This two-day workshop is a perfect fit for anyone who wants to develop their ability to proactively create and achieve a simplified and highly productive working environment.
Our lives are becoming ever more complex. We seem to have more to do and never enough time to do it all. We have practically unlimited real time connectivity, and an expectation that we are contactable 24/7. Much of what is put in place to make our work environment better actually has the opposite effect and adds even more complexity to our workday:
• Endless initiatives to help us do more with less
• IT systems that we need to spend time learning how to use, before they will help us
• Policies, procedures, regulations and legislation to keep us safe, secure and consistent
We find ourselves making more decisions, about more things, with not a lack of information, but with too much information. Emails, news feeds, updates, phone calls, interruptions, the need to search for files, facts and information, and meetings, all contribute to the complexity of our work life. With all of this, how much of our day is truly productive? What can we do?
The answer, while it may seem counter-intuitive, is simplification. Do less to achieve more, slow down to go faster.
This workshop will be highly practical. It will involve drawing on experiences, issues and positive examples from your place of work. You will build your own personal 8-point action plan that you take away and start to work with immediately. The techniques we will cover in this workshop are equally applicable in your home and work environments.
At the end of this seminar, you will have:
• The tools to understand where much of the complexity in your work environment is coming from
• The means and confidence to take action and to bring some simplification to your work and your life
