Increasing Your Productivity

Developing goals and habits for enhanced performance in work and life

Delivered online in real time

The challenging “new normal” we face in work and in life requires us to be more productive when working in unfamiliar situations—remotely from home, on virtual teams, or in offices with new guidelines for working together. In these situations, productivity is not about getting everything done in limited time. Rather, it means making the best decisions about what goals and activities will lead to the best results, and using our energies wisely to accomplish them proactively.

In this program, you will learn how to be more efficient and resilient in the ways you approach productivity. Develop clear and measurable goals you can realistically reach. Create a practical plan to balance and manage your work and life demands. Practice new techniques for increasing your focus, energy, agility and stamina.

The program employs a personalized learning format that offers smart options without prescribing one-size-fits-all solutions. You will create your own customized productivity action plan by exploring a wide range of productivity options and selecting the ones that work best for you.

We recommend taking this program in conjunction with Time Management Skills.

Online program format

During this two-day program, you will participate in a number of instructor-led sessions delivered online. Sessions are highly interactive, enabling you to network with peers, brainstorm ideas, practice new skills in virtual breakout rooms and receive constructive feedback (ample breaks are provided for you to recharge your learning energies.) You will also have access to activities, checklists and templates that you can review at any time. 

“Gail is a tremendous instructor who can read the room and customize your learning on the go. She also teaches in a fascinating way that allows you to instantly start using what you've learned in order to become more productive.”
