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 3-hour workshop, you will...

  • Learn how to balance your activity types and prioritize effectively to make sure important things are getting done.
  • Explore what focus really means, how to achieve it and how to avoid common pitfalls in doing so.
  • Review strategies for minimizing interruptions.
  • Understand the value of making more of your work visible.
  • Refine your strategy for using your communication tools.
  • Gain clarity on the psychological biases that compromise effective communication strategies.
  • Learn a tool for avoiding personal multi-tasking.
  • Understand the impact of role clarity on team focus (and how to push for greater clarity).
  • Explore the first steps to improving meeting culture and effectiveness in service of everyone's focus and flow.
  • Reflect with teammates on specific challenges affecting your daily work.
  • Formulate an action plan coming out of the workshop to ensure you get immediate value from the learning.

This workshop is deliverable as a single, 3-hour block (with multiple breaks) or as three, 1-hour blocks over multiple days.

I liked putting words to things I have experienced in the past and knowing I am not the only one feeling that way. The dopamine hits was an 'aha' moment for me. The 5Ps for meetings was also really great and is part of the concrete actions that I will take going forward. Do you want to learn how to be more productive? Take this workshop!

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 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 liked the tips on how to calendar and become more focused. And you provided great atmosphere and pacing throughout. Putting tasks on the prioritization grid made me realize that I can have more control by listing them out and focusing on what needs to be done by prioritizing them. This course is a great refresher and gives tooling on how to focus at work and feel the flow.

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.
