Productivity in Focus: Working at home – Wednesday 2 November 2022

Register for a place

A calm and focused online coaching retreat designed especially for anyone who finds working from home has reduced their productivity and focus. The day is designed to offer protected productivity whilst also learning to use ‘staying focused’ and anti-procrastination techniques to deal with performance gremlins and improve productivity. 

Learning outcomes

Learn a number of ‘staying focused’ techniques

Learn how to self-coach during stressful situations and regain control 

Learn how to identify powerful thought patterns to reduce stress

“I found the session highly productive as I was able to complete my tasks, achieve my targets in full and remain focussed and on track throughout the sessions; something I usually find very difficult when lone working at home. It really did change the feel of my workplace making it more like a professional setting than a home. For anyone currently thrust into a home working environment, having this support would be highly effective in training them to be as efficient and effective as possible when lone working.”

Judith Green. M.Ed, NPQH  FFCCT. Headteacher (Retired). Education consultant.

 “This is an opportunity to get things done. I now have less on my to do list which is relaxing. The course is very useful for people who have a habit of putting things off.”

Clinical trainee and PhD researcher, NHS East Midlands 2020

 Eye opener and empowering. Showing yourself what you’re capable of when focused and accountable.”
