Work Smarter: Live Better

with Cyril Peupion

Events - 8 Sep 2011

Delivered by Cyril Peupion, author of Work Smarter, Live Better, this workshop focused on challenging current work habits to create behaviour change regarding how people execute their work on a daily basis.

Too many emails, never getting to the end of the to-do-list, out of control diary and not being able to leave work at a reasonable time are some of the challenges we face on a daily basis. This workshop explored simple, practical tools to move from reactive to proactive and allow you to have more control at work.

Some of Cyril's advice included:

  • Don't leave your email until you've made a decision.
  • High performance = no interruptions or distractions (we are interrupted on average every 3 minutes!)
  • Do not underestimate the power of a clean desk.
  • Effectiveness needs to scroll down, start from the top (managers, CEO's).
  • Your calendar should be used to record your time, not just meetings (but also plan for at least 2 hours of interruptions a day)
  • Think quarterly (high impact activities), plan weekly (schedule in your diary), act daily (it is ok to say NO)
