Personal Productivity

Course Description
Personal productivity is an interactive training that has participants identify and set SMART goals during the class. These goals will have the purpose of increasing sales, increasing service, increasing revenue, or decreasing expenses. The bottom line results of the goals will exceed the cost of the entire training event.

Employees often find themselves busy instead of productive and feel overwhelmed with the amount of tasks on their to-do lists. This training will introduce participants to current time management tips, processes, and tools to analyze and adjust activities, ensuring the highest priority behaviors and action steps toward pre-determined goals are scheduled, executed, and measured through completion. A time analysis tool will be conducted to understand where time is currently being spent and determine which tasks need to be done, deleted, delegated, or delayed.

The entire process of goal setting, time management, performance management, and motivation helps an individual or team create a goal achievement culture. It is also a holistic process, allowing participants to design and establish a healthy work/life balance and achieve their ultimate success, potential, and happiness in every area of life.
