Henley Partnership: Masterclass – Crazy busy

Henley Partnership: Masterclass – Crazy busy

Full of new research and practical tools, after Crazy Busy™ you will focus on your priorities, set boundaries and regain that lost day.

– Exclusive to Henley Partnership members –

25% of our time is spent on ‘organisational drag’: activities that feel like work but don’t create value. That’s a lost day per week.

Full of new research and practical tools, after Crazy Busy™ you will focus on your priorities, set boundaries and regain that lost day.

Benefits include:

  • Accelerate team productivity by controlling distractions and interruptions
  • Manage more efficiently, including upwards
  • Choose what to pay attention to
  • Manage your perfectionism, procrastination and inability to push back and say ‘No’
  • Stop feeling overwhelmed

Learning outcomes

By the end of the event you will have:

  • Techniques to accelerate productivity and wellbeing in your organisation: clustering interruptions; working more quickly through low-priority tasks like emails; tracking meeting effectiveness; and building in strategic thinking time. You’ll learn to PIMP your schedule to build in time for your priority tasks, rather than get bogged down in low-impact activities.
  • Become a ‘lawnmower manager’ who clears the path for the team, smoothing processes and removing bottlenecks to make the workflow more efficient. Simply facilitating your team to make daily incremental progress towards their goals is proven to boost engagement and motivation more than other leadership interventions.
  • Understood the cost of ‘switch-tasking’ – continually moving between tasks, rather than concentrating fully on one thing at once. Instead, you will build flow time into your schedule. People who work in flow for up to two hours a day are proven to be five times more effective and to work less hours than their multi-tasking crazy busy colleagues.

“I was at your Crazy Busy seminar and wanted to say a huge thank you for the very powerful and expertly delivered message; it has been critical in helping me cut through the overwhelm and focus on what’s important. I now feel much more in control of my working life!”

Dereka Symes, Finance Director, Ground Control Ltd
