Event description


Early Bird Discounted Registration Ends: Oct 10, 2019

Registration Ends: Oct 16, 2019

Course Overview:

We live in a world where we are flooded with emails and instant messages, our calendars are filling up and an environment filled with distractions.

We are consistently busy, but we lack the sense that we are focused on the right things. Home life suffers, at the mercy of the demands of our professional lives, and vice versa.

  • Is it possible to achieve what we want personally and professionally without working more hours?

  • Can increased productivity really go hand-in-hand with lower stress levels?

Getting Things Done® (GTD®) is David Allen's proven path for getting in control of your world and maintaining perspective in your life. You will increase your productivity while maintaining a clear mind and the confidence that you are consistently focused on the right things.

You have flexibility to attend one or both days: the Fundamentals course and the Implementation workshops. Day 1 is a pre-requisite for Day 2.

Day 1 (Oct 21, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm): GTD Fundamentals Course.

The 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, engage 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

  • Getting email under control

  • Delegating and tracking deliverables appropriately

  • Creating a functioning reference system

  • Breaking through procrastination

  • Managing priorities effectively
