Faculty workshop: Time Management: Getting Things Done (GTD)

May 19, 2023  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Research shows that mental clutter, or information overload, has significant negative effects on our productivity, relationships, happiness and overall quality of life. It’s the stuff that keeps us up at night, reduces our focus on what is important, and prohibits us from getting things done.

Getting Things Done (GTD) fundamentals training teaches a behavior?based skillset that individuals can immediately apply to create focus, organize information and master workflow.

What is GTD training?

Getting Things Done (GTD) training is a one-day course that teaches individuals the skills to focus their attention on things that matter most, prioritize commitments, increase personal productivity, and create more mental space for innovation at work and at home.

Who needs GTD training?

Are you always busy, but rarely productive? Do you start your day with good intentions and finish your day further behind? Are you letting others (or yourself) down because you can’t follow through on commitments? If you are falling victim to mental clutter, work overload, and the overwhelming anxiety that comes from too much, GTD Training is for you.

This is a two-part workshop. Participants must attend both sessions.

Sept. 6 and Sept. 13
8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
