Event description


Course Overview:

Getting Things Done® (GTD®) is David Allen's proven path for getting in control of your world and maintaining perspective in your life.

This first level in the Mastering Workflow Series builds the foundation for you to put GTD® into play—at work, at home, and in everything you do. You’ll learn critical principles and techniques for gaining and staying in control, day to day.

The key result on this level is stability.

There are two components to build your success at each level in the series–the course and the follow-up workshops.

This course is conducted over 2 days giving attendees flexibility to attend one or both days.

Day 1 is focusing on the Fundamentals of Level 1 and is a pre-requisite for Day 2.

Day 2 is focusing on installing the system with the help of Installation and Implementation lab.

Day 1 (May 1st, 9:00 am to 5:30 pm): Mastering Workflow Level 1 Fundamentals course.

This one day Fundamentals course includes engaging lectures, clever animated videos sharing the best practices, hands-on exercises, group discussions, and Trainer demonstrations.

This course instils the critical distinctions of the five steps of workflow mastery: capture, clarify, organize, reflect, and engage. It focuses on the need to capture all potentially meaningful inputs into trusted tools, the executive decisions required to clarify what those captured items mean and generate actions and outcomes, the primary and discreet categories for organizing information and reminders, the process for consistent orientation reviews of life and work, and how to optimize your system to make priority choices.

What’s Covered in the Course:

  • Capturing “stuff” into external locations

  • Processing “IN” to empty consistently

  • Applying the two-minute rule

  • Making decisions when things show up vs. when they blow up

  • Tracking actions contextually vs. unworkable daily to-do lists
