Skills For Improved Productivity

Course Overview

Course Introduction

Every one of us experiences multiple personal and professional concerns every day, and at times we are not able to manage the entire ecosystem effectively. Productivity consultant David Allen is an expert in helping individuals keep their sanity intact and effectively manage their life with his productivity system.
In this course, Allen explains his popular Get it Done (GTD) system, which includes the five-step process he recommends for gaining control of “your kitchen, job, company or country”. He shares how to use a simple methodology to cut through the chaos, how to get clarity out of chaos, and how to handle the burden of multiple projects or to-do elements on a constant basis. He talks about how a person can absorb new information and process it in a manner that constantly prioritizes what needs to be acted on.
