The world of work seems to be moving faster and faster every day. Is it possible to keep up with the rapid pace and still be stress free? Yes, it is! This workshop will present productive strategies for workplace success based in part on the book, Getting Things Done® by David Allen. Learn powerful methods for managing commitments, information, and communication that are the gold standard for personal and organizational efficiency.  Discover concrete solutions for transforming uncertainty into an integrated system of stress-free productivity.

Learn how to:

  • Capture anything and everything that has your attention and concern
  • Redefine actionable items into concrete next steps and clear outcomes
  • Organize information in the most streamlined way, based on how and when you need to access it
  • Make trusted choices about what to do in any given moment
