply ingrained in your daily routine. Armed with a deep understanding of your unique process, a second series of exercises enables you to apply individual prioritization strategies, articulate SMART goals, break large tasks into manageable steps and, most importantly, learn to effectively manage your time, energy and attention within your unique work environment.
At the end of the day, you will have a deep understanding of how you work and be armed with the tools and mindset to continually optimize your productive process and be an agile problem-solver and thinker.
