Learn to work effectively

At the end of a working day, it is sometimes hard to see what we have actually accomplished. Taking a course in time management may teach you to be more efficient, but not more effective. Effectivity means getting the things done that really matter to you, not mindlessly checking off all the items on your to-do list. In this workshop, you will develop effectiveness by becoming a better decision maker and by learning how to distinguish what’s truly relevant from what’s not.

In this workshop, we will:

  • Consider what makes getting things done difficult, including emotional and psychological barriers
  • Learn specific ways to adapt our approach to the task at hand.
  • Look at strategies to prioritise tasks and make realistic, more effective plans of action.
  • Discuss habits and techniques which can help us to beat procrastination, take tactical ‘shortcuts’ and reassess our overall aims.
  • Learn how to make the most of feedback in order to become more effective.
