PPA - Taking Productivity to the Next Level

This activity-based half-day course explores two main ideas: how do people make choices about how they spend their time, and how can they ‘get in flow’ to maximise their productivity in the time that they have.

The myth of multi-tasking will be exploded and replaced with mindfulness – enabling focus in the moment. Participants will explore how mindfulness can be applied to problem-solving, conflict management and empathy – leading to greater understanding, faster results and greater harmony.

The research of psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, the father of ‘flow’, will be used to give participants the tools to get in a flow state where their productivity is optimised. 

Mindfulness and flow are fantastic tools and ways of being, but when should someone use them? The course looks at the other major impact on productivity, time - how to decide what to spend it on.

Participants will leave an action packed half-day with both tools and strategies to optimise their productivity.

In-House Training - We’ll focus on what matters most to you and tailor to your context

Face-to-Face, Live Online, or Hybrid Class Tailored to Your Needs

When you want a tailored learning experience targeting exactly what you want without bringing everyone physically together, the best choice is a Live Online Class run by PDT.

We tailor the content and activities to be specific to your current needs and the needs of the people and run the course in our usual activity-based workshop style training, however, the participants can all be offsite, or some can be in the room with others offsite.

Unless you have a preferred tools we use 'Zoom for Education' that includes enhanced collaboration features such as One-click content sharing, real-time co-annotation (people can work together in activity files), and digital whiteboarding, we also include things like live polls and group chats so you virtually have the same collaborative learning experience of attending a course in a room with other people.

live online & hybrid

We have delivered these 100's (if not 1000's) of times, and get great outcomes. We achieve great outcomes because we keep our learner centric approach - just because it’s delivered through a screen to some or all participants doesn’t mean it needs to be less tailored or less personalised.

You still have an expert trainer who talks to you prior to the session and tailors the delivery to use your terminology, ensure activities are relevant and directly applicable and ensures an engaging learning experience that provide people with skills and techniques they can apply the very next day.

A hybrid class is with some people connecting online, and some people physically together in the same room.
