Everyone has their own approach to maximizing their output. Perfecting that approach is a life-long endeavor involving constant adaptation.

In order to be more productive, we need to recapture the focus and flow we associate with doing our best work. That means breaking the cycle of endless reactivity and regaining control of what we do with our weeks.

This workshop will not only make you more productive, it will give you tools that improve your wellbeing by helping you set and manage the expectations of those around you.

We'll introduce you to our simple 3-step model for managing time and effort so you can get back to enjoying work and having the impact you desire.

In this 1.5h workshop, you will...

  • Learn how to think deliberately about the design of each day
  • Reflect on how different team members need to allocate their time including the maker versus manager schedule
  • Experience the cost of context switching and learn how to avoid it
  • Learn a tool for maximizing flow
  • Discover tools that can help you increase the quality and clarity of collaboration
  • Reflect on fresh boundaries for yourself and plan for your next step

In the extended version of this workshop, you will also...

  • Diagnose your biggest productivity challenges (and those of the team)
  • Understand what responsiveness, reliability and commitment mean in your organization
  • Explore energy drains and how to eradicate them
  • Learn how to apply a simple personal prioritization framework
  • Learn a simple framework for choosing which type of communication and collaboration methods are most effective and effective given the subject matter
  • Learn how to chunk tasks into approachable pieces of deliverable value
  • Learn how to minimize work in progress with an agile approach
  • Create a specific individual plan for optimizing your days, weeks, and months

Note: This set of outcomes can be customized for your group, budget and time allocation.

I liked this workshop because it put a name and strategy to really common problems with productivity and communication that seemed intangible to name and fix.

I thoroughly enjoyed the mindfulness and personal organization workshop. It was so nice to have some additional tips and tools for how to block out workdays and set boundaries. The facilitators were super organized, responsive and flexible.

Loved the workshop. It gave us all a chance to openly share and be vulnerable with one another around trying to be productive while working remotely during a pandemic. That was so valuable.

I thought I was too busy for this workshop but this session just saved me a couple of hundred hours of unnecessary work - so I can focus on the essentials.

This is the real secret to life - to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.
