Frequently Asked Questions​

Getting Things Done®(GTD®) Training helps improve employee productivity by teaching the skills to manage the constant flow of requests, tasks, and interruptions people face at all levels of the organisation. By learning how to capture, clarify, and organise incoming requests, people are more likely to make strategic decisions about where to invest their time and energy, be efficient at work, focus on the right priorities, and prevent critical projects from slipping. They are less likely to experience stress and burnout – more likely to experience workplace productivity.

Nobody gets a degree in productivity. You hire people for their technical skills and experience—because they know how to develop programs, design products, oversee communications, devise strategies, or lead people. But few—if any—are well versed in workflow management and being truly efficient at work. And when even just a couple of people fumble, their slip-ups significantly and negatively impact stress levels, innovation, execution, engagement, workplace efficiency and overall employee productivity.

GTD teaches your skilled knowledge workers at every level and in any role how to better get work done efficiently so they can effectively put their valuable, technical skills and experience to use.

Based on the New York Times bestseller of the same title, GTD Training teaches participants how to:

  • Capture all incoming requests in a few key places
  • Process your inbox more effectively
  • Take action on tasks rather than procrastinating
  • Organise tasks and projects to maximise workplace efficiency
  • Do the right things in the right moments
  • Align time and resources to be productive, not just busy

Most people consider Getting Things Done® (GTD®) a personal development experience. The name itself portends a boost in personal productivity. And yet Getting Things Done is not simply about getting more things done—although it does deliver on that promise. It’s about getting more of the right things done by changing the way you interact with your priorities, should-dos, need-to-dos, and even want- or hope-to-dos.

 

It’s this promise that hooks people in the beginning, but the benefits aren’t solely confined to individual workplace efficiency and workplace productivity. When GTD is adopted and fully implemented, its benefits extend to those around the individual practitioner. It changes the way the person engages with their own “to-dos,” and, because of that, it changes the way others engage with that person. Over time, it brings about an inside-out transformation.
