Add to CPD Planner


Today’s work environment is an increasingly busy one with technology adding to the hectic pace by its non-stop bombardment of requests.

Conflicting demands and a myriad of other pressures often result in increased stress and the important jobs not being completed. However, there are skills and techniques that you can learn to help you to be more effective, stay focused and handle the pressure and heavy workloads. There is truth in the cliché “working smarter” if you know how.

This one-day workshop will provide you with powerful practical techniques, covering:

  • Why important things often don’t get done on time, and what to do about it
  • Five ways to increase productivity that almost no one ever uses
  • The four proven ways to keep yourself and your staff motivated to consistently work at the highest level
  • How to avoid feeling stressed out – even though your “to do” list is endless
  • The three time management techniques that you’re not using that are critical to your success
  • How to know and avoid what is a poor use or waste of your time
  • How to set goals that excite you, and how to guarantee they actually get done
  • Three ways to elicit help and cooperation from other people
  • The smart things to do with the extra time you’ll have when you’re on top of it all.

Learning objectives

In this one-day, fast paced and fun workshop, you will learn how to:

  • Get the truly important work done which tends to be put off or never completed.
  • Handle heavy workloads with greater ease, efficiency, and effort.
  • Manage yourself and others to stay motivated, focused, and productive over a long period of time.
  • Take more time to relax since you’ll finally be “on top of it all”.


This workshop will include a mix of lecture, exercises, and group interaction.
