PRODUCTIVITY TRAINING

Productivity management workshops to increase performance 

Distraction and Interruption Management

Most organizations today are caught up in a tide of distraction and devices that are draining performance and driving a host of unproductive habits, from nonstop messaging, to false urgency, and attention deficit trait.

The chief productivity tool, attention, suffers when your team can't think or focus, only react. Some 91% of Americans say they delete work emails without fully reading them, while 60% are having trouble focusing on the task at hand as interruptions erode attention spans. 

We Build a More Effective Work Style

Our Productivity Management programs help you take back the office from devices, distractions, and unbounded interruptions. We make adjustments to rote work style that are actually based on something productive—the research, not reflex.

Your team learns how to manage demands, instead of the other way around, solve challenges, and think before they act. They get strategies, from interruption management, to setting the terms of engagement with devices, to qualifying urgency, and shutting down the "crazy" of crazy-busy: time panic.

The goal is full engagement, absorption in the task at hand, which brings more control over the work environment, less stress, better results, and more satisfaction with the finished product.
