“Having lost sight of our goals, we redouble our efforts”
- Mark Twain
The problem of busyness:
Activity is often confused with productivity. Busyness and working harder do not always lead to significant accomplishments; instead, they tend to lead toward mediocre results, burnout and frustration. During this workshop participants will learn the art of accomplishing more with less unnecessary effort.
A focus on short-term and long-term results:
- Less busyness and less wasted effort for better results
- More focus and energy
- Innovative and authentic solutions to business strategy and communication issues
- The power of less: mindfulness practices resulting in more focus, more flexibility
- Doing less of what is extra; more of what matters
- Beyond time management and productivity management – learning to manage your state of mind
- Develop structure and routines to enhance responsiveness and flexibility
- Less assumptions lead to more feedback, collaboration, innovation
How participants learn
