When you focus on setting specific and attainable goals, you can end your day feeling accomplished and fulfilled rather than worn-out and frustrated.
At Leadership Dynamics, Inc., we find that our clients sometimes think that simply working harder or longer will solve their problems. More hours clocked at the office will improve productivity, right? On the contrary, in over 30 years of experience, we have found that doing more of the same thing for longer hours is not the answer. Overloading yourself with work only leads to a lower quality of life, diminishing returns, and ultimately burnout. Our Effective Personal Productivity course helps clients understand the importance of managing their time and energy through focused planning and careful prioritizing. By setting and achieving clear, specific goals at work and home, we help participants create a more balanced life. A balanced life, in turn, enhances overall well-being as well as productivity at work, creating a cycle of positive momentum. A client who took our course wrote:
“I had a lot of issues prior to starting this class with time management and the constant redirection and interruptions I had. It was difficult to feel any sense of accomplishment. That made me feel like I was not being successful for the company nor myself. In an effort to change that, I thought that if I started to work more hours, I could get more done. It helped me to get more done, but other areas of my life were suffering and I was still not getting done what I had expected...”
In our culture, the term “workaholic” has--sadly--become a badge of honor. When we take a closer look at the lifestyle it represents, however, does it yield the high quality of life we want? Workaholics may feel productive professionally, but all too often they make sacrifices in their family and personal lives that they later regret. By taking the time to plan and set specific, measurable goals, while developing a determined focus on your highest payoff activities, you can create a lifestyle that fosters productivity and accomplishment without sacrificing your overall well-being.

At Leadership Dynamics, we realize that each participant has different needs; while our courses provide a breadth of information, our goal is to focus on what works for the individual. This client found that breaking down his annual and quarterly goals into weekly action steps, he had a better sense of control and accomplishment. He wrote that:
“When you focus on one [goal] at a time and plan your time so it is something that is feasible to complete, you feel accomplished and not frustrated.”
At Leadership Dynamics, our mission is not only to help you find your next level of success, but also to help you maintain those results and enjoy a more fulfilling life. Are you ready to take the next step? You can register for our upcoming courses here or contact us here.
