“My apologies for getting back at such a late date regarding your Problem-Solving Course. My feedback and comments are all positive. I was surprised to see the amount of information given in the participants manual. Thank you! It never fails that I need to add information into the participant manual. I also was glad to see the increased amount of participant activities. Participants want to be involved more in exploring the skills being transferred – this course provides more activities. I can see how many of the activities provided can be used in group settings to increase participant transfer of knowledge. Overall, this product is great. It allows for customization toward everyone’s own use while allowing the trainer to maintain the core knowledge of information to be taught in a clear and concise manner. Thank you and great job.”

“When you have an urgent need to prepare training the best thing to do is order from Oak. We thank them for the great materials that they have prepared. A little permitted company-specific customization by us was enough to present a virtually perfect training session in our company. After this test, we ordered another 10 modules – easily and conveniently. In addition, I received an incredibly good service with a personal touch to the client-specific requirements.”

Course outline

In an effort to provide you with as much value as possible, we’re going to show you how we would use the content provided to deliver the key sections of this training course.

Introduction – Of the many hats that your audience can wear every day, which one would they say is productive? This is an important question. Of course, productivity can mean different things to different people. And, for some, they mightn’t know what you are referring to, or what exactly they may need to change. Use the content provided to explore examples of productivity in action.

Personal productivity – Managing our time is one of the fundamental steps in a journey to higher productivity. Experience has identified that for a time management system to be useful, specific criteria are needed. For example, the technique must be functional (it must meet its purpose), it must be simple, it should be portable, and you need to use it.

For best results, use the content provided to focus on time management. And, in particular, the benefits of effective time management techniques.

Proactive versus reactive work – We all need to be productive at times in our lives. Otherwise, how else could we manage time successfully? At this stage in the course, you must examine productive work versus reactive work.

You may want to add a company or industry-specific examples to the content to further ground learning. Be sure to take your time and, wherever possible, encourage feedback from your audience. Use the content also to explore the role of planning. And, examine the critical concept of urgency versus importance.

Procrastination – Overcoming procrastination requires stress management skills, especially when we do not know how to avoid it. Use the content to explore fundamental aspects like making commitments, crisis management, and SMART objectives.

Obstacles to personal productivity – Today, course audience is more discerning than they’ve ever been. And, a great way to keep them engaged is to give them content that provides value and with real-life examples.

Creating that link between your content and personal experiences helps tackle several areas that will matter to your audience. For example, the course concludes with a discussion of some of the critical aspects of communication. Then, use the content provided to examine clarity and delegation skills. And use the material provided to discuss how to remove obstacles to personal productivity.
