Do you find yourself or your team constantly busy, but not achieving as much as you’d like? Are you, or others in your team, struggling to deliver on commitments and constantly stressed out? Do your people feel buried under emails, WeChat messages and meetings that once they finish the day, they wonder if they’ve accomplished anything at all?

If you or your team feel the crush of work overload, over-commitment, distractions, interruptions, and anxiety that comes from too much to do; if you want to find a better way to boost your career or balance life and work, Getting Things Done® (GTD®) methodology is for you.

Session Outline

In this world-class course you will learn how to:
  • Capture everything that requires a decision into a leak-proof system;
  • Decide what captured input means and what needs to be done about it;
  • Create trusted organizational categories for tracking projects, actions, and reference;
  • Develop supportive clear and up-to-date processes on a regular basis
  • Execute trusted choices on what to do—including breaking through procrastination and effectively managing priorities. 
Who should attend?
Senior executives, senior or middle managers who have multiple projects, staff and stakeholders to manage. Individuals who wish to give a boost to their career, reduce their stress-level, be more focused and productive, or just find a way to better balance work and life.
