Getting Things Done

Going beyond time management to the real source of productivity, effectiveness and getting things done


Many of us are good at planning and talking about what needs to get done, but very few follow through and turn those visions and wishes into action and make them happen. Procrastination is one of the reasons why leaders sometimes are not as effective as they can be. The lack of motivation or inspiration also affects performance and leave people stuck from time to time. This course is all around how to get in motion and how to get things done. This course covers time management but it goes beyond simple time management techniques to really address the issue of productivity, procrastination, effectiveness and getting things done.

“When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it”
