A deep-dive into the psychology of personal productivity for individuals and coaches
21 February 2024
Do you want to stop stressing about being productive, and start getting important stuff done?
Productivity is not about filling time: it is about focusing on the stuff that really matters. Setting goals and achieving them, rather than avoiding, procrastinating, or giving up. But how do you actually do that? What’s the step-by-step process for avoiding procrastination, improving grit, or cutting back on something you are emotionally attached to, to free up time for a more critical project?
In this course, we’ll learn that.
Whether you want to increase your personal productivity or coach others to achieve their potential, this course draws on a range of research from positive psychology, humanistic psychology and cognitive behavioural coaching to help you conquer your goals and feel good while doing it.
Throughout the course, you will develop a holistic view of productivity that incorporates satisfaction and wellbeing. We will explore the importance of self-acceptance and self-talk, identify our values and strengths, and utilise practical solutions to overcome common barriers to productivity.
