Busy vs Productive Behaviours

Purchase for $85.00 (AUD) incl. GST

New insights into the way to assign work & set goals for performance & productivity

How are you? Busy. 

That seems to be the standard conversation no matter where you are and who you meet.  It’s talked about as a source of pride – that if you aren’t busy, then you’re not important, or doing anything worthy.

But in all the madness of rushing about doing things – are we getting anything done?  Consider those days full of meetings – you’ve been busy, with hardly time for a lunch break.  But you haven’t made a dent in that pile of work on your desk. 

This busy vs productive dilemma has been highlighted by the shift to remote working and learning - where 8-hour days turned into always being accessible, and busy has taken on a whole new meaning.

In this 90-minute webinar, Maria Andrews tackles the myths of multitasking, productiveness and encourages leaders to look at new ways of measuring productivity and the value assigned to work and performance.  This session will give team leaders, supervisors and managers new insights into the way they assign work and set goals for performance and productivity.
