The end result of an absence of efficiency isn’t just inefficiency, it’s regret. In order to work through the never-ending to-do list and juggle the multiple demands of others, we have to sort the urgent tasks from the merely important and make a habit of being efficient.

More About the Workshop
In this two-hour session, 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.
What characterises mastery of this skill?
The effective employee is characterised by getting things done and making good use of time. They feel comfortable trusting their team and colleagues to do delegated work correctly. Setting priorities and giving clear instructions as well as taking and giving feedback come naturally for them.
What characterises a lack of this skill?
A lack of effectiveness can often be observed in junior employees who struggle to say “no”. More experienced employees might reveal their lack of Effectiveness by having difficulties in task delegation. Both groups might feel overwhelmed and overworked, relying on long hours and unnecessary micromanagement. A lack of effectiveness can end in exhaustion or burnout.
‘The most effective way to do it is to do it.’ — Amelia Earhart

We generally do not allow filming of any of our live events, as our workshops are a safe space and this would likely inhibit the feeling of safety and privacy required by attendees in order to participate fully. Our goal is always to create the very best experience for our participants, and for that we try to preserve the closed nature of the sessions.
Due to the nature of the material covered in our Workshops, we find that smaller group sizes help everyone to feel relaxed and get the most out of participating, so we have a maximum group size of 30 participants per workshop. If you are looking to engage a large number of people at once, our Talks can be delivered to audiences of any size; and as such they act as a great introduction to The School of Life for Business.
