Curtis James – Director, People Who Do
April 12th – Brighton
Optimise productivity and efficiency and increase your capacity for creative thinking and doing.
Finding the space to be creative is harder than ever. Modern working practices mean we juggle diverse work loads whilst fielding increasing interruptions from email, tweets, text, phone, letters and colleagues.
This practical workshop walks you through a brilliantly simple and straight forward framework before supporting you in actively implementing best practice there and then. The framework is designed to be habit forming: fading into the background of your work and freeing your brain to focus on what really makes a difference.
During the workshop you will build a unique personal productivity system that keeps you focused, and optimises your time, task, email and project management freeing up space to be creative. You will actively review all your current activities giving consideration to every live task and project before constructing your own productivity system. You can choose to extend the course with a series of 121 telephone mentoring in the weeks following the workshop to help you adopt the new working practices (not included in the workshop fee).
The ability to access your email to do lists and calendar (eg via a laptop) during the workshop is useful and helps with immediate application of the learning.
By the end of the workshop you will:
• Understand what increases productivity
• Have developed a sustainable framework to make permanent improvements to your work
• Review all your live tasks and projects
• Implement a full personal productivity system
• Have rediscovered space for creative work
• Have gained a renewed sense of control over your work and life
• Feel highly motivated to move forward across all your projects.
Who should attend?
Anyone who feels the pressure of time and believes they could get more from themselves. Anyone who finds that being creative and doing work are not one and the same. For those interested, an option to extend the workshop with 121 mentoring sessions is available.
The workshop is led by:
