Course Detail

You will leave this intensive workshop with a clear plan to manage your habit of procrastinating.

We begin the session by examining everyone’s issues with their workload.

We then move to looking at strategies for overcoming the different drivers of procrastination.

The content will be customised for each group but will typically include:

  • Why do we procrastinate? What does it achieve?
  • Analysing your work and role – What is your role? What should you be focusing on? How does what you “should” do differ from what you actually do on a typical day?
  • ‘Comfort tasks’ – What jobs do you use to avoid less comfortable work?
  • Chunking – Breaking large ‘scary’ projects into much more manageable, approachable tasks.
  • Planning – Taking time to look at your diary to ensure you aren’t procrastinating.
  • Distractions – Making sure that distractions remain just that and aren’t used to avoid key priorities.
  • Your plan moving forward
