Thank you for attending the Mastering Workplace Performance seminar, on 31 May 2012.
Over the past 5 and a half years of presenting this workshop, I’ve rarely come across a group as focused and dedicated to getting better as you all were. I really couldn’t believe how quickly the day went by.
Now that you’re back at your desk, and focused implementation, here is some information you can use to make your best…better. Of course, the first thing to do is to figure out what, of the three areas we focused on, you want to start working on first. From a very high-level perspective, there are three main things we studied over the course of the day:
1. Psychology of Productivity: The ways that you think about how you think.
2. Sociology of Productivity: The way you work together…better.
3. Technology of Productivity: The tools and gear that you use to get your work done.
Now you have a chance to dive in deeply and decide where the biggest benefit to you, your workflow, and your experience of workplace performance will ultimately be. Keep on reading, and I’ll provide you with as much as I can by way of “getting started.” (Of course, this is all based on having led hundreds of one-on-one coaching sessions where we do exactly that: Get Started.
If I can suggest a beginning point, I’d recommend you read the first 40 pages of my book, Your Best Just Got Better: Work Smarter, Think Bigger, Make More (Wiley, hardcover, 2012). You can download that as a PDF at NO CHARGE (yes, absolutely free) right over here… Save it as a PDF, print it, even share it with your friends. We have found that when people share these ideas with their colleagues there begins another level of accountability to implementing those ideas.
Next, scroll through the slide-deck below. These are “most” of the slides that I worked from during the course of the day (due to space limitations, I did have to delete the videos). As you go through each one, consider reviewing the workbook you wrote in during the course. There are notes and ideas you captured there that can be very valuable later on.
