Course Outline / Curriculum
You will spend the first part of the day getting to know participants and discussing what will take place during the workshop. Students will also have an opportunity to identify their personal learning objectives.
Understanding Personal Efficiency
To start, participants will explore what personal productivity means to them and others, and what it might feel like. We will also discuss how personal productivity is similar to (and different from) basic time management.
Developing the Right Attitude
This session will give participants some useful attitudes to cultivate and some skills that they might want to work on. You will also discuss why multi-tasking is a myth.
Laying the Foundation
Your daily and weekly task lists are in fact only the tip of your personal to-do list. This session will show participants how to create a strong foundation for their daily plan: a vision statement, dreams, and goals.
The Building Blocks of a Good Organizational System
After the lunch break, participants will brainstorm a list of characteristics of a good organizational system. You will also explore Pareto's principle, also known as the 80/20 rule.
Creating the Right Environment
This session will focus on how to purge a workspace, design it for efficiency, and re-organize it. We will also introduce our filing system and our daily information management system: the incubator.
Setting up your Virtual Environment
Next, we will take a closer look at organizing electronic files and e-mail.
Setting up Your Information Management Center
Day Two will begin with an overview of the four components of an information management center: calendar, tasks lists, communications log, and projects notebook. To reinforce learning, participants will review three case studies and then create their own.
Managing Information in Six Easy Steps
This session will introduce the GOPHER model of handling information. Participants will then apply the knowledge to a case study.
Prioritizing Your Tasks
Next, participants will learn how to prioritize work with the Eisenhower principle, also known as the urgent-important matrix.
In this session, participants will explore different ways of saying no.
Participants will discover the importance of routine through an exercise and a large group discussion.
Stopping Procrastination Now (Not Later!)
This session will give participants some ways to tackle those tasks that they have been putting off. Participants will also complete a Challenge to Change.
Applying Our Lessons at Home
The final session of this workshop will give participants to organize key areas at home, including chores, exercise, and meals.
At the end of the day, students will have an opportunity to ask questions and fill out an action plan.
