I found all contact with your office was dealt with in both a timely and professional manner and the training itself was excellent.
North East Community Support Group Inc.
I loved the instant chat feature on your website. Chris was a great help and gave us a prompt delivery of quotes and other information about the courses that pd training offer. Pd training was able to cater specifically to our needs and were flexible with the delivery style of our course. Overall, I am very impressed at the professionalism we encountered. We will definitely be considering pd training again for our future 'in house' training needs.
Petronas
Best part of the day is that there was a lot of interactive presentations which made things "sink" in so much easier. Excellent course. Regards Andrea

Richard was a fantastic trainer. I found it very fun and interactive and got so much out of the day.
Alpha Flight Services
Course moulded to suit attendees requirements / group engagement & participation very good.

Key highlights: Establishing a daily routine, the four d's for dealing with in-trays, and office-space management. I also really appreciate pd training's flexibility in coming to our workplace to provide the in-house training at relatively short notice.

Melbourne Library Service
Facilitator was very engaging and everyone participating. Always with a smile.
Housing Choices Australia
Siobhan was a fantastic/engaging speaker. I was a bit skeptical when I found out that the training was for a whole day.... I thought " what is she going to tell me for one full day.... it will be a waste of my day..." But 4.30 came and I was still hanging for more information.
University of Melbourne
Siobhan was a pleasure. She had a friendly smile and warm personality yet professional and knowledgeable. I have attended quite a few time management courses but she was so engaging that I was delighted that I attended and the information provided was very informative. Keep up the great work.
University of Melbourne
The presentation and facilitator were brilliant - best training experience I've had in a while. I've already implemented some of the ideas (which is a surprise to me!). Thank you.
Electrical Safety Office - Electrical Licensing
Vicky was extremely knowledgeable and very approachable. The environment was relaxed and I came away thinking of different ways to manage my time both at work and personal life. The student manual was not really involved and at this point of time I have not had a chance to read it.
Electrical Safety Office - Electrical Licensing
Very simple terms and references, that are easy to understand and easy to remember! Thanks :)
Electrical Safety Office - Electrical Licensing
Best Metcash course I've EVER done in my 10 years with the company - should have made time to do it many years ago. The trainer was fantastic - knowledgeable, enthusiastic, professional & light-hearted - the time flew (which it rarely does in training sessions). The course was well-paced, topical & very applicable to the workplace & private time alike. I will make time to actually read the manual cover to cover. Thank you!
Metcash
Best facilitator I've ever had. Siobhan is a really excellent teacher.
Metcash
I thought that this was the most useful course I have ever done and have already implemented many changes in my working life. Siobhan was wonderful, she had my full attention - I'd certainly like to take other courses by this trainer - her knowledge and added value to this course was exemplary.
Metcash
Gave us some really good ideas in regards to our targets and goals.

Jack was flexible and was able to reduce a thorough one day course into a succinct half day course whilst not detracting a lot from what was to be learnt. An excellent job.
Maxim Accounting
Very well delivered, fun and informative. Tammy was very well spoken and catered the course to our industry very well. She was very engaging and remembered all our names and took interest in all our ideas and comments.

Very well presented course. The trainer was very knowledgeable and conveyed his message well.

Overall the session that I had with Sally, was most helpful. She was in sync with what I was wanting to get out of the meeting, and am absolutely sure that I will be in a much happier situation work wise.
Royal Australian Mint
Adrienne presented the most relevant topics to me as she spoke to me prior to the training. She provided me with a number of strategies to implement. I particularly liked the Productivity Journal, and set up of Working/Reference/Archive files.
SA Police
A big thank you to Kirsty for the training! I really enjoyed it and have learned some new skills I'm starting to put into practice, already making me feel less stressed and more able to effectively control my time. My desk is even starting to look neater already! Kirsty was also fantastic at handling the group and bringing the focus back to the work at hand in a very polite way when it came to people talking/getting off track - it was actually a non-intentionally provided skill simply because she was practicing it! She was also very professional and friendly with each of the different personalities in the class, giving every one the same attention and chance to be a part of the activities. A great day, a great set of skills and great people. Thank you. Jess.
LivingWell Media Pty Ltd
Kristy is a Gold trainer! Excellent way to communicate, very effective! Training was well structured and important points were conveyed over and over and it sunk well.

