OUR CURRENT WORK STYLE differs very much from how we managed our work a decade ago; now the tasks and duties are far too flexible and often unclear, we need to cope with constant changes and huge information flow, and with too many distractions. The “old-fashioned” time management courses do not provide a solution for these new conditions.
WE NEED A SYSTEM THAT IS FLEXIBLE ENOUGH to meet these new challenges and which saves us more time than it takes to operate it. It must be a system that we can rely on, and therefore we don’t need to keep everything in our mind and thus can become free and fully open to the present moment and to new things in front of us. Our course is derived from such a system: the Getting Things Done method (GTD) developed by the American writer David Allen. The programme will be tailored for company’s corporate practices.
PARTICIPANTS WILL GET some quick wins they can immediately use, become familiar with 4 key principles that alone make us more effective and relaxed. Those who decide to implement this system fully will enjoy how it puts order in our heads, helps us to prioritize and accomplish our tasks on time and in a stress-free manner. On the course, we will implement a few steps that allow participants to try this system out.
