Description

It’s a competitive world. Success and its rewards go to those who make things happen. Talent, hard work and determination are important but alone they are not enough – they need to be converted into results. And that is a challenge when there is so much ‘stuff’ that gets in the way of real work. By ‘stuff’ I mean the daily deluge of emails, voicemails, meetings, conference calls, instant messages, colleagues stopping by for a chat, presentations … of course, they have a purpose but it can sometimes feel like real work has to be squeezed into the gaps.

And it’s not likely to get any better as technology generates ever-increasing amounts of data, requiring even more meetings and consultations with colleagues, customers and suppliers. It’s little wonder that I recently heard someone say:

“I’m going home so that I can get some work done.”

In this kind of environment, you can easily lose focus, become demotivated and procrastinate. Your energy levels drop, relationships suffer and productivity plummets. Your talent is wasted.

Or, you can thrive.

If you are focused and organized with a proactive and resilient mindset, you can make things happen while others struggle. You can take advantage of opportunities and minimize threats before others even realise they exist. You can be the solution-focused, problem-solver rather than the finger-pointing, complainer. Above all, you can deliver results that get you noticed – and promoted or take your business to the next level.

The purpose of this course is to help you to develop that productive edge.

Ultimate Productivity is based on the latest academic research, enhanced by feedback from participants on face-to-face training programs and hundreds of one-to-one coaching conversations.

Our course, unlike many others, does not ‘tell’ you how to be productive; there is no one universal best approach to productivity. You (your personality, emotional triggers, thinking processes, aspirations) and your situation (resources, targets, relationships) are unique and you cannot simply copy-and-paste what works for someone else. You need to custom-design your own approach. That’s why, instead, we provide you with a framework. Sure, we will make lots of suggestions and provide examples of what works for others, but our emphasis is always on helping you to find and implement your solution.

If you have tried other productivity systems, you will probably agree that the planning and design stages are the easiest. It’s putting them into action where it gets hard; humans can always find a reason why they shouldn’t do what they know they should do. That’s why we focus just as much on developing the right mindset as on how you handle your task list.

Right now you can put an end to the frustrations that get in the way of you producing your best work. Imagine how you will feel as you confidently and efficiently deal with all the minutiae that weigh down other people, leaving yourself free to focus on what really matters.

Joining the Ultimate Productivity course will provide you with a step-by-step process to develop the systems and mindset that enable you to deliver results and achieve the career or business success you desire