I would recommend this course to other people. thanks!
Nacap Australia
Various tools and processes in the day certainly helped me clarify "big issue" decisions and goals for myself. Such clarity has the potential to make a huge positive difference to the next twenty years of my life, so that's no small outcome.
CRCC
Fantastic course, teacher was very interactive and knowledgeable, did not lose interest. Great techniques.
Applied Medical
Enjoyed more I think because it was a small group.
Orchard Marketing
Michael was a great facilitator in adapting the course to what we wanted/needed out of it. He was genuinely interested in why we were there, and structured the course to give us the maximum benefit.Thank you.
Engineering Education Australia Pty Ltd
It was very good. In fact one of the best comments made by the trainer related to my personality type (being quite visual)and the importance for me in keeping my work environment clear of clutter and distractions. I have put this into practise not only at work but in my car and at home and have noticed improvements in the management of my work.
Hillscorp Pty Ltd
Excellent course. I have come away feeling extremely motivated, as well as more knowledgeable. Great trainer. Gail's energy was infectious.

Our trainer incorporated our workplace within the training to show us how effective these changes would be.
CSL Biotherapies
Derrick was a great trainer and I learned a lot from the training course. It really helped me confirm areas of improvement to become an effective trainer. The course also gave me confidence to back myself more as areas of what I do well to keep doing them. Thank you for a great course.
Supercorp Pty Ltd
All the team at PD Training were very friendly and helpful.
Catercare Services
Undertaking this training session has been giving me the opportunity to advance my skills in preparation and planning areas, how to run the training session or to train more effectively. The information, the resources, the life experiences that the trainer has provided has exceeded my expectations. The topics, the discussions, activities and abet of games and the feedback are very helpful throughout. Because its a small group, which is preferable, I got more chances to ask questions to help me understand fully and supportive. Other two participants are also supportive, which I am comfortable to work with, I also leant a lot from their life experiences. At the end of the session, I am able to step out of my comfort zone, growth in my confidentiality and how to structure/plan a training session, its an absolute relevant and beneficial knowledge that I will use/assist for my workplace in future.
Honda MPE
Steve was fabulous, he had credibility and was motivated. He listened as well as spoke and allowed us to explore training in a approach that made sense, and allowed us to want to know more. Top trainer!
Brad Teal Real Estate
Thoroughly enjoyed the course and found it easy to apply when back in the workplace.
CSR
I found this course great in that I had it gave me a guideline and factors to consider when training people that I was not aware of. It also provided me with things that I should take into consideration when training others. This course has greatly benefited my future training methods. Anne was great.
Armstrong Legal
Very informative. Highly beneficial.
Siemens
The presenter was excellent. Her attention to each participants' aims of the workshop were attended to very well. She directed the training to specific modules which were helpful to particular participants and skimmed over modules that were not as applicable to us. I appreciated her style of teaching and presenting and would recommend her as a trainer to other people.
Salvation Army
I really enjoyed the course and how we all were able to put in place everyone's needs for time management. It was a great day.
Comvita
Troy was great and we had a really good group. I can't wait to put things into practice.

Foreword:

Most of us have, at one time or another, felt daunted and overwhelmed by the number of tasks and commitments that have been pushed in our direction. The key to tackling this situation is effective time management.

Understanding, identifying and defining your long-term goals is the very first step for an effective time management plan. With the broader goal in the background, you can now set your short-term goals that will effectively lead you to achieving the long-term goals in your life.

One skill that is prevalent in all leaders of repute is time management. People who use these techniques routinely are the highest achievers in all walks of life, from business to sport to public service. Managing time well enables you to be in control of your life; it allows you to act on situations rather than react to situations.

When reacting to situations you are ill-prepared and under stress, so your action is far from your optimum capacity. Whereas, when you act on situations, it is well planned and thus allows you to function at your highest. At the heart of time management is an important shift in focus: Concentrate on results, not on being busy. This is a one of the most important time management skills. Many people spend their days in a frenzy of activity, but achieve very little because they are not concentrating on the right things.

According to the Pareto Principle, or the ‘80:20 Rule’, typically 80% of unfocused effort generates only 20% of results. The remaining 80% of results are achieved with only 20% of the effort.

By applying the skills taught in the Time Management Workshops, you can optimise your efforts to ensure that you concentrate as much of your time and energy as possible on the high payoff tasks. This ensures that you achieve the greatest benefit possible with the limited amount of time available to you. Contrary to popular belief, effective time management is not based on doing more things in less time.

This Time Management Training course is about doing the right things and doing them better.

3. Physical Products - visual reminders to keep key concepts alive

Many of the 'aha' moments in courses can come from the increased awareness of ourselves and our colleagues, these come through the REACH Profiles that is integrated into many of our courses.

