This activity-based, half-day Taking Productivity to the Next Level training course explores two main ideas: how do people make choices about how they spend their time? And how can they ‘get in flow’ to maximise their productivity in the time that they have?

The myth of multi-tasking will be exploded and replaced with mindfulness – enabling focus in the moment. Participants will explore how mindfulness can be applied to problem solving, conflict management and empathy – leading to greater understanding, faster results and greater harmony.

The research of psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, the father of ‘flow’, will be used to give participants the tools to get in a flow state where their productivity is optimised.

Mindfulness and flow are fantastic tools and ways of being, but when should someone use them? The course looks at the other major impact on productivity; time - how to decide what to spend it on?

Participants will leave an action packed half-day with both tools and strategies to optimise their productivity.

We use secure Video Conferencing with interactive features such as live polling, screen sharing, whiteboards, live chat and breakout sessions. Please discuss your preferred platform, most commonly we use Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business, Webex or Zoom upon request. 

These courses are facilitated in English, and are open to people from different industries across the USA, New Zealand, Australia,  Singapore, Malaysia and Hong Kong - this is a short but powerful learning experience that gives you global collaboration opportunities. Our trainers and processes have been refined to give you a personalised learning experience where it is specifically targeted to your needs.

Foreword:

Maximizing Productivity, Proactivity and Quality

In this half-day, workshop-style training session we explore the concept of "Multi-tasking" and how a better approach to improving productivity is to replace 'multi-tasking' with 'mindfulness' and focus on being 'in the moment'.

Next we explore the concept of 'flow' and how to best align yourself with being 'in the flow' when conducting work-related tasks.  The lesson touches on how managers can improve the 'flow' of their team members.

Finally we consider on the concept of 'time' and how to avoid procrastination while focusing on, and developing priorities, which aid in maximising both personal and team-based productivity while improving the quality of outcomes at the same time.

PD Training's new signature series program - Productive People Advantage brings together the best activity-based learning, incorporates practical workplace tools, and leverages the latest research in neuroscience, psychometric profiling and emotional intelligence in new ways to develop and measure previously elusive to target or measure capabilities.

In collaboration with our clients, trainers, participants across the globe and our research & development partners (The OrgDev Institute and Leading Dimensions Consulting), PD Training has developed Productive People Advantage (PPA), designed for the needs of today to prepare your people and organisation to have a sustainable advantage tomorrow.

In conjunction with the other PPA courses, this helps give people and organisations a competitive advantage through more productive people.

Client Site Training We’ll focus on what matters most to you and tailor to your context


Live Online or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

We use secure Video Conferencing such as Microsoft Teams or Zoom on request that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people dialling in, and some people physically together in the same room.
