Whether you’re a student in school, an emerging adult or a career professional, let’s face it: our time is precious. But we are routinely faced with productivity traps, which can rob us of our time, destroy our sense of accomplishment, and threaten our personal effectiveness. Especially in the digital age. Despite our best efforts, even the brightest and best among us have to work hard to fight back against distraction. According to research on productivity in the workplace, mindless busyness and misplaced attention can have high costs for organizations and individuals alike.
Chances are that it would mean everything. However, we often don’t know what we don’t know. And that’s why it’s crucial to develop self-awareness in the areas of productivity, organization and time management. Because when you least expect it, even the most innocent tasks can drag you down a rabbit hole of distraction and lead you into a zone of UNproductivity.
If you didn’t know better, you might think that this was a matter of willpower, but that’s simply not the case, because much of will is skill. And when skills are lagging, problems go unsolved.
If you find yourself saying “there has to be a better way!” there’s good news! Recent research has revealed that a key to better productivity and performance is a set of skills that comprise the executive branch of our brain’s ‘governmental’system. Learning to cultivate these executive function skills can unlock the ability to enhance personal and team productivity.
Our workshops and coaching sessions focus on skill development and problem solving, because productivity and time management are drivers for learning and performance. Whether working with adults or youth in schools, families, or organizations, it’s important to make the effort to develop executive function skills. Our coaching sessions and workshops aim to increase awareness of, and effectiveness with, six core areas of executive functioning in the brain, including:
What we do is empower clients through one-on-one coaching and group training to minimize distraction and maximize performance in their lives. Our strengths-based approaches are personalized for clients, and based on a simple notion of brain-based learning: values drive action. Through deliberate practice with skill-based exercises, one can take charge of their own attention and maintain better control over their time and productivity. Developing the skills necessary for high performance, and leveraging the available tools to help one succeed, are at the core of what we do to help individuals and teams in their personal, professional and academic lives.
