How to deliver a training course on personal productivity skills

Over the last few years, we’ve been working hard at developing personal productivity training courses. In truth, we see a considerable demand for these training courses. And, we believe we’re just at the beginning of this demand.

This personal-productivity skills training course can be delivered to meet the challenges faced by line-staff, human resource professionals, general managers, and senior executives by exploring ways to improve their productivity.

At Oak Innovation, we completely shrink the “time needed to create training content”. We even encourage you to add your logo and company-specific examples to deliver the content as your own.

You might already know this but we always talk a lot about creating the right environment to deliver a training course. Things like meeting the needs of your audience are central and offering as much value to them as possible are essential.

With this in mind, there are a few things to remember when delivering this training course.

To start with, many people haven’t found their ultimate level of productivity. Some haven’t even started looking for it, or maybe they reached it but didn’t accept or relate to it. This is something we often hear from customers with time management training needs.

When you’re delivering this content always remember that productivity means achieving goals by organizing tasks, managing time, and staying focused on what we want to accomplish.

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.
