These Building Better Work Habits training course materials have been developed for everyone in your organisation who may struggle with their own personal effectiveness. They may not have control of their own workload or blame others as to why they’re not achieving certain tasks and projects. Alternatively, it might be that high performers want to understand how they can organise themselves in a new way to give themselves more stretch in their roles.
The training course will help the learners build self-awareness and will highlight the important parts of working smarter to achieve end goals.
Training course contents:
We are all busy, and sometimes it seems we do not have enough hours in the day to complete deadlines and projects. It can then eat into our home life, meaning we often end up stressed, or in worst case scenarios, unwell (both physically and mentally). The reason behind this is often how we work day to day, as opposed to others giving us work at the last minute.
These training course materials have been designed to help your participants work more effectively for the long term. This isn’t about how to manage a diary or emails, but rather look closely to see what are the blockers which get in the way of success. These small changes in day to day work will have a dramatic impact in both productivity and personal effectiveness.
Why is running this building better work habits course a good idea?
Well, just imagine if your participants were better able to:
- Understand that urgent and important tasks aren’t always the same thing
- Get the big tasks done first in their workday before getting swallowed up in admin and phonecalls
- Manage their mindset; being willing and open to learn and put the effort in
- Keep focused on the task in hand and not working in a scatter gun approach
- Have clarity of their goals and what they want to achieve
- Limit procrastination to work smarter
Ultimately these training course materials allow you to nurture a workforce that is better able to work smarter and accomplish both personal and company objectives in an efficient and timely manner.
