Melbourne: Getting Things Done GTD Fundamentals & Implementation Workshop

Learn the best practices for Stress-Free Productivity with our Getting Things Done (GTD) Fundamentals Course with Implementation Workshop

About this Event

Early Bird Discounted Registration Ends: Nov 13, 2020

Registration Ends: Nov 19, 2020

Course Overview:

We live in a world where we are reactive as we are flooded with emails and instant messages, busy calendars and distractive environment.

We are consistently busy, however, there is a overwhelming worry we may be missing something that will fall through the cracks and haunt us. Personal life suffers due to 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 (Dec 1, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm): GTD Fundamentals Course.

The GTD Fundamentals course is delivered using engaging lectures, animated videos, 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.
