Productivity in the New Normal: Effective Workload Management
1:00PM to 5:00PM
Two 4-hour session
About the course
Time management has always been an elusive skill to master. Our to-do lists are never fully ticked off and tend to multiply by midday, we eat rushed meals at our worktables, we jump from one meeting to the other, write endless reports, please countless clients, ward off (or sometimes give in) to dozens of distractions.
At the end of the day, we are left exhausted physically, mentally, end emotionally. Then we repeat everything the next day. Managing our time and productivity has become even more challenging with the current Covid crisis and the transition to the new normal – from working from home to managing our family’s new activities and routines (hello online schooling!).
In this course, we will take a breather, step back, and pause. We will take the time to re-assess our priorities, re-adjust our mindsets and routines, and establish personal practices to ensure that what matters most to us gets done well – on a daily basis. We will learn tools and techniques that will help us organize our work, work smarter, maximize our time and energy, and boost our productivity to get more things done in our work and personal lives.