The insights lead us to better recognise our tendencies and strengths, understand how to be more mindful of adapting to the needs and preferences of our team and our customers.

The insights are put into practice by appreciating the benefits of our diversity and either learning to adapt or implementing a strengths-based management approach.

We have a great range of high quality products that can keep these impactful moments top of mind back in the workplace.

REACH to my Team
Visualizer / Reminder

The REACH Team Visualizer/Reminder can be used in multiple ways in both training and in the office. When displayed in a high traffic area REACH will be kept top of mind. Below are guidelines for use of the REACH Team Visualizer / Reminder which is also in downloadable format.

The REACH Team Visualizer / Reminder comes in two sizes of A0 841 x 1189 mm and A1 594 x 841 mm and is made from a sturdy 5mm corflute.

REACH to my Team Visualizer / Reminder guidelines for use

  • For this activity the simplest way to plot all participants on the REACH Grid is by generating TEAM Insights Report from the REACH Ecosystem which will give the position of everyone participating.
  • Place the REACH Team Visualizer / Reminder on a flat surface, preferably a wall, where it is clearly visible. Ask participants to mark their REACH position on the grid with a sticky dot. Recommend that participants put their initials on the sticky dot so they can easily locate themselves later. Each person’s REACH can revealed one at a time in a group activity. This allows for everyone to identify the dynamic that they will have with each other. Are they in the same quadrant or are the polar opposites? How do they "REACH" each other?
  • When you construct this activity with participants who have not seen their REACH score, they begin to develop a sense of self-awareness and their blind spots as well as of those around them.
  • The REACH Team Visualizer / Reminder is a powerful way to keep Team Dynamics and REACH alive. It can be revisited on a regular basis, people can be added, removed or moved by simply adding, removing or moving dots.

Keep it Alive
REACH Cubes

REACH Cubes are designed to build empathy and grow an appreciation for thinking differently. They encourage productive and positive interactions in the workplace, workshop or personal development sessions. They can be used in any creative way to grow REACH and below we have provided two recommended activities for use. The REACH Cubes pack comes with 4 REACH Cubes one representing each REACH Quadrant. Each REACH Cube is 7.5 cm squared and are made from durable EVA Foam.

Keep it Alive REACH Cubes Activity 1 – Thinking Outside the Square

When people are participating in activities during REACH workshops, training or personal development sessions provide each participant with a REACH Cube and ask them to complete the activity or interaction Thinking and Behaving based on what REACH Cube was provided to them.

Are they the Advisor focused on detail and doing?

or a Coach focused on People and Action?

This brings a whole new level of empathy building and appreciation for the strength of thinking differently.

Keep it Alive REACH Cubes Activity 2 – Grow Your REACH in your space

After REACH has been introduced using the REACH Training continue to keep REACH alive in the workplace by providing each person with a set of 4 REACH cubes to take back to their work space.

Personal REACH and the REACH of their colleagues can be grown by using these cubes on a regular basis with these great ideas:

The Desk Stack:

Stack your REACH Cubes on your desk and on top of the stack place the cube that is reflecting your current REACH zone. Ensure that you have the side that says “Thanks for dropping by, right now I am in my __________ quadrant” facing outward so those approaching your work space know how you are feeling and acting at that current time. This is designed to help those around you recognise different behaviours/responses they may or may not receive from you based on the situation and REACH zone.

Think Before I Act:

Use your REACH Cubes to be mindful of your interactions with others. Whilst interacting use the cubes to review your behaviours and actions. Take up the cube of the quadrant you currently feel you are in and review these sides: Think before I act: Is this what I need to be right now? Flip the cube over to the side of the profile overview and think about the style in which you are Communicating, Conflict-handling, Delegating etc. Is this what you need to be to REACH the person you are interacting with? If not find the REACH Cube that best suits the situation and maximises your REACH with that person and use the profile overview to help guide your interaction.

Download REACH Cubes Activity File

Learn to REACH
Labels

Learn to REACH Labels are a great low-cost substitute for the REACH Caps or REACH Cubes or the more physically interactive REACH Floor Mat. They work well in small and large team activities and can be used as a quick way to identify how others act and think through a different quadrant that is not theirs. They can learn to appreciate the different communication, conflict handling, delegating, planning and learning styles of others and through this increase their REACH.

The REACH Labels are made of a high quality fabric sticky labels that are designed to last all day training sessions.

These work well after training when stuck to people’s monitors or workstations.
