Be More Effective at Work

Be More Effective – Business Workshop

Efficiency leads to extraordinary differences between what different nations and individuals can do with the same amount of that always-finite resource: time. 

The consequence of an absence of efficiency isn’t just inefficiency. It is, to put it bluntly, regret. Yet the never-ending to do list and multiple demands from others can make it surprisingly difficult to sort the urgent tasks from the merely important, let alone get them done. 

In this workshop we draw on philosophy and psychology to ask why being productive can be so hard. We discuss practical strategies that help us choose smart goals, beat procrastination and cope with stress. We learn to foster the conditions for creativity on a daily basis, and we find the inspiration and persistence to recognise and make the changes that actually matter. 

 In this CPD accredited workshop, we learn:

•How to boost efficiency by optimising when, where and how we work

•How to avoid distractions

•How to break rules in the name of efficiency

•How to develop smart systems to make efficiency a habit


Bringing together the expertise of entrepreneurs, psychologists, thought leaders and CEOs, and drawing upon The School of Life’s unique expertise in cultivating emotional intelligence, our Business School workshops will equip you with the tools and strategies needed to thrive in the modern workplace.
